    For typically small (departmental) environments consisting of 5 physical PC servers (more or less) running departmental applications, what would be the best server consolidation approach ?

  • Hyper-V and VM on same hardware

    Is it possible to install Hyper-V Server 2008 (The free bit, not hyper-v built into Windows Server 2008), create a VM (obviously remotely in the first instance), then run that VM on the same piece of hardware as a kind of default OS, using the keyboard, mouse etc of the server machine?
