As 2013 knocks on the door its seems to me more likely than not that Windows Server 2012 will start getting some customer traction, and the number of pilots and POCs will rise.
I’m fairly comfortable with all that Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 has to offer, and this is especially true of Hyper-V 2 as its not officially known.
WS2012 and Hyper-V 3 is a different fish kettle. I’ve been to marketing events and looked at highlight details but not got under the bonnet (that’s “hood” for you Americans )
To that end i’ve found some reading material that will start me off, and may be of interest. Its not an ordered selection, just some interesting starter for 10’s that i will flesh out over time.
First up – Introducing Windows Server 2012 – A brief overview of 2012 and its new features.
Next – A more detailed overview of the specific virtualisation features in WS2012
Next – Performance Tuning Information to consider for WS2012
And finally, a reference document discussing the application compatibility support provided by WS2012. Happy Reading !
