Slide 5

A promising new feature of Windows Server 2008 is its support for hypervisor-based virtualization. The feature, which Microsoft calls Hyper-V, enables administrators to host x86 or x86-64 operating systems on Windows Server 2008, and compares well to VMware's ESX Server and Citrix's XenEnterprise virtualization products.


A tour through Windows Server 2008 shows the server operating system to be leaner and more secure than ever before.
