SCVMM 2008 announcements at MMS2008

It was announced earlier and I showed some pictures in an entry some time ago, but Tuesday it was announced at Microsoft’s Management Summit (MMS) 2008 by Bob Muglia during one of the keynotes: Service Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) 2008 will manage a heterogeneous virtual datacenter. SCVMM will be capable of managing Hyper-V, VI3 and Xen side by side. Together with this message also the public beta of VMM 2008 was announced. Thanks to my colleague and friend Omar (, who is attending the MMS event and wrote an item on it Tuesday evening (European timezone that is..).

I also stumbled upon a post of Geert Baeke at :: SCVMM 2008 and VMware integration. In his post he describes his efforts installing SCVMM and integrating Hyper-V, VI3 (virtual center) and MS Virtual Server. He also put some screenshots in his post so check it out!
