Agenda
  • Introduction
  • Microsoft Virtual Server 2005
  • Key Scenarios
  • Features and Benefits
    • Improved hardware efficiency
    • Increased administrator productivity and

IT responsiveness

    • Broad set of partner solutions
  • Summary
businesses need efficiency
Businesses Need Efficiency
  • Server managers need more efficient hardware environments
  • Application developers need greater flexibility in development and test environments
  • Businesses need a solution to upgrade and consolidate hardware and still run legacy systems
virtualization
Virtualization
  • Allows multiple operating systems to run simultaneously on the same processor
  • Each independent virtual machine functions as a self-contained computer
  • Run side-by-side testing and production systems on the same machine
    • Use off-the-shelf servers
    • Use fewer servers with higher utilization

Microsoft Virtual Server 2005

The most cost-effective virtual machine solution designed for Windows Server 2003

  • Increases operational efficiency
    • Software test and development
    • Legacy application re-hosting
    • Server consolidation scenarios
  • A key deliverable of the Dynamic Systems Initiative (DSI)

Microsoft Virtual Server 2005

Virtual Server will be available to customers in two editions:

  • Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 Enterprise Edition, and
  • Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 Standard Edition.  

Features across the two Editions are the same, scalability is the only difference.  Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 Standard Edition will support up to four processors and Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 Enterprise Edition will support up to 32 physical processors.

test and development
Test and Development
  • Consolidate and automate software test and development environments
    • Virtual Server enables side-by-side testing and production on the same system
      • Greater flexibility
      • Better test coverage
      • Developer productivity
      • User experience
  • Test distributed server applications on a single physical server
migrate legacy applications
Migrate Legacy Applications
  • Applications often outlive their original OS or hardware
  • Virtual Server enables better choice
    • Smooth application re-hosting with solid application compatibility
    • Upgrade infrastructure without having to upgrade or rewrite applications
    • Run legacy applications in native environments in virtual machines
consolidate proper workloads
Consolidate Proper Workloads
  • Consolidate multiple server workloads
    • Higher hardware utilization
    • Increased manageability
  • Use Virtual Server for
    • Consolidation of infrastructure services
    • Disaster recovery environments
    • Departmental or branch office services
server consolidation
Server Consolidation
  • Windows Server 2003 is best for other workloads
  • Homogeneous Workloads
    • Consolidate natively on Windows Server 2003
    • File, Print, Domain, Email, Database
  • Heterogeneous Workloads
    • Web can consolidate natively on Windows Server 2003
    • For mixed applications choose the right tool
