Another significant milestone for Microsoft virtualization’s way – release of the first Service Pack for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.

For Hyper-V, this package is primarily the emergence of the long-awaited features dynamic memory and RemoteFX capabilities. We have reviewed both deep enough in the past articles, we’ll talk about another. In addition to encoded two innovations in Service Pack 1 includes all updates previously released for Hyper-V R2. Support for new processors Nehalem and Westmere, correction of VSS, and so on. Combo box will be available tomorrow on the Microsoft website.

Unexpected but enjoyable ad was an increase of rating relations possible aggregate number of virtual processors to the number of logical processors on the system. As we remember, support was previously set to 8: 1. With the release of the first service pack that contains this value increased to 12: 1 for VDI if used on servers virtualized guest systems exclusively with Windows 7 Service Pack 1. Details can be seen in the following Microsoft TechNet articles. What this gives? Now the dual server with new dual Xeon Westmere can run up to 144 virtual machines! Not in vain at TechEd commented that density in VDI objectives increased by 40% with SP1. Draw attention-change only affects client SKUS. This modification support relations sum of virtual processors to the number of logical processors does not affect the maximum possible value for the number of virtual processors per virtual machine, no change here.

Pack will be publicly available in the first quarter. For installing you should uninstall prerelease versions of this package, if installed on your PC or server. The first time for download will be available "zero wave", which includes support for English, but not containing the Russian language. If you can’t wait to install it on a system that will deliver the English interface, make it the default, remove Russian, to pack, and then return the Russian language.

Updated: Microsoft’s official position is that Microsoft has not released SP1 to OEMs at this time, comment.though we are on track for a Q1 release, as we previously announced. The comments made in this blog entry included some inaccuracies.
