Matt McSpirit's UK Virtualisation Channel, focussing on Microsoft, and related, Virtualisation Technologies.
In this video, we wrap up with a look at some of the 'under the cover' areas of RDS, particularly what's changed in RDP7, Group Policies around RDS, and also, the end user experience with different content types, like Windows Media files
In this video, we introduce a level of security into our small demo environment, in the form of the RDS Gateway. I install and configure the role service, and show how the user experience changes when the Gateway is protecting our infrastructure.
In the previous videos, the RDS Web Portal was connected directly to the RDS Session host, and displayed applications and sessions accordingly, however in this video, we introduce the RDS Connection Broker, which, as the name suggests, will broker the connections from end-users to their apps/sessions. This allows us to scale our solution, yet at the same time, the Session Broker also gives us new options around Virtual Desktops (which will be covered in later videos). This video specifically l...
In this video, we build on part 1, by introducing an alternative way to access the different RDS applications and sessions, through the Web Portal. We'll also take a look at some of the new functionality introduced in 2008 R2 such as User Assignment.
In this video, I walk through the initial installation and configuration of the RDS Session Host (traditional Terminal Server) in a Windows Server 2008 R2 environment. I enable the role, set up the initial bits, and then go on to show some of the different ways I can deploy RDS Applications, also know as RDS RemoteApp.
In the final part of this 4-part series, we take a look at some of the key capabilities of the NetApp storage backend, with which our Hyper-V cluster is integrated. We look at the space savings achieved when using Thin Provisioning, DeDuplication and we also take a look at SnapShots.
In the 3rd video, of this 4 part series, we validate, and build our Hyper-V R2 cluster, using the NetApp storage backend. We also create a few highly available Virtual Machines to run on our cluster.
In the second of this 4 part series, we set up and configure a NetApp storage backend, to be used with a Hyper-V R2 Cluster. We install and configure the system using NetApp System Manager, and walk through Volume and LUN creation, and more...
In this video, I'm joined by Steve Winfield and Pete Mason from NetApp, to discuss the value add that some of the NetApp storage technologies can bring to a Microsoft Hyper-V infrastructure. We explore the basics, but also look at some of the more advanced features like DeDupe and Thin Provisioning
