MS Hyper-V Server: RTM in 30 Days and FREE!

We knew there was a specific build of Windows Server 2008 with Hyper-V (only) in the works.  It’s going to be an answer to the free VMware ESXi … a stripped down solution with no clustering functionality.  We expected there would be a cost to it … $28 plus whatever an OEM would charge.

Some details have been revealed.  A new SKU will RTM in less than 30 days and it will be free to download and use.  This is excellent for anyone wanting to get a cheap entry point into virtualisation on Microsoft’s platform.
