Editor's review Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V
Since Windows Server 2008, Microsoft has been offering Hyper-V, one of the hottest virtualization products on the market. Virtualization is a method by which multiple operating systems can run on a computer simultaneously. You could, for example, run many virtual servers on just a few machines. One key advantage of virtualization is the reduction of power consumption: You can do more computing with fewer hardware resources. Placing Hyper-V in a cluster is a feature in R2 and one Microsoft has made surprisingly easy. Even businesses with slight IT resources can accomplish the straightforward process in a couple of hours. Setting up two servers in a Hyper-V cluster requires a common storage location where the virtual machines can reside.
