The City has “bare metal” Microsoft Windows servers (“bare metal” server = a physical server that is dedicated to a single tenant.) The City wants to virtualize these servers, create a process for snapshot backups, and implement (and test) a strategy for disaster recovery. The City wants to make this change strategically, with a minimal amount of additional hardware & software purchases.
