Just completed a one day Microsoft Partner course at Cliftons on Microsoft Azure.
This Technical Series provides training and demonstrations on how to leverage Azure to deliver cloud-based solutions and services to small and midsize businesses (SMBs).
This course covers partner opportunities, SMB trends, and a range of Azure capabilities and solutions, including backup, storage, websites, IaaS, PaaS, and more.
In this training, you will:
- Get hands-on experience—with a focus on building real-world solutions.
- Develop the skills you need—to deliver solutions specifically for SMBs with the latest technologies from Microsoft.
- Open up new opportunities in the cloud—including hybrid cloud, IaaS, and PaaS scenarios.
Microsoft has just released the upgrade course to Server 2012.
The usual suspects are there with Windows PowerShell 3.0 in there, DirectAccess and Hyper-V. If you know your Server 2008 this one should be too much of a stretch. So it is about time you download a copy of 2012 and start configuring.
Just been called up to join the Microsft V-TSP program. I am working on Private Cloud/Optimised Desktop Client Management & Virtualisation (System Center/MDOP) (Core IO) workloads.
A Microsoft TechDays Windows Server 2012 event will show you how to…
- Build your private cloud, offer private cloud services, or securely connect to public cloud services
- Increase your efficiency, availability, and manageability
- Leverage an open application and web platform for the datacentre and the cloud
- Provide secure access to your personalised work environment from anywhere
The primary audience for this event is IT Professionals and partners who want to see some of the key infrastructure improvements we’ve made in the upcoming release of the Windows Server 2012.
Showcasing presentations and demos on the following Windows Server 2012 topics…
- More secure multi-tenancy
- Flexible infrastructure, when and where you need it
- Scale, performance, and density
- High availability
Storage and Availability
- Reduces planned maintenance downtime
- Addresses the causes of unplanned downtime
- Increases availability for services and applications

- Manage private clouds more efficiently

Server Management & Automation

TechEd is coming up soon!
