#Microsoft #Linux Integration Services Version 4.0.11 for #HyperV #FreeBSD


Current version: 4.0.11 Please refer to the Linux Virtual Machines on Hyper-V topics for up to date information on the LIS feature set, all supported Linux distributions, availability and download locations.

When installed in a supported Linux virtual machine running on Hyper-V, the Linux Integration Services provide:

•Driver support: Linux Integration Services supports the network controller and the IDE and SCSI storage controllers that were developed specifically for Hyper-V.

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

•Time Keeping: The clock inside the virtual machine will remain accurate by synchronizing to the clock on the virtualization server via Timesync service, and with the help of the pluggable time source device.

•Integrated Shutdown: Virtual machines running Linux can be shut down from either Hyper-V Manager or System Center Virtual Machine Manager by using the “Shut down” command.

•Symmetric Multi-Processing (SMP) Support: Supported Linux distributions can use multiple virtual processors per virtual machine. The actual number of virtual processors that can be allocated to a virtual machine is only limited by the underlying hypervisor.

•Heartbeat: This feature allows the virtualization server to detect whether the virtual machine is running and responsive.

•KVP (Key Value Pair) Exchange: Information about the running Linux virtual machine can be obtained by using the Key Value Pair exchange functionality on the Windows Server 2008 virtualization server.

•Integrated Mouse Support: Linux Integration Services provides full mouse support for Linux guest virtual machines.

•Live Migration: Linux virtual machines can undergo live migration for load balancing purposes.

•Jumbo Frames: Linux virtual machines can be configured to use Ethernet frames with more than 1500 bytes of payload.

•VLAN tagging and trunking: Administrators can attach single or multiple VLAN ids to synthetic network adapters.

•Static IP Injection: Allows migration of Linux virtual machines with static IP addresses.

•Linux VHDX resize: Allows dynamic resizing of VHDX storage attached to a Linux virtual machine.

•Synthetic Fibre Channel Support: Linux virtual machines can natively access high performance SAN networks.

•Live Linux virtual machine backup support: Facilitates zero downtime backup of running Linux virtual machines.

•Dynamic memory ballooning support: Improves Linux virtual machine density for a given Hyper-V host.

•Synthetic video device support: Provides improved graphics performance for Linux virtual machines.

•PAE kernel support: Provides drivers that are compatible with PAE enabled Linux virtual machines.

#Microsoft Windows Containers Overview #Hyperv #Azure #Winserv


Windows containers provide operating system level virtualization that allow you to run multiple isolated applications on one container host.

Here you find the Microsoft MSDN website about Windows Containers

Quick Start: Windows Server Containers and PowerShell

This article will walk through the fundamentals of managing Windows Server Containers with PowerShell. Items covered will include creating Windows Server Containers and Windows Server Container Images, removing Windows Server Containers and Container Images and finally deploying an application into a Windows Server Container. The lessons learned in this walkthrough should enable you to begin exploring deployment and management of Windows Server Containers using PowerShell.

Software Defined Networking #SDN with Windows Server 2016 and #SCVMM 2016 TP3


This topic helps you evaluate the Software Defined Networking (SDN) features in Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview and Virtual Machine Manager 2016 Technology Preview 3. In particular, this topic is focused on scenarios that incorporate VMM with the Microsoft Network Controller, a new feature in Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview. For more information about the Microsoft Network Controller, see Network Controller.

You can also deploy an SDN infrastructure using scripts. For more information, see Deploy Software Defined Networks using scripts.

Here you can read more about how to deploy SDN with Windows Server 2016 and SCVMM 2016 TP3
