Why Read This
Microsoft Windows Server is ubiquitous in corporate data centers, but its server virtualization solution, Hyper-V, a feature of the operating system (OS), has faced an uphill battle in capturing market share. Microsoft recently released Windows Server 2008 R2, which brought with it the updated version of Hyper-V. The new iteration addresses a criticism from many customers by finally introducing Live Migration, a feature that never made it into the original release. Lionbridge, a large services organization, rolled out the new platform in its virtual server environment. The result? Thanks to Windows Server 2008 R2, Lionbridge has overcome challenges related to storage management and allocation as well as achieved manageability benefits.
