Announced in November 2008, the integration between Visual Studio 2010 (download), System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) 2008 (download) and Hyper-V 1.0/2.0 (download) for virtual lab automation scenarios is now a reality called Visual Studio 2010 Lab Management. It lets you create and manage virtual environments on a pool of Hyper-V hosts and System Center Virtual Machine Manager library servers. You can group virtual machines into environments and perform life-cycle and snapshot operations on those machines. Lab Management also lets you automate the authoring and running of end-to-end application life-cycle management workflows.
