In the past few years, virtualisation has transformed the data centre. It is now a primary supporting platform for many enterprises. A wide variety of virtualisation technologies are available, but only a small number of these technologies have made it to mainstream deployment.
Server virtualisation is the best example of the technology in the mainstream. It started out with the offer of hardware cost reduction and has progressively shifted to the delivery of high availability and reliability. A virtual server infrastructure now provides more than a cost benefit; it also can do the job better than most physical equivalents.
This whitepaper will focus on the best practices for the protection of virtual servers running in the data centre.
