At [00:10] Symon meets with Jeff Woolsey, a Principal Program Manager Lead for Windows Server Hyper-V, to discuss the new virtualization features just released in Windows Server 2012. First, Jeff defines the goals for Hyper-V virtualization in its third release and covers some of the features providing greater scale, network virtualization, and storage virtualization. Next, they talk about the live migration technology and how it has been improved in this release in order to provide more resiliency while supporting an unlimited number of simultaneous live migrations. Jeff then talks about the new types of live migration introduced in this release, including live migration over SMB connections, storage live migration, and "shared nothing" live migration. At [20:20] Jeff shows a demo of a "shared nothing" live migration in which he moves a running VM between two standalone servers with no downtime. Finally, Jeff talks about how System Center 2012 SP1 Virtual Machine Manager takes advantages of these new capabilities and shows a second demo at [25:45].
