6 Why We Virtualize “Why is virtualization such a big deal? A lot of people understand, and they think it's about saving money, it's about saving power, it's about green IT, it's about space, and that's certainly true. But in our perspective, it's much, much bigger than that, and people are just now beginning to understand that. We think that there's a major transformation taking place in IT. This major transformation that's been taking place for years is starting to accelerate, and we believe that virtualization is a major enabler and catalyst of that transition that's taking place.” - Tom Bittman, Gartner VP and Chief of Research of Infrastructure and Operations, at Microsoft’s Virtualization Launch Event

7 Hardware OS Data, User settings Applications Roaming Profiles + Folder Redirection Roaming Profiles + Folder Redirection Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) Microsoft Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) Microsoft Enterprise Desktop Virtualization (MED-V) Local Desktop Virtualization Remote Desktop Virtualization Focus: Reducing Costs Focus: Increasing Flexibility Session-Based Desktops (RDS) Traditional Client Computing RemoteApp (RDS)

8 Opportunities: Retire older hardware Reduce physical servers, floor space, and power Repurpose freed servers for new business needs Rejoice in the new processor technologies Server Utilization

9 “Maxol runs Exchange Server 2007, SQL Server 2005, Terminal Services, and file and print servers as key workloads in its virtual environment. Going forward, nearly every business application at Maxol will be a candidate for virtualization.” - Maxol Case Study Full support for key server applications in a virtualized environment Server workload licensing to enable virtualization mobility Management of the workloads is key, not just the virtual machine “We’ve seen first-hand that we can virtualize everything from file, print, and web servers to database servers running SQL Server and Oracle, and actually have the virtual machine run *faster* than what it ran on our original physical box.” - Janssen Jones, Indiana University + Line of Business Applications

15 Business Continuity with Virtualization Adding virtualization to your business continuity plan will reduce costs and minimize business downtime by: Increasing the availability of server infrastructure Inexpensively extending protection to more applications Minimizing time and resources needed to support infrastructure Disaster Recovery High Availability Backup and Recovery Business Continuity Quick/Live Migration VHD Shared Storage Backup/Recovery Clustering Secondary Site Primary Site Storage Array Disaster Recovery Backup/Recovery 15

16 High Availability for Virtual Environments Host Clustering with Migration Capability Virtual machine Guests failover from one node to another Hyper-V leverages Windows Server 2008 Clustering for Quick Migration VHDs reside on shared disk Hosts are clustered Guests are not clustered Guest VMs can run any OS

17 Virtualization Storage Fundamentals VM storage options Virtual hard disks Dynamically expanding Fixed size differencing Pass through disks Direct access FC or iSCSI Usually higher performance Direct iSCSI disk Exposed directly to VM

18 SharePoint Server 2007 Recent SharePoint adopters are more likely to use server virtualization for deployments Consolidation - Much more manageable Easier to scale Balanced utilization and flexible configuration Farm mobility – HA, DR Does your organization run SharePoint on virtual machines or physical servers Source: Enterprise Strategy Group, Dec 08 Use of VMs vs. physical servers for SharePoint deployments, by length of time SharePoint has been deployed Source: Enterprise Strategy Group, Dec 08 Among organizations that have been using SharePoint in production for less than 6 months, 42% have done so on a virtual infrastructure
