Lesson 1: Overview of Microsoft Virtualization


Challenges of Traditional Computing Environments What Is Server Virtualization? What Is Network Virtualization? Key Technologies

Challenges of Traditional Computing Environments


Traditional challenges: Space - Housing business equipment Power - Providing affordable power to run the server, storage and network equipment Cooling- Maintaining safe operating temperatures for equipment Resilience - Building robust and highly available solutions and offering a means to recover data Flexibility Providing the time to deliver or upgrade infrastructure and or applications Resources Maintaining staff-to-system ratios and meeting training challenges

What Is Server Virtualization?


Server virtualization: You can create and run multiple computer operating systems on a single physical computer Host servers share resources with all the virtual machines Virtualization challenges: Limited number of compute resources Server virtualization features: Hyper-V server virtualization feature allow full utilization of physical resource and provide advanced technology to make a more robust, available and dynamic server computing environment.
