  1. Introducing Windows Server 2008 R2 Technical Overview

  2. Technology Investment Areas Virtualization Management Web Hyper-V™ with Live Migration Hot Add/Remove VM Storage Remote Desktop Services Power Management Windows PowerShell AD Administrative Center Best Practices Analyzer IIS 7.5 ASP .NET on Server Core Enhanced FTP and WebDAV Administration Modules & Cmdlets Solid Foundation for Enterprise Workloads Scalability and Reliability Better Together with Windows 7 256 Core Support Componentization Boot from SAN or VHD Support for Solid-state Devices File Classification Infrastructure DirectAccess™ BranchCache™ Enhanced Group Policies RemoteApp & Desktop Connections

  3. Virtualization

  4. Overview Virtualization in WS08R2: • Server virtualization with Hyper-V • Presentation virtualization with RDS

  5. Increasing AvailabilityLive Migration Virtual Machine Virtual Machine Memory Content Memory Sync Configuration Data Cluster Node 1 Cluster Node 2 User VHD Network Storage

  6. 64 Logical Processor Support • Overview • Provides Hyper-V the ability to utilizes up to 64 of the logical processor pool presented to Windows Server 2008 R2 • Benefits • Significantly increases host server density • Easily provide multiple processers per virtual machine

  7. VM Chimney (TCP Offload Support) • Overview • TCP/IP traffic in a VM can be offloaded to a physical NIC on the host computer. (disabled by default) • Benefits • Reduce CPU burden • Networking offload to improve performance • Live Migration is fully supported with Full TCP Offload • Cautions: • Not all applications benefit from Chimney • Works best for long-lived connections with large data transfers • Applications with pre-posted buffers • Chimney capable hardware supports a fixed number of offloaded connections – shared between all VMs

  8. Virtual Machine Queue (VMQ) • Overview • NIC can DMA packets directly into VM memory • VM Device buffer gets assigned to one of the queues • Avoids packet copies in the VSP • Avoids route lookup in the virtual switch (VMQ Queue ID) • Allows the NIC to essentially appear as multiple NICs on the physical host (queues) • Disabled by default • Benefits • Host no longer has device DMA data in its own buffer resulting in a shorter path length for I/O (performance gain)

  9. Processor Compatibility Mode • Overview • Allows Live Migration across different CPU versions within the same processor family (i.e. Intel-to-Intel and AMD-to-AMD). • Does NOT enable cross platform from Intel to AMD or vice versa. • Configure compatibility on a per-VM basis. • Abstracts the VM down to the lowest common denominator in terms of instruction sets available to the VM. • Benefits • Provides a great deal of migration flexibility within clusters. • Enables migration across a broader range of Hyper-V host hardware. • No specific hardware requirements needed.

  10. Streamlining Virtualization Management • Hyper-V Management Console • PowerShell command-line interface • System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008

  11. Simplifying Deployment • Boot from .vhd • Enables pre-configuration of virtual and physical computers • Reduces the number of managed images • Simplifies test deployments VHD Boot

  12. Remote Desktop Services in R2 • RDS and VDI – An Integrated Solution • Single broker to connect users to sessions or virtual machines, out of the box solution for VDI scenarios with Hyper-V • Improving the User Experience • Experience rich multimedia, VoIP integration, aero glass remoting, true multi-monitor support • RemoteApp & Desktop Connections • Centrally hosted applications integrated into start menu, desktop, etc. Can personalize a non-work PC with work applications without installing them locally • Improved Management Tool Set • Reduce repetitive task with RDS Powershell support, improved application install, connection broker install & profile management • Platform Investments • Multiple levels of extensibility for custom partner solutions for Remote Desktop Services & VDI based solutions

  13. RDS & VDI – AnIntegrated Solution Remote App Servers Hyper-V-based Remote Desktops Authentication Client RemoteApp & Desktop Web Access Server Remote Desktop Gateway Server Remote Desktop Connection Broker

  18. New & Improved Consoles

  19. Remote PowerShell Scenarios • Fan-Out (1 to Many) • Send the script • Select properties – Allows you to specify which properties to bring back • Throttling – limits number of concurrent operations • Async support – Runs the command in background on client • Fan-In (Many to 1) • Hosting model • Share static data between sessions (eg: cmdlet metadata from snap-in) • Send progress information to client (eg: Connecting, Connected)

  20. The PowerShell Graphical Interfaces Out-GridView Graphical PowerShell Multi-tabbed interface Integrated development environment Syntax coloring

  21. Extending PowerShell Scripts • Advanced functions • Call .NET APIs • Improved debugging • Event log subscription • Write cmdlets in PowerShell script • Script translation • New cmdlets • Community site •
