Nick was on it and worked with Microsoft to get the issue fixed, it was great!
Server Virtualization is something to truly get excited about as an owner of your Villa Park (60181) based business. Talking about the Cloud? Well this is your way to build your own cloud. Start consolidating your multiple servers onto ONE server. This saves you electricity, cooling costs, and most importantly, maintenance costs. We can use Microsoft’s Hyper-V platform or VMware to start consolidating your old servers into one powerful new server. Total cost of ownership plummets, maintenance costs go down, reliability and scalability go up, and now you know you’re on top of your IT game
Hardware Virtualization uses software to create a Virtual Machine (VM) that emulates a physical computer. This creates a separate OS environment that is logically isolated from the host server. By providing multiple VMs at once, this approach allows several operating systems to run simultaneously on a single physical machine. Rather than paying for many under-utilized server machines, each dedicated to a specific workload, server virtualization allows those workloads to be consolidated onto a smaller number of more fully-used machines.
The two most popular Server Virtualization products are VMware and Microsoft’s Hyper-V. VMware is the industry leader, but Microsoft’s Hyper-V is gaining market share quickly. As of January of 2013 VMware still controlled approximately 60% of the Server Virtualization market, they had a near monopoly as recently as 2006. Microsoft’s’ Hyper-V now controls about 25% of the market.
