As part of the Microsoft BizTalk Server 2009 launch wave, the BizTalk Rangers and Technology Adoption Program (TAP)
teams are conducting a performance lab to compare Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006 R2, BizTalk Server 2009 (physical), and BizTalk Server 2009 on a Hyper-V platform. In this webcast, you hear from the product group about the performance characteristics of solutions
deployed on different platforms. We outline the tests that we have performed and the results that we obtained, and we share common best practices for deployment. If you would like to understand the performance differences of BizTalk Server 2009 on Microsoft
SQL Server 2008, Windows Server 2008, and Hyper-V platforms before the official guides are published, then this webcast is for you.
