Virtual Machines
• Virtual Server 2005 R2 SP1
• Windows Server Virtualization
    Machine/Server Virtualization
•   Virtualization enables the creation of multiple computers in
    software
MS Virtual Machine History
• VM technology dates back to IBM mainframes in the
  early 60s
• Connectix an early leader
  • 1997 – Shipped Virtual PC for MAC
  • 1999 – Shipped Virtual PC for Windows
• Microsoft purchased VM technology
  from Connectix in 2003
  • Virtual PC (Windows & Mac)
  • Virtual Server
• X86 server side usage growing
  • Easily adopted for test & dev
  • Readily moved into production
    Vision for Virtualization :
    Build a Utility Computing Environment
    Breaks the boundary between software and the operating system,
    creating an environment that allows for the dynamic delivery of
    application resources in real-time.

•    IT organizations benefit when          Virtual Applications                                     SoftGrid
     workloads are decoupled from           Any application on any computer on-demand via network

     hardware                               Virtual Operating Systems                     Microsoft VPC/Server
•    Improves availability, manageability   Can be assigned to any hardware

•    Long term, workloads will become       Virtual Hardware (Grid Computing)                    Windows CCS
                                            Can change its computing tasks in real-time
     increasingly dynamic
•    Virtualization is a key enabling       Virtual Storage                                             SANs
                                            Storage and backup over the network
     technology to achieve some of this
     today                                  Virtual Network                                             VPNs
                                            Localizing dispersed resources
•    Critical part of a utility computing
     environment
Why Virtualize?
• Greater Utilization of Server hardware
  • Server consolidation
    •   Reduce server “real estate”, power and cooling requirements
    •   Reduce need for multiple servers in remote branches
• Migrate off legacy hardware
  • And still run legacy applications
• Ease of Duplication and recovery of selected
  environments
• Test & Development environments
  • Flexibility, recovery/rollback, transient needs
• Satisfy temporary hardware requirements
  • Conferences, Migration testing
• Teaching & Training Environments

  Enterprise, Datacenter Editions




4 U
  Virtual Server 2005 R2
• The most cost effective Server Virtualization Platform
• Runs on basically any hardware that can run Windows
  •   Hosts can be Windows Server 2003 R2, XP SP2, Vista
• 64 bit host support
• No special disk systems required:
  •   Can use Direct Attached storage, ISCSI or SAN storage
• Supports a broad spectrum of Guest operating
  systems
• Supports PXE boot for easy Guest deployment
• Fully Scriptable
• Local and Remote Administration via Browser
• Covered by Microsoft’s support agreements
• And it’s free ...
What's new in SP1?
• Support for Hardware-assisted Virtualization
    • Both Intel VT and AMD-V supported
•   VSS Support for virtual machines
•   Offline VHD mounting support
•   Support for Service Connection Points in AD
•   Support for more than 64 VM’s
•   Support for Vista both as a Guest & as a Host
•   127GB default size for Dynamic (VHD) disks
•   Additional Minor Changes
    • Emulated SCSI Bug fix for Linux VM’s
    • VM Host Clustering Setup Guide
Hardware Assisted Virtualization
• What is Hardware Assisted Virtualization?
  •   Technology built in to newer processors that allow fully native
      execution of processor instructions
  •   Without hardware assisted virtualization, 17 instructions can’t be
      virtualized, which means a performance hit
  •   Included in processors from both Intel and AMD
      •   Implementation slightly different per vendor, but transparent to the end user
  •   Still need VM Additions for VMs for other functionality
• What does it provide?
  • Increased speed
      •   Windows: Generally performance neutral, with the exception of
          installation
          •   Installing Windows Server 2003 R2: 2.2 times faster!
          •   Installing Longhorn Server: 1.6 times faster!
      •   Once additions are installed, no major change in performance
      •   Non-Windows: Much faster
• VS 2005 R2 SP1 will still work on hw without Hardware
  Assisted Virtualization
The Virtual Hard Disk (VHD)
• Encapsulates virtual machines in one file
• Versatile format
  • Enables features not possible with physical
    computers
    • Discard sessions
    • Create parent/child disk relationships
  • Being used for other storage concepts
    • Vista Complete PC backup

  Promise (OSP)
  • Simple way to share technical assets
Offline VHD Mounting
• Allows use of use VHD files like a
  mapped hard drive without having to
  run the virtual machine
• One of the most requested features
• Useful for:
   •   Sysprep provisioning
   •   Offline virus scans
   •   Add/remove files
• Not yet a solution for offline patching   VHD   F:\
   •   Microsoft patching tools don’t             E:\

Server Consolidation
• Many approaches to consolidation
  • Virtualization is a powerful option
• Combine heterogeneous workloads
  • Maintain isolation through virtual machines
• 64-bit host support
  • Provides tremendous scalability
  • Can help increase consolidation ratios

    “Provisioning is where Virtual Server 2005 really shines. The use of COM API
    allows us to deploy complete solutions in an automated fashion. We can
    build a forest of virtual machines using one simple Web-based interface,”
    says Skybin. “This represents a major change in the way we deploy and
    manage servers.”
    Maxym Skybin, Senior Technology Specialist, Telus.
Branch Office
• Branch offices have IT needs
  • Little or no IT staff available
• Simplify branch IT operations

    “Using Virtual Server 2005, we can immediately upgrade our restaurant
    hardware and operating system software to take advantage of higher
    performance, reliability, and management features while running older
    applications on Windows NT.” says Brian Yates, Director of Restaurant
    Systems, Jack in the Box.
Development and Testing
• Traditionally large hardware requirements
  • Minimized by using virtual machines
• Virtual machines are ideal
  • Create distributed application environments
  • Rapid provisioning
  • Disk state features capture point-in-time
• Extensive COM API
  • Enables automation and remote control
  • Hundreds of calls

                             Windows hypervisor

                 “Designed for Windows” Server Hardware
 The Hypervisor
• Very thin layer of software
  • Highly reliable
  • Much smaller Trusted Computing Base (TCB)
• No built-in driver model
  • Leverage the large base of Windows drivers
  • Drivers run in a partition
• Will have a well-defined, published interface
  • Allow others to create support for their OS’s as guests
• 64 bit only
• Hardware virtualization assists are required
  • Intel Virtualization Technology
  • AMD “Pacifica”
Windows Server Virtualization: Features
• Key features
  •   The ability to virtualize workloads with few or no limitations as to
      what workloads can/may be virtualized.
  •   Hardware virtualization enabled
  •   Support for both 32-bit and 64-bit guests (child partitions)
  •   Large memory support
      • More than 32 GB of memory per virtual machine
  •   Guest multi-CPU support - Up to 4 way SMP
  •   Enhanced support for virtualized devices
  •   New hardware sharing architecture (VSP/VSC)
       • Disk, networking, input, video

Strategy for a low cost Future
 • Purchase hardware with Virtualization Assistance
   •   Leverage the power of 64 bit
   •   Stagger hardware purchasing to leverage future versions of
       Virtualization assistance
 • Leverage the new Virtualization licensing models for
   Windows Enterprise and Datacenter editions and SQL
   Server Enterprise
 • Include Software Assurance with your Windows Server
   today purchases
 • Leverage the Host clustering high availability and load
   balancing capabilities included with Virtual Server 2005 R2
   SP1
 • Build your virtual systems now in VHD format so that you
   can easily migrate to Windows Server Virtualization in the
   future
Summary
• Microsoft is investing heavily in virtualization
• Virtualization will become a core part of the
  platform
• Virtual Server 2005 R2 SP1 is a cost-
  effective, well-supported platform today
• All encompassing management tools to
  support both physical and virtual
  environments
• Prepare for a low cost future with Microsoft’s
  Virtualization technologies
