  • Key pointsEveryone thinks about server virt when they think about virt – we have history here w/ Virtual Server, and a big strength w/ Hyper-VBut, there’s more to virt than server virt…As virtualization becomes more pervasive, management is much more critical to enable dynamic scenarios – System Center can sit at the heart of all of this“When we think about virtualization, most of the hype in the industry today is focused on machine virtualization or server virtualization, and certainly server virtualization is a critical enabling technology where I'm able to encapsulate an operating system and application and my data all together.  Microsoft's solution there is that we have a solution, Virtual Server, in market, and now with Windows Server 2008, a key feature of Windows Server 2008 is Hyper-V, our hypervisor-based virtualization solution. That is in the process of coming to market and will be released to market within the next three to four weeks or so; which is great but that's just one kind of virtualization. Depending on the problem that you're trying to solve, there are a number of different virtualization technologies that are important to take advantage of.  So Application Virtualization: On clients the ability to do application isolation and to stream application on-demand is critical; if we think about the adaptive application delivery, which I'll talk to in a minute, and we have the leading virtualization capability here with Microsoft Application Virtualization.  Desktop virtualization: Virtual PC has been in market for awhile, and then we announced an acquisition of a company called Kidaro to really enable enterprise-class desktop virtualization solutions and scenarios.  Then presentation virtualization, which you may know of as Terminal Services, but the ability to centrally manage and host an application and the data, and just serve out the interaction with that, so present it up to a user remotely. All of these different pieces can play a role in the solution that you're trying to solve for, but what's critical is at the heart of this is management. In a virtualized world, management becomes much, much more critical in enabling some of these dynamic scenarios that we talk about. So, take a broad view and think about desktop to datacenter.”

  • This slide shows the four key messages of our server virtualization solution: It begins by outlining the key business value that our solution offers – from server consolidation, to business continuity to dynamic provisioning. To gain this value we have two key technologies that, combined together, provide a comprehensive virtualization solution.Windows Server 2008 – virtualization is included as a key feature of this new release. The messages to get across here are: - it’s the Windows you count on and use today. . It easily integrates into your existing systems. No need to learn a new system. - 80% of virtualized machines are Windows – this allows you to run Windows on Windows.2) System Center is a full lifecycle management product that deploys, monitors and backs up both your virtual and physical infrastructure from one platformThe messages to get across here are: - Management becomes essential with virtualization because a) when resources are virtual, you need management to act as the “radar screen” to know where resources are located and b) to unlock the ability to dynamically move resources around, you need policy and model-based systems that can get resources to the right place in real-time - You want a single pane of glass to view both your physical and virtual resources – you don’t want to create islands of virtual (which is all you can do with VMware) as that adds complexity to your mgmt process. - You want to be able to gain knowledge down at the application level to truly enable dynamic allocation of resources. Only System Center can do this – VMware will only tell you about the state of a virtual machine.3) Refer back to the key scenarios: It is the combination of virtualization and management that unlocks business value.The messages to get across here are: – Server 2008 with System Center is what allows you to build a foundation for a dynamic datacenter - The combination of the two products enable you to achieve the key scenarios of virtualization: - With VMM, you can easily convert physical servers to virtual server, enabling server consolidation - With DPM you can build the foundation for your business continuity plan - With SCCM you can patch virtual and physical servers so they’re always up to date - And with SCOM you can monitor the health of your VMs and apps running inside, providing the data to dynamically provision the right server to the right host in real-time.4) This combined solution is very cost effective – and approximately one third the price of VMwareThe messages to get across here are: - The Enterprise license for Windows Server 2008 list at $3,999 – this allows you to have up to 4 copies of Windows running on your physical server/host - The System Center Enterprise Suite lists at $860 – this allows you use of all four System Center products on an unlimited number of virtual guests per physical server/host - Combined, the cost is approximately $4,860 – approximately one-third the price of VMware’s Enterprise offering which is approximately $14,700 – for all the same features.In sum, the message of this slide is to show that Microsoft is clearly in the game with this combined offering – with similar features and business benefits – at a much lower cost than VMware.
  • Speaking NotesMicrosoft Assessment and Planning (MAP) Solution Accelerator is an integrated tool that makes it easier for IT professionals and consultants to conduct network-wide readiness assessments for migration to Microsoft technologies from servers, to desktops and applications. With the help of its agent-less inventory, performance data gathering, and auto-generated proposal and report generation capabilities, Microsoft customers and partners can now more quickly and efficiently determine the right candidates for the following products: • Windows operating system migration and deployment (servers or desktops)• Server Virtualization (Hyper-V or Virtual Server 2005 R2)• Application Virtualization (SoftGrid)MAP is the expanded version of the Windows Vista Hardware Assessment Solution Accelerator tool that was released in early 2007. New features include Windows Server 2008 hardware compatibility assessment, virtualization candidacy recommendation for Virtual Server 2005 R2 (this release) and Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V (future release), and infrastructure assessment for Microsoft Application Virtualization.Get MAP Download here:

  • Hyper-V support for VDI -Providing a better virtualization platform for scalable and highly available VDI deploymentsLive Migration of Virtual Machines – With Live Migration, there will be no perceived downtime in the desktop workloads running in the VM, and network connections from and to the VM being migrated will stay connected. This capability will be possible between hosts within a High Availability cluster.Support for Enhanced Virtualization Capabilities in the Hardware – Support for Nested Page Tables (NPT) and Extended Page tables (EPT) in Intel and AMD hardware. These capabilities improve the performance of translation of memory addresses.Thenew Remote Desktop Connection Broker, which extends the Session Broker capabilities already found in Windows Server 2008, creates a unified admin experience for traditional session-based remote desktops and (new) virtual machine-based remote desktops. The two key deployment scenarios supported by the Remote Desktop Connection Broker, besides traditional TS, are persistent (permanent) VMs and pooled VMs. In either case, the in-box solution supports storage of the image(s) on the Hyper-V host.SCVMM 2008 support provides intelligent placement of VMs during placement, fast and reliable P2V and V2V (VMware to Hyper-V) conversions as well monitoring of all virtual and physical assets from “one single pane of glass”.

    2. 2. Why Virtualize? Drive Increase Enable Costs Down IT Efficiency Business Agility Server Consolidation Rapid Provisioning Dynamic Datacenters & Desktops Energy & Space Reduction High Availability Accelerated Responsiveness Application Compatibility Business Continuity “Why is virtualization such a big deal? A lot of people understand, and they think it's about saving money, it's about saving power, it's about green IT, it's about space, and that's certainly true. But in our perspective, it's much, much bigger than that, and people are just now beginning to understand that. We think that there's a major transformation taking place in IT. This major transformation that's been taking place for years is starting to accelerate, and we believe that virtualization is a major enabler and catalyst of that transition that's taking place.” - Tom Bittman, Gartner VP and Chief of Research of Infrastructure and Operations, at Microsoft’s Virtualization Launch Event

    6. 6. Server Consolidation: The Fastest Way to Reduce Costs Challenges: Underutilized hardware Excessive power consumption Expensive space across datacenter and branch offices “We expect to consolidate an additional 75 servers using Hyper-V, which will lead to a cost savings of more than $325,000 annually. By the time we hit our fifth virtual machine, we’ve usually paid for the host. Long term, we will be able to reduce our total data center holdings by 75 percent—from nearly 400 servers Server to fewer than 100 servers.” Robert McShinsky Senior Systems Administrator, Utilization Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center
    7. 7. Virtualized Workloads Microsoft fully supports our key server applications in a virtualized environment Microsoft has updated server workload licensing to enable virtualization mobility Management of the workloads is key, not just the virtual machine “Maxol runs Exchange Server 2007, SQL “We’ve seen first-hand that we can Server 2005, Terminal Services, and file and virtualize everything from file, print, and print servers as key workloads in its virtual web servers to database servers running environment. Going forward, nearly every SQL Server and Oracle, and actually have business application at Maxol will be a the virtual machine run *faster* than candidate for virtualization.” what it ran on our original physical box.” Maxol Case Study Janssen Jones, Indiana University

    17. 17. Customer Cost Savings with Hyper-V and System Center Virtual Machine Manager Increased Server Utilization “The current average server utilization at the bank is approximately 20 percent, and the bank is deploying nearly 200 new servers per year. Using Hyper-V to deploy several applications on one physical server will allow the bank to reduce this number to just over 640 servers, resulting in a 36 percent decrease in the number of servers required. This will lower the hardware and data center costs for the servers, including space, power, and cooling, by 4.7 million kroner (U.S.$1 million).” Saxo Bank Case Study Accelerated Time to Production “Building a physical server took almost four hours before virtualization. Hyper-V has helped decrease this time to 20 minutes. The simplified management console in System Center Virtual Machine Manager reduces this time even more, so build time is down to 10 minutes. The value of the time savings associated with the server management improvements is estimated to be AU$1,055,000 (U.S.$999,985) per year. WorleyParsons Case Study Reduced Energy Costs “Our number one cost has been power in the data center. We currently spend about $11,000 a month, but with Hyper-V we expect to reduce it to $2,500.” Matt Woodings, Chief Technology Officer, HotSchedules

Customer Network Assess customer’s environment and recommend the right technologies MAP Tool User (IT Pro/Partner) “Before physical-to-virtual (P2V) conversions Report Generation began, Costco IT staff used the Microsoft Assessment and Planning (MAP) Toolkit to For Different Migration evaluate server loads. Using the toolkit, staff Scenarios members discovered that, in many cases, servers were running at only 5 percent utilization, making them good candidates for consolidation.” Costco Wholesale Corp Case Study
    21. 21. Application Compatibility Challenges: • Application incompatibilities Application • Lengthy testing Virtualization App-to-app Solution: incompatibilities Eliminate application conflicts and testing by using desktop and application virtualization “It used to take us up to 4 hours to restore a damaged client computer. With Microsoft Application Virtualization, the same process Desktop & takes only a quarter of an hour. If you take into Presentation consideration that we used to have to carry Virtualization out manual interventions on almost 200 of our App-to-OS 650 PCs when updating, you can imagine how incompatibilities many man-hours we save on this process alone.” Claude Progin, Group Manager of Information Technology and Logistics for the City of Biel
