This whitepaper defines the supported topologies and provides best practice recommendations for running Office Communications Server 2007 R2 and SQL Server™ 2008 in a Windows Hyper-V environment or other hypervisor technologies.

Overview

Office Communications Server 2007 R2 can be deployed onto Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V, or onto any virtualization solution that is a certified partner through the Server Virtualization Validation Program (SVVP) certified partners for the following workloads:

  • Presence
  • IM (including conferencing, remote access, federation, and Public IM Connectivity)
  • Group Chat

This whitepaper:

  • Identifies which server roles are supported in a virtualized environment
