System requirements and support options
In this lab, deploy the infrastructure for a highly-virtualized datacenter using Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V and Microsoft System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager. First, configure storage, file shares and virtual switches so that the Hyper-V hosts can use the pooled resources. Next, configure network virtualization to enable Virtual Machines to connect to other services. Finally, create a failover cluster and connect it to the storage and networking fabric. After completing this lab, take Part 2 - Virtual Machine Management, where you will build VMs and services to run on this infrastructure.
