In addition I’ve moved role – I’m now a Server Virtualization person (rather than a Windows Server person doing some virtualization).  This means I’ll be spending my time primarily focused on System Center Virtual Machine Manager and Windows Server Enterprise and Datacenter editions, and the virtulization engines: Virtual Server 2005 R2 SP1 and Windows Server virtualization (WSv).

This should be an exciting year!

Windows Server Virtualization Calculator(s)

May 29, 2007

I stumbled on this today, it seems there is a second calculator now available (the first was made available in January).   

The licensing page has been updated to reflect the two calculators:

  • Calculator 1 – is designed to estimate the licenses and cost of Windows Server by editions and numerous Microsoft server products on a single, physical server.
  • Calculator 2 – is designed to estimate the licenses and cost of only Windows Server by edition for one or multiple physical servers.

There are also numerous links to other licensing briefs pertinent to Virtualization at the bottom of the page.
