The last few months have been interesting, to say the least. We’ve seen Windows Server 2012 released in September, and along with the popular operating system comes the much-anticipated new release of Hyper-V. Now that it has been out there a bit and people are getting some exposure to the new server operating system and virtualization platform, we should make sure you know about a great new free resource to help you in the transition. Microsoft MVP Brien Posey has been working on his newest publication, “Hands-on Guide: Understanding Hyper-V in Windows Server 2012”. Additional chapters have contributions from Pete Zerger (also a Microsoft MVP) and Chris Henley from Veeam.
This is a great time for this resource and we’re happy to have it available for download on veeam.com. This is also a good time to see what everyone’s plans are for the new platform: both as an operating system and as part of your virtualized infrastructure. To do this, we are creating a quick poll here on the Veeam blog. Mark your votes below!
Regardless of where you are with Windows Server technologies, this is an important release! Windows Server 2012 promises to be an incredible platform to run applications, as well as a powerful virtualization environment for virtual machines.
This is also a big priority for Veeam. Veeam Backup & Replication 6.5 supports VMs running on Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V, as well as VMs running Windows Server 2012 (whether on Hyper-V or VMware vSphere). This is a big deal! In particular this also includes VMs running from SMB 3.0 shares on Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V. Stay tuned at veeam.com or
