Advantages of Server Virtualization


Hardware Virtualization uses software to create a Virtual Machine (VM) that emulates a physical computer. This creates a separate OS environment that is logically isolated from the host server. By providing multiple VMs at once, this approach allows several operating systems to run simultaneously on a single physical machine.

Rather than paying for many under-utilized server machines, each dedicated to a specific workload, server virtualization allows those workloads to be consolidated onto a smaller number of more fully-used machines.

Beginning with Windows Server 2008, server virtualization using Hyper-V technology has been an integral part of the operating system. Windows Server 2008 R2 introduces a new version of Hyper-V. Hyper-V makes it easier than ever to take advantage of the cost savings of virtualization through Windows Server 2008.
Benefits

· Increased availability for virtualized data centers through enhancements such as Live Migration

· Improved management of virtualized data centers through Powershell and System Center integration

· Increased Performance and Hardware Support for Hyper-V Virtual Machines via 64 logical processor support and processor compatibility mode

· Improved Virtual Networking Performance through new networking technologies

· A simplified method for physical and virtual computer deployments by using .vhd files

· Designed to provide a secure computing platform across both physical and virtual environments, enabled through next-generation architecture and security features

I have a window 7 PC.. but i can't intall UMAX ASTRA 5600 SCANNER DRIVERS... can u help me in this matter...


Umax Astra 5600 scanner will not work with Windows 7. You could try and use it in an XP Virtual machine
Steps to take to check, if you can use Virtualization http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/support/configure-bios.aspx
Give info on all Cpus From Intel and AMD http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X86_virtualization

Virtual PC & Xpmode. http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx
When you have XPmode and Virtual PC set up add the XP drivers for the scanner to the XP virtual Machine then connect the usb cable to W7

You should now be able to use the scanner in the XP machine.

Please contact the scanner manufacturer and see if they can provide the driver for Windows 7. Also, if the driver is for older operating systems, you can install the device driver in the Compatibility Mode.

thanks for rating Good luck

What OS is the virtual machine running on? Also there is a flash bug that will not let go of the audio device until you have closed the browser. I assume that is not your problem, but it is aomething good to know anyway.
