  • Designing the building blocks for a Windows Server 8 cloud

    by Yigal Edery and Ross Ortega

    When building servers, networks and storage for cloud scale data centers, many complex tradeoffs and technologies must be considered. These tradeoffs include performance, reliability, security, flexible virtual machine deployment, storage architecture selection and interoperability with the existing architecture. Each choice influences the other considerations. This session presents a few canonical architectures that highlight interesting tradeoffs for the design of servers and systems focused on cloud deployments.

  • Building secure, scalable multi-tenant clouds using Hyper-V Network Virtualization

    by Yu-Shun Wang and Murari Sridharan

    'Any service at any server in any cloud.' Next generation data centers should allow dynamic resource allocation and consolidation across large resource pools. The topological constrains of today’s data center networks limit how services can be assigned to servers. Windows Server 8 enables you to create an agile, multi-tenant cloud on top of your existing infrastructure by virtualizing the network. Network virtualization decouples server configuration from network configuration to provide a virtual dedicated network to each tenant. This allows seamless migration of workloads, while continuing to provide security isolation between tenants. Partners have the opportunity to become multi-tenancy aware and provide the next generation of services, devices, appliances, both physical and virtual, to augment and complete the Windows offering to build secure, scalable, multi-tenant public and private clouds.

  • Enabling multi-tenancy and converged fabric for the cloud using QoS

    by Richard Wurdack and Charley Wen

    Converged fabric and multi-tenancy pose new challenges in the data center where businesses are required to provide predictable network performance and SLAs. Today, a common solution is costly hardware overprovisioning and complex wiring. In this session, we will describe how Windows Server 8 enables data centers to use QoS and DCB-capable hardware to guarantee network bandwidth to a service. Because Windows Server 8 provides predictable network performance in a converged fabric environment, businesses will be able to virtualize and consolidate network I/O intensive workloads on a single 10GbE NIC thereby reducing costs and improving service. Partners, through familiar PowerShell and WMI interfaces, will be able to integrate these QoS features to provide a better service on Windows Server 8.

  • Network acceleration and other NIC technologies for the data center

    by Michael Nanakul and Don Stanwyck

    Clouds place new demands on performance and scalability. Partners can build cloud-scale infrastructure with Windows Server 8. In this session, we will cover several new technologies that make it possible for platform and hardware partners to provide performant and cost-effective cloud scale solutions.

  • Build data-driven collection and list apps using ListView in HTML5

    by James Clarke and Sam Spencer

    Discover how to build on basic collections and lists by bringing live data from cloud and local sources into your app, and use the ListView control to present your data in an engaging and interactive way. Use templating and data binding features, create custom adapters to interface with your data sources, and handle virtualization, grouping, editing and change notifications to create a seamless app experience.
