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 (http://oehoeven.spaces.live.com), 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 beake.info :: 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!
