I wanted to highlight a couple new resources that are available for Hyper-V. The first is an amazing update to the Hyper-V Technical Information and Resources page on TechNet. There is great information for Hyper-V including:
- Installation Guides
- Deployment and Performance Guidance
- Deployment Guides
- Planning and Pre-deployment Tools
- Management Tools
- Workload Specific Guides, including Sharepoint, SQL, and Exchange whitepapers
This is definitely a site to bookmark as a Hyper-V technical reference.
Another nice resource for all the IT Pros out there is a new reference poster available for download, which covers Windows Server 2008 R2 Feature Components architecture. Here is the Hyper-V Architecture.
The full poster includes not only the Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V architecture, but other Windows Server 2008 R2 features such as
- Active Directory Domain Services
- File Services
- Internet Information Services
- Remote Desktop Services
- Management Interfaces
This is a nice poster to have around to review what’s in Windows Server 2008 R2.
