“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.”

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

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)

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
