Here’s an update to my previous post about Microsoft licensing on virtual infrastructure.
Mark Wilson has posted an outline of the current Microsoft licensing stance when it comes to virtualization. Thankfully it just reaffirms what I’ve thought to be the case all along, but it’s great to get it confirmed like this.
Check out markwilson.it and particularly the post called A clear virtualization licensing and support statement from Microsoft
Basically it is just a better presentation of my own analysis of the licensing terms back in December 2006.
