New Hyper-V Server Installation in Nunavik

Installing the latest technologies while maintaining the customers legacy applications

Soleica just installed a new powerful server in one of Nunavik's Northern Villages.

The physical server configuration is as follows:

  • 2 CPUs 4 core, Intel Xeon 3.16 Ghz
  • 16 Gb RAM
  • 64-bit-Architecture
  • 6 SCSI harddisks, 400 Gb each, Raid 5 array

This server runs Windows 2008 Server Entreprise and the Hyper-V virtualisation module.

This new architecture permits to install up to four virtual servers on the same hardware. Each virtual server is completely independent from the others and optimised for its specific work load (e.g. as an Exchange Server 2007).

This architecture enables us to run different environnements (Windows 2003, 2008, etc.) on a single hardware server and thus to use the most recent technologies together with our customer's legacy application.
