High Availability With Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V Powered by Intel Xeon Processors
Designing highly available solutions is now a standard in many organizations, as they must ensure that their information systems remain operational in any event. Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V provides an extensive set of features ideal for providing high availability to virtual servers. In conjunction with failover clustering, and tools such as Virtual Machine Manager, those features provide a compelling list of benefits to help achieve the high availability goals of companies moving forward. When designing a high availability solution with Hyper-V, it is important that the hardware platform includes reliability features to mitigate the risk of a single point of failure. Consider using Intel Xeon processor to provide the reliability and performance needed to power highly available solutions.
