Yes, yes – Live Migration is now included with the latest version of Hyper-V. And yes, that had to happen. But there is a lot more to Hyper-V with R2 than that.

Other features like Cluster Shared Volumes (CSVs), jumbo frame support and Dynamic Virtual Machine Storage have also helped to move Microsoft up the server virtualization ladder (and the price comparison with market competitors doesn't hurt either).
