New SCO OpenServer with Hyper-V Support

Good Afternoon all.
Last year in August Rover and I did a Webcast explaining the support of other operating systems like Linux and Unix running on Hyper-V. The webcast can be viewed on the link below:

To provide a interesting content we get in touch with people from UNIX SCO OpenServer and Daniel, director of the company, that attended us very well. At the time he had commented that there was no support of SCO on Hyper-V. This created a communication between them and the team of Microsoft (Scott Rosenbloom and John Kelbley). Even Scott and John sent us a virtual machine for the SCO presentation (which can be seen on webcast). From that contact, they began to develop a solution for that support.

Here comes the good news: Daniel just sent an e-mail of the support for Hyper-V 2008 and Hyper-V 2008 R2 for SCO OpenServer 5.0.7V. They finished the new system that supports Hyper-V. The version is SCO OpenServer 5.0.7V for Microsoft Hyper-V. Who uses SCO can now use all the benefits of virtualization in Hyper-V.

Some may ask: But what is the benefits gained from this support? It may seem little, but there is a gain in average 40% in network performance and 30% in performance in I/O of the disks.

For those who want to test the new SCO in Hyper-V, you can download the following site:
