Virtualization Expo - Microsoft Matches VMware's Zero Price Tag

Matching VMware tit for tat, Microsoft Monday cut the anticipated price of its standalone, OS-detached, hypervisor to zip, zero, nada. When released sometime in the next 30 days, Hyper-V Server 2008 will be free for the download and can be used to consolidate both Windows and Linux workloads onto a single physical server. Microsoft previously said the standalone widgetry would cost $28 a head. The hypervisor is already bundled for free in Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V, which inspired VMware to make its standalone ESXi hypervisor free last month as bait to move users up to its flagship Infrastructure 3. Microsoft cut the price tag as it kicked off a saturation campaign on behalf of its virtualization mojo that it calculates will reach 250,000 customers and partners by the time it ends. Microsoft also gave the first public demonstration of Live Migration in Windows Serve... (more)
