  9. Windows Server Essentials Experience • Essentials is now installed as a Role on Server 2012 R2 Standard or Datacenter servers • Can be installed on a Domain Controller but DC role is not required to allow for secondary server installation

  10. Demo Server Manager Essentials www.NetComLearning.com

  11. New Management Capabilities in Windows Server 2012 • Highly Available DHCP Service • Provides out-of-the-box support for failover with no need for server clustering • Consists of two servers which can be located across different geographic locations • Can be setup in an active/active or active/passive configuration • Might still require configuration of DHCP Helper Addresses www.NetComLearning.com

  12. New Management Capabilities in Windows Server 2012 • IP Address Management (IPAM) • Manages both Physical and Virtual address space • Monitors health of IP Address environment • Uses SQL Server to store IP address information • Allows definition of user roles, access scope and access policy via role-based access control • Works in conjunction with System Center Virtual Machine Manager through a plugin www.NetComLearning.com

  13. New Management Capabilities in Windows Server 2012 • Dynamic Access Control • Automatically classify data based on content as files are created of modified • Manage access control and audit policies from Active Directory • Integration with RMS allows for automated encryption of data • Access and audit policies can be applied across multiple file servers www.NetComLearning.com

  14. Demo Highly available DHCP www.NetComLearning.com

  15. New Storage Capabilities in Windows Server 2012 • Managing physical storage and storage virtualization • Application support for file servers • Parity, mirrored and simple configurations • Hardware offloading with SMB Direct • Data deduplication • Storage tiers • Transparent failover • SMB Multichannel • Storage QOS • SMB Encryption • Thin provisioning • Storage Live Migration www.NetComLearning.com

  16. New Storage Capabilities in Windows Server 2012 • SANS are NOT dead! • However… • They are no longer required to enable enterprise level virtualization!!! www.NetComLearning.com

  17. New Storage Capabilities in Windows Server 2012 • Storage Pools and Storage Spaces • Virtualization of storage • High availability and redundancy via mirroring or parity • Utilization of storage is optimized through thin provisioning • Connections possible to Solid-State Drives (SSD), Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) and Serial AT Attachment (SATA) hard-disk drives www.NetComLearning.com

  18. New Storage Capabilities in Windows Server 2012 R2 • Storage Tiering • Use solid-state drives (SSD) and hard-disk drives (HHD) in a tiered storage space • Improves performance/cost using industry-standard hardware • Data can be prioritized and pinned to appropriate performance tier www.NetComLearning.com

  19. What’s New in Windows Server 2012 R2 Virtualization • Both Physical and Virtual scalability have been greatly improved • Host support • 320 logical processors per host • 4TB memory per host • 1,024 virtual machines per host • Cluster support • 64 physical nodes • 8,000 virtual machines per cluster • Virtual Machine support • 64 Virtual processors • 1TB memory www.NetComLearning.com

  20. What’s New in Windows Server 2012 R2 Virtualization • Generation 2 Virtual Machines • Dynamic Storage • UEFI firmware with support for GPT OS disks > 2TB • Faster boot time from Virtual SCSI • Online Resize capable • Security • UEFI firmware supports Secure Boot • Fewer emulated devices reduces attach surface of VM • Operations • PXE Boot via vNIC • Hot-add Optical drives www.NetComLearning.com

  21. What’s New in Windows Server 2012 R2 Virtualization • New Virtual Hard Disk Format (VHDX) • Capacity up to 64TB • Corruption protection in event of power failure • VHDX when used with Generation 2 machines • Expand and Shrink Virtual SCSI disks while VM is running www.NetComLearning.com

  22. What’s New in Windows Server 2012 R2 Virtualization • Dynamic Memory • Introduced in Windows Server 2008 R2 • Improvements in Server 2012 & 2012 R2 • Minimum memory configuration • Startup memory configuration • Smart Paging • Memory Ballooning • Memory configuration while VM is running www.NetComLearning.com

  23. What’s New in Windows Server 2012 R2 Virtualization • Virtual Machine Live Cloning • Export a clone of running VM • Allows Duplication of a virtual machine while it is running! • Point-in-time Image of running VM is exported to selected location • Exported VM can be imported at desired location • Export from existing checkpoint of a VM • Allows for export of a clone of a VM from an existing checkpoint • Excellent way to troubleshoot systems without downtime!! www.NetComLearning.com

  24. What’s New in Windows Server 2012 R2 Virtualization • Live Migration has been Upgraded • Live Migration from Server 2012 hosts to Server 2012 R2 hosts • Allows for upgrading hosts from Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V to Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V with no downtime of VMs • Includes Shared Nothing Live Migration • When using SMB share for storage, only the VM run state is transferred for faster migration • Can be automated with PowerShell • This is a one-way migration only!!! • No Live Migration from Server 2102 R2 back to Server 2012! www.NetComLearning.com

  25. What’s New in Windows Server 2012 R2 Virtualization • Automatic Virtual Machine Activation • Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacenter host is activated using license key • Windows Server 2012 R2 VMs created using Automatic Virtual Machine Activation (AVMA) key activates against the valid activated Hyper-V host • AVMA key can be injected in the build for VMs • No product keys to manage on individual VMs • Reporting & Tracking are built in • Activation works when VMs are migrated across differing hosts www.NetComLearning.com

  26. What’s New in Windows Server 2012 & Server 2012 R2 • Where to go from here? • SMB 3.0 - Server Pools and Storage Spaces • Virtual Networking • VDI capabilities • What’s right for you? • System Center – SCCM, SCVMM, SCDPM all have expanded roles due to Server 2012 R2 improvements • The Cloud??? Does it effect you? Do you hybrid? www.NetComLearning.com
