I'm trying to optimize a client's HyperV virtual servers and I'm hoping to get some advice.
The environment is as follows.
Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard
32 GB RAM
4 network adapters
Server 1 - Domain Controller 1048 MB RAM
Server 2 - Database server 1 8192 MB
Server 3 - RDS / Application Server 1 16384 MB
Server 4 - Database server 2 2048 MB
Currently there is one virtual network configured on the HyperV server, using physical LAN port 1. All VM network adapters use this virtual network.
All users only connect to the Virtual servers, mostly to the RDS.
I'd like to optimize the network traffic and hopefully speed up the user experience, particularly between RDS server 1 and Database server 1.
I'm looking for suggestions on the best way to do this and I'm convinced there is a better way to set this network up, possibly utilizing physical LAN adapter 2,3 and 4 on the HyperV host.
Hope this makes sense, I'm relatively new with virtual machines. Any help would be appreciated.
I'm sure I'm missing some information, questions are welcome.
