Server Consolidation & Virtualization Print

Server Consolidation in a nutshell is re-organizing your systems to have fewer servers running with higher utilization. This is accomplished in to main ways: migrating applications onto fewer servers and using virtualization. Where possible the most bang comes from migrating the applications so they share an existing server with other applications. But some applications don't play well with others, which is handled by virtualization. In a virtualization solution a single server will be running multiple independent and completely isolated operating systems effectively acting like multiple servers. There are various short and long term benefits to server consolidation such as lower management costs, reduced energy usage, increased availability, and disaster recovery to name a few.

We leverage Microsoft’s Hyper-V solution for virtualization. Hyper-V is a hypervisor based solution that supports a wide variety of common hardware. If your existing servers where manufactured in the last three to five years they are most likely compatible. It also has a full complement of management tools and can provide high availability via clustering and live migration.
