Microsoft collaboration aims to ease system management

Intel and Microsoft are to combine their network management technologies and work together to develop virtualisation technology. The move could ease system management for users.

Intel will connect its Active Management Technology (AMT) with Microsoft's Systems Management Server 2003.

The companies said the move would improve users' ability to protect computers from viruses and could lower maintenance costs.

Intel and Microsoft will also develop the Intel Virtualisation Technology to include support for mapping input/output devices to virtual machines on servers with a new specification - Intel Virtualisation for Directed I/O. The companies said the technology would help improve the reliability, flexibility and performance of I/O in a virtualised environment.
