Windows Server 2012 R2: Hyper-V High-Availability with Failover Clustering
This technical session discusses Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V and Failover Clustering design, infrastructure planning and deployment considerations for your highly-available datacenter or Private Cloud. Symon Perriman, Microsoft's Private Cloud Senior Technical Evangelist and former Program Manager on the Server High-Availability engineering team, discusses the pros and cons of how different solutions to provide continuous availability to virtualized environments with a focus on Failover Clustering. Learn how Windows Server 2012 R2 moves the datacenter closer to a hybrid cloud implementation, while offering persistent availability from both planned and unplanned downtime. This session will cover licensing, hardware, validation, deployment, upgrades, host clustering, guest clustering, disaster recovery, multi-site clustering, and offer a wealth of best practices. Prior clustering and Hyper-V knowledge recommended.
Objective: Design an enterprise-class high-availability solution; Learn the best practices to optimize your networks and storage for virtualization; See how Failover Clustering and Hyper-V provide critical Private Cloud infrastructure
