The method(s) you choose will ­ epend upon the network infrastructure you have and the goals that you are trying to d achieve. See the “Learn more” section for more information about QoS solutions for Windows Server 2012. In terms of which QoS functionality to use in a given scenario, the best practice is to configure Hyper-V QoS for VMs and then create QoS policies when you need to tag traffic for end-to-end QoS across the network. QoS and the cloud If you are a hosting provider or a large enterprise that wants to deploy a shared private cloud that provides “servers for rent” to customers or business units, there are several ways that you can configure Hyper-V QoS to assign a minimum bandwidth for each customer or business unit that access applications and services from your cloud: ■■ ■■ 46 Absolute minimum bandwidth In this scenario, you could set different service tiers such as bronze for 100 Mbps access, silver for 200 Mbps access, and gold for 500 Mbps access.

A storage migration is performed, which creates a mirror on the second host of the VM’s VHD file on the first host. 3. The VM state information is migrated from the first host to the second host. 4. The original VHD file on the first host is then deleted and the Live Migration connection between the hosts is terminated. 40 Chapter 2 Foundation for building your private cloud Live Migration connection Mirror VHD file Migrate VM state Stand-alone host A Stand-alone host B Figure 2-7 How Live Migration without shared storage works in Windows Server 2012.

So if you are a hosting provider and a customer accesses its “servers in the cloud” via an expensive WAN link, it’s a good idea to configure a maximum bandwidth for the customer’s workloads to cap ­throughput for customer connections to their servers in the cloud. Data Center Bridging (DCB) Data Center Bridging (DCB) is an IEEE standard that allows for hardware-based bandwidth allocation for specific types of network traffic. The standard is intended for network adapter hardware used in cloud environments so that storage, data, management, and other kinds of traffic all can be carried on the same underlying physical network in a way that guarantees each type of traffic its fair share of bandwidth.
