Written by: Stephen Withers | Published in: EnterpriseHitachi Data Systems is getting firmly behind Windows Server 2012 with the announcement that Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform (VSP), Hitachi Unified Storage (HUS), and Hitachi Compute Blade are now fully certified with full support for Windows Server 2012.
I have a 10 year old Dell Poweredge 2950 that will be replaced with a Dell Poweredge R820. Both of these machines are set up as a Virtual Machine Host Running Hyper-V. Both Operating Systems are Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard x64 Bit.
I offer cloud based services and even the short down time for a Windows update reboot haunts me. I need to learn how to setup an environment such that my web services, e-commerce server and SQL Server 2008 R2 database server are always up.
I do not use or know about virtualization; I have a half dozen servers, dedicated storage array (SAN), etc. in a rack.
