OVERVIEW OF COMPONENTS

Microsoft Windows Server ® 2008 R2 with Hyper-V

The host servers are one of the critical components of a dynamic, virtual infrastructure. The host servers, running Windows Server® 2008 R2 with Hyper- V™ technology, provide the foundation for running virtual machine guests and also provide the management interface between the guests and Microsoft® System Center Virtual Machine Manager.

A detailed host server design and sizing methodology is described and a set of reference server architectures is presented. The reference server architectures are intended to be a starting point for the design process and provide a foundation for documenting the final design.

System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2

The primary tool for managing the virtual infrastructure will be System Center Virtual Machine Manager. System Center Virtual Machine Manager can scale across a wide range of virtual environments, ranging from a single server for smaller environments to a fully distributed enterprise environment that manages hundreds of hosts running thousands of virtual machines.

Virtual Machine Manager delivers the following key features:

  • Designed for managing virtual machines running on Windows Server® 2008 Hyper–V™ and Microsoft Hyper-V Server.

  • Virtualization support for virtual machines running on Microsoft Virtual Server and VMware ESX.

  • End-to-end support for consolidating physical servers onto a virtual infrastructure.

  • Performance and Resource Optimization (PRO) for dynamic and responsive management of virtual infrastructure (requires System Center Operations Manager).

  • Intelligent Placement of virtual workloads on the best-suited physical host servers.
