With the release of Windows Server 2012 R2, Microsoft has changed the game with updates to a number of technologies including Hyper-V and SMB 3.0 and introduced a number of new technologies like storage space, data de-duplication, tiering, etc. In this session you will learn about the difference between a traditional Hyper-V cluster using shared storage and a Hyper-V cluster using SMB. What is SMB 3.0 and why does it matter? We’ll discuss SMB Multichannel, SMB Direct, SMB Transparency and SMB Scale Out. How do you design and build out your own Microsoft Failover Cluster File System?
Others topics will include:
• Use Scale out File System
• Leverage Clustered Shared Volume (CSV) caching
• Understand the requirement and implement SMB Direct (RDMA (iWARP)/RoCE/Infiniband). This feature is amazing!
• SMB Direct vs. not using SMB Direct
• Integrate and leverage storage spaces, tiering and data de-duplication
• How to design and build out your own Hyper Cluster to run on your new File System
• Use Kerberos and configuring constrained delegation
• Running Active Directory on Hyper-V over SMB
• How to share a .vhdx disk between multiple guests
• Integrating Hyper-V over SMB with System Center Virtual Machine Manage Lessons from the field
• What works, what doesn't
• Best Practices
• There will also be demos, demos and more demos.
