Greetings from Tech-Ed 2008 / IT Pro week - one of the biggest and busiest IT Pro technical training events in the world.

My glamorous travel week so far has been:

Monday -- Fly from Dallas to Miami, wait on aircraft trouble, and finally arrive in Orlando around 8PM - upload VHD images and prep classroom hardware until 1:30AM.  Asleep by 2AM.

Tuesday -- Wake up at 6:30 to prep the Storage and DPM kiosk stations with PowerPoint and demo's.  Then, spent around 6 hours briefing analysts on all things 'Storage' -- storage workload in Windows Server 2008, Storage Server/WUDSS, and (of course), Data Protection Manager.  A few random meetings, and I am in my hotel by 9PM to do e-mail.

Wednesday (today) -- I'll do the first 2 breakout sessions around DPM - followed by 3 more events on Thursday - and 2 more on Friday.

And as much as that might sound like whining -- this is a really good week for me.  There is nothing about my job that I love as much as customer interaction, particularly from the podium of a technical breakout session.  Today's demo is my most ambitious, including Exchange CCR and File sharing clusters, SQL 2005 & 2008, SharePoint 2007, and Exchange 2007 -- along with the three Virtual Server host platforms and some brand new WS08 servers -- backed up courtesy of the new 'Rollup Update' for DPM 2007 which gives me supported protection of Windows Server 2008.

In today's breakout session, the first of three in a series for DPM, I do a technical introduction (200-level) that is very demo heavy.  Here are two podcasts using the same demo environment for your viewing pleasure -- basically doing a demonstration of how to protect and recover data with DPM 2007.  If you haven't seen DPM in action, or just feel like a refresher - then I hope you enjoy these.

If you'd like to watch this live, come to session MGT250 - DPM 2007 Technical Introduction of DPM2007.  Later this week, come back for MGT366 (Protecting Applications with DPM2007) and MGT450 (Advanced Features of DPM2007).  Other learning opportunities include MGT50-HOL, MGT64-HOL, MGT50-TLC., as well as a Data Protection/Virtualization session that I do with my buddy, Edwin Yuen, which we really ought to do as a TechNet webcast - and a session for the SharePoint folks on DPM2007 protection.  It is a very busy week - and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Thanks for reading ... and watching

  • There is a error in the link for the "Streaming Video -- How to protect data with DPM2007" (a "i" to much). Correct link is: mms://

  • Kjetil -- THANK YOU for the correction.

    Would you believe that I misspelled the URL on purpose so that I could see if anyone actually watches these podcasts?

    I didn't really, but umm, ... well ... thanks !
