Microsoft's virtualization products address customer needs from the data center to the desktop. For the data center, we offer Microsoft Virtual Server and we recently announced beta availability and the upcoming launch of our enterprise-quality Hyper-V hypervisor, which will be a key feature of Microsoft Windows Server 2008. On the desktop side, Microsoft Terminal Services virtualizes the presentation process, and Microsoft Application Virtualization lets you run applications without installing them on desktops.
