Microsoft platform for virtualization and environment management Aleksandar Zubović MCS Consultant Microsoft Virtualization Strategy Best TCO/ROI It’s the Platform you know Data center to desktop End-to-End Management 1/3 the price up front Key feature of platform Full range of products & solutions Physical and Virtual & Cross-hypervisor Significant Savings Tools you know Large partner ecosystem Interoperability Lower ongoing costs Virtualization Improves IT Flexibility and Agility… Operating System installed to hardware Presentation and process on same computer Applications installed to OS Data resides on local computer Machine Virtualization OS can be assigned to any desktop or server Presentation Virtualization Presentation layer separate from process Application Virtualization Any application on any computer on-demand User-State Virtualization Data resides on the network Microsoft Virtualization Products From the Datacenter to the Desktop Server Virtualization Application Virtualization Presentation Virtualization Desktop Virtualization “Having one vendor for the hypervisor, operating system, and much of our application software was very appealing to us from a support and cost perspective.” Bert Van Pottelberghe, Sales Director, Hostbasket User State Virtualization Document redirection Offline files What Is Presentation Virtualization? • Run an application in one location but have it be displayed and controlled in another – Only screen images, keystrokes and mouse movements are sent over the network What is Application Virtualization? Application Isolation Dynamic Streaming System Center Integration Software as a Centrallymanaged Service What is Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) ? • VDI is an emerging technology which – similar to terminal services - enables a centralized desktop strategy • Storage and execution of a desktop workload (OS, apps, data) on a virtual machine in the datacenter • Presentation of the UI via a remote desktop protocol (such as RDP) to user devices such as thin and rich clients 7 Server Consolidation: The Fastest Way to Reduce Costs Challenges: • Underutilized hardware • Excessive power consumption • Expensive space across datacenter and branch offices Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V Delivers high levels of availability for production workloads via flexible and dynamic management while reducing overall costs through efficient server consolidation via: Better flexibility Live Migration Cluster Shared Volumes Hot Add/remove of Storage Improved performance Improved memory management TCP Offload support Virtual Machine Queue (VMQ) Support Improved Networking Greater Scalability 64 logical processor support Enhance Green IT with Core Parking Live Migration • Overview – Moving a virtual machine from one server to another without loss of service Greater Scalability 64 logical processor support Core Parking 64 Logical Processor Support Overview Provides Hyper-V the ability to utilizes up to 64 of the logical processor pool presented to Windows Server 2008 R2 Windows Server 2008 R2 Server Core Parking • Overview – Scheduling virtual machines on a single server for density as opposed to dispersion – This allows “park/sleep” cores by putting them in deep C states Windows Server 2008 (w/o core parking) 16 LP Server Server Core Parking 16 LP Server Microsoft Assessment and Planning • Expanded version of WVHA • Integrated Portal with Tools and Guidance • Agentless inventory of clients, servers, applications, devices and roles • Technology migration and readiness assessments including desktop and server migration with virtualization • Powerful Pre-Sales Assessment Tool for multiple products (proposals included) Windows Server 2008 R2 Other Products

Management Moves Front And Center Servers must be configured and optimized Increasing power and space concerns Greater number of deployments and updates Must support compliance, process and controls More internal and external pressures Access drives security and protection Must be available and responsive Higher service levels demanded Importance of interoperability and openness Must ensure business continuity and dependable recovery Centralized assets drives disaster contingency Virtualization for business continuity Data Center Management Solutions Configuration Management Automated Provisioning and Updating of Physical and Virtual Environments Server Consolidation Through Virtualization End to End Monitoring Proactive Platform Monitoring Application and Service Level Monitoring Interoperable and Extensible Platform Server Compliance Configuration Controls and Reporting Centralized Security Auditing Comprehensive Security and Identity and Access Mgmt Data Protection and Recovery Business Continuity Thru Virtualization Management Backup and Recovery of Physical and Virtual Resources Disaster Recovery Configuration Management Automated provisioning and server consolidation Manage virtual machines to consolidate physical servers Identify candidates servers and do quick physical-to-virtual and virtual-to-virtual conversion for server consolidation Effective and secure patching and upgrading of VM’s Control VM sprawl by consolidating workloads, moving virtual machines, and shutting down unneeded virtual hosts Guidance and best practice services to reduce server sprawl and improve virtualization management Centralize, automate and manage both physical and virtual server software deployments in the data center Capacity planning and resource optimization Quick provisioning of operating systems, applications, patches and updates on both physical and virtual servers Guidance and tools for planning and server deployment Up-to-date inventory and visibility of the servers and applications which reside in the data center Guidance and best practice services for configuration management optimization to streamline IT operations End To End Monitoring Proactive platform, application and service-level monitoring Availability, performance, and configuration monitoring to proactively address IT issues Monitor multiple platforms (e.g. Windows, Linux, and UNIX) for both your physical and virtual servers Proactively keep systems up and running with best-practice knowledge on how to resolve problems Allow configuration change monitoring by identifying configuration errors and changes Diagram data center operations and visualize status Report on status of configuration and system issues affecting availability, performance, and reliability Deep application and service -level monitoring Monitor service levels across applications and IT processes through operational IT service views Track and report service levels through dashboards Extend to monitor non-Microsoft applications with partners Guidance and best practice services to meet service-level goals and improve IT productivity Server Compliance Configuration controls and centralized audit of system security Create, maintain and report configuration controls for the data center environment Establish desired configuration states and assess server compliance Assess potential datacenter vulnerabilities Provide visibility into the status of compliance with configuration controls to support internal and regulatory compliance efforts Gather and report security related events Collect events for reporting and tracking on such areas as user access audit, account lockouts, privilege changes, asset inventory and regulatory compliance Backup and store data to meet data retention policies Manage identities, access and improve security in the data center Easily Manage passwords, privileges, and user provisioning Securely protect the data center IT infrastructure from malware and viruses on Windows Server Data Protection And Recovery Backup and restore and business continuity through virtualization Ensure business continuity and responsiveness with server virtualization management backup and restore Distribute workloads over locations to ensure continuous and uninterrupted business operations Provide replication and movement of virtual machines and applications for planned backups Recover and restore physical and virtual environments after an outage, data loss or corruption Allows backup and recover of mission critical workloads Perform continuous data protection using integrated disk and tape media Enable rapid and reliable recovery from disk as well as long term data protection through tape based backup Recover both physical and virtual systems after an outage, data loss or corruption Allows geoclustering for disaster recovery and business continuance by physically separating cluster nodes data center A data center B Managing The Server Lifecycle Conclusion System Center has solutions to meet the changing data center To meet the data center’s needs Power management Server consolidation Provisioning and
