Microsoft Application Virtualisation for Servers

It’s not been a secret that MS has been working on this.  I was at a small meeting at TechEd EMEA where we were asked about this subject and whether it’s something we’d consider.  It’s an interesting idea … imaging a SQL instance being a mobile resource, or a web server being mobile?  That’s what we’re talking about.  Deploy instantly when you need extra resources, move resources around to balance workloads or for fault tolerance.

Microsoft did a demo of their new technology at MMS.  What’s really cool is that they appear to be reusing VMM for this.
