On my first blog post about Hyper-V R2 which you can find here I received a lot of reactions and I always appreciate it to get any type of response (except the 380 spam comments per day). Most of the people agree with the statements and some don’t. I’d like to start this article with stating that it was not my intention to bash Hyper-V as a product, I really think Hyper-V is a great hypervisor, it’s the management what is creating the issues.
So now with the upcoming version of Hyper-V 2012, which will be released as a beta version on the 29th, I’d like to look at what’s changing in regard to my earlier article. Of course the complete hypervisor management architecture consist of Hyper-V and SCVMM 2012.
The focus of this article is (again) mainly on what it means for VDI scenarios however I think that most of the conclusions will go for whatever scenario.
So what’s new in Server 8, Hyper-V and SCVMM 2012 and why does it matter!
