TechNet Webcast: Deploying Enterprise Workloads on Microsoft Virtualization (Level 200)
Wednesday, March 02, 2011 10:00 AM
Pacific Time (US & Canada)
Event ID: 1032477054
Product(s): Microsoft Hyper-V Server.
Audience(s): IT Decision Maker, IT Generalist.
Event Overview: Dynamic memory enables higher density Microsoft Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) deployments which take Hyper-V to the next level. With Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) as the guest in our lab testing, we saw a 40 percent increase in density from Windows Server 2008 R2 to SP1, simply by enabling dynamic memory. Unlike others in the marketplace, Windows 7 security can stay preserved without compromising density, and you get immediate benefit from the moment you turn on the virtual machine. There's no waiting for memory management to work or having to tweak the hypervisor with custom settings. It's an awesome out-of-box experience that performs for all workloads, not just VDI alone.
Presenter: Michael Kleef, Senior Product Manager, Microsoft Corporation
