Tech-Ed 2011: Enhanced Virtualization Hardware Support Comes to Exchange 2010

Microsoft took the opportunity at Tech-Ed 2011, currently underway in Atlanta, Ga., to announce new improvements to Exchange 2010 that will avoid supported scenarios when running the software in a virtualized environment.

The new scenarios, available for those running Exchange 2010 SP1 or later, enhance Exchange and Unified Messaging by combining Database Availibility Groups (DAGs) with failover solutions and hypervisor-based clustering.

"Due to improvements we made in Exchange Server 2010 SP1, along with more comprehensive testing of Exchange 2010 in a virtualized environment, we are happy to provide this additional deployment flexibility to our customers," wrote Kevin Allison, general manager of the Exchange Customer Experience, in a TechNet blog posting.

"The updated support guidance applies to any hardware virtualization vendor participating in the Windows Server Virtualization Validation Program (SVVP)," he continued.
