Should You Virtualize Your Exchange 2007 SP1 Environment?

February 19, 2009
"Many people have asked the MS Exchange philosophical question: is virtualization is a good idea when it comes to Exchange? "
 
….With the release of Microsoft Windows Server 2008 with Hyper-V and Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008, a virtualized Exchange 2007 SP1 server is no longer restricted to the realm of the lab; it can be deployed in a production environment and receive full support from Microsoft. 

Before Hyper-V was introduced, to get full redundancy for all Exchange server roles, Contoso would have to deploy 7 physical servers…Flip the page to today and Contoso can give the same level of redundancy and availability with only 3 servers by using virtualization…."
