For those unaware of the strains in a server environment, live migration of virtual machines across physical servers is crucial to providing flexibility for managing data centers. AMD is also taking this opportunity to highlight its continued, cooperative development efforts with Microsoft as evidenced in Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V, which just also happens to be available today in beta form, that adds support for AMD-V technology with Rapid Virtualization Indexing. Images and video of the demonstration are available in this story." Link to Original Source
Never appeal to a man's "better nature." He may not have one.
Invoking his self-interest gives you more leverage.
