Beta of MS Virtual Server 2004 includes improved security

Friday, 20 February 2004, 3:38 AM EST

Microsoft on Wednesday announced it has sent out to more than 15,000 testers the first beta of its Virtual Server 2004 , which features a number of new capabilities including improved security.

The upcoming server, built on the virtual machine technology Microsoft acquired from Connectix in January 2003, now contains new support for a range of SCSI drives and two-node clustering that will allow failover from one virtual machine to another.

"We have also improved and enhanced what we think is one of our biggest competitive differentiators, which is our COM API. We have a very rich, programmatic interface into Virtual Server. This will make it easier for administrators to script and automate a lot of the different capabilities," said Eric Berg, a product manager in Microsoft's Windows Server group.
