– Different Forms of Virtual Server and Host Affinity/Non-Affinity
– Memory Over-Committing and Power Consumption Reduction
– Failover and Recovery and Zero Downtime
– Resource Pooling and Reservation and Auto Crash Recovery
– Hypervisor Clustering and Redundant Physical Connections
– Migration and Relocation Considerations
– Cross-Hypervisor Workload Mobility and Non-Disruptive Service Relocation
– Persistent Virtual Network Configurations and Virtual Server Folder Migration
– Virtual Disk Splitting and Stateless Hypervisors
