White paper: Everything you need to know about implementing Hyper-V
Aidan Finn provides a step-by-step guide to server virtualisation, including the next steps to take if you decide it’s right for your business.
This white paper introduces the concept of server virtualisation using Microsoft's Hyper-V.
It's written by Aidan Finn, Microsoft MVP. He has worked as a consultant and administrator for the likes of Amdahl DMR, Fujitsu, Barclays and Hypo Real Estate Bank International, where he dealt with large and complex IT infrastructures.
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.
