System Center Virtual Machine Manager demo at WinHEC

System Center Virtual Machine Manager demo at WinHEC

  • Comments 2

Following up the Windows virtualization demonstration today in Bill Gates' keynote - we also had demonstrations of the upcoming System Center Virtual Machine Manager (codenamed 'Carmine').  This is really cool.  Some key features that were demonstrated today:

  • Physical to virtual conversion of server workloads
  • Creation of new virtual machines from a template library
  • Intelligent placement of virtual machines in a server farm
  • The 'Self Service portal'

The self service portal is really cool.  This is a web interface that allows users to create and manage a restricted set of virtual machines - as defined by an administrator - all over the web.

Cheers,
Ben

  • If anyone out there is familiar with the Akimbi product, I would be interested to know how this compares to that product.
