In this session we will take a look how the Hyper-V platform provides a high level of resiliency for the virtualized workloads. We will take a look at clustering technologies and shared VHDX technology.
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:
ASP.NET App Suspend is a feature of Windows Server 2012 R2 and the .NET Framework 4.5.1 that brings a mobile app “tombstoning”-style feature to ASP.NET Web sites. App Suspend enables developers to use shared hosting services with the experience of dedicated hosting, by making much better use of existing server hardware. In this video, we’ll show you how to configure Internet Information Server (IIS) to enable the ASP.NET App Suspend feature for a site and demonstrate the before-and-after results. After viewing this video, you’ll see why App Suspend is a big step forward in the ASP.NET application user experience.
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.
