In a comprehensive post on ZDnet, Jason Perlow writes about the new and upcoming version of Windows Server 8.

Microsoft demonstrated the ability to literally “beam” — a la Star Trek — a virtual machine between two Hyper-V hosts with only an IP connection.”

The full article is a must read for anybody interested in Cloud Computing, Virtualization and new generation operating systems.

Another quote:

“… Server 8 changes everything, particularly from a complete virtualization and storage value proposition. CIOs are going to be very hard pressed to resist the product simply from all the stuff that you get built-in that you would otherwise have to spend an utter fortune on with 3rd-party products…”

A must read, even if you prefer Linux or OS/390.
