Ever since the appearance of Hyper-V in the market, I have been stressing and promoting the blessings of the Microsoft Virtualization platform. I started writing articles and blogs about Hyper-V and joined Jaap Wesselius in the Dutch Hyper-V User Group which assembles quarterly in different parts of the country. We have been presenting Hyper-V and related technologies many times and have grown a small community in the Netherlands. My endeavors have even earned me an MVP, albeit not for Hyper-V but for Cluster. If you meet me on Twitter, you know that whatever I communicate on this social network deals with Hyper-V and System Center related topics. I use it to promote the further growth of Hyper-V.
We have seen Hyper-V version 1 still beta in Windows Server 2008, Hyper-V RTM as an update, the major update Hyper-V R2 and Hyper-V Server 2008 R2. Now we are looking forward to Hyper-V vNext, “the next version” of Hyper-V, Hyper-V in Windows 8, Hyper-V Next Generation, Hyper-V Cloud, Hyper-V 2012 or whatever the marketing people at Microsoft think will capture our minds. I personally believe not even the word Hyper-V is sacred and could be replaced if it serves a purpose.
