Microsoft software licensing still poses problems for server virtualization users, despite some virtualization-friendly changes made in the past year.
The major Microsoft virtualization licensing problem is that the licenses tie software to physical servers, which restricts virtual machine (VM) live migration. In this edition of This Week in Virtualization, Hyper-V expert Rob McShinsky talks about the effects of Microsoft software licensing on virtualization and offers virtualization licensing tips.
This week's podcast also features news about VMware and Microsoft pulling away from other vendors in the server virtualization market.
