Cloud on Your Terms Part 16 of 30: Where should the DC go?

Disclaimer: This is a re-post of my Oct 4, 2011 blog post.  But it fits our series, and it’s my content.  So I am giving myself permission.  Okay.. I feel like sharing this because it’s pretty stupid, but in a geeky-sort-of-way the solution was interesting enough to share. Think Chicken & Egg. (or “Catch-22”). As the title of this post suggests, the subject is Windows Failover Clustering. For those of you who are not familiar with it, Windows Failover Clustering is a built-in feature available in Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise and Datacenter editions. A... (more)

A question I’ve actually heard several times before came up again at our TechNet Event in Kansas City several weeks ago: “Can I use Hyper-V as a VM (within Windows 7)?” No. “Can you elaborate?” Absolutely. First of all, Hyper-V is a role added to Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2.  Hyper-V can’t be run inside of a virtual machine – even one that supports Windows Server 2008 R2 – because in order to work Hyper-V requires at a minimum: An x64-based processor, A processor that supports Intel VT or AMD-V technology, and Hardware-enforced Data Execution Prevention (DEP)...

Reducing Touchscreen Latency

I thought this was pretty interesting.. so for a lighter, geeky-cool post on a Friday afternoon, as I’m busy waiting for large file copies in my home office lab to complete, I thought I’d share it with you. Microsoft Research recorded a demonstration of how responsive a typical touchscreen operating system is, and how much better the experience could be if the latency (the time between the screen sensing the finger move and the visual feedback of something moving on the screen) could be reduced.
