Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 R2 Enterprise Edition

Are you reading this blog? I am sure you are. So, I expect you to post a comment to this entry, and after 24 hours from the original post I will draw two or three licenses of Microsoft Windows Virtual Server 2005 R2 Enterprise Edition.

The licenses are part of a batch I received to distribute to our Wellington Windows Mobile User Group, but since the next group meeting is not until end of April the vouchers will be expired by then. I am distributing these during some User Group meetings happening now (the Wellington Office User Group and the Wellington Tablet PC User Group).

The software is great for production and development environments (yes, these are full production copies, not demo or development ones!), and "enables multiple operating systems to run concurrently on a single machine. In particular, Microsoft Virtual [PC] products enable one or more operating systems to run on the same computer system as the current Windows operating system. Today, many x86-based operating systems are supported by Virtual PC 2004 and Virtual Server 2005."

The difference between Virtual PC and Virtual Server is "[Microsoft Virtual PC 2004 is a virtual machine solution for desktop operating systems.] Microsoft Virtual Server 2005, on the other hand, is a solution for server operating systems. Although Virtual PC and Virtual Server share many features in common, they are designed for different purposes. As a result, some of their features are also quite different. Microsoft has created a white paper that explains the differences between Virtual PC and Virtual Server, and discusses the scenarios in which it is appropriate to use one or the other."

Virtual Server 2005, Enterprise Edition, can be installed on machines with up to 32 physical processors.

So, what are you waiting? Comment away!
