Hyper-V in the current OS has help many organization to build private cloud. But windows Server 2012 taken this step further. Microsoft has redesigned the operating system to be cloud optimized and in today session, I will be covered on 3 key area on how to build your private cloudScalabilityFlexibilityHA

Session Objective and TakeawaySession Objective Key Takeaway• Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V • Virtualize with Windows Server 2012 Features • Choose Hyper-V• Just Virtualization feature … • Start build Private Cloud with Microsoft
Windows Server 2012 is Cloud OptimizedScalability, & Flexible Delivery HighPerformance Infrastructure Availability
Move Virtual Machine Storage With No DowntimeLive storage migration • Move virtual hard disks (VHDs) attached to a running virtual machineBenefits • Manage storage in a cloud environment with greater flexibility and control • Move storage with no downtime • Update physical storage available to a virtual machine (such as SMB-based VHD storage) • Windows PowerShell cmdlets 12
Improve Live Migration• Concurrent Live Migrations• Live Migration Queuing Concurrent Live Migrations: Multiple simultaneous LMs for a given source or target Live Migration Queuing: In-box tools queue & manage large numbers of VMs
Migrate Virtual Machines Without DowntimeSMB-Share-based LiveMigration• Storage remains on SMB ShareImprovements• Faster migration and simultaneous migration• Live migration outside a clustered environment SMB-share-based live migration 14
WOULDN’T IT BE GREAT IF YOU COULDLIVE MIGRATE A VM WITH NOTHING BUT AN ETHERNET CABLE?
Migrate Virtual Machines With Just Ethernet“Shared Nothing” Live Migration • Virtual machine migration between two computers that do not share an infrastructureBenefits• Increase flexibility of virtual machine placement• Increase administrator efficiency• Reduce downtime for migrations across cluster boundaries “Share nothing” live migration 16
Cluster Aware Updating (CAU) Admin Initiate Cluster-Aware• Automated cluster updating Update Updating Coordinator• Eliminate downtime associated with• cluster updating• Coordinator serially updates all nodes – Windows Update Agent (WUA) • Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) • Windows Update
Disaster Happen Anywhere … Tsunami…Earthquake … 911 incident…How to protect your datacenter?
DR Solution – Hyper-V Replica• Replicate VMs from a Primary to a Replica site• Built in Site to Site Replication• Failover recovery in minutes• Work with any server vendor, any network vendor, any storage vendor
