Seamless physical, virtual and application management
How do I streamline VM Provisioning?
Can I do Live migrations between servers with different processors?
How do i determine suitable host for my VM?
How can I optimize resources and performance ?
Can I host more than 1 VM per LUN?
Can I monitor and manage services inside my VMs?
Can I migrate VM storage from 1 SAN to another?

Support for Quick Storage Migration
For users requiring a true clustered file system, VMM 2008 R2 supports third party file systems by detecting CFS disks and allows for deploying multiple VMs per LUN.
Quickly and efficiently respond to changing storage requirements of virtual machines.
Easily migrate virtual machines between clustered hosts without affecting the connected users.
Perform multiple Live Migrations without having to keep track of other Live Migrations within the cluster.
Ability to automatically migrate VMs in and out of clustered hosts using SAN transfers.
Simplify the process of initiating maintenance or upgrades to virtual hosts, VMM 2008 R2 provides maintenance mode – a one-step process whereby active virtual machines are safely evacuated to other hosts within the cluster before maintenance begins.
Support for two new networking services – Virtual Machine Queue (VMQ) and TCP Chimney – built into Windows Server 2008 R2. Key benefits to both of these technologies are more efficient processing of network traffic (through the creation of virtual network queues in the former and offloading of TCP/IP workloads to a physical NIC, in the latter) and thus freeing up CPU cycles on the host machine.
With expanded support now covering the majority of available iSCSI SANs, VMM 2008 R2 enables administrators to choose from a much wider range of options when selecting a new SAN solution. For those with SAN infrastructure in place, VMM 2008 R2 features greater SAN compatibility enabling administrators to leverage their storage investments.
VMM 2008 R2 now allows for the migration of a VM’s storage both within the same host and across hosts with minimum downtime. VMM 2008 R2 also supports VMware storage vMotion so the storage for a VMware VM can be transferred on the same hosts no downtime.
VMM has detected that host and NIC has VMQ capabilities

"Virtualization without good management is more dangerous
than not using virtualization in the first place" - Thomas Bittman, Gartner
