Microsoft is planning to highlight three of its virtualization offerings — the recently-released-to-manufacturing Hyper-V, Virtual Machine Manager 2008 and Microsoft Desktop and Application Virtualization (which I’ve seen some Softies calling App-V).
From the “GetVirtualNow” event site:
“On September 8th, 2008 Microsoft will launch its new virtualization products. Now you can virtualize from the data center to the desktop, and manage with the same tools you’re already using for your physical infrastructure.”
According to the agenda for the launch, Microsoft also will be talking up Microsoft Enterprise Desktop Virtualization (MED-V), which, like its Desktop and Application Virtualization offering, is part of the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack (a collection of tools available to Software Assurance licensees only.
