Office Communications Server and Windows Hyper-V !-->
Is your organization looking to reduce your total cost of ownership (TCO) for your servers? Saving money is always a good thing. And, if you can ensure that you maintain or even improve your Quality of Service (QoS), even better.
The Windows Server® 2008 operating system includes Hyper-V™, which is a powerful virtualization technology that your corporate IT department can use to consolidate servers that are currently underused. By using Hyper-V with these underused servers, you can reduce TCO, and maintain or improve Quality of Service (QoS). The white paper "Running Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2 in a Virtualized Topology," available at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=165757, examines a series of test scenarios that represent best practice recommendations for running Office Communications Server 2007 R2 and SQL Server™ 2008 in Windows Hyper-V environment or other hypervisor technologies.
