I haven’t paid too much attention to this version of windows yet, but I have just been reading up on some of the Hyper-v improvements in Windows Server 2012. It does seem to have a lot of new features that could be useful for DBA running SQL Server in a virtual environment. Particularly the High Availability improvements and I’m very interested in the new Hyper-V replica feature.
I don’t have a link but if you search for Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V in your favourite search engine you will see the PDF whitepaper available to download from download.Microsoft.com
I’m going to download the release candidate and get VM setup and configured so I try SQL Server 2012 on this new Windows Server. I’m also going to get some Hyper-V VM’s configured on my VMware Workstation console so I can look at some of the new Hyper-V features that may be useful.
I’ll be sure to blog about my finding here. From what I have read, I know it is a moving target the release date is being touted as Q4 2012 or Q1 2013. I don’t know how accurate these dates are but if anyone knows to the contrary please let me know by leaving a comment.
