“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 firms nimbleness and the cost reduction benefits to what is possible.”

While there are many compelling reasons to move to Microsoft® Windows Server® 2008 Hyper-V technology, the top 10 reasons include:

Reduce Costs
Reduce Infrastructure Costs Through Consolidation-Consolidating multiple workloads onto a single hardware platform enables a business to reduce physical server sprawl and to support a business with less hardware, resulting in lower equipment costs, lesser electrical consumption for server power and cooling, and reduced physical space requirements. Furthermore, flexible licensing policies for virtualization allow organizations to deploy a consolidation solution that best meets business needs. Consolidating servers through Hyper-V also enables those servers to take advantage of robust networking support, including VLAN, Network Address Translation (NAT), and Network Access Protection (NAP) policies (quarantine).

Better Handle Demanding Workloads
Virtualize the Most Demanding Workloads -Hyper-V supports 64-bit guest operating systems, offering you the flexibility to consolidate 32-bit and 64-bit workloads in the same environment. Organizations can virtualize infrastructure workloads on Server Core to run these workloads in their most reliable configurations. In addition, support for up to 4 virtual processors and up to 64 Gb of RAM per virtual machine (VM), along with the new I/O architecture, help optimize scalability and efficiency. With the ability to assign multiple, shared processors to each virtual machine along with fine grained resource controls, even the most demanding and resource-intensive server applications can be virtualized.

High Availability
Virtualize for High Availability-Leveraging the clustering capabilities of Windows Server 2008 Enterprise and Datacenter editions, Hyper-V provides support for highly available virtual machines. Clustering and Network Load Balancing features support increased availability for planned and unplanned downtime, helping to improve business continuity. The minimal Server Core installation option reduces the need for patching and rebooting, and also decreases memory resource consumption, freeing up memory to be used by virtual machines.
