Virtualisation Virtualisation II


Michal Kwiatek (CERN)


One of the important benefits of virtualisation is the increased flexibility of hardware provisioning. Internet Services group provides the hardware and OS layers for services operated by different CERN organizational units. Within this framework, a user can ask for a new virtual server from a web browser and have it ready within 15 minutes. The latest release of the virtual infrastructure is based on Hyper-V, Microsoft Virtual Machine Manager, management SOAP web services and user web interface. This talk will present this approach and will discuss the evolution of the Microsoft Hypervisor from the perspective of both the end-user and the system administrator.
