Hyper-V Program Manager
Our documentation team has done a great job of putting together a detailed Windows Server 2008 R2: Hyper-V Component Architecture Poster. They were nice enough to give us on the development team some physical copies – but you can download the .PDF to create your own:
The poster provides details on the inner workings of things like:
any chance you can ask your friends in marketing where partners can get physical copies of these posters?
The downside of termination of the prinrted magazine - no access to the great posters.
This is amazing, seriously cool work. It explains everything so clearly. I'm gonig to Kinkos to get this printed.
Is there an error in the "MOVE" and "COPY" section of the poster?
"Moving a Virtual Machine: When you move an existing virtual machine, a new virtual machine ID is generated."
"Copying a Virtual Machine: When you copy a virtual machine or restore a backup copy of a virtual machine, the previous virtual machine ID is reused."
Isn't it the other way around? Or, am I just confused in the way it is worded?
Ryan Pertusio -
Ga! Yes, you are right. There is always a mistake somewhere on these posters - and you found it. Sigh...
This poster is no longer avaiable.
Yes - I reported the error to the creator of the poster, and I believe he may have been too zealous trying to get an updated version up. Hang tight - it should be back soon...
I hear there might be some printed posters at TechEd :)
Okay - the link is fixed now!
Seriously, this is so cool. I'm amazed at the work level that must have went into this. I can't believe its free. Did you do this Ben?
Best documentation I've seen on Hyper-V.
No - this was done by one of our technical writers - Martin McClean.
My wife sent this poster to her Grad Students on an example of how NOT to make a poster. LOL. This might be the most confusing stuff I have ever seen in my life.
? Given that the goal of this poster is to convey a large amount of technical information I do not understand your point. If it were meant for a different purpose (like advertising) then I would agree with you.
is there any chance that the Visio source of this behemoth is available somewhere?
