TechEd recap tonight at the Partner group meeting
TechEd recap. Me and Ed Roberts talked about TechEd topics, we then showed off Win2k8 R2 RC, handed out Win7 dvds, and showed the new backup features, Direct Access, Branch Cache and in general talked about HyperV, specing of Servers. A lot of show and tell tonight.
One of the things we were talking about that I couldn't get my head around is how to put the virtualization on a phyiscal server. In a traditional SBS 2003 box you'd stick your OS on few smaller drives and then have your larger drives (raid 5 or raid 10) doing the data drives. But in a virtualized HyperV base that you then put your SBS 2008 on, where should the separate "drives" go on that HyperV base? Should the virtualized C: boot partition go on the real C: of the HyperV base or should it be on the faster RAID for more disk I/O?
Lots of good discussions on how to setup and configure the system.
