Introduction

Introduction

Windows Server 2008 shipped with several server roles that provide application services such as Active Directory, web services, thin client Terminal Services, video streaming media services, server virtualization services, and many others. This book focuses on the services specific to server virtualization called Hyper-V.

Hyper-V enables an organization to consolidate several physical server systems into a single host server while still providing isolation between virtual guest session application operations. With an interest to decrease costs in managing their information technology (IT) infrastructure, organizations are virtualizing servers. Bringing multiple physical servers into a single host server decreases the cost of purchasing and maintaining multiple physical server systems, decreases the cost of electricity and air-cooling systems to maintain the physical servers, and enables an organization to go “green” (by decreasing the use of natural resources in the operation of physical server systems).
