Abstract: The Hyper-V Fast Track Virtualization Reference Architecture provides businesses with an affordable, interoperable and reliable industry-leading virtualization and cloud solution choice. This IBM Flex System based offering built around the latest IBM x86 servers, storage and networking takes the complexity out of the solution with step-by-step implementation guide. Validated under the Microsoft® Private Cloud Fast Track program, the IBM virtualization reference architecture combines Microsoft software, consolidated guidance and validated configurations for compute, network, and storage. The Microsoft program requires a certain minimum level of redundancy and fault tolerance across the servers, storage, and networking for the Windows Servers clusters to help ensure a certain level of fault tolerance while managing private cloud pooled resources.
