    Is this product able to run on real servers with XEON 64 bit processors? I haven't seen any technical articals on running sql 2005 on a virtual cluster in order to test prior to purchasing and loading the hardware in production while using Virtual Server 2005 on a dual XEON 64 bith machine. Anyone know of a resource for this?

    TIA,

    Wayne

    May try searching inhttp://www.microsoft.com/windowsserversystem/virtualserver/default.mspx for more information on support of SQL cluster in thsi case.
