Microsoft today spilled the beans on its failure to build a competitive virtualization product on schedule, forcing the vendor to delay the beta release of its Viridian virtualization technology.
Users however are likely to use virtualization to move multiple smaller servers onto a single, larger box (aka: server consolidation). To really profit there, you need to be able to run Windows Server on really big servers with numerous processors. Traditionally that hasn't been Microsoft's strongest feature.
Early tests indicated that Viridian did poorly on multi processor, Mike Neil, general manager for Microsoft's virtualization strategy wrote on a company blog. Thus a delay was required.
