Aidan has worked in the server hosting and outsourcing industry in Ireland where he focused on server management, including VMware VI3, Hyper-V and Microsoft System Center. Currently, Aidan is working as an IT infrastructure consultant lead.

This white paper describes how the features of Hyper-V server virtualisation will:

    Reduce the need for an ever-expanding physical server infrastructure, and the costs that come with it
    Preserve the performance of business-critical services
    Improve the reliability of backup and recovery
    Simplify disaster recovery planning and invocation

Most importantly of all, the white paper will look at how Hyper-V can assist the IT department with looking after that piece of IT the business really cares about: the applications or services that enable core business operations and provide decision-making information.
