Information and announcements from Program Managers, Product Managers, Developers and Testers in the Microsoft Virtualization team.
I’ve had the pleasure of talking with customers in the last few months and the Hyper-V R2 reception has been nothing but unequivocally positive. Whether it’s been folks in small, medium or the enterprise, they appreciate the new capabilities in Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V and the free Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 R2. At the same time, we’re always listening to our customers to better understand their business requirements and requests so we know know what to build for subsequent releases. Today, we’re pleased to announce new capabilities that will enhance both virtualized server and virtualized desktop deployments:
What Virtualization Users Have Told Us
When it comes to virtualization and memory, virtualization users have repeatedly provided the following requirements:
Their comments are clear: Maximize our investment in the hardware resources, provide high density, and with a minimal performance impact.
(Speaking of performance, Hyper-V R2 performance is exceptional. We recently released an in depth performance analysis on Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V R2 Virtual Hard Disk Performance using a variety of workloads including SQL, Exchange, Web and more. This is a must read: http://download.microsoft.com/download/0/7/7/0778C0BB-5281-4390-92CD-EC138A18F2F9/WS08_R2_VHD_Performance_WhitePaper.docx)
Virtual Machine Performance & Density
If you think about Virtual Machine Performance and Virtual Machine Density as a continuum and you can place the slider, where would you position the slider?
Up to now, we’ve opted to err on the side of performance with excellent results. Now, customers are asking us to start moving that slider over to increase density and still minimize performance impact, so that’s what we’re doing.
So, what is Dynamic Memory? At a high level, Hyper-V Dynamic Memory is a memory management enhancement for Hyper-V designed for production use that enables customers to achieve higher consolidation/VM density ratios. In my next blog, we’ll dive deep into Hyper-V Dynamic Memory…
Congratulations again! Super blog. If you promote it through three way link exchange we will put links on one of our websites or blogs for a link to the website: http://www.epariuri.ro
very nice blog... thanks.. www.lopoca.com
I have a friend who admin a 2T memory VM. Something around 1000 users use this memory.

This really is an awesome post, I'm happy I recently found. I have been trying to find guest writers for my blog so if you ever decide that's something you are interested in please feel free to contact me. I will be back to look at out more of your articles later<a href="http://www.freebet.ro/" rel="follow">pariuri online</a>
Excellent post, thank you very much for taking the time to share with those who are starting on the subject. Greetings www.freebet.ro
Dynamic Memory is good feature, but i found that Windows Home Server 2011 didn't make use of this feature ?!? (It's based on 2008R2(with SP1 build in)
Windows Home Server 2008 is dynamic memory aware and will use it.
I'm delighted that I've observed this weblog. Finally something not junky, which we suffer incredibly frequently. The website is well serviced and stored up to date. So it must be, thank you for sharing this with us.

I am lost in translation... from what my understanding of Dynamic memory is allocating Ram among guest on Virtual environment depending on their usage etc. Is that about right?
Your favorite justification seemed to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that they plainly don't know about.
