Microsoft has released Windows 2008 R2 SP1

Microsoft has announced the release of the first Service Pack for Windows Server 2008 R2 and for Windows 7. This same package will also apply for Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 R2, which is the free version of Hyper-V. The relase date will be February, 16th 2011 for MSDN and Technet subscribers and for those who have a Volume License (VL). Everybody else will have to wait for February, 22nd 2011, when the SP1 will be released through the standard Windows Update channel as an important update.

You can read more about these releases here. The Windows 7 version has just a few fixes, but the 2008 R2 Server edition will have RemoteFX and a dynamic memory adjuster for Hyper-V.

If you wanted to install it on a Windows Server running Exchange 200 7 SP3 or Exchange 2010, maybe you should read this first: Windows 2008 R2 SP1 general availability and what it means for Exchange

If you are willing to learn more about Windows 2008 R2 SP1 Dynamic Memory, I deeply suggest you to watch the three following videos by John Savill:

Happy testing !
