eMazzanti Technologies offers new article on how Microsoft Windows Server 2008R2 saves money for small businesses owners that are interested in moving to the cloud or virtualizing servers

eMazzanti Technologies, IT and computer network expert in the Hoboken, NJ and New York City areas announces the availability of a new, free article entitled: Top 10 Ways Windows Server 2008 R2 Saves Money. A full version of the article is available at:

“Fundamentally, this Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper- V solution can dramatically reduce the total cost of ownership of a small businesses’ server room,” noted Jennifer Mazzanti, president, eMazzanti Technologies, serving Hoboken, NJ and New York City areas. If a business has not looked at a virtualization solution, that business is missing an opportunity to increase the firm’s nimbleness and the cost reduction benefits to what is possible.”

Windows Server® 2008 R2 is the newest Windows Server operating system from Microsoft. Designed to help organizations reduce operating costs and increase efficiencies, Windows Server 2008 R2 provides enhanced management control over resources across the enterprise. It is designed to provide better energy efficiency and performance by helping to reduce power consumption and lower overhead costs. Windows Server 2008 R2 also delivers improved branch office capabilities, an exciting new remote access work experience, streamlined server management, and hugely expands Microsoft virtualization vision.

Below are three of the top 10 ways the new Windows Server can help the bottom line:

#1. Optimize Resources
Advances in server hardware mean most organizations significantly under-utilize their physical servers. CPU cycles, storage capacity and even network bandwidth go to waste, and worse that waste is repeated as workloads are distributed across an increasing physical server sprawl. Consolidating these workloads onto fewer machines has the potential to save on power and cooling while increasing management efficiency and IT agility.

Hyper-V™ in Windows Server 2008 R2 enhances the powerful virtualization technology Microsoft introduced in Windows Server 2008. The new platform takes better advantage of the host’s physical hardware, including support for 64 logical processors and the latest CPU architecture enhancements. It also contains improved networking features for better performance and can take advantage of the same power saving features as Windows Server 2008 R2 instances running on physical machines. Customer deployments have seen customers triple the number of available servers in their datacenters with no increase in floor space, power or cooling requirements.

#2. Reduce Power Consumption
Windows Server 2008 R2, like its predecessor Windows Server 2008, has been designed with energy efficiency in mind. Recent tests found that Windows Server 2008 R2 helped improve power efficiency by up to 18 percent over Windows Server 2003, out of the box.

Windows Server 2008 introduced a 'balanced' power policy, which monitors the utilization level of the processors on the server and dynamically adjusts the processor performance states to limit power to the needs of the workload. Windows Server 2008 R2 enhances this power saving feature by adding more granular abilities to help manage and monitor server and server CPU power consumption, as well as extending this ability to the desktop via new power-oriented Group Policy settings.

Active Directory® Domain Services Group Policy in Windows Server 2008 already gave administrators a certain amount of control over power management on client PCs. These capabilities are enhanced in Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows® 7 to provide even more precise control in more deployment scenarios for even greater potential savings.

#3. Reduce Desktop Costs
Much of the interest in virtualization solutions is in the server world. However, equally exciting advances are being made in presentation virtualization, where application processing happens on a server optimized for capacity and availability while graphics, keyboard, mouse, and other user I/O functions are handled at the user’s desktop. In effect, users ‘see’ and work with applications on their PCs, but those applications are actually running on a managed server in the datacenter, not on their local PC.
