Dell Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V Reference Architecture

Cover

Customers are faced with many choices when planning a virtualisation deployment. Server, storage, and software configurations can vary depending on workload and feature requirements. This paper proposes several sample virtualisation architectures based on Dell's server and storage products. Architectures are divided into three main categories: Small, Medium, and Large. These categories are based on the features and capacity of each product, as well as the complexity of the overall architecture.

  • Small - Designed with simplicity in mind and focuses on providing basic functionality with minimal hardware. It does not enable advanced virtualisation
  • Medium -Designed to meet the production requirements of small and medium businesses by providing economical Storage Area Network (SAN) solutions, enhanced virtualisation features, and business continuity options.
  • Large - A full-featured virtualisation solution supporting 1-to-many management, high availability (HA) and enterprise-class server and storage products.

The goals of this white paper are as follows:

  • Introduce customers to the Dell sample reference architectures for Hyper-V.
  • Clarify, aid, and simplify the decision making process for customers.
