Some Basic Networking Concepts Simplified

Last week, we held our first webinar on Docker for Windows Server 2016” to a record number of attendees, showcasing the most exciting new Windows Server 2016 feature - containers powered by Commercially Supported Docker Engine. A network packet is a formatted unit of data (a list of bits or bytes, usually a few tens of bytes to a few kilobytes long) carried by a packet-switched network Packets are sent through the network to their destination. The managers are conservative in their approach and would prefer Server 2012 as a well-tested product.

Imagine a scenario where you want three isolated networks, but you only have a single physical switch. Routers also divide networks logically instead of physically. Students gain the skills and knowledge to install and manage small-scale networks, either as an independent network support technician of as part of a team.

Select either Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard (Server with a GUI) or Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacenter (Server with a GUI), and then click Next. With all this talk of cloud and hybrid, Microsoft hasn't forgotten about its bread, butter, and peach jam: the enterprise datacenter that runs Windows Server.

In most cases, line-of-sight propagation is used, which limits the physical positioning of communicating devices. We want to have a virtual network that allows our VM to access the internet, as well as communicate with other virtual machines (if you choose to create them).

Once the iSCSI storage is connected to the server, time to add the storage to our server and assign a disk before we start the Hyper-V configuration. There is a whole section dedicated to the Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview Although the material can be quite dry, the information is extensive and acts as a guide to help you understand and navigate new features.
