Server virtualization, how you suggest?
Posted on 2008-10-02
we have a Windows 2000 network, moving to Windows 2003 (Server) and Windows XP (clients). We have two offices connected trought a 4 Mbps VPN. Actually the principle services we host are Active Directory, Domino 6.55, IIS, SQL Server 2005.
We would like to go for virtualization, but are not sure about witch vendor to choose.
VmWare is quiete expensive, but with a big experience (infrastructure enterprise vertion) on his background. The v-motion tecnologies seems to be able to backup the virtual image on fly, and in case of 2 server balance the tollerance and faults.
Windows launched Hyper-V that seems to be a really easy to manage product, and is completely free.
Witch one you would suggest for stability, support, stability and information on the network?
Thanks a lot!
