Today Microsoft released the Beta 2 of Carmine System Center Virtual Machine Manager. This Beta 2 release adds long-awaited functionality, like P2V and V2V migration, among others. From the release notes:

  • Completely new look-and-feel (same as System Center Operations Manager 2007, Service Desk and System Center Essentials)
  • Physical-to-Virtual (P2V) Conversions
  • Virtual-to-Virtual (V2V) Conversions
  • 64-bit VMM server support
  • EveryVMM component is now remotely installable
  • Full Windows PowerShell support
  • Better overall performance and scalability
  • Every feature from Beta 1 with more functionality and enhancements

I am currently downloading it, and will post back once I get a chance to play with it a little bit. One of the features that I’m dying to try out is the Powershell support – as powerful as vbscript is, I’m not particularly fond of it, and replacing its use on yet another MS product is another step in the right direction.

You can download Beta 2 from Remember you have to register first!
