Podczas ostatniej mojej sesji na portalu VirtualStudy.pl, poświęconej wysokiej dostępności Windows Server 2008 w kontekscie umów SLA miałem okazję zapowiedzieć kilka ciekawych webcastów, a w zasadzie całą ich serię. Specjalistyczne webcasty na poziomie 300 dotyczyć będą klastrów w Windows Server 2008. Poniżej znajdziecie pełna ich charakterystykę:
High Availability Server Apps with Windows Server 2008 R2 Failover Clusters
Event ID: 1032448853 | Level: 300 | Date & Time: Monday, May 03, 2010 11:00 AM Pacific Time (US & Canada) | Length: 60 minutes
Presenter: Symon Perriman, Program Manager II, Clustering & High-Availability, Microsoft
Abstract: Learn how Windows Server 2008 R2 failover clusters can help increase the availability of important server applications. In this webcast, we provide an overview of a variety of deployment strategies and considerations that impact clusters, including hardware, software, networking, automating deployments with PowerShell, Sysprep, Active Directory, and security. We also demonstrate a cluster deployment using only PowerShell. Other topics we cover include clustering tools and concepts, configuration settings, cluster validation, patching, upgrades, and migration.
Improving the Availability of Virtualization Deployments with CSV and Hyper-V
Event ID: 1032448855 | Level: 300 | Date & Time: Monday, May 10, 2010 11:00 AM Pacific Time (US & Canada) | Length: 60 minutes
Presenter: Jeff Mastro, Program Manager II, Clustering & High-Availability, Microsoft
Abstract: Learn about the various factors to consider when deploying Hyper-V on Cluster Shared Volumes (CSV). In this session, we review basic CSV deployment requirements and provide current suggested best practices for configuration of CSV networking and storage. Other topics we cover include CSV backup and restore considerations, redirected I/O, CSV Maintenance Mode, and CSV troubleshooting tips and techniques.
Clusters and Virtualization: Guest Clustering vs. Host Clustering
Event ID: 1032448849 | Level 300 | Date & Time: Wednesday, May 19, 2010 10:00 AM Pacific Time (US & Canada) | Length: 60 minutes
Presenter: Steven Ekren, Senior Program Manager, Clustering & High-Availability, Microsoft
Abstract: In host clustering the Hyper-V parent partition handles the clustering of virtual machines, while in guest clustering each virtual machine manages the clustering of services or applications running inside the virtual machine. What are the pros and cons of each clustering model? What approach is right for which scenarios? What about combining physical and virtual machines in the same cluster? How do I configure clusters? In this webcast, we address these questions and many more.
Automating and Managing Windows Server Failover Clusters with PowerShell
Event ID: 1032448851 | Level 300 | Date & Time: Monday, May 24, 2010 11:00 AM Pacific Time (US & Canada) | Length: 60 minutes
Presenter: Ahmed Bisht, Senior Program Manager, Clustering & High-Availability, Microsoft
Abstract: Learn how the new failover clustering PowerShell cmdlets introduced in the Windows Server 2008 R2 operating system simplify server management. Coupled with other PowerShell cmdlets included in Windows Server that provide a variety of features and server roles, these new failover clustering tools provide both a powerful command-line interface and scripting capabilities for automation of failover clusters. Attend this webcast to see how easy managing clusters running on Server Core or Microsoft Hyper-V Server can be.
