Microsoft Virtual Academy: Configure & Deploy Infrastructure Components with System Center 2012 SP1 - Part 2 - Storage


About This Video:

In this module you will learn how System Center 2012 Service Pack 1 (SP1) has been enhanced to support Windows Server 2012 and SQL Server 2012 through simplified configuration and deployment of the cloud infrastructure components. You will see a broad range of improvements to the servers and cluster as well as storage and networking to provide standardized services, delegated capacity, and cloud abstraction across a diverse infrastructure. 

First you will find out how System Center supports bare-metal deployments of all resources including Hyper-V hosts which uses deep discovery from the hardware manufacturer to configure additional settings. Next you will see how to optimize your storage infrastructure through expanded SMI-S support and better traffic management. 

You will then hear about how the abstraction of the network infrastructure can provide multi-tenancy and isolation in the private cloud to support Software Defined Networking (SDN) that allows you to create virtual networks that span physical networks. Finally you will learn about failover cluster deployment enhancements with storage and networking.
