Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V guest IOps and network portability demos

I have the good fortune of working with some great folks here at Microsoft HQ – some of which I have been following for quite some time. Last week at TechEd NorthAmerica Jeff Woolsey was on the main keynote stage demonstrating a whirlwind of functionalities and achievements of the next generation of Hyper-V in Windows Server 2012. I’ve pulled out two things that interest me VERY much I thought I’d share.

Specifically – the VM Guest capability of getting 3x the IO throughput via the new virtual HBA adapters then VMware guests can get.  We almost hit 1 million IOps with this demo on stage, but I swear I saw it over a million in rehearsal that morning and the night before.

Also of interest is the IP portability demo that was part of the TechEd North America and Europe “foundation” session I produced. It was called “Modernizing your Datacenter” which was well received. Taking the keyboard for the demo is my friend Michael Leworthy to show us what Windows Server 2012 and System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2012 can do for scenarios like Hosters or Mergers and Acquisitions.
