News broke over the last 24 hours that the PLA (People’s Liberation Army - military of People’s Republic of China) has decided to adopt Hyper-V to virtualise their NeoKylin Linux distro, with the assistance of Microsoft. I have a few thoughts on this:
- I seriously don’t think that the PLA would adopt a virtualisation solution that wasn’t stable, scalable, or enterprise ready. How do you like them apples, vFanboys?
- Can you imagine the size of the deployment that this will be? Dear Mr. Hu Jintao, can I play with this Hyper-V deployment? I promise I won’t break it. Honest!
- I wonder if Sybex has printed my book Mastering Hyper-V Deployment in Mandarin?
