  • 5Nine Hyper-V Manager -  product is a branded version of vtCommander (http://vtcommander.com) that was developed and completely owned by VT Technology Inc.

    That being said VT Technology decided to discontinue licensing of the branded version of its software, including a free version that was distributed by 5nine for a limited time. Good news is that VT Technology is going to release a free preview for Windows 8 soon. Going forward vtCommander and a new free preview will be available exclusively from VT Technology.
