Yes they are on again! 
You may recall that in May of this year myself and a colleague ran a series of Virtualization workshops around Australia.  Well they are on again with a slight name change to reflect some new content that we have added.  So version 2.0 of this workshop is called the Dynamic Datacenter Workshop which reflects some private cloud content that we have added on day 2.

Attend this free Virtualization event and get up to date with Microsoft’s Virtualization technologies!  This event will travel to 6 capital cities starting on February 1st 2011 and continuing throughout the month.  Please see all the details below of the event along with registration links!  Make sure you register now as seats are limited!

 To attend this event you will need to bring your own laptop with you.  To connect to the labs you will need the Remote Desktop Connection Client 7.0 Update installed.  This client is built into Windows 7 and is a free download for Windows XP SP3 and Windows Vista SP1 and SP2. We have already run these events in other countries and it works extremely well.   There will be food provided and in each city we will be giving away a copy of the latest Hyper-V Resource Kit.  So to the agenda:

Other Details 

We are capping registrations at 40 participants per city for this event.  For the labs we will be using 40 Hyper-V hosts that are hosted in a Microsoft Datacenter in the US.  Each attendee will use 2 Hyper-V hosts to setup and work with a 2-node cluster.  If we have 40 attendees for each event then the attendees will have to work in teams of 2 for the labs.  40 Hyper-V hosts means 20 2 node clusters = 2 attendees per cluster to do the labs.

I hope to see many of you at this free Virtualization event.

    Wow!  Interesting...  Do you have any documentation you'd be willing to share internationally?
