Up to 32 Virtual CPUs with VirtualBox 3

Earlier this month when I checked in with VirtualBox, I was intentionally priming for the upcoming version 3 release. Currently in beta, version 3 offers what I believe is the highest virtual CPU count for a VM at 32 symmetric multiprocessors (SMP) for mainstream hypervisors using common Intel and AMD processors.

Version 3 is due out soon, probably this month and I am very excited to give it a try. I have been a long time VirtualBox user for select virtualization platforms and will keep you updated on the new version when it is released. The beta user guide has a full list of the new features available at the VirtualBox Web site.
