Many organizations find that patch management, resource utilization, maintenance costs, and server sprawl are among their biggest challenges. Server virtualization technologies, including the Windows Server Hyper-V and enhancements to Terminal Services, can help meet all of these challenges by helping you consolidate your resources and realize significant infrastructure and management cost savings.
Security and policy enforcement
Compliance, authentication, authorization and productivity must go hand in hand to enable businesses to better meet the data privacy and access control requirements demanded by customers and enforced by regulatory requirements. As more people access corporate information from diverse locations, devices, and platforms, it is imperative to ensure that only authorized personnel are able to access sensitive information.
