In today's difficult economic environment, all companies seek ways to cut business costs. One of the possibilities for serious economizing in the field of information technologies can be reduction of costs on infrastructure, that is, on management of desktop computers and servers. This goal can be attained through employment of virtualization technologies, which enable to ensure the dynamic redistribution of computation load and to increase the consolidation of resources. That is precisely what Gazprom Neft Company did by implementing the Microsoft Hyper-V technology. Owing to that solution, not only did it succeed to increase reliability, flexibility and scalability of its IT infrastructure, but also to significantly reduce expenditures, while substantially increasing work efficiency.
