I heard of a free stand alone version of Hyper-V. Could you please explain the differences versus the Win 2k8 server ? This question is from the Microsoft Virtualization Chat on ITKnowledgeExchange.com

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The standalone Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 is a hypervisor that does not have Windows functions or a Windows license in it. Also, in the 2008 release, it has some more limited scaling than full version of Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V, such as supporting only 32GB of RAM. It is a great solution for smaller consolidation projects. For comparison of versions, see http://www.microsoft.com/servers/hyper-v-server/default.mspx
