Overview

Overview

  • Module 1: Introduction

  • Module 2: Clustering

  • Module 3: Case Studies


Module 1 introduction

Module 1: Introduction

  • Windows 2000 Server Family

  • Hardware Requirements

  • Differences


Module 1 1 windows 2000 server family

Module 1.1: Windows 2000 Server Family

Windows 2000 Server

Windows 2000 Datacenter Server

Windows 2000 Advanced Server


Module 1 2 hardware requirements

Module 1.2: Hardware Requirements

  • Processor: 133 MHz or higher Pentium-compatible CPU

  • Memory: 128 MB, 256 recommended, 8 GB supported

  • Hard Disk: 2 GB with a minimum of 1 GB free space

  • CPU Support: Up to 8 CPU’s on one machine


Module 1 3 differences

Win 2K Server

Supports 4 CPU’s on single machine

Supports 4 GB of memory

Does not support clustering

Win 2K Advanced Server

Supports 8 CPU’s on a single machine

Supports 8 GB of memory

Supports clustering

Module 1.3: Differences


Module 2 clustering

Module 2: Clustering

  • Key Terms

  • Definition

  • Uses

  • Example


Module 2 1 key terms

Module 2.1: Key Terms

  • Node: Independent computer system working in a group known as a cluster.

  • Failover: If one node in a cluster becomes unavailable, another node will pick up the processes.


Module 2 2 definition

Module 2.2: Definition

  • Multiple PC’s, storage devices, and redundant connections appear to the outside world as one highly available system.

  • Use of failover to increase network stability.


Module 2 3 uses

Module 2.3: Uses

  • E-commerce applications that handle heavier workloads and high-priority processes.

  • Server Clusters provide high availability for applications using failover.

  • Multiple nodes use Network Load Balancing. NLB balances the load of IP traffic across a set of up to 32 identical servers.

  • Note: With .Net server, users can set up clusters at different locations.


Module 2 4 example

Module 2.4: Example

  • Using NLB to service the HTTP traffic from the internet.

  • All client requests are distributed among the servers in the cluster.


Example cont

Example (Cont.)

  • Web servers run independently.

  • They usually do not share information.

  • All servers have a copy of the web page on their local hard disk.

  • If one server should fail, NLB will distribute the traffic.


Module 3 case studies

Module 3: Case Studies

  • Goinvest.com

  • Automated Data Processing (ADP)

  • Black & Decker


Module 3 1 goinvest com

Module 3.1: Goinvest.com

  • Company Info

    • Provider of private label online financial data, content, and technical analysis tools

  • Reasons for using Win2k Advanced Server

    • Burdened with a costly and outdated mix of operating systems and servers

  • Benefits from using Win2k Advanced Server

    • Increased reliability, availability, and scalability

    • Reduced administration costs

    • Load-balancing and fail-over clustering capabilities

Module 3 2 adp

Module 3.2: ADP

  • Company Info

    • Provide computerized transaction processing, data communications, software, and information services

  • Reasons for using Win2k Advanced Server

    • Required a secure network foundation

  • Benefits from using Win2k Advanced Server

    • 33% improvement in time-to-market

    • Significantly reduced deployment & support costs

    • Enhanced competitive advantage through Internet-based support


Module 3 3 black decker

Module 3.3: Black & Decker

  • Company Info

    • Manufacturer of products ranging from power tools and accessories to outdoor power equipment and home cleaning tools

  • Reasons for using Win2k Advanced Server

    • First-generation site had limited functionality

    • Lower total cost of ownership

  • Benefits from using Win2k Advanced Server

    • Servers configured with failover clustering

    • Agility to rapidly execute on new IT initiatives


Summary

Summary

  • Windows 2000 Advanced Server enhances systems with stability, reliability, manageability and scalability

  • Clustering allows multiple computer systems to appear and function as one

  • Companies use Advanced Server because it provides the best total cost of ownership and price-performance, while still providing enterprise-class scalability and reliability
