The first goal of any institution is to provide a service to their clients. The authors find that the security of the service becomes a close second. The goal of this project is to show that using modern, operating system virtualization techniques a variety of services can be made redundant in a cost-effective manner. This paper will define virtualization and redundancy for the purposes of the examples in this report. Example one will verify the importance of application-level service virtualization redundancy, whereas example two is a virtualized hardware-level redundancy system.
