Microsoft's (NASDAQ: MSFT) Jeff Woolsey, principal program manager lead for Windows Server virtualization, recently showed a sneak peek of "Windows Server 8 at the 2011 Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in Los Angeles. A recent Windows Server 8 demo showed the new server running the next version of Hyper-V.

As reported on Redmond Mag, the demo of Hyper-V replica showed the replication of a "mission-critical" SQL database from a Microsoft private cloud to a disaster recovery site. Woolsey said that this Hyper-V replica feature will work with any server vendor, network vendor or storage vendor.

"'With Windows Server 8, we're delivering massive scale,' Woolsey concluded. 'We're delivering enhanced, mission-critical reliability solutions in the box, with unlimited replication with Hyper-V replica. And I'm not kidding when I say we've barely scratched the surface.'

"Woolsey emphasized that the demo just showed one feature of Windows Server 8, and that Microsoft had added 'hundreds of features to the core,' which will be disclosed at the Microsoft Build conference in September."
