Microsoft opens Viridian technical preview to general public

By Alessandro Perilli

Just a couple of weeks after releasing Windows Server 2008 RC0 to TAP customers, Microsoft is ready to open the new build to general public. Since it includes a technical preview of upcoming Windows Server Virtualization (codename Viridian), this is the first time the new Microsoft hypervisor reaches such a wide audience.

Viridian adopts is a true bare-metal Virtual Machine Monitor (VMM) compared with existing Virtual Server 2005 R2 SP1, using a 64bit microkernel not derived  from existing Windows kernel which takes only 1 MB space on disk (but requires Intel VT or AMD-V extensions enabled on physical CPU) and finally supporting 64bit virtual machines (check the architecture here).

Update: Despite the information provided, it seems Viridian can create Windows Server 2003 virtual machines with 8 vCPUs.    >>>>>>
