Hyper-V Gains Utilities

Hyper-V is now a more than credible contender in the server hypervisor space and is gaining new features and tools everyday (not everyday, more like once a week). This week four new virt tools either debuted or got enhanced.

First up is not a Hyper-V tool per se, but a tool that helps App-V (the application virtualization product Microsoft acquired from Softricity) deploy Office 2010.

On the Hyper-V side we have:

  •  Virtual Machine Servicing Tool 3.0, which updates VMs when they are not online.
  • Hyper-V Best Practice Analyzer, which double checks your configurations.
  • And Linux Integration Services 2.1, which can now see if Linux guests are actually working.

Are you using Hyper-V and if so, are you moving away from VMware? Share your stories at [email protected]
