[Virtualisation] Getting Started with Hyper-V

I’m going to be honest I hate Microsoft’s Virtualisation strategy or at least I did until now. I was born and bred on VMWare. I tried Virtual PC and it was OK. Virtual Server well even saying the name makes me cringe so you know my opinion on this.

But I’m someone that can forgive and forget most things and from what I’ve heard of Hyper-V it seems time for me to re-evaluate Microsoft’s virtualisation strategy. I’m also keen to look at System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM), as I’m hearing good things about this to.

Sure at the moment I’d say I have some general skills when it comes to non-ConfigMgr/ SMS products and maybe that’s a bad thing. However, I’ve decided to branch out a bit into the world of virtualisation as I can see a LOT of people going down this path which of course has some major implications not just from a ConfigMgr perspective and also across the field.

So I’m going to take the plunge and start reading up on Hyper-V and SCVMM sharing my experiences (and useful stuff I find), along the way starting with some useful links for Hyper-V:
