What is the support for Virtualization for MOSS (Sharepoint 2007)

As the KB909840, “Hardware virtualization support for SharePoint products and technologies.” It states: WSS v3 and MOSS are supported in production if they’re on Virtual Server 2005 R2 or later.

Also KB897615 states how 3rd party virtualization is not supported at all if you don’t have Premier level support, and Microsoft will use “commercially reasonable efforts” Onle if you DO have Premier level support.

But what about Hyper-V support? So do we support MOSS 2007/WSS 3.0 with Hyper-V?

So currently as of Aug 08th 2008 we are awating an Official statement to come out in few weeks, until then I *assume* Microsoft Support may provide Commercial Reasonable Support.

 

<UPDATE: Aug 19th 2008> From: http://blogs.msdn.com/sharepoint/archive/2008/08/18/update-on-virtualization-support-for-sharepoint-products-and-technologies.aspx

As of today, we formally support SharePoint Server 2007 SP1 and Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 SP1 running under Hyper-V through our normal support channels. In addition, we now offer support for SharePoint Server 2007 SP1 and Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 SP1 running in 3rd party virtualization software that is certified through our Server Virtualization Validation Program (SVVP). The SVVP is an opt-in program that non-Microsoft virtualization providers can choose to participate in. A list of participating vendors is here.

Hopefully these links should be handy to get you going and select Virtual environment :).
