Windows Server 2008 now offers the ability to consolidate multiple physical servers onto one physical server (host) using their server virtualization software Hyper-V 2008. This software allows businesses to consolidate multiple server roles on one piece of hardware, that would normally require separate hardware for each role. All physical and virtual servers will also take advantage of 64-bit computing and will run in parallel to each other.
Using Hyper-V to virtualize your server infrastructure allows your business to lower your IT budget, reduce server hardware and it makes managing your server environment faster and easier. Virtualization also allows you to maximize your hardware resources and optimize your virtual guests to run at optimum levels. Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 is available for download at Microsoft's corporate website or you can contact us to get Hyper-V installed and setup.
