Microsoft, of Redmond, Wash., is announcing that it plans to deliver the first release candidate of Windows Server 2008 later this month.

The first Community Technology Preview of Windows Server Virtualization, code-named Viridian, will be released at the same time, Larry Orecklin, Microsoft's general manager of marketing for System Center, said at a media event Sept. 10.

The company will also announce that partner Citrix Systems has committed to standardize on its VHD (Virtual Hard Disk) image format as a common run-time environment for both virtualized operating systems and applications, making it easier for mutual customers to deploy virtualization solutions, he said.
