Private Cloud is the future of IT, and the future is now. Spend the day at our IT Camp and learn about Microsoft's virtualization solution, Hyper-V, the first step on your path to mastering Private Cloud.

You'll embark on an interactive journey as you learn the foundation of cloud services, Hyper-V, through architecture, networking, virtual hard drives, and virtual machines.

We are doing something new with this event.  We are bringing “camp style” content to you.  Camp Style means the audience gets to choose the content they want to have delivered for a portion of the show.  This is going to be so good!  See below for proposed agenda

You will get a full day of lecture, demo and hands-on labs free.  IT Camp will give you the jumpstart you need on Private Cloud. Seating is limited so reserve your place now!

  • 4GB RAM
  • 20 GB of free disk space
  • x64 compatible processor with Intel VT or AMD-V technology
  • Basic install of Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 with the Hyper-V Role enabled - Free download here
  • Step-By-Step Instructions for Installing OS Using Boot2VHD 
  • Make sure you have the network drivers installed and bring them with you (just in case)
  • Backup you computer before coming! (Just in case)

We also highly recommend all attendees download and familiarize yourself with System Center 2012 to facilitate your learning on the many scenarios that we will walk through in our technical demos and hands-on labs throughout "The Future of IT" series of events. Free download here.
