Today we rolled out live an addition to our current Hyper-V roll-out – a top of the range HP DL160 G6 server with two quad-core Intel Xeon CPU’s and 64Gb RAM.

Soon to be upgraded to 6 gigabit ethernet ports to ensure high-speed connectivity between the Hyper-V front end on the server and the iSCSI SAN and facilitate Live Migration and load-ballancing across the Hyper-V font-end servers.
