  3. 3. Enabling Hyper-V overSMB
  4. 4. Hyper-V over SMBServer Message Block (SMB) protocol… • Is a network file sharing protocol that allows applications on a computer to read and write to files and to request services from server programs in a computer network • Windows Server 2012 introduces the new 3.0 version of the SMB protocolWith Windows Server 2012, Hyper-V… • Can store virtual machine files (configuration, VHD, snapshots) in files shares over the SMB 3.0 protocol • Is supported for both stand-alone and clustered servers that use Hyper-V with shared file storage for the cluster • Can support scale-out file shares and clusters • Can leverage SMB Multi-Channel
  5. 5. Enabling Hyper-V overSMB I care?Why should
  6. 6. Why should I care? • Ease of provisioning and management • You can manage file shares instead of storage fabric and logical unit numbers (LUNs). • Increased flexibility • You can dynamically migrate virtual machines or databases in the data center. • Ability to take advantage of existing investment in a converged network • You can use your existing converged network with no specialized storage networking hardware. • Reduced capital expenditures • Capital expenses (acquisition costs) are reduced. • Reduced operating expenditures • You can reduce operating costs because there is no need for specialized storage expertise.
  7. 7. Enabling Hyper-V overSMBOverviewTechnical
  8. 8. Requirements • One or more computers running Windows Server 2012 with the File Services role installed • One or more computers running Windows Server 2012 with the Hyper-V role installed (separate from the file server) • A common Active Directory infrastructure • The servers running Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) do not need to run Windows Server 2012 • Supported configurations • Standalone Hyper-V servers (no a high-availability solution) • Hyper-V servers configured in a Failover Cluster Although not required, Failover Clustering is supported on the Hyper-V side, the File Services side, or both. They must be separate clusters.
  9. 9. Common Configurations
  10. 10. Hyper-V Over SMBWorkflow1. Install the Hyper-V role on a Windows Server 2012 machine2. Install the File Services role on a Windows Server 2012 machine3. Create an SMB file share4. Create a virtual machine and virtual machine hard disk on the file share5. Migrate existing virtual machine storage to the file share
  11. 11. Creating an SMB ShareFrom Server Manager: 1. Log on or connect to a Windows Server 2012 computer on which the File and Storage role is installed. Open Server Manager and navigate to File and Storage Services 2. In Server Manager, start the New Share WizardWith PowerShell: # Create folder MD X:VMS # Create file share New-SmbShare -Name VMS1 -Path X:VMS -FullAccess DomainHVAdmin, DomainHV1$, DomainHV2$, DomainHVC$ # Set NTFS permissions from the file share permissions (Get-SmbShare VMS1).PresetPathAcl | Set-Acl
  12. 12. Migrating Storage to an SMBShare You can migrate from… • Direct-Attached Storage to SMB file share • SMB file share to another SMB file share 1. To determine the current storage being used by a virtual machine: Get-VM VM1 | FT Name, Path, State Get-VMHardDiskDrive VM1 | FT VMName, Path 2. To migrate the virtual machine storage to an SMB file share: Move-VMStorage –VMName VM1 –DestinationStoragePath FSTVMS 3. To confirm migration: Get-VM VM1 | FT Name, Path, State Get-VMHardDiskDrive VM1 | FT VMName, Path

  49. 49. Shared Nothing LiveMigrationWhat is it?
  50. 50. Shared Nothing Live Migration The ability to move a virtual machine while it is powered on from one host to another without requiring shared storage • Faster and simultaneous migration • Entire VM moved with no downtime • VHD, configuration files, snapshots, etc. • Improved performance and flexibility • No longer requires a clustered environment or shared storage* Live Migration can be done with shared storage and clustered VMs, but “Shared Nothing” uses neither
  51. 51. Shared Nothing LiveMigrationWhy should I care?
  52. 52. Why should I care?The challenge… • In Windows Server 2008 R2, migration of Hyper-V data required a shared infrastructure • Implementing shared storage and failover clustering can be expensive • In order to migrate data from one host to another, both had to have a simultaneous connection to a shared storage device that could buffer dataThe Windows Server 2012 solution… • Shared nothing means the hosts needs to share nothing but a simple Ethernet connection to each other • Data is migrated without the need for a costly infrastructure • No devices are required to assist with buffering
  53. 53. Shared Nothing Live MigrationTechnical Overview
  54. 54. Live Migration – Moving aRunning VM without SharedStorage 1. Live Migration setup occurs 2. Memory pages are transferred from the source server to the destination server 3.

  63. 63. Storage Spaces and Thin Provisioning OverviewWhy should I care?Technology OverviewDemoNext Steps
  64. 64. Storage Spaces and ThinProvisioningOverview
  65. 65. What is Storage Spaces & ThinProvisioning?Storage Spaces • New in Windows Server 2012 • Provides an in-box storage virtualization that can use low-cost commodity storage devices • Aggregates unallocated space on physical disks installed in or connected to servers through a “pooling” model • Can provide a cost-effective platform for business critical storage across a variety of scenariosThin Provisioning • “Just-in-Time” allocations of storage with the ability to reclaim storage (“Trim”) • Integrated with Storage Spaces
  66. 66. Storage Spaces and ThinProvisioningWhy should I care?
  67. 67. Why should I care?The features of Storage Spaces are designed to meet a variety of challenges insupport of highly-available storage Storage pools • Can be mapped to combinations of hard disks as well as solid-state drives (SSDs) • Can be expanded dynamically by simply adding additional drives, thereby seamlessly scaling to cope with unceasing data growth Multitenancy • Administration of storage pools can be controlled through access control lists (ACLs) and delegated on a per-pool basis • Can be fully integrated with Active Directory Domain Services Resilient storage • Storage Spaces support two optional resiliency modes (mirroring and parity) • Per-pool support for disks that are reserved for replacing failed disks (hot spares), background scrubbing, and intelligent error correction allow continuous service availability despite storage component failures
  68. 68. Why should I care? (cont.)Continuous Availability • Failover clustering integration delivers continuously available service deployments • One or more pools can be clustered across multiple nodes within a single cluster. Storage spaces can then be instantiated on individual nodes, and the storage will seamlessly fail over to a different node when necessary (in response to failure conditions or due to load balancing) • Integration with CSVs permits scale-out access to dataOptimal storage use through thin provisioning • To allow businesses to easily share storage capacity among multiple unrelated data sets and thereby maximize capacity use • Trim support permits capacity reclamation when possibleOperational simplicity • Easily managed through the File Services role in Server Manager • Fully remoteable and scriptable management through the Windows Storage Management API, WMI, and Windows PowerShell • Designed to be compatible with existing backup-restore and cloning tools, as well as snapshotting infrastructures
  69. 69. Storage Spaces and ThinProvisioningTechnical Overview
  70. 70. Storage SpacesRequirements• Windows Server 2012 Drive Stand-Alone Clustered• Serial ATA (SATA) or Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) Type File Servers File Servers connected disks (in an optional just-a-bunch-of- SATA Supported disks [JBOD] enclosure)• Multinode clustered shared-storage deployments SCSI Supported • Two or more servers running Windows Server iSCSI Supported Supported 2012 SAS Supported Supported • Requirements as specified for failover USB Supported clustering and Windows CSV • SAS connected JBODs that comply with Windows Certification requirements• The criterion for determining which drives are eligible to be part of a Pool are: • Minimum drive size is 10 GB • Drive is empty, i.e. no partition data exists on the drive • Drive is not assigned to any other pool • The Primordial Pool will consist of Physical Disks that are not assigned to any existing Storage Pool

  76. 76. Data Redundancy inStorage Spaces Redundancy Description Type Simple • Data is striped across physical disks • Maximizes capacity • Increases throughput Mirror • Data is duplicated on two or three physical disks • Increases reliability • Reduces capacity by 50 to 66 percent Parity • Data and parity information are striped across physical disks • Increases reliability • Reduces capacity by 13 to 33 percent
  77. 77. Deduplication• Capacity Optimization• Scale and Performance• Reliability and Data Integrity
  78. 78. Managing Storage withPowerShell PowerShell is required to access many of the advanced features afforded by the new Storage Management application programming interface (API)Example: New-StoragePool Parameters configured with GUI and PowerShell • Underlying storage pool name • Virtual disk name • Resiliency setting (Simple, Mirror, or parity) • Provisioning type (Thin or Fixed) • Virtual disk sizeParameters configured only with PowerShell • Number of columns: the number of columns the virtual disk contains • Number of data copies - number of complete copies of data that can be maintained • Disk interleave - number of bytes forming a stripe • Physical disks to use - specific disks to use in the virtual disk
  79. 79. Integrating Storage Poolswith Failover Clustering • Clustered Storage Spaces require fixed provisioning • Clustered virtual disks require underlying hardware to support persistent reservations
  80. 80. Thin Provisioning and TrimRequirements • Enabled by default in Windows Server 2012 • Storage infrastructure that complies with the certification that is required for Windows Server 2012 • Standards-compliant hardware for identificationCapabilities • Identification • Windows Server 2012 uses a standardized method to detect and identify thinly provisioned virtual disks • Notification • When configured physical storage use thresholds are reached, Windows Server 2012 notifies the administrator through events; events can be used for automated actions by sophisticated management applications, such as Microsoft System Center • Optimization • Windows Server 2012 provides a new API that lets applications return storage when it is no longer needed. • NTFS issues trim notifications in real time when appropriate. • Trim notifications are issued as part of storage consolidation (optimization), which is performed regularly on a scheduled basis

  85. 85. Continuously Available FileSharesWhat is it?
  86. 86. Scale-Out FileServices/Shares Allow you to scale the capacity of file servers upward or downward dynamically by using Failover Clustering with… CSV File System (CSVFS) SMB 3.0 • Appears as a single consistent • SMB Scale Out file namespace, although the • SMB Transparent Failover underlying file system remains • SMB Multichannel NTFS • SMB Direct • Allows direct I/O for file data • SMB Performance Counters for Server access and supports sparse Applications files • SMB Performance Optimizations • Allows encryption through • SMB Management with Windows BitLocker PowerShell • Backups of CSV no longer • SMB Remote File Storage require redirected I/O • Supports SMB 3.0 features
  87. 87. Continuously Available FileSharescare?Why should I
  88. 88. Why should I care?The challenge… • Prior to Windows Server 2012, highly available file services were provided by failover cluster Client Access Point (CAP) that clients could use to connect to SMB (Server Message Block) or Network File System (NFS) shares on physical disk resources • If you deployed a shared-nothing cluster, only one node in a cluster File Server group could be online • In the event of a failure or if the File Server group was moved to another cluster node, clients were disconnected and had to reconnect when the group became available on an online node in the clusterThe solution… • The File Server Role has been expanded to include a new scenario where application data (specifically Hyper-V and SQL Server) is supported on highly available SMB shares • Provides access with almost zero downtime
  89. 89. Continuously Available FileSharesTechnical Overview
  90. 90. Continuously Available FileServers General Use File Server • Almost identical to Windows Server 2008 R2 • Shares can be made continuously available with the help of the SMB 3.0 protocol Scale Out File Server • Provides continuously available file services for application data • Responds to increased demands quickly by bringing more servers online • Takes advantage of new features in Windows Server 2012 Failover Clustering • Distributed Network Name (DNN) • Cluster Shared Volumes Version 2 • Scale Out File Server role (must be enabled on all nodes in the cluster • Clusters of Scale Out File Servers are limited to 4 servers
