To complement our IT Camps we are currently running around Australia I would like to invite you to a series of TechNet Live events on Windows Server 2012.  Seats at our IT Camps have been limited so to help with this TechNet Live! events are back starting with all the cool stuff on Windows Server 2012. If your not familiar with TechNet Live! events they are pretty simple.  They are live meetings where we talk and show you some of the cool stuff in Windows Server 2012!  We hope to see many of you at these events.  Below are the details along with how to register.

Title:  Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V Overview 

Date: Friday 12th October 2012 at 11am-12.30pm (AEST)
Presenter: Andrew McMurray

Abstract: Traditional datacenters were built with physical servers running a dedicated workload. Each server in the datacenter was designed, purchased, deployed, and maintained for the sole purpose of running a single workload. If the workload was later retired or upgraded, the physical server was either repurposed or retired.


With Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V, it is now easier than ever for organizations to take advantage of the cost savings of virtualization and make the optimum use of server hardware investments by consolidating multiple server roles as separate virtual machines. You can use Hyper-V to efficiently run multiple operating systems — Microsoft Windows, Linux, and others — in parallel, on a single server. Windows Server 2012 extends this with more features, greater scalability and built-in reliability mechanisms.

In this session, we are going to focus on how Windows Server and Hyper-V help you better manage your existing datacenter’s infrastructure through:

  • Support for important business workloads through scale and performance improvements
  • Increased business flexibility with virtual machine mobility
  • Continuous services to help meet availability and service-level agreements
  • Open and extensible platform for performance management and automation
  • Delivery of shared and multitenant environments with isolation
