Virtualization Management – Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) 2008, Part 1 of 2


It’s Day 2 of Tech-Ed 2008, and my first session of the day is VIR253, Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 Overview, Part 1 of 2. Part 2 will be later this morning. I’ve got a seat right by the doors to the breakout session, so I’m hoping that the wireless LAN will hold out for liveblogging the session.

I’ve actually been here at the conference center since 7:00 AM this morning; I spent some time in the Hands-On Labs this morning going through Hyper-V setup, configuration, Authorization Manager, etc. Useful stuff; I’ll blog more on that later.

The presenter, Edwin Yuen, starts with defining virtualization as the "isolation of one computing resource from the other." This is a good generic definition and allows us to view virtualization as more than just server virtualization. It allows us to extend the idea of virtualization to things like VPNs (which I’ve long described as a form of network virtualization), virtual storage, virtual presentation (think Terminal Services). While virtualization creates flexibility, it can also create issues. Edwin states that "Virtual machines are machines first, virtual second." That’s an important point to remember-while virtual machines can be very useful and extremely flexible, they are still machines that must be managed, monitored, and supported.
