Hyper-V is Microsoft's hypervisor-based virtualization system for x86-64 systems that supports isolation in terms of partitions. These partitions can each run copies of operating systems and allow applications to run in isolation.
As companies move to a more virtualized environment, many will choose to use different virtualization technologies. Each of these technologies, Hyper-V included, give companies opportunities to better manage capacity in data centers. Some people have argued that virtualization and the management tools that are built in have eliminated the need for a Capacity Management process and/or a Capacity Management staff. This couldn't be farther from the truth, as a poorly managed virtualized environment can cause performance problems for all the services that run in the environment. Therefore, proper Capacity Management processes are even more important in a virtualized environment.
Once a company recognizes that Capacity Management is vital, the next step is to put a process and a set of tools in place that will help the Capacity Manager understand and make appropriate recommendations to management.
This webinar will look at the following:
•A brief overview of Hyper-V
•A look at the data and information that's available to the Capacity Manager
•Some unique challenges that Hyper-V brings to the Capacity Manager
•How a properly managed Hyper-V environment can help maximize the use of the deployed hardware
