Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 Technical Overview

In this session we will take a look at the Microsoft Virtual Server product. Virtual machine technology allows multiple operating systems to run concurrently on a single machine, which can help boost administrator productivity and save money by enabling customers to migrate legacy applications and also help them consolidate applications on fewer servers. For those new to this environment we will discuss what a Virtual environment is and how the Server product compares to the desktop product, Microsoft Virtual PC, and when to use each solution. We will cover the installation and setup of the product from the actual server to the actual drives.
