2008 R2 SP1… Dynamic memory first impressions…

I, like many other nerds, have applied SP1 to many of my Win7 and Win 2008 R2 boxes since its proper release to the web (im not/wasnt ball-sy enough to use the leaked OEM versions)

First impressions of Hyper-V dynamic memory are quite good. I have, as expected, freed up a reasonable amount of memory on each of my hyper-V servers, enough so i could run another 5 or 6 virtuals per host – which is quite impressive.

I quite like the feedback you now get in the Hyper-V mmc – with assigned memory, memory demand and memory status…. although a minor thing – it will definately help improve densities and therefore reduce costs in the datacentre.
