What are the options for OpenStack-supported hypervisors?

while retaining control over their own infrastructure and data. Cloud frameworks don’t provide the underlying virtualization for an enterprise private cloud, making it critical that a cloud framework support as many major hypervisors as possible. There is a wide range of OpenStack-supported hypervisors, and you should carefully consider the level of support each provides and how that matches your particular needs.

Together, VMware and Microsoft currently hold the majority of the hypervisor marketplace. Microsoft Hyper-V can run Windows, Linux and FreeBSD VMs under OpenStack, while VMware vSphere 5.1.0 and later will support VMware-based Linux and Windows images through vCenter Server. XenServer and Xen Cloud Platform can run Linux or Windows VMs, though the Nova compute service must be installed in a paravirtualized VM. Even OpenStack Nova compute supports the native Ironic bare-metal hypervisor for machine provisioning and control.

Use libvirt with Linux-based hypervisors

It’s important to remember that all hypervisors aren’t created equal.

Many OpenStack-supported hypervisors are Linux-based but will typically require the libvirt open API for virtualization and management. For example, libvirt will allow Kernel-based Virtual Machine under OpenStack, and KVM versions are available to run PowerPC and Power Architecture processors, IBM System/390 mainframes and more conventional x86 processor architectures. The Xen Project hypervisor will run under libvirt to support Linux, Windows, FreeBSD and NetBSD VMs under OpenStack Nova. Libvirt supports Virtuozzo 7.0.0 and later for containers and VMs based on KVM.

Generally, OpenStack will also use libvirt to support Linux Containers, Quick EMUlator and User-mode Linux, though these platforms are rarely used outside of legacy application maintenance.

It’s important to remember that all hypervisors aren’t created equal, and OpenStack-supported hypervisors might not receive the same level of support, stability, performance or interoperability. Private cloud adopters should invest time into performing due diligence tests and experiments to verify the compatibility between the chosen hypervisor and cloud framework to ensure adequate results for the needs of the specific enterprise.

to a multinational organization, the complexities of managing the data generated by a global workforce can vex even the most adept Office 365 administrator.

When the admin creates the Office 365 tenant, the Exchange Online mailboxes reside in a specific geographic region determined by the organization’s billing address. The mailboxes may be replicated to different data centers within that geographic region. To meet data residency requirements, organizations can create multiple Office 365 tenancies in different geographic regions, but this increases overall administrative complexity.

To address these Office 365 data residency needs and streamline how businesses handle them, Microsoft designed what it calls multi-geo capabilities. With multi-geo, organizations that use Exchange Online can store a mailbox in one of multiple geographic regions within a single Office 365 tenancy.

Here is some information on the multi-geo feature and its configuration for Office 365 data residency.

Multi-geo comes with restrictions

As of publication, the multi-geo feature is in a selective preview stage for Exchange Online and OneDrive for Business. Microsoft plans to release it into general availability for those services in the first half of 2018. The company intends to add multi-geo to SharePoint Online with a preview expected in the first half of 2018. Microsoft said it might add this capability to other Office 365 apps, such as Microsoft Teams, but it has not given any timelines.

However, the multi-geo service comes with restrictions. For example, the India and South Korea geographic regions are only available to organizations with licenses and billing addresses there. Other regions, such as France, are not yet available.

Microsoft recommends an organization with questions about the multi-geo feature talk to its Microsoft account team. The company has yet to unveil licensing details for the service.

Multi-geo introduces new terminology

Home geo is the term Microsoft uses for the geographic region where the Office 365 tenancy was created. Regions that the organization adds later are known as satellite geos. The multi-geo feature provisions new mailboxes in the home geo by default, but admins can start them in a satellite geo.

The organization can move existing mailboxes between home and satellite geos. This operation should not adversely affect workers because the mailboxes will remain in the same Office 365 tenancy, and the Autodiscover service automatically locates the user’s mailbox in the background. However, Microsoft said the multi-geo service does not support Exchange public folders, which must reside in the home geo.

Organizations should monitor the Microsoft Office 365 roadmap for changes in support of the multi-geo service.

PowerShell cmdlets adjust regions

In organizations where directory synchronization hasn’t been deployed, administrators can use two PowerShell cmdlets to set configuration parameters for the multi-geo feature.

Admins can use the Set-MsolCompanyAllowedDataLocation cmdlet from the Azure Active Directory (AD) PowerShell module to set up the additional geographic regions in the Office 365 tenant.

The Set-MsolUser cmdlet features a PreferredDataLocation parameter to specify the geographic region that will store the user’s Exchange Online mailbox and OneDrive for Business files. A user account can only have one PreferredDataLocation for those services.

Considerations with directory synchronization

Businesses that have deployed directory synchronization and run a hybrid configuration of Exchange, where some mailboxes are stored on premises and others in Exchange Online, need a new version of Azure AD Connect to support the multi-geo feature. Azure AD Connect synchronizes an on-premises AD user account custom attribute into the PreferredDataLocation attribute in Azure AD.

The admin sets up the geographic region of the user’s Exchange Online mailbox with the AD on-premises custom attribute. After the value is synchronized with Azure AD, Exchange Online uses that setting to place the mailbox in the proper region. This enables admins to adjust settings in on-premises AD accounts to control the geographical region of Exchange Online mailboxes.

Wanted – Microsoft Surface Pro 2 (or good 1)

It has been a while since I last used it but I’ll dig it out and check, there wasn’t any real damage the last time I had it out. I’m afraid I don’t know about the battery since it has been a number of months since it was last used (although fully charged before it was put away), it didn’t get a lot of use over the years since I purchased it.

Yes, will include the stylus.

Edit – Will try to take some photos tomorrow evening after work

What’s new in Hyper-V for Windows 10 Fall Creators Update?

Windows 10 Fall Creators Update has arrived!  While we’ve been blogging about new features as they appear in Windows Insider builds, many of you have asked for a consolidated list of Hyper-V updates and improvements since Creators Update in April.

Summary:

  • Quick Create includes a gallery (and you can add your own images)
  • Hyper-V has a Default Switch for easy networking
  • It’s easy to revert virtual machines to their start state
  • Host battery state is visible in virtual machines
  • Virtual machines are easier to share

Quick Create virtual machine gallery

The virtual machine gallery in Quick Create makes it easy to find virtual machine images in one convenient location.

image

You can also add your own virtual machine images to the Quick Create gallery.  Building a custom gallery takes some time but, once built, makes creating virtual machines easy and consistent.

This blog post walks through adding custom images to the gallery.

For images that aren’t in the gallery, select “Local Installation Source” to create a virtual machine from an .iso or vhd located somewhere in your file system.

Keep in mind, while Quick Create and the virtual machine gallery are convenient, they are not a replacement for the New Virtual Machine wizard in Hyper-V manager.  For more complicated virtual machine configuration, use that.

Default Switch

The switch named “Default Switch” allows virtual machines to share the host’s network connection using NAT (Network Address Translation).  This switch has a few unique attributes:

  1. Virtual machines connected to it will have access to the host’s network whether you’re connected to WIFI, a dock, or Ethernet. It will also work when the host is using VPN
    or proxy.
  2. It’s available as soon as you enable Hyper-V – you won’t lose internet setting it up.
  3. You can’t delete or rename it.
  4. It has the same name and device ID on all Windows 10 Fall Creator’s Update Hyper-V hosts.
    Name: Default Switch
    ID: c08cb7b8-9b3c-408e-8e30-5e16a3aeb444

Yes, the default switch does automatically assign an IP to the virtual machine (DNS and DHCP).

I’m really excited to have a always-available network connection for virtual machines on Hyper-V.  The Default Switch offers the best networking experience for virtual machines on a laptop.  If you need highly customized networking, however, continue using Virtual Switch Manager.

Revert! (automatic checkpoints)

This is my personal favorite feature from Fall Creators Update.

For a little bit of background, I mostly use virtual machines to build/run demos and to sandbox simple experiments.  At least once a month, I accidently mess up my virtual machine.  Sometimes I remember to make a checkpoint and I can roll back to a good state.  Most of the time I don’t.  Before automatic checkpoints, I’d have to choose between rebuilding my virtual machine or manually undoing my mistake.

Starting in Fall Creators Update, Hyper-V creates a checkpoint when you start virtual machines.  Say you’re learning about Linux and accidently `rm –rf /*` or update your guest and discover a breaking change, now you can simply revert back to when the virtual machine started.

image

Automatic checkpoints are enabled by default on Windows 10 and disabled by default on Windows Server.  They are not useful for everyone.  For people with automation or for those of you worried about the overhead of making a checkpoint, you can disable automatic checkpoints with PowerShell (Set-VM –Name VMwithAutomation –AutomaticCheckpointsEnabled) or in VM settings under “Checkpoints”.

Here’s a link to the original announcement with more information.

Battery pass-through

Virtual machines in Fall Creators Update are aware of the hosts battery state.

imageThis is nice for a few reasons:

  1. You can see how much battery life you have left in a full-screen virtual machine.
  2. The guest operating system knows the battery state and can optimize for low power situations.

Easier virtual machine sharing

Sharing your Hyper-V virtual machines is easier with the new “Share” button. Share packages and compresses your virtual machine so you can move it to another Hyper-V host right from Virtual Machine Connection.

image

Share creates a “.vmcz” file with your virtual hard drive (vhd/vhdx) and any state the virtual machine will need to run.  “Share” will not include checkpoints. If you would like to also export your checkpoints, you can use the “Export” tool, or the “Export-VM” PowerShell cmdlet.

clip_image002

Once you’ve moved your virtual machine to another computer with Hyper-V, double click the “.vmcz” file and the virtual machine will import automatically.

That’s the list!  As always, please send us feedback via FeedbackHub.

Curious what we’re building next?  Become a Windows Insider – almost everything here has benefited from your early feedback.
