comment Should I RAID my SSDs?
I may be wrong, but I thought that SSDs were essential Flash/Thumb drives in a hard drive form-factor. If that is indeed the case, Flash memory has a limited number of writes available to each sector. Aside from general electronics failure, this is the true death of SSDs. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solid-state_drive (under Disadvantages)

I'm not familiar with Intermapper, but I'm sure that you can monitor Replication with Nagios, Xabbix, Cacti, etc., and they have dashboards or plugins for dashboards (which is what I think you may be going for) available for use

comment Does Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V Bare Metal support antivirus?
Hyper-V can be run on Standard and Enterprise editions of 2008. (I'm assuming DataCenter, also, but not sure about the other ed's.), but it's recommended that for production you should run it on Core and manage from the console remotely. I posted some guidance in my answer.

comment Does Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V Bare Metal support antivirus?
@Chopper, Yes, Hyper-V (like AD, File/Print Services, etc) starts as a Windows service. I apologize if I'm wrong about ESX 4; Most of my time was spent on v3.x. Good to know they've changed the architecture out from under me...

I don't remember the guidance on AV for Hyper-V (Check Technet for a whitepaper), but I'm pretty sure that it's a good idea. With that said, I would ensure that your AV provider is Hyper-V -compatible. Without awareness of that, it could try to stomp all over it because Hyper-V is "executing code"...

In other words, a Server 2008 Core machine is directly analogous to VMware ESX, where there is an entire Linux system supporting the virtualization stack.

Server 2008 Core is basically stripped of the standard GUI. There is still a bare-bones (read: "blank") desktop, populated with a command/terminal window. You can still run (some) GUI apps (such as Notepad and help windows), but this is discouraged by the UI presented. Powershell, standard commands, and remote management are encouraged. This is all to save system resources (that are typically spent maintaining a desktop) for services that the server is providing. Hyper-V is a role, like File/Print Services and being a Domain Controller are roles.
