Windows server 8 hyper v & storage (hans vredevoort)

  1. 1. Windows Server 8 Hyper-V & Storage Hans Vredevoort
  2. 2. Speaker Bio• Consultant & MVP • INOVATIV – The System Center Specialists • System Center, Hyper-V, Cluster, MS Private Cloud • Cluster MVP (2009, 2010, 2011) • Active in Hyper-V community: Hyper-V.nu• Author & Editor • Mastering Hyper-V Deployment (Technical Editor) • Microsoft Private Cloud Computing: Building the Foundation (Co-Author)• Contact • hans.vredevoort@inovativ.nl | @hvredevoort | @hypervnu
  3. 3. Windows 8 Hyper-V & Storage Showing Live Storage Migration between SMB2 shares Deploying to Continuously Available SMB2 File Shares Employing Cluster Shared Volumes 2 Configuring ScaleOut File Server Cluster Serving Out iSCSI Targets to Windows 8 Cluster Using Windows 8 File Services with Pools & SpacesCreating VHDX & Hyper-V guests via PowerShell
  4. 4. 63
  5. 5. Storage Management
  6. 6. The new VHDX virtual disk format• New VHDX format for Hyper-V & Win8 Storage• Large virtual disk size (~ 16TB per VHDX)• Large default block sizes (1MB  32MB  256MB)• Large 4KB sector size (logical + physical same size)• Performant• Mountable• Resilient• Convertible• Scriptable
  7. 7. File Services with Pools & Spaces• Windows 8 Role and Role Services
  8. 8. File Services with Pools & Spaces• Pool is an aggregation of disks• Create virtual disks• Virtual disks = Spaces• Virtual disk behaves like a physical disk – Supports Thin provisioning – Resiliency to failures of physical disks
  9. 9. Integrated iSCSI Target Server• ISCSI Target Server• Optional component of Windows 8 File Server Role• Easy serving of iSCSI disks• Hardware independent• Cluster Support• CSV Support• PowerShell Support
  10. 10. Deployment Options for Hyper-V
  11. 11. Deployment Options for Hyper-V1. External Storage Array – New functionality: ODX & Trim2. File Servers - Pools & Spaces3. Clustered PCI RAID
  12. 12. Offload Data Transfer (ODX)
  13. 13. Deployment Options for Hyper-V• Two separate clusters • Single cluster for VM’s – Cluster to host VMs and storage – Cluster to host storage – VMs can run anywhere – Single CSV namespace
  14. 14. Cluster Shared Volumes 2• Appears as CSVFS• For Hyper-V + other roles• Easy to add a disk to CSV• Higher scalability and reliability• Better interoperability with FS mini-filter drivers• Deep integration with Win8 storage & network technologies• No external authentication• Direct I/O for more scenarios• Multi-subnet Support
  15. 15. Cluster Shared Volumes 2• High Speed CSV I/O Redirection• CSV is integrated with SMB multi-channel – CSV traffic across multiple networks – Improved I/O performance when in redirected mode• CSV takes advantage of SMB2 Direct (SMB2 over RDMA)

  19. 19. Big thanks for attending!! You can build great continuously available platforms that shine withHyper-V across a wide range of storage deployment options
