Virtualization is going to be (if it isn't already) a huge topic for anyone involved in the IT industry. I know that IT Pros are very excited about Microsoft's offering with Windows Server 2008 but I wasn't sure how many developers have at least a high level appreciation of what virtualization is and how Hyper-V fits into the big picture.
To find out, I would encourage you to spend some time browsing the numerous links and content on these sites:
1. Microsoft Virtualization
2. Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V
3. Also recently, Bob Muglia sent this executive email on virtualization
, should you need something to forward to your manager.
4. Finally, see this dedicated blog
If you have access to the TechEd Europe IT Forum 2007
post-conference recordings, there are 4 sessions that I recommend: MGT323, SVR307, SVR320 and SVR322. I watched those collective 300 minutes and (combined with what floated my boat from the other links above) distilled the most interesting bits into a 15'-20' section of my Windows Server 2008 developer session. It is from those 4 sessions that I stole the slides I used ;-). You can find them in this powerpoint deck (36-58 inclusive)
