Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 SP1

What extras are include in SP1 Hyper-V Server 2008 R2?

  • Dynamic Memory: better utilize memory resources by balancing how memory is distributed between virtual machines.  It can be dynamically reallocated between these virtual machines in response to greater workload demands within these VM’s.  It allows consistent workload scalability and performance therefore making more efficient use of memory.
  • Remote FX: Basically, media rich user environments for virtual & session based desktops, while doing server side graphics processing.

I’ve always been a massive fan of vSphere, but is it time to move to Hyper-V now?  With each new service pack and update Hyper-V’s features bring it nearer and nearer to those of vSphere.

Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 R2, now with Service Pack 1 (SP1) provides new virtualization technologies that enable you to deliver more advanced capabilities to your business for increased IT efficiency and agility. Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 SP1 adds new features like Dynamic Memory and RemoteFX allowing you to better utilize memory resources of Hyper-V hosts and provide rich end user experience for VDI and session virtualization.
