SCVMM 2008 Release Date
In case you missed it, we recently announced a more precise date for the final release of SCVMM 2008 - September 2008. Previously we had said that it would be the second half of 2008 but Hyper-V shipped early and we're coming down the home stretch as well. At this stage of the game, shipping software is as much art as it is science so it's hard to pin down an exact date. Our single focus for the past four months has been quality and that will continue to be our focus until we ship. We have been testing SCVMM in as many configurations and use cases as is humanly possible in addition to cranking up the performance and scale limits. We're working with a small group of aggressive early adopters in parallel with our efforts here in Redmond to ensure we're battle tested before the general release.
