Exchange 2013 Whats New

Posted by mountainbrother - 17. Juli 2012

Exchange 2013 Preview

  • Server Roles: Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 Preview consists of
    the following two server roles Client Access server role and Mailbox server
    role Exchange2013 Server Roles
  • Exchange Administration Center: No Exchange management console
    ,Exchange 2013 Preview provides a single unified management console that allows
    for ease of use and is optimized for management of on-premises, online, or
    hybrid deployments. The Exchange Administration Center (EAC) in Exchange 2013
    Preview replaces the Exchange 2010 Exchange Management Console (EMC) and the
    Exchange Control Panel (ECP). ExchangeAdministration Center
  • Exchange 2013 architecture RPC is no longer a supported direct access
    This means that all Outlook connectivity must take place using
    RPC over HTTPS (also known as Outlook Anywhere).
  • New public folder design: Public folders in Exchange 2013 Preview
    now take advantage of the existing high availability and storage technologies
    of the mailbox store. The public folder architecture uses specially designed
    mailboxes to store both the hierarchy and the public folder content. This new
    design also means that there is no longer a public folder database. Public
    folder replication now uses the continuous replication model. Public
  • 2013 Preview has *Offline* access in Outlook Web App (OWA).
  • The transport pipeline in Exchange 2013 Preview is now made up of
    several different services:
    the Front End Transport service on Client
    Access servers, the Hub Transport service on Mailbox servers, and the Mailbox
    Transport service on Mailbox servers. For more information, see Mail
  • Site mailboxes improve collaboration and user productivity by allowing access to both documents in a SharePoint site and email messages in an Exchange mailbox, using the same client interface. A site mailbox is functionally comprised of SharePoint site membership (owners and members), shared storage through an Exchange mailbox for email messages and a SharePoint site for documents, and a management interface that addresses provisioning and lifecycle needs.see Site Mailboxes

The whole list is here

Xenserver TAMPA

Posted by mountainbrother - 14. Juli 2012

This week was a very good Masterclass Webinar for the next Release of Xenserver:

here are the new features and links powered by Masterclass:

  • LACP Bonding Support: This feature preview includes support for Link Aggregation Control Protocol bonding, enabling you to use the same switch-based features to provide fault-tolerance and load balancing of network traffic for XenServer hosts as you do with other systems and devices.
  • NIC Support Improvements: Up to 4 NICs in a bond are now supported increasing the total bandwidth available and increases fault tolerance in the case of a hardware failure.
  • Multi-Tenancy Host Improvements: The new multi-tenancy extensions allow XenServer administrators to lock a virtual switch port to a MAC address and a list of IPv4 or IPv6 addresses. This means that when these extensions are deployed VMs cannot impersonate any other VM; or intercept traffic intended for any other VM.
  • Emergency Network Reset: Network Reset provides a simple mechanism to recover and reset a host’s networking configuration to its original state at fresh installation. This is also useful when you simply want to configure networking on a host from scratch, and helps to recover a host from an incorrectly configured state. Refer to the XenServer 2012FP Administrator’s Guide for detailed information.
  • Enhanced Guest OS Support: Support for CentOS 5.7 (32/64-bit), CentOS 6.0 (32/64-bit), CentOS 6.1, CentOS 6.2, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.7 (32/64-bit), Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.1, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.2, Oracle Enterprise Linux 5.7 (32/64-bit), Oracle Enterprise Linux 6.1, and Oracle Enterprise Linux 6.2. Refer to the 2012 FP Virtual Machine User’s Guide for virtual memory and disk size limits for these new guests.
  • XenServer Tools Improvements: Guests running Windows operating systems, can now can make use of either .Net 3.5 or .Net 4.0 when installing XenServer Tools.
  • Integrated StorageLink SMI-S Support: SMI-S compatible storage arrays are now supported
  • IPv6 Guest Support: Full support for IPv6-enabled Guests.
  • Storage XenMotion: Storage XenMotion allows VMs to be moved from one host to another, where the VMs are not located on storage shared between the two hosts. This enables system administrators to rebalance VMs between XenServer pools (for example from a development environment to a production environment) upgrade and update standalone XenServer hosts without any VM downtime, and upgrade XenServer host hardware. For more information, refer to the XenServer 2012 FP Virtual Machine User’s Guide and the XenCenter online help.
  • Live VDI Migration: Live VDI migration allows the administrator to relocate the VMs Virtual Disk Image (VDI) without shutting down the VM. This enables you to move a VM from cheap local storage to fast, resilient, array-backed storage, move a VM from a development to production environment, move between tiers of storage when a VM is limited by storage capacity, and perform storage array upgrades.
  • New Installation Mechanism for XenServer Tools:The new installation mechanism enables future updates of the XenServer Tools to be delivered directly to the VM administrators via the standard Windows Update Service; the XS administrator no longer needs to be involved in the process. This new simplified delivery mechanism allows for true role separation, which is particularly useful in a IaaS environment.Previously the installation mechanism of XenServer Tools for Windows Virtual Machines assumed that the roles of a XenServer administrator and a Virtual Machine (VM) administrator were performed by the same person, and the delivery mechanism of updates to XenServer Tools matched this assumption. Following a XenServer upgrade, the administrator would have to manually update all Windows VMs and schedule downtime for VM reboots, or carry out a lengthy and complex migrate process.In this Feature Preview, the XenServer Tools are delivered as Windows Installer MSI files. This means that the same industry standard tools that are used to deliver other software and drivers can be used to manage installation and upgrade of the XenServer device drivers.

Ongoing Improvements

  • Disk usage for logging in dom0, logs now rotated hourly (CP-3137)
  • NFS stability (XOP-60)
  • VLAN performance improvements when using the OVS (CA-68226)
  • Default dom0 interrupt processing capabilities improvements (CA-70552)
  • VM-level UDP network performance improvements (CA-72746)
  • Xapi responsiveness increased during shutdown of large Virtual Machines (SCTX-507)
