Gerry Forde recommends this “Gem” of free training on Hyper-V (Guest Post)

Gerry FordeAs I am always saying to the guys at Microsoft, You have some great free training material why don't you highlight it better to the Irish TechNet Community. This piece of online training is a real gem for anyone who is converting from VMware, those who are starting to build their own private cloud on Hyper-V/System Centre Suite or like myself would like to get a better knowledge of the similarities between VMware and Hyper-V .

This course provides valuable information in terms of Virtualization & Datacentre Planning. Viewers will receive a solid understanding of Hyper-V architecture and key Hyper-V features for management, networking and storage.

The course is delivered by two of the most respected authorities on virtualization technologies: Microsoft Technical Evangelist Symon Perriman and leading Hyper-V, VMware, and XEN infrastructure consultant, Corey Hynes. What I like about the way this course is delivered is that Symon gives you the technologies overview and Corey backs this up with his vast experience of real world onsite installation scenarios. They step you through the whole process with some great demo's so you get to see how exactly the technologies work. All the PDF's are available of all the slides presented. They also highlight some of the components that are overlook whenever I speak to anybody about the Microsoft solution, App-V, VDI, Remote Desktop Services, DPM etc.

Fortunate for anybody going to view this course its available to stream at their own convince, When I viewed this course it was delivered on American time so it was some late evenings for three nights, but in my opinion worth every minute.
