Building and Managing a Virtual Environment with Hyper-V Server 2012 R2

Video Description

Build, deploy, and manage Hyper-V in failover cluster environments

About This Video

  • Configure node computers for participation in a Hyper-V cluster

  • Tackle the complicated subjects of storage and networking in a Hyper-V cluster

  • Maximize uptime for the services provided by your virtual machines

  • In Detail

    The blend of Hyper-V and failover clustering provides strong resilience to your organization's critical applications and services. Where Hyper-V provides hardware abstraction, system consolidation, rapid deployment, and simple portability on one hand, failover clustering adds features such as rapid, automated failure handling and downtime-free maintenance for hardware.

    Building and Managing a Virtual Environment with Hyper-V Server 2012 R2 is a video series designed to present the complexities of Hyper-V and failover cluster configuration in easily digestible chunks. The segments feature demonstrations of the concepts explained in the video, being executed on an actual Hyper-V cluster.

    You'll begin with the basics of setting up your nodes, gathering them into the cluster, and working with your shared storage system. Then you'll get an in-depth tour of managing your systems using the built-in graphical tools and PowerShell cmdlets. With that foundation, you'll learn advanced concepts of virtual machine migration and cluster protection. You'll also discover detailed maintenance steps, such as how Cluster-Aware Updating keeps your nodes patched without impacting virtual machines.

    Building and Managing a Virtual Environment with Hyper-V Server 2012 R2 will present you with the knowledge and examples you need to successfully design and deploy your own Hyper-V clusters.
