I kind of doubt that most data center admins have the luxury of being able to work on their gaming high scores while in the office as briefly illustrated in this new CitrixTV video. While humorous in tone, this video does a good job of illustrating how the combination of HP StorageWorks P4000, Citrix Essentials, and Microsoft Hyper-V delivers a high availability and site recovery solution able to protect multi-site Hyper-V environments from simple hardware failures to complete data center outages.

If you are interested to go deeper into the configurations, actual solution test scenarios and best practices for this solution check out the companion technical blueprint paper. Follow Citrix and HP on twitter, and there is a wealth of additonal resources on the Citrix and HP Community.
