System Uptime

I made these screenshots about a year ago and posted them on my "old blog". I decided to post about this again on my "new blog".

About two years ago I set up Microsoft Virtual Server for one of my customers. To get the idea about the environment, this customer has more than 600 client computers on the network on more than 10 remote sites.

Unfortunately, for privacy reasons, I can’t say more about the customer. For same reason, I had to blank out some data in the screenshots.

This Virtual Server was at that time responsible for running few business critical services (e.g. RSA Server, Exchange Front-End server, domain controller, etc). All in all, this turned out to be a very busy Virtual Server.

Host server was running without any interruption for 510 days – which can be seen on the screenshots. In my opinion this is quite impressive. Unfortunately we had to take the server down after 510 days for hardware upgrade.

I know, I know, these servers were not patched for more than 500 days. I will get into this in one of my future posts. ;-)
