Migrate to the cloud both seamlessly and efficiently with hypervisor technology that runs Azure, the world’s largest datacentre. Hyper-V is Microsoft’s Server Virtualisation platform that has been included free of charge since Microsoft Windows Server 2008. It introduces hypervisor technology on which multiple virtual machines (servers) can run, with the hypervisor layer controlling and sharing the hardware and allocating resources to each Virtual Machine.
Cost Savings: achieve more with less financial commitment. Through savings on server hardware, storage, licensing and energy requirements it costs less to build and maintain a virtualised server environment with Microsoft Hyper-V.
Consolidation: It is common practice to dedicate each server to a single application, or split applications across multiple servers if they do not work together such as Microsoft SQL and Microsoft Exchange. If several applications only use a small amount of processing power, the network administrator can consolidate several machines into one server running multiple virtual environments.
Redundancy & Fault Tolerance: Enable Redundancy, Fault Tolerance and/or High Availability through Server virtualization and Microsoft Hyper-V. It provides a mechanism for companies to implement redundancy without the high cost of purchasing additional hardware. Keep your workforce productive, maximise operational time and minimise both service interruption and downtime.
