Virtual Machine Servicing Tool 3.0 Hits Beta.

Microsoft has made available for download the Beta Build of version 3.0 of its Virtual Machine Servicing Tool, an offering designed to streamline administration of virtualized assets for enterprise customers. The latest development milestone of Virtual Machine Servicing Tool 3.0 is now live on Microsoft Connect, where early adopters can access the Beta bits. According to Jeff Wettlaufer, Sr. technical product manager System Center, Microsoft continues to be focused on delivering not just tested guidance but also the automated tools necessary for IT professionals to safely service offline virtual machines in SCVMM (System Center Virtual Machine Manager) libraries.

VMST 3.0 builds on this functionality, adding powerful new features designed to streamline the process of keeping your offline virtual machines, templates and VHDs up-to-date with the latest operating system and application updates, without introducing vulnerabilities into your IT infrastructure. VMST 3.0 helps you effectively manage the workflow of updating your offline virtual machines according to their individual needs. Using VMST 3.0, customers can also keep users productive during updates and maintenance of physical hosts: VMST 3.0 now automates the servicing of Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V host clusters, leveraging live migration, Wettlaufer explained.

Firefox for Android hits beta
For all you Android lovers out there, FF for Android has finally hit the beta stage. I have to say, it's much improved over the alpha that Mozilla put out a while back. It's definitely speedier, but still has quite a large footprint (40 MB internal memory is the requirement, I believe). Some...
