Microsoft has been talking server application virtualization since 2008, but only recently have they put a name and details to the product. According to this ZDNet report, At TechEd this week, a Microsoft representative offered a demo of the next version of the System Center Virtual Machine Manager.

At TechEd the company offered details on System Center Virtual Machine Manager for server application virtualization.

"Muglia told TechEd attendees that cloud computing — whether it’s public (shared) or private (dedicated) — is simply “just-in-time provisioning and scaling of services on shared hardware.” Microsoft’s goal is to have one common identity model, one application model and one management model that spans the public and private space.

"Muglia wanted to impart to the 11,000 or so TechEd attendees, which include both developers and IT pros, that it’s time to get serious about the cloud. It’s not some far-off promise; it’s already something with which to be reckoned.

"The demo of the next version of the System Center Virtual Machine Manager highlighted the benefits of state separation, allowing users to deploy applications separately from the operating system, Muglia said."
