image I had a great conversation with Michael Noel on TechNet Radio, we talked about the many benefits on SharePoint Virtualization.  We also briefly discussed on what roles should be considered for virtualization.  One of the great tidbits that came up was that you could accomplish what would take 4 physical servers with 2 physical servers using hyper-v.  Powerful stuff!  Take a look at a great white paper, written by Michael, that highlights SharePoint Virtualization: Virtualization of Microsoft SharePoint Products and Technologies

Michael Noel is a a partner at Convergent Computing – a Microsoft Gold partner.  He is the author of several books including SharePoint 2007 Unleashed and Windows Server 2008 Unleashed, as well as a recognized speaker at many industry events worldwide.

I hope you enjoy the interview and check it out here:
