Hyper-V Dynamic Memory test for VDI density

Hi, I’m Michael Kleef, senior technical product manager within the Windows Server and Cloud division. As Brad Anderson and I discussed at the TechEd Europe keynote today, Dynamic Memory, a new feature in Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, can increase Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) densities by 40% compared to Hyper-V in Windows Server 2008 R2 and also well above a leading industry solution. It’s also not just a benefit to VDI. Our Technology Adoption Program (TAP) customer data also highlights that other server workloads benefit... [Lire la suite]

I downloaded Symantec’s Application HA and decided to give it a spin, I already started documenting the installation of the ApplicationHA Console and the Guest Component but Mr Sloof beat me to it and documented his finding in the following two articles. ApplicationHA – Install and Configure The ApplicationHA Configuration Wizard – Monitoring SQL Server 2008 No need to repeat it in my opinion as Eric did an excellent... [Lire la suite]
