Making Virtual Infrastructures Highly Available
Organizations are going "green" through server virtualization in order to reduce their server footprint. This saves space and money while at the same time allowing for growth and expansion. This form of consolidation focuses on one server running many production workloads. As a result it is important to be prepared to off load those production workloads to a secondary server should anything ever happen.
In this chapter of the "Introduction to Virtualization E-book" we will look at how to protect production workloads running in a virtual environment as well as off load this work to a stand-by host if needed. By using high-availability configurations, you can address a number of potential issues within your environment so that your company doesn't miss a beat should anything happen.
