Microsoft Server 2012 R2 and Hyper-V and Virtual Machine Converter


The Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter


What is Microsoft Hyper-V?



Microsoft could not ignore the virtualization trend. Microsoft introduced Hyper-V as a virtualization platform in 2008, and it continued to release new Hyper-V versions with new Windows server versions. So far, there are a total of four versions, including Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2008.

Hyper-V Overview




Introduction to Hyper V




Since Hyper-V’s debut, it has always been a Windows Server feature, which could be installed whenever a server administrator decided to do so. It’s also available as a separate product called Microsoft Hyper-V Server. Basically, Microsoft Hyper-V Server is a standalone and shortened version of Windows Server where Microsoft cut out everything irrelevant to virtualization, services and Graphical User Interface (GUI) to make the server as small as possible. Plus, without the bells and whistles, the server requires less maintenance time and it is less vulnerable, because, for example, fewer components mean less patching.



What's New in Hyper V 2012 r2


Designing Hyper V the Right Way




Hyper-V is a hybrid hypervisor, which is installed from OS (via Windows wizard of adding roles). However, during installation it redesigns the OS architecture and becomes just like a next layer on the physical hardware (refer to pic.1).

Windows Server Hypervisor Achitecture



Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter

The Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter provides a Microsoft-supported, freely available, stand-alone solution for converting VMware-based virtual machines and virtual disks to Hyper-V-based virtual machines and virtual hard disks (VHDs)—including conversion from VMware to Hyper-V on Windows Server 2012. Because MVMC has a fully scriptable command-line interface (CLI), it integrates especially well with data center automation workflows such as those authored and run within Microsoft System Center 2012 - Orchestrator. It can also be invoked through Windows PowerShell.

MVMC simplifies low-cost, point-and-click migration of Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2003 R2 with SP2, and Windows Server 2003 with SP2 guest operating systems from VMware to Hyper-V.

Migrating to Hyper-V Using the Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter Tool 




In More Detail

The Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter:


  • Provides a quick, low-risk option for VMware customers to evaluate Hyper-V..
  • Converts VMware virtual machines to Hyper-V virtual machines: The VM Conversion will convert VMware-hosted virtual machines and ensure that the entire configuration, such as memory, virtual processor, and other machine configurations, is also migrated from the initial source. The tool also adds virtual NICs to the deployed virtual machine on Hyper-V.
  • Supports a clean migration to Hyper-V with uninstallation of VMware tools on the source virtual machine.
  • Provides a wizard-driven GUI, making it simple to perform virtual machine conversion.
  •  Installs integration services for Windows 2003 guests that are converted to Hyper-V virtual machines.
  • Supports conversion of virtual machines from VMware vSphere 4.1 and 5.0 hosts, including those hosted on a vSphere cluster, to Hyper-V. The tool also supports migration of virtual machines to a Hyper-V host that is part of a failover cluster.
    Note   MVMC also supports conversion of virtual machines from VMware vSphere 4.0 if the host is managed by vCenter 4.1 or vCenter 5.0. You have to connect to vCenter 4.1 or 5.0 through MVMC to convert virtual machines on vSphere 4.0.

  • Supports offline conversions of VMware-based virtual hard disks (VMDK) to a Hyper-V-based virtual hard disk file format (.vhd file).
  • Includes a fully scriptable command-line interface (CLI) for performing machine conversion and offline disk conversion, integrating with data center automation workflows such as those authored and executed within System Center 2012 - Orchestrator. The command line can also be invoked through Windows PowerShell.
This stand-alone tool has a low footprint, is easy to install, and is supported by Microsoft.

Convert virtual machines and disks from VMware hosts to Hyper-V hosts and Windows Azure or convert computers and disks to Hyper-V hosts. This page contains only setup files and a list of Windows PowerShell cmdlets that are related to MVMC. For a detailed document, see Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter 3.0 (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn873998.aspx) on Microsoft TechNet.  http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=42497

Data Deduplication in Virtualized Environments




Scaling MVMC: The Migration Automation Toolkit

The Migration Automation Toolkit (MAT) provides a powerful and scalable way for customers and partners to convert multiple VMware virtual machines simultaneously.  The MAT is a series of PowerShell scripts that take the powerful conversion engine of MVMC, and scale the solution to handle multiple migrations simultaneously, and in an automated fashion. The MAT can be run from a single coordinator machine, known as the ‘Control Server’ which orchestrates the multiple ongoing conversions. For even greater scale you can use multiple ‘Helper Nodes’ each running MVMC and managed by the ‘Control Server’. The ‘Helper Nodes’ can run within VMs themselves.

As the Migration Automation Toolkit is built using PowerShell, it can be modified and improved by the community. The download comes complete with documentation and guidance on how to use the MAT, along with the pre-requisites required for it to function correctly.


Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter Plug-in for VMware vSphere Client

The MVMC Plug-in for VMware vSphere Client:

  • Extends the vSphere Client context menu to make it easier to convert the VMware-based virtual machine to a Hyper-V-based virtual machine.
  • Is built upon the Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter.
Note This plug-in extends vSphere Client to facilitate conversions from a virtual machine context menu and without changing configurations on the VMware host. This plug-in cannot be used with the MVMC Automation Toolkit.

Red Hat Satellite

The easiest way to manage Red Hat Enterprise Linux, keeping your systems running efficiently, properly secured, and compliant with various standards.



Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform

Secure, scalable platform for building public and private clouds.
















Moving from monolithic apps to microservices

The industry is moving beyond self-contained, isolated, and monolithic apps. New workloads will be part of a connected application fabric—flexibly woven together to serve particular business needs, yet easily torn apart and recomposed.


What are containers?

Linux® containers keep applications and their runtime components together by combining lightweight application isolation with an image-based deployment method. Containers introduce autonomy for applications by packaging apps with the libraries and other binaries on which they depend. This avoids conflicts between apps that otherwise rely on key components of the underlying host operating system. Containers do not contain a(n) (OS) kernel, which makes them faster and more agile than virtual machines. However, it does mean that all containers on a host must use the same kernel.





Standardize the components, reap the benefits

Shipping companies can easily exchange containers—whether they transport by boat, rail, or truck—because the container dimensions comply with international standards. Similar standards need to be established for software containers and their applications.



Advancing containers the open source way

There are still many questions to be answered before containers can be considered enterprise-ready. We're working to advance both container technology and the ecosystem that supports it to make it ready for the enterprise, as we did with Linux.



Today, Red Hat is concentrating on:


  • Container portability with deployment across physical hardware, hypervisors, private clouds, and public clouds
  • An integrated application delivery platform that spans from app container to deployment target—all built on open standards
  • Trusted access to digitally signed container images that are safe to use and have been verified to work on certified container hosts


The microservices approach...dictates that instead of having one giant code base that all developers touch...there are numerous smaller code bases managed by small and agile teams...
This is better for continuous delivery as small units are easier to manage, test and deploy.



The future is open

In this 22-minute keynote, Red Hat President of Products and Technologies Paul Cormier talks about the importance of open source, Linux, and containers in the IT industry.




Cloud is here. Deploy it today. Or prepare for tomorrow.

IBM New Mainframe System z13 and z-Linux

IBM's new mainframe provides unprecedented new capabilities, including: 


ibmsystemz on livestream.com. Broadcast Live Free



z13 is the first system able to process 2.5 billion transactions a day - equivalent of 100 Cyber Mondays every day of the year.  z13 transactions are persistent, protected and auditable from end-to-end, adding assurance as mobile transactions grow -- estimated to grow to 40 trillion mobile transactions per day by 2025. [1]



z13 is the first system to make practical real-time encryption of all mobile transactions at any scale.  z13 speeds real-time encryption of mobile transactions to help protect the transaction data and ensure response times consistent with a positive customer experience.  The system includes 500 new patents including cryptographic encryption technologies that enable more security features for mobile initiated transactions.



z13 is the first mainframe system with embedded analytics providing real-time insights on all transactions. This capability can help guarantee the ability of the client to run real-time fraud detection on 100 percent of their business transactions [2]
The rapid growth of mobile applications has created consumers who expect mobile transactions to be fast and seamless – regardless of which mobile payment platform, retailer, or financial organization is providing the service. As a result, businesses are being forced to evaluate whether their IT infrastructures can support mobile applications that meet and exceed these consumer expectations -- or face the potential of losing clients to competing businesses.

 “Every time a consumer makes a purchase or hits refresh on a smart phone, it can create a cascade of events on the back end of the computing environment. The z13 is designed to handle billions of transactions for the mobile economy.  Only the IBM mainframe can put the power of the world's most secure datacenters in the palm of your hand," said Tom Rosamilia, senior vice president, IBM Systems. "Consumers expect fast, easy and secure mobile transactions. The implication for business is the creation of a secure, high performance infrastructure with sophisticated analytics."




z13 Helps with Secure, Trusted Mobile Transactions

As mobile adoption grows, consumers are driving exponentially larger numbers of mobile transactions. Each of these mobile transactions triggers a cascade of events across computing systems. These events include comparisons to past purchases, data encryption and decryption, bank-to-bank reconciliations, and customer loyalty discounts. This cascade of events causes a so-called “starburst effect” – where a single transaction can trigger as few as four or as many as 100 additional system interactions.

Consequently, the starburst effect can create security vulnerabilities at each interaction point. In fact, 71 percent of CIOs and IT managers surveyed by IBM indicated that security is their most significant mobile enterprise challenge. [3] With data and transactions under constant threat from multiple points of attack, consumers want to know that their mobile transactions are as secure as financial data held by banks.



When combined with IBM MobileFirst solutions, the z13 delivers enhanced performance, availability, analytics and security that will drive optimal mobile user experiences.  IBM MobileFirst Platform enables organizations to deliver better, more secure apps. IBM MobileFirst Protect delivers seamless security and end-to-end management of clients' infrastructure and all its devices, apps, content and transactions.






Providing Insight with Every Transaction


The z13 features the world’s fastest microprocessor, 2X faster than the most common server processors, 300 percent more memory, 100 percent more bandwidth and vector processing analytics to speed mobile transactions. As a result, the z13 transaction engine is capable of analyzing transactions in “real time” and will be able to help prevent fraud as it is occurring, allowing financial institutions to halt the transaction before the consumer is impacted. IBM has designed the z13 to integrate real-time scoring and guarantees this capability as a feature of the system. This scoring can be used for fraud detection on 100 percent of a client's business transactions. [4]

In addition to assistance with fraud prevention, businesses looking to enhance their customer loyalty programs will be able to use new z13 capabilities to add more personalization by gaining a real-time view of a client's purchasing habits to offer up-sell and cross-sell promotions before they leave the store -- and in some cases before they even enter.
Businesses today don’t have the ability to analyze 100 percent of a consumer's transaction. With the z13, businesses will be able to use IBM's predictive analytics modeling technology, SPSS, and personalize the transaction as it occurs.
The z13 includes new support for Hadoop, enabling unstructured data to be analyzed in the system. Other analytics advances include faster acceleration of queries by adding DB2 BLU for Linux providing an in-memory database, enhancements to the IBM DB2 analytics accelerator, and vastly improved performance for mathematically intense analytics workloads.

The z13 is the ideal private or hybrid cloud architecture, legendary for its ability to scale and reliably and securely handle multiple workloads. In a scale-out model, it is capable of running up to 8,000 virtual servers -- more than 50 virtual servers per core, helping to lower software, energy and facilities costs.
The z13 lowers the cost of running cloud. For compared environments, it is estimated that a z Systems cloud on a z13 will have a 32 percent lower total cost of ownership over three years than an x86 cloud and a 60 percent lower total cost of ownership over three years than a public cloud. [5] Additionally, the z13 is based on open standards, fully supporting Linux and OpenStack.

As part of today’s announcement, IBM will also unveil a preview of new z/OS software that delivers advanced analytic and data serving capabilities.  When available, this new operating system will expand the ability of z13 to process in-memory analytics and provide analysis on mobile transactions, helping clients to further extend mainframe enterprise applications to the mobile user.

This launch complements IBM's ongoing investments to help clients drive mobile innovation across the enterprise. IBM’s 6,000 mobile specialists have been at the forefront of mobile enterprise innovation. IBM has secured more than 4,300 patents in mobile, social and security, which have been incorporated into IBM MobileFirst solutions that enable enterprise clients to streamline and accelerate mobile adoption, helping enterprises embrace mobile from the ground up.
IBM Global Financing offerings for the new model z13 include customized Fair Market Value leases with payment deferrals for credit qualified customers that want to upgrade from older models to z13, convert an owned z system to leasing while upgrading, or acquire a net new z13.

We can bring the analytics to the data

Analytics is all about getting more value out of our data. Given that almost 55% of world’s commercial transactions run through z Systems and upwards of 70% of all commercial data originates there, it’s easy to see why running transactional analytics within the same system makes sense.



It makes more sense than the cost and time spent moving data off-system, managing multiple copies, protecting data across the network and not knowing if insights are correct. Using z Systems' capabilities, tools and innovation to keep and manage our data on a single platform that supports the full analytics lifecycle, we slash storage costs, reduce complexity and focus on operational efficiency, improving sales and customer satisfaction.

In-transaction analytics = competitive advantage

An integrated transaction analysis program like z Systems merges the systems of record and systems of engagement, delivering right-time insights at the point of impact. We can instantly analyze 100% of our transactions for revenue boosts from cross-sells or up-sells—and by personalizing communication and offers, through engagement analytics, we can lift annual customer value up to 7.6% or more.



In-transaction fraud prevention helps keep our business safe while protecting our clients and their information. And we can reduce ETL costs by up to 10 million over four years by keeping our data on a single platform. We gain customer advantage and trust, save money and move at the speed of business. It’s all win.

Why Analyse just a fraction of our transactions?

The key pieces of insight are already trapped inside our data like needles in a haystack. But if we analyze only a small percentage of our business transactions, that potential value remains largely untapped, and we lose an extraordinary opportunity.



If we analyze more types of data together in context, we get greater insights, make better decisions and create more targeted messaging. Looking from the customer perspective, the more highly relevant and contextual offers we present to them, the more brand loyalty and business we build.

Integration improves our data literacy

Integration on z Systems helps our Big Data & Analytics solutions to work at optimal levels, giving us insight into our customers, markets, products, regulations, competitors, suppliers, employees and more. And with a flexible analytic structure, we can get more knowledgeable in finding, manipulating and interpreting data.

We know right now where everyone and everything is. All of which improves our decision-making and helps us create new revenue streams and build better business outcomes.
