Hyper-V Deployment and Best Practices
Server virtualization, also known as hardware virtualization, is a hot topic in the IT world because of the potential for serious economic benefits. Server virtualization enables multiple operating systems to run on a single physical machine as virtual machines (VMs). With server virtualization, you can consolidate workloads across multiple underutilized server machines onto a smaller number of machines. Fewer physical machines can lead to reduced costs through lower hardware, energy, and management overhead, plus the creation of a more dynamic IT infrastructure. With Windows Server 2008, everything needed to support server virtualization is available as an integral feature of the operating system-Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V. In this webcast a Senior Product Manager from the Windows Virtualization team discusses the Hyper-V virtualization capabilities built into Windows Server 2008. It offers an overview of system requirements, and best practices for successful deployment.
