The University of Miami (UM) is one of the leading research universities in the United States. With a server infrastructure that exceeded its facility's capacity and required the use of valuable resources to administer, the 10 IT staff in UM's enterprise Windows server group needed to consolidate servers and streamline management. Now it is running Windows Server 2008 with Hyper-V, migrating VMware Server and Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 to the Hyper-V technology, and using Microsoft System Center products to manage, monitor, and back up its environment.
