Virtualization technology plays an increasingly critical role at all levels of IT, from the desktop to the datacenter. As more organizations are using virtualization to manage mission-critical workloads, they are taking advantage of the cost-saving benefits of server consolidation. Many organizations plan to extend virtualization to support core functions, such as business continuity, disaster recovery, testing and development, and remote office management. To help customers adopt virtualization easily, Microsoft has developed a next-generation server virtualization solution as a feature of Microsoft® Windows Server®. Hyper-V™ is a virtualization platform that provides reliable and scalable platform capabilities along with a single set of integrated management tools to manage both physical and virtual resources. In addition, Red Five provides comprehensive support that enables you to deploy applications on Microsoft’s virtualization platform with confidence and peace of mind.
