I wanted to highlight a couple new resources that are available for Hyper-V.  The first is an amazing update to the Hyper-V Technical Information and Resources page on TechNet.  There is great information for Hyper-V including:

  • Installation Guides
  • Deployment and Performance Guidance
  • Deployment Guides
  • Planning and Pre-deployment Tools
  • Management Tools
  • Workload Specific Guides, including Sharepoint, SQL, and Exchange whitepapers

This is definitely a site to bookmark as a Hyper-V technical reference. 

Another nice resource for all the IT Pros out there is a new reference poster available for download, which covers Windows Server 2008 R2 Feature Components architecture.  Here is the Hyper-V Architecture.


The full poster includes not only the Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V architecture, but other Windows Server 2008 R2 features such as

  • Active Directory Domain Services
  • File Services
  • Internet Information Services
  • Remote Desktop Services
  • BranchCache
  • Management Interfaces
  • DirectAccess

This is a nice poster to have around to review what’s in Windows Server 2008 R2.
