Introduction

Microsoft
Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper
-
V builds on the architecture and
functions of Windows Server 2008 Hyper
-
V by adding multiple new features that
enhance product flexibility. The adoption of virtualization in the enterprise has
increased flexibility in deploymen
t and life cycle management of applications. IT
professionals deploy and use virtualization to consolidate workloads and reduce server
sprawl. Additionally, they deploy virtualization with clustering technologies to provide
a robust IT infrastructure with
high availability and quick disaster recovery. Even so,
customers are looking for more flexibility.

This research was made
not only to study and show possibilities of

next generation
virtualization,

but also to estimate how their development and deployment

will go on in
future and what it will cost for
end users
.

Aspects of this research include:



Main characteristics:



Performance



Fail

safety



Energy consumption

Available devices


In this research I’m going to discuss main

features like
fail

and
data transfer speed

2. Literature Review


During the research process the following literature sources were used:



http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyper

Here you can find general information about technology, overview,
development history, fe
atures and current state of technology.




http://www.microsoft.com

There is
web site

dedicated to
Microsoft products

and technologies.
All the news about new devel
opments and technologies, projections and
estimates can be found here.

Methods of Research


Here you can see methods applied during this
research:



Analytics
.

Statistics, projections and estimates.



Comparison with rivals
.



Information review
.

Gathering information from different sources concerning research
topic.


General information about technology was taken from different articles on the w
eb
resources like Wikipedia. Current information about usage of this technology can be seen in
statistics from around the world.


To verify the critical factors for technology assessment, we used a practical approach and
experience gained from other studi
es. Of the major competitors of this technology can be
distinguished VMware. This company has made a good place for the virtualization market.

Live Migration


Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper
-
V provides greater flexibility with live
migration. Live migration is integrated with Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper
-
V and
Microsoft Hyper
-
V Server 2008 R2. With Hyper
-
V live migration, you can move
running vir
tual machines (VMs) from one Hyper
-
V physical host to another, without
any disruption or perceived loss of service

(pic. 3)
. IT professionals increasingly look to
live migration to create a dynamic and flexible IT environment that responds to
emerging busi
ness needs. Live migration provides the core technology required for
dynamic load balancing, VM placement, high availability for virtualized workloads
during physical computer maintenance, and reduced data center power consumption.

Dynamic Memory



New in Windows Server 2008 R2 with SP1, Dynamic Memory enables customers to
better utilize the memory resources of Hyper
-
V hosts by balancing how memory is
distributed between running virtu
al machines. Memory can be dynamically reallocated
between different virtual machines in response to the changing workloads of these
machines. Dynamic Memory thus enables more efficient use of memory while
maintaining consistent workload performance and sc
alability. Implementing Dynamic
Memory means that higher levels of server consolidation can be achieved with minimal
impact on performance. Dynamic Memory also means larger numbers of virtual
desktops per Hyper
-
V
host
.

Most respondents were aware of virtualization technologies and more than half use it.
However, approxim
ately 20% of respondents had never heard of such technologies.
Perhaps this is due to a lack of interest among server operating systems.

times increased efficiency over current systems



Better user experience


Thus we have the technology available even to small companies, which allows you to
reduce costs, increase productivity and Failover Clustering Dat
