Sun Expands Cross-Platform Virtualization Collaboration with Microsoft

Sun and Microsoft announced several developments this week in our work to make it easier for customers to use our software and servers together in virtual environments. We also showed off some demos at Microsoft’s 'Get Virtual Now' customer event in Bellevue, Wash. on Monday. 

Here are the highlights:

- The Sun xVM Server, a datacenter-grade hypervisor, will be validated to work with Microsoft Windows Server 2008 and prior versions.
- Sun and Microsoft are working together to offer customers the Solaris OS as a certified guest on Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V.
- Sun is providing Sun Ray thin client customers the ability to access Windows as a guest OS running on Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V.

These announcements build on Sun’s current work with Microsoft. As a Windows Server OEM, Sun sells and supports Windows Server products on certified x64 servers and blades and offers Windows Server utilities and value-added software. Sun also provides solutions to enable major TCO savings for customers, such as Sun's Infrastructure Solution for Microsoft Exchange Server.

In addition, Sun and Microsoft plan to integrate Sun xVM Ops Center with Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007. This will mean that Sun customers will be able to use a single management framework to manage their choice of operating systems from Solaris and Windows to Linux as well as monitor physical and virtual environments.
