Virtual Machine Manager R2

System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2 (SCVMM 2008 R2) evaluation version -- whew, what a mouthful -- arrived this week.

Rambling name notwithstanding, it must work fairly well because System Center products remain a bright spot in Microsoft's recently slumping financials. IT pros can give SCVMM 2008 R2 a spin for 180 days and see if they want to buy it when the complete product rolls out in October. The new R2 can even manage virtual machines running on VMware vSphere 4.0 -- imagine that.
