The simplicity and intuitiveness of the platform. It was a very simple adaptation, if you have any experience in virtualization.

It makes it easier to deploy service. All service tends to migrate onto the server house without having problems now. It is hardware independent.

There is a hard limitation of 20 gigs per file with Dropbox, so you've got to overcome that by chunking the zip files into something smaller and manageable.

It might make it easier to move VMs across Hotmail hosts. This application process make it a little bit easier.

It would be nice if it was turned into its own product because that's the problem with it. It doesn't have a single place where you can manage things. You have to go into all different screens to be able to configure it. And then you have no idea what the performance is. It's really just a feature added to Windows, and Microsoft does not really have anything that pulls it all together well. Compared to VMware, it does not have everything collaborate on one screen.

They can hot add NICs to the VMs. However, there is still not the ability to hot add virtual processors to running VMs.
