I wanted to let you know that Microsoft delivered a feature complete release candidate (RC) of Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V™ broadly to customers and partners today. This is a key milestone signaling that Microsoft is on track to deliver Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V virtualization by August 2008.

In this release candidate of Hyper-V, there are three new areas of improvement including:
  • An expanded list of tested and qualified guest operating systems including: Windows Server 2003 SP2, Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 SP1, Windows Vista SP1, and Windows XP SP3.
  • Host server and language support has been expanded to include the 64-bit (x64) versions of Windows Server 2008 Standard, Enterprise, and Datacenter – with English, partial German, and partial Japanese language options now available and the ability to enable the English version of Hyper-V on other locales.
  • Improved performance & stability for scalability and throughput workloads.
