otherwise specified keep all your answers below 100 words. Use your own words in the
answers – don’t copy information ve
atim from the Internet!
1. Briefly explain what is meant by the following terms:

that determine how many processors are needed on a server running virtualisation software,
such as Microsoft Hyper-V.
11. When I am planning my network architecture for virtualisation, ,
iefly describe at least two
factors that determine how many network cards (NICs) and what bandwidth are needed on a
server running virtualisation software, such as Microsoft Hyper-V.
12. When setting up and installing Microsoft Hyper V, how do I determine what server hardware is
compatible with the software I want to install, i.e. what vendor resource would I consult to
answer this question?
13. Briefly describe the three types of virtual switches supported in Microsoft Hyper V.
14. Briefly describe the purpose of checkpointing in Microsoft Hyper V.
15. Briefly describe the following features as they apply to server CPUs
a. Single processor
. Multi-processo
16. You have been asked to research and analyse alternative virtualisations scenarios for a
company called DEF Corporation. The company wants to vritualise its existing servers, which
are cu
ently running operating systems such as Windows 2012 and Ubuntu Linux. Complete
the table below for comparing the virtualisation alternatives of Microsoft Hyper-V with Citrix
Xenserver 6.2. You should also note any risks associated with running either of the alternative
virtualization solutions, such as support a
angements, and finding skills in the product.
Option Hyper-V Xenserver
Support for Windows 2012 guests
Support for Ubuntu guests
Licensing costs (e.g. commercial or free)

Assessment 2: Case Study

Information for students
This is a project
eport assessment task. You have the option of doing the task as a group (3
students maximum per group). You should use the Case Study Report Template (see Learner
Resources for the unit) to help you structure your assignment. Write your report, making sure to list
all the students who are in your group in the Introduction to the report. All students need to hand in a
copy of the report as part of their assessment submission.

For this assessment task, you need to prepare a report that outlines a server virtualisation plan,
designs a virtual server specification and describes how a virtual server will be installed and tested,
for a college called ABC College. ABC cu
ently has 20 physical servers, with different Operating
System, CPU utlilisation, RAM utilisation and application software requirements (see ABC College
Hardware and Software inventory below).

ABC Hardware and Software Inventory .

ABC College is cu
ently running physical servers with the following characteristics:

Operating System Number of
CPU Utilisation (Ave.) Memory Utilisation
Amount of disk
space used
Windows 2012
4 5 50 4TB
Windows 2008

ABC College has an organisational policy prefe
ing a fully virtualised solution, so is looking for a
solution that will enable it to virtualise all its existing servers. ABC College has already done some
feasibility study of how it could virtualise all its cu
ent servers that has confirmed this should be
possible. ABC College also and has an organisational preference for Microsoft solutions.

That initial feasibility report on server virtualisation has noted the following points

• Any virtualization cluster should not have a single point of failure i.e. the cluster should have a
minimum of two nodes,
• A preference for a Hyper-V solution
• Data can be migrated between physical and virtual servers of the same type by using the
company’s backup software to backup files from the physical machine and restore them on a
new virtual machine

Your report is being prepared for Ms. Johnson, the IT Manager at ABC College.

Your report should include the following parts (see the ICTSUS501 Case Study Report Template) in
Learner Resources for this subject.

Virtualization is defined as the central empowering innovation of the Scalable Enterprise. Various patterns in virtualization are continually evolving. As the innovation develops as well as progresses are made, more choices open to directors and that's just the beginning cost saving virtualization project that can be executed. The principle motivation behind utilizing virtualization innovation is to solidify workloads with the goal that physical machine which could be multiplexed for a wide range of clients. This can enhance the proficiency of a server room by enabling maximum work which needs to be completed on small physical hubs, and also it can enhance the per-server vitality proficiency in light of the fact that ideal servers can have a lot of energy. In this paper, we mainly concentrate on the virtualization of server, and the proposed model can assist us for the encryption as well as can store all its VM in a reasonable storage area. Virtual server is the consistent portrayal of physical server in programming. According to given scenario, ABC possess 20 physical servers, with various Operating System, CPU utilization, RAM use and application programming prerequisites. In this report, we will make a proposal for server virtualization process for ABC College and is meant for Mr. Johnson, who is IT manager at ABC College. (Sarddar, D. & Bose, R., 2014).
Plan Server Virtualization
Hypervisor innovation is the software where various virtual machines may possibly run using hypervisor layer and by controlling hardware as well as distributing assets to every VM OS. We have chosen Hyper-V as the virtualization solution for virtual servers because of its less cost, easy backup facility, comprehensive security etc. (Collins, T., 2016).
    Solution Component
    Indicative cost
    Windows Datacenter licenses + 2 years SA
    Virtualization Mgmt SW
    Incremental Cost of Microsoft Premier Support
    $26,040. (Dani, C., 2012).
Design Virtual Server Specification
So as to run Hyper-V, we require servers with 64-bit CPUs that have either Intel-VT or AMD-V hardware innovations that can enhance the performance of virtualization and can have better application response times which is accessible as well as empowered. The main necessities that the framework should meet will contingent upon the number as well as guest operating system. For instance, to run various virtual machines simultaneously, the physical PC must have at any rate enough memory to cover the prerequisites of the host OS and every guest OS. We should allude to the framework necessities to guarantee that the framework assets will support its deployment.
In order to store virtual machines and utilize high-accessibility highlights or VMotion, we require some centralized storage which is associated with every single virtual server and, similarly essential, storage that is perfect with the separate virtualization platform. A strong network system will be required with Gigabit Ethernet which is associated with all servers that enables us to move VMs that are virtualized and in addition can...
