As I mentioned in the post, Microsoft Hyper-V and Spin Marketing, a number of companies contacted me in the hopes of presenting their view of Microsoft's Hyper-V announcement. This is Sun's response.

A Sun representative sent some comments about the Hyper-V launch to me as well. Sun's comments echo those made by Virtual Iron.

Here's a lovely quote from Sun's message:

Sun's perspective is that live migration is like table wine, it's good, but not enough. Sun believes that other forms are also necessary when looking at hypervisors. For example, warm migration, which is freezing the server, moving it, and then bringing it back up. Cold migration, which involves taking your network down to perform scheduled maintenance, is a necessary feature for disaster recovery.

I suspect that the point being made was something like that old Wendy's ad that said "Where's the beef." What do you think?
