Almost a week ago, Service Pack 1 for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 was made available for MSDN/Technet subscribers. Today, Neowin reports that this latest Windows update will be made available for everyone else.
There are two primary features to look out for in this release that, while they may not be important to your average user, will be very important for those running virtual machines and Windows Server 2008 R2.
The first feature is RemoteFX which runs on Windows Server 2008 R2. This will allow high-quality video and 3D applications to be viewed in a remote desktop session. A big change in virtual and remote computing.
The second feature updates HyperV in Windows Server 2008 R2 with “Dynamic Memory.” This allows a dynamic memory allocation to a virtual machine based on its actual resource needs.
Keep an eye on your Windows Update to get the download and check the Windows Server Division blog for all the techie details.
