Microsoft has done it again! With the introduction of Windows Server 2012, Microsoft has released a stunning
upgrade to their previous server. A new emphasis on the private cloud and Windows 8 integration make this perhaps
their most ambitious server upgrade yet. Attendees will learn about the new features in Windows Server 2012, and
the all-new editions available. With the new emphasis on the private cloud, you’ll learn how Microsoft implements
cloud computing with their latest server OS.

  • Why new(est)? I was here four years ago discussing a brand new certification strategy.Who here has used Windows Server 2012? Windows Server 2008? Windows 8?
  • This diagram is from the Wiki page defining Cloud Computing. It doesn’t really clear things up for you does it?So, why CLOUD computing? The term comes from the manner in which the Internet (and other complex systems) is symbolized in network diagrams.
  • Most of you have probably seen something like this diagram – the Internet is always symbolized as a cloud because the Internet is too vast and complex to be described with any other networking symbol. So that’s where ‘cloud computing’ comes from. Nobody knows quite how to describe it; it consists of many technologies working together so let’s just abstract the whole thing with the term cloud.
  • So, in words, cloud computing is this:Multitenancy: simultaneous sharing of common resources so that only one instance of the resource is required for multiple clients.
  • SaaS – ‘on-demand’ applications – Google Apps, Office 365PaaS – customer uses providers tools and infrastructure to develop and deliver (SaaS) applications; Windows Azure Cloud Services, Google App EngineIaaS – customer buys time on VMs to use as they see fit; Amazon Web Services, Windows Azure VMs, Rackspace, HP Cloud, Google Compute Engine, etc.
  • Love it or hate it, similar to the new Windows 8 Start screen, just not as colorful.okay who has used the new Windows 8/2012 ui? Anybody love it? Hate it?
  • Foundation: cannot be retail purchased. Essentials: $500 Standard: $900 Datacenter: $4800
  • New Server Manager provides centralized multi-server management.Some tasks required logging on to each server to perform the task. With the new Server Manager, you can manage most tasks on all servers from a single console.Create server groups; manage multiple servers
  • New Dashboard view gives you a quick look at what is installed across all servers in the domain.
  • Not really a new feature but a new emphasis on command-line server administration. Note that Server Core Installation is the first (and preferred) option.
  • Typical Server Core desktop with a command prompt and a powershell window.
  • Okay, aside from the new UI, here are some of the many new features in Windows Server 2012.
  • Replica – copy of VM while it is running; designed for WAN links to minimize bandwidth saturation; inexpensive disaster recovery compared to failover clustersOther: Live storage migration, - move virtual disk with no down time Concurrent live migrations Live snapshot merging
  • Storage Spaces: Makes it easier to provision storage from multiple storage types and devices (internal, external, SATA, SAS, USB, SCSI) Flexible, low-cost fault tolerance for non high-performance applications Ability to designate hot spares for a pool with automatic repair Grow storage pools on demand Local and remote mgt.; GUI or PowerShell Limitations:Not supported on boot, system, or CSV volumes Drives must be 10GB or larger When you introduce a drive into a storage pool, the contents of the drive being added will be lost. Add only un-formatted/un-partitioned drives A simple storage pool must consist of at least one drive A mirrored pool must have at least 2 drives.  For 3-way mirroring there is an obvious need for more Three drive minimum for using Parity All drives in a pool must use the same sector sizeFibre-channel and iSCSI are not supported Storage must be storport.sys compatible
  • This feature is being called a ‘game-changer’ where resource access control is concernedThe old way of granting permissions still exists – DAC works with Sharing and NTFSUser Attributes such as department, location, etc. can be used to create access rulesData can be classified (internal only, highly sensitive, etc.) and access rules and actions taken based on classification (automatic encryption, no external access, etc.)
  • Better software-based fault tolerance performanceShared storage pools across physical machinesLarger volume sizes - up to 2 ^78 bytes, (281 Trillion Terabytes)Cannot boot from an ReFS volume as of now.
  • Pooled: you don’t access a particular server or desktop, you just access an application and the necessary resource is allocated from the poolSelf-service: Users can ‘help themselves’ to virtual desktops and other resources as neededElastic: Running out of computing power on an application? An additional CPU can be dynamically assigned to that application.Usage-based: pay as you go for what you use
  • Windows Server 2012 with Hyper-V is what powers the cloud on individual serversSystem Center allows management of an enterprise of servers to work as a single cloud entityVMM is the heart of the virtualized cloudApp controller provides self-service applications and virtual machines (VDI)Other components of SC 2012 SP1 include: Data Protection Manager Operations Manager Orchestrator Service Manager
  • Manage all Hyper-V hosts and virtualization resourcesPerform advanced tasks such as live migration of storage and VMsManage virtual networks
  • Worldwide job figures

  • Session Outline• What is Cloud Computing?• Introducing Windows Server 2012• Windows Server 2012 and the Private Cloud• Microsoft‟s New(est) Certification Strategy
  • What is Cloud Computing?
  • What is Cloud Computing? The Internet – the original Cloud
  • What is Cloud Computing?• Cloud computing: – Abstracts the details of how applications, storage, network, and other computing resources are delivered – Uses virtualization, remote access methods (remote desktop), shared storage, multi- tenancy – Top cloud application is storage, followed by conferencing/collaboration
  • What is Cloud Computing?• Two broad cloud computing categories: – Public cloud • Computing resources are provided by a third party • Computing resources are accessed via the Internet – Private cloud • Computing resources are provided by your IT department • Resources are virtualized so that much of the processing occurs in the IT datacenter
  • What is Cloud Computing? Public cloud
  • What is Cloud Computing? Internal datacenterTypical LAN orWAN connection Private cloud
  • What is Cloud Computing?• The three aaS of cloud computing: – Software as a Service (SaaS) – Platform as a Service (PaaS) – Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)• Other aaS that are subsets of these – Network as a Service, Storage as a Service, Security as a Service, Desktop as a Service, Data as a Service, and so on.
  • What is Cloud Computing?• Are you using public cloud computing? – The answer is yes, if you use: • Google Apps (including Gmail) • Microsoft Office 365 • Dropbox, iCloud, SkyDrive, Box, etc. • Netflix (uses Amazon‟s public cloud service) • or a host of other online services
  • What is Cloud Computing?• Are you using private cloud computing? – The answer is yes if: • you use virtual desktops at work • you use Windows remote desktop to access your applications and/or desktop interface • connect to virtualized applications or servers
  • What is Cloud Computing?• Why use cloud computing? – Lower up-front costs to get an application off the ground – 50% of companies planning or in the process of migrating to cloud computing – Influenced by employees using personal computing devices – Lower maintenance burden – 13% savings for IT budgets reported after adoption of cloud computing
