Dave Northey: I do quite a bit of work with HP here in Ireland.  I was chatting to one of their consultants the other day and he was telling me about HP's Windows Server 2008 Academy (inserting the Windows Server 2008 chip into the back of their heads).  The Academy involved running 660 VMs in total, there's a webcast about setting it all up here:
