Get enterprise-class virtualization for your datacenter and hybrid cloud
Bolster IT efficiency and flexibility with the faster application deployment and maintenance that Microsoft virtualization solutions deliver. Reduce costs by consolidating more workloads on fewer servers and increase agility using the same virtualization platform on-premises and in the cloud.
Virtualization has enabled a new generation of datacenters with more efficiency and availability for your most demanding workloads. Microsoft virtualization solutions go beyond basic virtualization capabilities, such as consolidating server hardware, to create comprehensive platforms for private and hybrid cloud. This means your organization can achieve considerable cost savings and operational efficiencies.
Whether you want to virtualize workloads, build a private cloud, scale your services through a public cloud, or combine all three, Microsoft’s virtualization and management solutions, built on Windows Server and System Center, can help you better manage resources and offer IT as a service. And when you migrate from VMware to Microsoft, you can adapt cloud computing to your business needs.
Migrating to Hyper-V
Did you know that Hyper-V has had four times the growth of VMware’s ESX over the past three years? As such, virtual machine migration is an increasing priority for many customers as more and more are exploring and evaluating the Microsoft platform against their existing VMware installed base. Whether it’s virtual to virtual (from one hypervisor to another) or physical to virtual, migration provides a path for consolidation of workloads and services, and the foundation for cloud.
Available to assist is the Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter (MVMC) 3.0, a supported, freely available solution for converting VMware-based virtual machines and virtual disks from VMware hosts to Hyper-V hosts and Windows Azure. MVMC 3.0 also enables physical server conversion to Hyper-V virtual machines to assist your virtualization acceleration.

SharePoint Online delivers the powerful features of SharePoint without the associated overhead of managing the infrastructure on your own. Flexible management options ensure that you still retain the control you need to meet the compliance requirements of your organization. You can purchase SharePoint in the cloud as a standalone offering or as part of an Office 365 suite, where you can also get access to Exchange, Lync, the Office clients, and web apps.
