In an effort to virtualize a windows-based computing infrastructure utilized by the ALS high-level controls system, Microsoft 2008 R2 servers were employed for support of the control room console stations. The Windows 2008 R2 server roles were used to create Hyper-V consoles, streamline console deployment, maintain security updates and other support services behind a secure network filter. In the current phase, the aim is to adopt a cluster-based configuration to provide efficient use of server resources and failover capabilities to multiple virtual machines. The current work will discuss the methods and findings from this study.
