CentOS now have official support as guest VM in Hyper-V

May 18, 2011 2 comments

Effective immediately, Microsoft will support Windows Server2008 R2 Hyper-V to run CentOS.  

CentOS is a popular Linux distribution for Hosters, and this was the number one requirement for interoperability that we heard from that community.

This development will enable MS Hosting partners to consolidate their mixed Windows + Linux infrastructure on Windows Server Hyper-V; reducing cost and complexity, while betting on an enterprise class virtualization platform. .

How will support work?
Call Microsoft CSS. Support will cover installation issues as well as configuration issues.

What version of the Linux Integration Services support CentOS?

 The existing Hyper-V Linux Integration Services for Linux Version 2.1 support CentOS. The following features are included in the Hyper-V Linux Integration Services 2.1 release:

· Symmetric Multi-Processing (SMP) Support: Supported Linux distributions can use up to 4 virtual processors (VP) per virtual machine.

· Driver support for synthetic devices: Linux Integration Services supports the synthetic network controller and the synthetic storage controller that were developed specifically for Hyper-V.

· Fastpath Boot Support for Hyper-V: Boot devices take advantage of the block Virtualization Service Client (VSC) to provide enhanced performance.

· Timesync: The clock inside the virtual machine will remain synchronized with the clock on the host.

· Integrated Shutdown: Virtual machines running Linux can be gracefully shut down from either Hyper-V Manager or System Center Virtual Machine Manager.

· Heartbeat: Allows the host to detect whether the guest is running and responsive.

· Pluggable Time Source: A pluggable clock source module is included to provide a more accurate time source to the guest.

The Linux Integration Services are available via the Microsoft Download Center here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=eee39325-898b-4522-9b4c-f4b5b9b64551

 From Wikipedia:

CentOS is a community-supported, mainly free software operating system based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). It exists to provide a free enterprise class computing platform and strives to maintain 100% binary compatibility with its upstream distribution. CentOS stands for Community ENTerprise Operating System.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux is available only through a paid subscription service that provides access to software updates and varying levels of technical support. The product is largely composed of software packages distributed under either an open source or a free software license and the source code for these packages is made public by Red Hat.

CentOS developers use Red Hat’s source code to create a final product very similar to Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Red Hat’s branding and logos are changed because Red Hat does not allow them to be redistributed.

CentOS is available free of charge. Technical support is primarily provided by the community via official mailing lists, web forums, and chat rooms. The project is not affiliated with Red Hat and thus receives no financial or logistical support from the company; instead, the CentOS Project relies on donations from users and organizational sponsors.

As many are requesting the links to download the Microsoft Hyper-V Cloud Deployment guides.

Building Private Clouds With Hyper-V Cloud and the Windows Server Platform

Windows Server 2008 R2, Microsoft’s server platform, already delivers comprehensive virtualization and management capabilities through Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V. These technologies, along with Microsoft System Center, provide the components organizations need to implement private clouds. With the new Hyper-V Cloud Fast Track program, Microsoft and its partners will deliver a broad choice of predefined, validated configurations for private cloud deployments, comprising compute, storage, networking resources, virtualization and management software. These programs and offerings help reduce the risk and increase the speed of private cloud deployments.

Private Cloud Solutions : Hyper-V Cloud Deployment Guides

November 18, 2010 4 comments

Private cloud is the implementation of cloud services on resources that are dedicated to your organization, whether they exist on-premises or off-premises with the benefits of public cloud computing—including self-service, scalability, and elasticity and the additional control and customization.

Build your own private cloud and you will have a dynamic, virtualized infrastructure with advantages including:

  • Pools of compute resources
  • Automated management
  • High-availability
  • Scale-out capabilities
  • Multi-tenancy
  • Self-service provisioning
