1 Introduction Scalability & Performance Security & Multitenancy Flexible Infrastructure High Availability & Resiliency Virtualization Innovation Summary & Wrap Up



4 Hosts Support for up to 320 logical processors& 4TB physical memory per host Support for up to 1,024 virtual machinesper host Clusters Support for up to 64 physical nodes &8,000 virtual machines per cluster Virtual Machines Support for up to 64 virtual processorsand 1TB memory per VM Massive scalability for the most demanding workloads

5 Expand Virtual SCSI Disks1. Grow VHD & VHDX files whilst attachedto a running virtual machine 2. Then expand volume within the guest Shrink Virtual SCSI Disks1. Reduce volume size inside the guest 2. Shrink the size of the VHDor VHDX file whilst the VM is running Online VHDX Resize provides VM storage flexibility

6 vRSS makes it possible to virtualizetraditionally network intensive physicalworkloads Extends the RSS functionality built intoWindows Server 2012 Maximizes resource utilization byspreading VM traffic across multiplevirtual processors Helps virtualized systems reach higherspeeds with 40 Gbps and 100 Gbps NICs Requires no hardware upgrade and workswith any NICs that support RSS Provides Near-Line Rate to a VM on Existing Hardware CPU 0CPU 1 CPU 2 CPU 3 2 2 3 3 1 1 0 0 Incoming packets vProc vNIC

7 Allows an administrator to specify amaximum IOPS cap Takes into account incoming &outgoing IOPS Configurable on a VHDX by VHDXbasis for granular control whilst VM isrunning Prevents VMs from consuming allof the available I/O bandwidth tothe underlying physical resource Supports Dynamic, Fixed& Differencing Control allocation of Storage IOPS between VM Disks


9 Significant Improvements inInteroperability Multiple supported Linux distributionsand versions on Hyper-V. Includes Red Hat, SUSE, OpenSUSE,CentOS, and Ubuntu Comprehensive Feature Support 64 vCPU SMP Virtual SCSI, Hot-Add & Online Resize Full Dynamic Memory Support Live Backup Deeper Integration Services Support Comprehensive feature support for virtualized Linux Server Hardware Independent Hardware Vendor Drivers Windows Kernel Virtual Service Provider Configuration Store Worker Processes Management Service WMI Provider Hyper-V

10 Export a clone of a running VM Point-time image of running VMexported to an alternate location Useful for troubleshooting VMwithout downtime for primary VM Export from an existing checkpoint Export a full cloned virtual machinefrom a point-in-time, existing checkpointof a virtual machine Checkpoints automatically merged intosingle virtual disk Duplication of a Virtual Machine whilst Running VM1VM2

11 Utilizes available CPU resources on thehost to perform compression Compressed memory sent across thenetwork faster Operates on networks with less than 10gigabit bandwidth available Enables a 2X improvement in LiveMigration performance Intelligently Accelerates Live Migration Transfer Speed VM Target host Live migration setup iSCSI, FC or SMB Storage IP connection Configuration data Memory pages compressed, then transferred Memory content MEMORY Modified pages compressed, then transferred Modified memory pages Storage handle moved VM

12 Remote Direct Memory Access deliverslow latency network, CPU utilization &higher bandwidth Supports speeds up to 56Gb/s Windows Server 2012 R2 supports RoCE,iWARP & Infiniband RDMA solutions Delivers the highest performance forLive Migrations Cannot be used with Compression Harness RDMA to Accelerate Live Migration Performance VM Target host Live migration setup iSCSI, FC or SMB Storage IP Connection using RDMA Configuration data Memory pages transferred at high speed Memory content MEMORY Modified pages transferred at high speed Modified memory pages Storage handle moved VM

13 Multi-tenant VPN gateway in WindowsServer 2012 R2 Integral multitenant edge gateway forseamless connectivity Guest clustering for high availability BGP for dynamic routes update Encapsulates & De-encapsulatesNVGRE packets Multitenant aware NAT forInternet access Bridge Between VM Networks & Physical Networks


15 VHDX files can be presented to multipleVMs simultaneously, as shared storage VM sees shared virtual SAS disk Unrestricted number of VMs canconnect to a shared VHDX file Utilizes SCSI-persistent reservations VHDX can reside on a Cluster SharedVolume on block storage, or onFile-based storage Supports both Dynamic and Fixed VHDX Guest Clustering No Longer Bound to Storage Topology Flexible choices for placement of Shared VHDX

16 Once Hyper-V Replica is enabled, VMs begin replication Affordable in-box business continuity anddisaster recovery Configurable replication frequencies of 30seconds, 5 minutes and 15 minutes Secure replication across network Agnostic of hardware on either site No need for other virtual machinereplication technologies Automatic handling of live migration Simple configuration and management Replicate Hyper V VMs from a Primary to a Replica site Once replicated, changes replicated on chosen frequency Upon site failure, VMs can be started on secondary site

17 Replication configured from primary to secondary Once a VM has been successfullyreplicated to the replica site, replicacan be replicated to a 3 rd location Chained Replication Extended Replica contents match theoriginal replication contents Extended Replica replication frequenciescan differ from original replica Useful for scenarios such as SMB ->Service Provider -> Service Provider DRSite Replicate to 3 rd Location for Extra Level of Resiliency Replication can be enabled on the 1 st replica to a 3 rd site


19 Ease of Management & Operations PXE boot from Optimized vNIC Hot-Add CD/DVD Drive Dynamic Storage VMs have UEFI firmware with supportfor GPT partitioned OS boot disks >2TB Faster Boot from Virtual SCSI with OnlineResize & increased performance Security Removal of emulated devices reducesattack surface VM UEFI firmware supports Secure Boot VMs built on Optimized, Software-Based Devices

20 Improved VMBus Capabilities enable: Audio over VMConnect Copy & Paste between Host & Guest Smart Card Redirection Remote Desktop Over VMBus Enabled for Hyper-V on both Server& ClientFully supports Live Migration of VMs Enhancing VMConnect for the Richest Experience

21 Activate VMs without managingproduct keys on a VM by VM basis VMs activated on start-up Reporting & Tracking built-in Activate VMs in remote locations, withor without internet connectivity Works with VM Migration Generic AVMA key for VMs activatesagainst a valid, activated WindowsServer 2012 R2 Hyper-V host Simplifying Activation of Windows Server 2012 R2 VMs
