You can virtualize every aspect of Exchange. The big question is...should you? Microsoft MVP and Exchange expert J. Peter Bruzzese has the answers. In this session, he will talk honestly about the need to be reasonable when planning out Exchange virtualization. You'll learn how to avoid the caveats of over-virtualization – yes, there is such a thing! You’ll explore support-loss-virtualization, which occurs when your Microsoft support slips because you don't follow their explicit guidelines. Even getting that physical Exchange box to the virtual world has its own gotchas, with Peter explaining the pros and cons of P2V. If you're considering virtualized Exchange, or if you're experiencing problems because you already did, get the assistance you need in this session.
