At Fenwick & West we recently virtualized our Microsoft SharePoint extranets to make better use of hardware, reduce costs, enhance manageability, and improve processes for disaster recovery. At times, this effort seemed akin to rebuilding a jetliner in midflight!

In this article I’ll discuss the benefits of virtualizing SharePoint, and chronicle the most significant challenges we encountered and overcame in the process of moving our complex extranet environment from physical to virtual servers. It’s my hope that the information provided here will help others considering virtualizing SharePoint and realize successful outcomes as well.
