  1. 1. Simple, Powerful and Affordable Virtualization Windows Server® 2008 R2 Hyper-V ™ on intel® Xeon® Processor-based Servers S o LU T i o n b R i E F You’re probably well aware that virtualization can help you simplify and consolidate your IT infrastructure, improve service levels and streamline new application deploy- Reduce Costs through ments, all while dramatically lowering your total costs. Yet up until now you may have been concerned about the cost and complexity of deploying and managing virtual- Server Consolidation ization. It’s time to take a fresh look. Windows Server® 2008 R2 Hyper-V™ running on the latest Intel® Xeon® processor- based servers provides all the benefits of enterprise-class server virtualization in an integrated solution that is optimized for midsize and smaller businesses. • Low Acquisition Costs and Easy Deployment — Hyper-V is included in the Windows Server 2008 R2 operating system at no extra cost. You can migrate your existing applications into virtual machines with just a few clicks and without disruptive changes to your software environment. • Simplified Management Using Familiar Tools — Manage your physical and virtual servers from a single control panel using the included tools or System Center Virtual Machine Manager. Your staff will be able to maintain your systems more efficiently and with less downtime, and deploy new applications in minutes. • Exceptional Performance and Scalability — The latest Intel Xeon processor- based servers deliver more than double the virtualization performance1 of previous- generation servers with reduced energy consumption and outstanding reliability. Many organizations are using them to achieve ten to one or higher consolidation ratios, with corresponding reductions in power, space and management costs. • The Highest Levels of Compatibility, Reliability and Support — Thousands of businesses are using Hyper-V running on Intel Xeon processor- based servers to run business-critical applications. You can deploy it with confidence in your production environment.
