  • Now that we’ve address virtualization hosting, let’s turn our attention to virtualization management - another key consideration in making sure that companies are able to improve agility and responsiveness when harnessing the benefits of virtualization.As you can see from this slide, System Center Virtual Machine Manager provides a streamlined, single, interface that shares many features with System Center Operations Manager and System Center Configuration Manager. It also follows the new Windows 2008 management paradigm where context sensitive actions and options can be accessed quickly from the right-hand side of the screen in order to help make common operations easier to execute. Likewise, note that System Center Virtual Machine Manager provides a number of ways to help administrators logically organize their virtual and physical assets to help improve administrative operations – and, of course, note that System Center Virtual Machine Manager also provides administrators with a live thumbnail of what’s going on with virtual machines, along with the ability to seamlessly log into them as needed.
  • In fact, let’s look at Hyper-V licensing as it’s something that occasionally causes confusion. First of all, with Hyper-V, customers are free to license as many guest Operating Systems as they need for virtual workloads. But since Hyper-V represents a virtualization role, or feature of Windows – targeted at helping customers consolidate servers and tame complexity, Microsoft therefore assumes that each license of Windows Server 2008 with Hyper-V should be able to handle a certain, pre-set, number of physical and virtual workloads as part of the cost of the operating system. Let’s take a look at simple example. Assume that a small business really only needs a single server to meet all of their needs. Therefore, when they upgrade to Windows Server 2008 Standard, they can run as much physical workload on that server as their hardware can handle – just as with previous versions of Windows Server. But let’s also assume that they have a somewhat finicky legacy application that they rely upon fairly heavily. With Windows Server 2008 they can run a fully licensed virtual machine tasked with handling that workload as part of the licensing price for Windows Server 2008 Standard – as Windows Server 2008 Standard comes with an included license for a virtualized guest.Then, as this slide indicates, customers with Windows Server 2008 Enterprise Edition are entitled to run up to 4 licensed guests as part of the cost of purchasing Windows Server 2008 Enterprise Edition. Of course, as the slide indicates, Windows Server 2008 Datacenter edition allows customers to run as many licensed guests as the hardware can handle. In other words, Microsoft assumes that customers are buying Datacenter Edition for their data-center – where they will be running lots of complex workloads that will typically need full isolation from each other. As such, customers shouldn’t have to pay additional licensing feeds just to account for application complexity and isolation – which makes Windows Server 2008 Datacenter Edition an excellent choice as a server virtualization hosting platform.

  • The IIS Manager in IIS 7.0 provides a new, friendlier, User Interface for administrators to browse, discover, learn, and manage IIS 7.0 configuration settings.Additionally, you can extend the UI to include your own custom functionality.IIS Manager UIIIS 7.0 introduces a completely redesigned user interface (UI), called IIS Manager, that administrators can use to administer IIS servers. This topic describes the sections in the UI. Navigation ToolbarIIS Manager contains a toolbar that you can use to navigate in the UI. Depending on your location or selection in the UI, the following buttons are available:• Back: goes back one page view.• Forward: goes forward one page view.• Refresh Page: updates the view of the current selected object in the UI.• Stop: stops the current action in the UI from completing.• Home: navigates to the home page of the current selection, such as the Web server home page or a site home page.• Help: opens list of links to Help documentation.Connection Manager and TreeIIS 7.0 has a Connections pane and toolbar that lets you connect to Web servers, sites, and applications. When you connect to a Web server, site, or application from the Connections pane, the tree loads the connection along with any children of the parent connection. For example, if you connect to a site, the tree displays the site connection and the applications within that site.The Connections toolbar contains the following buttons that let you interact with the tree:• Create New Connection: starts the connection wizard to connect to a Web server, a site, or an application.• Save Current Connections: saves the connection information for the current list of connections in the tree.• Up: goes up one level in the hierarchy.• Delete Connection: removes the selected connection in the tree. If you click this button when you are on a node other than the connection node, such as a physical folder, the parent connection is removed from the list.WorkspaceThe workspace is the area between the Connections pane and the Actions pane. The workspace has two views: Features View and Content View.When you select Features View, you can configure features for an object, such as a site or an application. For example, when you select a site in the tree and then double-click the Modules feature on the site's Home page, you can configure the modules for that site.When you select Content View, you can view the actual content of the object that you select in the tree. For example, when you select a site in the tree, the workspace displays the contents of that site, such as its physical directories, virtual directories, and files. If you select an object in the list, such as a file, you can click Switch to Features View in the Actions pane or in the right-click menu to configure features for that object. You can also view the Windows properties of content from the Actions pane when you are in Content View.Actions PaneYou can use the Actions pane to configure IIS, ASP.NET, and IIS Manager settings. For example, you can use the Actions pane to open dialog boxes and wizards that let you complete tasks in IIS Manager, such as creating a site, adding a connection string for an application, or configuring recycling settings for an application pool. Additionally, you can complete other tasks from the Actions pane, such as starting and stopping a site or the Web server, or delegating a feature.
  • Deploy and manage ASP and PHP apps on the same server.Consolidate your infrastructureIn the typical shared hosting scenario, it is common to see what is called an 80/20 distribution, where 80 percent of requests go to 20 percent of sites. This results in a small percentage of sites being active at any given time. To allow a higher number of active sites, IIS 7.0 provides active lifetime management. This can help you to reclaim memory from inactive applications in order to allow more active applications to be hosted.IIS 7.0 introduces a new algorithm called dynamic idle, which proactively adjusts the idle timeouts of worker processes based on memory available on the server. As memory becomes low, idle applications are removed more rapidly, thereby allowing more active applications to be hosted. However, if the memory is available, the timeouts can remain large to provide better performance and maintain application state. In addition to allowing more applications to be active, dynamic idle also helps avoid low memory conditions that cause severe performance degradation due to thrashing.

    8. 8. Hyper-V in the Press “My experience has left me extremely impressed. Windows Server 2008 on large-scale, virtualized enterprise servers will make alternatives a very hard sell.” - Infoworld “Microsoft's virtualization has three unique advantages: It costs nothing, its administration is integrated into Microsoft's other server management tools, and Windows Server 2008 is the only host OS it needs to support. In that last case, Windows shops derive a serious performance and scalability kick...” - Infoworld “Hyper-V is free as a built-in feature in Server 2008 Standard and ESX Server costs several thousand dollars per copy, depending on the features purchased, so on a pure bang per buck and ease of use basis, it beats ESX and dare I say it – the Xen solutions built into Linux distros – hands down. - ZDNet “Even though Hyper-V is still pre-1.0 code, I think Microsoft has done a bang-up job with its hypervisor, and it may just turn this Linux freak into a Windows 2008 junkie for running his own personal virtualization needs.” - ZDNet “Yes, jaws actually dropped when it [Hyper-V] was installed in the Test Center.” - CRN

    17. 17. WS08 Proof Points IIS 7 Modular design give hosters control of memory footprint “With the better memory management and modular design, I believe we’ll see performance, reliability, and security on the Windows hosting platform continue to improve” Do more with fewer servers, reducing TCO From what we’ve seen so far, we think it will be possible to significantly reduce the amount of ‘tin’ in the data center. IIS7 appears to offer a great TCO benefit,” Improved Diagnostics Internal operations will definitely take advantage of IIS7’s ability to look into what’s going on inside the worker processes.” Easier to provision Using the new APIs, we’ve streamlined our provisioning system, reducing the code base by about 50 percent.
