International Conferences Uses Virtual Technology for Remote Systems Management
To avoid the high cost of implementing servers at every location, the team needed to find an effective way to take advantage of the physical servers that were already in place in Sydney. The team also needed a solution that had high availability and automatic failover, and that would be extremely reliable, because if the system went down, it could bring the entire meeting to a halt. To provide the necessary range of services and support, the IT team for APEC turned to Microsoft. After reviewing available options, Kollar's team selected Microsoft Virtual Server 2005, along with technical help from the Dedicated Support Engineer (DSE) program from Microsoft Services.
