While virtualizing Exchange Server can reduce operational costs, improve flexibility and consolidate resources, a proper plan is necessary in order to avoid potential complications. One question many shops contemplate is whether to choose Microsoft technology and virtualize with its Hyper-V platform, or to go with VMware’s more established vSphere. Another possibility is Citrix XenServer, which may appeal to smaller IT shops looking for a good price.

This handbook cuts through biases about the various platforms to help readers make a realistic evaluation of the pros and cons of each, whether they’re using Exchange 2013 or older versions. Readers will learn about specific steps to take and particular trouble spots to avoid on the way to a successful virtualization of one of their organization’s most essential applications.  Access >>>
