In this session will take a look at how we protect our VM's and make sure they are resilient. We will take a look at local backup, Windows Azure backup and Hyper-V replication. We will also take a look a brief look at System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM). As your infrastructure grows, and you want to start managing many Hyper-V hosts at scale, and want to take advantage of more advanced deployment options and capabilities. SCVMM plays a very important role, and in this session you get an introduction to this tool
In preparation for the event, we recommend that you download the free, full-featured version of Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2012 R2 as well these other free evaluations available for download:
SQL Server connections in cloud scenarios – including with Windows Azure SQL Database – have an inherent degree of unreliability when compared to local SQL Server client/server connections. These challenges to reliability derive from several factors, including inconsistent Internet connectivity, machines in a cluster failing over and databases switching partitions. In this video, you’ll see how to use the new ADO.NET Connection Resiliency feature to add an extra level of resiliency and address these cloud-specific database connection considerations.
This session will dive into the mobility, high availability and disaster recovery technologies that can be used with Hyper-V to enable the most reliable yet flexible deployment of Hyper-V. Key technologies including Live Migration, Hyper-V Replica, clustering and Azure Site Recovery will be covered.
