I know a lot of folks like to attend different Launch Events to get their hands on the latest and greatest information about one of our new products. Since Hyper-V was still only in Beta when Windows Server 2008 shipped, we had to release Hyper-V separately and we are now having Launch Events to highlight our new Virtualization tool.
If you live in or near one of the cities below and have time to attend, please do so. The main Launch site is: https://www.getvirtualnow.com/usevents/CitySelect.aspx?#cities.
Here's a quick snippet from the site in case you don't want to go directly there other than to register.
Find out how Windows Server 2008® with Hyper-V™, Microsoft System Center--including Virtual Machine Manager 2008—and Microsoft Desktop and Application Virtualization can help you virtualize from the data center to the desktop. Go register at a city near you at the getVIRTUALnow site or just click on your city of choice below.
Get access to everything, from three seminar sessions to the all-day Solutions Pavilion featuring Microsoft experts, virtualization technology partners, and Hands-on Labs.
Take home a free readiness kit** that includes product, training materials, product evaluations, and learning opportunities.
