SQL Server® 2008 R2 expands on the value delivered in SQL Server® 2008 to help your organization scale with confidence and improve IT and developer efficiency with new and enhanced tools for application and multi-server management, master data services and complex event processing. The new Self Service BI capabilities will empower end users to access, integrate, analyze and share information using business intelligence tools they already know - Microsoft® Office.


The Microsoft® SQL Server® 2008 R2 August Community Technology Preview (CTP) includes Application and Multi-server Management which will help organizations manage database environments efficiently at scale with increased visibility and control across the application lifecycle. Also included is Report Builder 3.0 with support for geospatial visualization (mapping, routing, custom shapes) which can help produce new insights and discoveries well beyond what can be achieved with standard tables and charts when geospatial data is combined with business information. Microsoft® SQL Server® StreamInsight will also be made available for Community Technology Preview in the coming weeks. This new complex event processing technology will help businesses derive better insights by correlating event streams from multiple sources with near-zero latency.

Key features in this CTP release include:

  • A new Control Point Explorer for central multi-instance and application utilization management.
  • Built-in wizards to help you quickly set up and enroll instances and Data-Tier Application components into central management.
  • Dashboard viewpoints for quick insight into application and instance utilization.
  • Report Builder 3.0 with new support for geospatial visualization.
  • StreamInsight core technology engine.

又到了夜深人靜的時候,今天來分享一下雲端運算(Cloud Computing) 與 外包 (Outsourcing)。

 

這兩個東東有關連嗎?請先看完以下的實例:

 

在台灣有許多的中小型企業,有很多都是沒有專職的資訊管理員,各軟體廠商也都推出方便使用及管理的軟體給這群中小企業的客群。

如微軟即將自家的 Windows Server 加上 Exchange + SQL + ISA Server 等包裝成一個 Small Businse Server。

 

但這些中小企業主還是會遇到一些問題,但又不想花費用請一個專職的管理人員來維護,所以有些老闆就找約聘人員,

或是找 SOHO,每個月固定給幾千元,SOHO 則每個星期找一天到公司檢查伺服器的情況,或是協助解決一些有關電腦方面。

這樣應該比請一個專職的人便宜了吧,是的。但有便宜的方式嗎?

 

若您是一家要自行開公司的老闆,這是必定會遇到的問題。

 

想一想。如果今天微軟提供 Windows Server 或 Windows 7 的租用服務,讓使用者可以自行決定要啟用幾個服務 ,租多久就負多少錢,不要用立即停止服務。

 

老闆就可以購買很便宜的電腦,這些電腦一開機,就以遠端連線或是瀏覽器來使用這些服務。

 

如此一來可以省下硬體投資成本、硬體更新及管理費用,人員離職立刻將服務停止,有新人來再啟用一個新的服務。聽起來不錯吧。

 

等於幾乎把整個 IT 的管理外包給一家廠商,它直接提供運算能力及軟體服務。

 

這只是其中的一個例子,筆者也有看到有公司已經有推出這樣的解決方案。

 

在雲端中還有許多的商業模式,等下次夜深的時候再與大家分享。

 

Enjoy.

前一陣子為了要安裝一些 x64 版的應用程式來測試,所以便將筆記電型電腦安裝 Windows Server 2008 R2 RC x64 版,沒想到安裝完後,它可以抓到所有的硬體來使用,包含無線網卡,而且效能真是不錯。

 

筆者使用過 Virtual PC 2004、Virtual PC 2007、Virtual PC 2007 SP1、Windows Virutal PC等,目前覺得 Hyper-V 有很多新的功能不錯,像是 Snapshot 或是直接把 Snapshot 匯出成另一個新的 Virtual Machine等等。

 

用了一陣子後,想說有沒有比透過 Hyper-V 的管理畫面來啟啟 Virtual Machine 更快的方法?

PowerShell -對,就是 PowerShell。

將下列的指令存檔為 HyperV.ps1,

=================================================================

#override the default security behavior of the PowerShell engine
#Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned

Param($operation, $servername)

if ($operation -eq 'start')
{
    $stateId = 2
}
elseif ($operation -eq 'save')
{
    $stateId = (32769)
}
else
{   "Unknown operation"
    $x = $host.UI.RawUI.ReadKey("NoEcho,IncludeKeyDown")
    throw
}

#Get a handle to the VM object
$VM = get-wmiobject -namespace root\virtualization -class Msvm_Computersystem -filter "ElementName = '$servername'"

#Set the state
$status = $VM.RequestStateChange($stateId)

#Are we already in this state?
if ($status.ReturnValue -eq 32775)
{
    "Already in this state"
    $x = $host.UI.RawUI.ReadKey("NoEcho,IncludeKeyDown")
}

#Wait for use to press key if it did not work successfully
#0 = Success; 4096 = Job Running
elseif (($status.ReturnValue -ne 0) -and ($status.ReturnValue -ne 4096))
{
    $x = $host.UI.RawUI.ReadKey("NoEcho,IncludeKeyDown")
}

==================================================================

開啟 PowerShell,

執行 Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned

若執行 .\HyperV.ps1 start WIN7PROx64  => 啟動 WIN7PROx86 這個 Virtual Machine

若執行 .\HyperV.ps1 save WIN7PROx64  => 存儲 WIN7PROx86 這個 Virtual Machine

Enjoy.

This document addresses late-breaking issues and information about the Windows Server® 2008 R2 operating system that are less critical than those reported in Release Notes: Important Issues in Windows Server 2008 R2 (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=160340). It serves as an overflow from that document if the number of issues discovered becomes excessive for one document. Currently, all known issues are reported in the release notes.
