Dostupné BETA certifikační zkoušky pro Windows 2008 MCITP EA+SA

Dnes večer našeho času byly zveřejněny informace o BETA testech na certifikační zkoušky pro Windows Server 2008 70-646 a 70-647. Jedná se o hlavní zkoušky pro získání certifikace Microsoft Certified IT Professional Enterprise a Server Administrator. BETA testování by mělo začít 21. prosince 2007 a trvat by mělo přibližně týden. Samotné finální verze zkoušek by měly být podle neověřených informací k dispozici 20. března 2008. Dále jsou převzaté informace z Microsoftu.
 
 
The Windows Server 2008 MCITP betas (70-646 and 70-647) open on December 21, I think. And invites will go out right round then, so please keep clam.
In the meantime, you might want to try this on for size: "Windows Server 2008 RC1 with Hyper-V Beta is publicly available here." Alternately, you could put that in your pipe, and smoke it.
Try the Windows Server learning portal or Windows Server 2008 info on TechNet for help brushing up on items below.

Microsoft Virtualization. Jak pracuje HYPERVISOR.

Dne 13. října 2007, měl významný engineer z Microsoftu Eric Traut prezentaci na University of Illinois o virtualizačních technologiích společnosti Microsoft a také se zmínil o Windows 7 – příští verzi Windows po systému Vista. ZDE je k dispozici přibližně hodinový záznam této prezentace, ukazující hlubší pohled na to, jak pracuje technologie Hypervisor.

Uvedení nových verzí VMware ESX Serveru 3.5 a VirtualCenter 2.5

Společnost VMware vydala 11. prosince 2007 novou verzi vlajkové lodi na poli virtualizace – VMware ESX Server verzi 3.5. Zároveň byla vydána nová verze VirtualCenter 2.5, což je hlavní nástroj pro konfiguraci a správu virtuálních prostředí od společnosti VMware. Vzhledem k tomu, že virtualizace pro enterprise zákazníky od společnosti Microsoft bude vydána až po uvedení Windows Serveru 2008 na trh, zůstává otázkou zda tito zákazníci budou nadále čekat na "levnější integrované řešení" nebo se rozhodnou pro novou verzi VMware ESX Serveru.
 
Nové vlastnosti VMware ESX Server 3.5 a VirtualCenter 2.5 (převzato ze stránek výrobce):

Virtualization platform enhancements help deliver significant performance gains for the most memory and I/O intensive workloads:

  • Large memory pages for both ESX Server as well as guest operating systems improve memory processing for memory intensive workloads such as databases
  • Support for TCP Segmentation Offload and jumbo frames reduces the CPU overhead associated with processing network i/o, and benefits workloads such as Citrix and Windows Terminal Services
  • Support for paravirtualized Linux improves the performance of Linux workloads

VMware Storage VMotion enables live migration of virtual machine disks from one data storage system to another with little to no disruption or downtime. Administrators can dynamically balance storage workloads and address performance bottlenecks by migrating virtual machine disks to the best available storage resource, minimizing service disruptions.

VMware Update Manager automates patch and update management for VMware ESX Server hosts and virtual machines by tracking certain patch levels and manually applying the latest security/bug fixes. Patching of offline virtual machines enforces higher levels of patch standards compliance than physical environments. Integration with VMware Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS) enables zero-downtime VMware ESX Server host patching capabilities.

VMware Guided Consolidation, a feature of VMware VirtualCenter enables smaller companies to easily and quickly get started with server consolidation in a step-by-step tutorial fashion. A wizard discovers physical servers, identifies consolidation candidates, converts them to virtual machines, and intelligently places them onto the optimal VMware ESX Server or VMware Server hosts.

VMware Distributed Power Management is an experimental feature that reduces power consumption in the data center through intelligent workload balancing. Working in conjunction with VMware DRS, Distributed Power Management is designed to automatically power off servers not currently needed in order to meet service levels, and automatically power on servers as demand for compute resources increases.

attached.
For ‘/i‘ is for ‘install’, ‘/s’ is for ‘silent’, and ‘/p’ is for parameter (file)… 
 
These are the command line parameter to upgrade from OpsMgr 2007 RTM to SP1 RC. Users must upgrade the RMS first which will remotely upgrade the DB. When you upgrade the
