virtualisation in the real world
Let Care Micro reduce your IT costs while improving the efficiency, availability, flexibility, and manageability of your network infrastructure with VMware virtualisation. No matter how large or small your organisation, the proven technology of virtualisation can rapidly transform your IT landscape.
Windows Server 2008 R2 builds on the award-winning foundation of Windows Server 2008, with new features that can help you increase the reliability and automation of your server infrastructure. End users and IT pros like the interoperability with Microsoft Windows 7, but it’s the behind-the-scenes advancements that really make a difference. The enhanced power management system can lower power states of processors and even turn off individual cores when servers are at low utilisation, which saves energy and money.
The consolidation and virtualisation capabilities of Windows Server 2008 R2 offers some notable business results, helps lower hardware and facility costs and reduces your carbon footprint and energy expenses. Built in Hyper-V virtualises system resources from the desktop to the server without the need for third-party software, moves virtual machines without downtime through Live Migration and connects your people to resources without the need for establishing a VPN. And you control it all from a single screen.
The new Hyper-V™ was designed to augment both existing virtual machine management as well as to address specific IT challenges, especially around server migration.
Hyper-V™ is an enabling technology for one of Windows Server 2008 R2’s marquee features, Live Migration. With Hyper-V version 1.0, Windows Server 2008 was capable of Quick Migration, which could move VMs between physical hosts with only a few seconds of down-time. Still, those few seconds were enough to cause difficulties in certain scenarios, especially those includling client connections to VM-hosted servers. With Live Migration, moves between physical targets happen in milliseconds, which means migration operations become invisible to connected users. Making this even easier is a new feature called processor compatibility mode, which allows administrators to migrate machines between different generations of same-brand CPUs.
Customers employing System Center Virtual Machine Manager for Hyper-V will also enjoy additional management and orchestration scenarios, including a new VM-oriented Performance and Resource Optimization feature and updated support for managing failover clusters.
The new Hyper-V™ also has core performance enhancements, including the previously mentioned ability to take advantage of up to 64 logical processors and to beef up that CPU performance with host support for Second Level Translation (SLAT). Finally, VMs can also add and remove storage without requiring a reboot and also boot from VHD as well.
