Executive Summary

St Leonard's College, a leading private school in Australia, wanted to expand the services it offered to students and staff. To avoid the time and expense required to install more hardware, St Leonard's implemented Windows Server 2008 Enterprise with Hyper-V virtualization technology. The school chose the solution over virtualization products from Novell and VMware. By using Windows Server 2008, St Leonard's doubled its server software infrastructure without increasing hardware, and it was running many new services within six months. Although the server infrastructure has increased, management is easier with Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008, which St Leonard's IT staff members use to administer both virtual and physical servers.
