  2. 2. Computing Technology TodayThe demand for deploying and maintaining the increasing number of applications triggers itgrowth in number of added server to IT organizations. Purchasing more and more servers,organizations face growing server sprawl that comes with challenges and disadvantages:  Rising direct and indirect costs. In addition to the expense of adding new hardware, organizations pay more for power, cooling, network infrastructure, storage infrastructure, server administration, data center upgrades or new data centers.  Poor Return on Invested Capital. The common practice of dedicating a single server to each x86 application and sizing it for peak loads has led to severe underutilization of server assets in most data centers.  Decreasing Flexibility. Managing servers becomes increasingly difficult as the number of servers grows and the number of applications continues to multiply.  Reduced Efficiency. As server sprawl increases, IT organizations are forced to spend more time on reactive tasks such as server provisioning,Microsoft Hyper-V: Consolidating and Containing ServersMicrosoft Hyper-V Server 2008 is a stand-alone hypervisor-based server virtualizationproduct that allows customers to virtualize workloads onto a single physical server.Microsoft Hyper-V meets the challenges of server sprawl and underutilization by reducinghardware and operating costs by as much as 50%. A virtual infrastructure also simplifiesserver deployment and automates resource management to optimize capacity andinfrastructure management. Microsoft virtualization technology makes it possible to packagea complete x86 server into a portable virtual machine package.Multiple virtual machines can then run simultaneously and independently on a single x86server with consolidation ratios often exceeding five virtual machines per host processor.Hyper-V provides a dynamic, reliable, and scalable virtualization platform combined with asingle set of integrated management tools to manage both physical and virtual resources,enabling you to create an agile and dynamic data center.

  3. 3. Server ConsolidationBusinesses are under pressure to ease management and reduce costs while retaining andenhancing competitive advantages, such as flexibility, reliability, scalability, and security. Thefundamental use of virtualization to help consolidate many servers on a single system whilemaintaining isolation helps address these demands. One of the main benefits of serverconsolidation is a lower total cost of ownership (TCO), not just from lowering hardwarerequirements but also from lower power, cooling, and management costs.Business Continuity and Disaster RecoveryBusiness continuity is the ability to minimize both scheduled and unscheduled downtime.That includes time lost to routine functions, such as maintenance and backup, as well asunanticipated outages. Hyper-V includes powerful business continuity features, such as livebackup and quick migration, enabling businesses to meet stringent uptime and responsemetrics.Disaster recovery is a key component of business continuity. Natural disasters, maliciousattacks, and even simple configuration problems like software conflicts can cripple servicesand applications until administrators resolve the problems and restore any backed up data.Leveraging the clustering capabilities of Windows Server 2008, Hyper-V now providessupport for disaster recovery (DR) within IT environments and across data centers, usinggeographically dispersed clustering capabilities. Rapid and reliable disaster and businessrecovery helps ensure minimal data loss and powerful remote management capabilities.Testing and DevelopmentTesting and development are frequently the first business functions to take advantage ofvirtualization technology. Using virtual machines, development staffs can create and test awide variety of scenarios in a safe, self-contained environment that accurately approximatesthe operation of physical servers and clients. Hyper-V maximizes utilization of test hardwarewhich can help reduce costs, improve life cycle management, and improve test coverage.With extensive guest OS support and checkpoint features, Hyper-V provides a great platformfor your test and development environments.Dynamic Data CentersHyper-V, together with your existing system management solutions, such as MicrosoftSystem Center, can help you realize the dynamic data center vision of providing self-managing dynamic systems and operational agility. With features like automated virtualmachine reconfiguration, flexible resource control, and quick migration, you can create a ppedv AG - HQ – Burghausen, Germany Tel: +49-8677-9889-110 Fax: +49-8677-9889-44 Info: sales:
  4. 4. dynamic IT environment that uses virtualization to not only respond to problems, but also toanticipate increased demands.Benefits of Server Consolidation and Containment• Dramatically lower costs. IT organizations can reduce hardware and operating costs by asmuch as 50% from implementing a Hyper-V server consolidation solution. Fewer servers alsomean lower costs for administration, power, cooling and data center infrastructure.• Boosted utilization and availability. If a physical server goes down, all the virtual machineson that hardware will migrate automatically and restart upon another physical server withinthe resource pool.• Improved manageability and reliability. Hyper-V reduces data center complexity byreducing the number of servers that IT organizations need to manage. Meanwhile, theHyper-V hypervisor sets the standard for reliability..• Simplified server provisioning. IT departments can reduce the time it takes to provisionnew servers by 50-70%.• Improved ability to handle future growth. Because the Hyper-V solution eliminates theneed to dedicate a physical server to each workload (or server application), organizationscan more effectively monitor growth in relation to utilized capacity..Fax Server Virtualization with Microsoft Hyper-V andVisendo Fax ServerVirtualized fax server solutions are quickly becoming the standard platform of choice.Corporations are making the paradigm shift from physical servers to adopting suchvirtualization technologies as Microsoft Hyper-V. By leveraging virtualization technologies,Visendo Faxing Solutions enables customers to lower capital and operational costs whileproviding an efficient and flexible faxing solution.Visendo Fax Server can be installed in a virtual server farm in order to provide highavailability and redundancy for your fax server solution. Visendo Fax Server can be rapidlydeployed by using a virtual server. Virtualization software can be configured automaticallyto relocate the FAXCOM server from one host to another.Fax server virtualization means, aside from using a virtual server application – like Hyper-V,enabling a FoIP environment by using a T.38 protocol. ppedv AG - HQ – Burghausen, Germany Tel: +49-8677-9889-110 Fax: +49-8677-9889-44 Info: sales:
  5. 5. Implementation of T.38 FoIP requires a VoIP implementation with routers and gatewaysconfigured for T.38 support. It is generally necessary for customers to configure their VoIPnetwork to support T.38 FoIP – it is not a default feature of the VoIP implementation.Customers will need access to technical resources able to configure their VoIP routers andgateways to assist Visendo with the implementation.Connecting Visendo Fax Server within a T.38 protocol, can easily be done with mediagateways from worldwide renowned telecom hardware providers (click on the links to readthe case studies) like Lancom (with Lancapi media gateway), Dialogic( various VoIPgateways), XCapi media gateway, Funkwerk (RemoteCapi media gateway).
