We are a little over a month away for the www.mms-2012.com sold out event in Las Vegas April 16-20.  I thought I would post a little here about the event.

I will be doing two sessions at MMS 

On Monday 4/16

SV-B310 Deep Dive: Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 Hyper-V Changes - Dynamic Memory and RemoteFX  http://www.mms-2012.com/topic/details/sv-b310

With the release of Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 we saw two new features added: Dynamic Memory and RemoteFX. This session focuses on how Dynamic Memory works, how you use it within your Hyper-V environment, and how you update existing VMs. We focus on RemoteFX and how, using Desktop Virtualization, users will be able to work remotely in a Windows Aero desktop environment, watch full-motion video, enjoy Silverlight animations, and run 3D applications – all with the fidelity of a local-like performance when connecting over the LAN.

 

On Tuesday 4/17 I will co-deliver with Harold Wong
