Well, I'm sitting at Windows 8 CP on my EliteBook 8540w and it's running very nicely thank you!   More on the install experience soon, but I just wanted to call out that we have IT Camps running in Brisbane and Melbourne next week around the subject areas of Datacenter Virtualization and Datacenter Migration.   We still have spots left in both locations, so think about coming along, it's a fun packed day of information and hands-on labs.   Jeff Alexander actually blogged earlier today on this exact topic, so rather than reinvent the wheel, you can find all the information here.


  
  
  
  
  
  
  
  
  
  
  
 

 
 

 


 
 
  
  
  
  
  
  
  
  
  
  
  
  
 
 
 






Microsoft Datacenter Virtualization… This two-day workshop aims at providing an
in-depth understanding of Microsoft's server virtualization technologies. They
are the basis of a dynamic infrastructure and provide the building blocks of a
private cloud solution. The workshop covers:

1.

How Microsoft's virtualization technologies fit
  together

2.

Fundamental hypervisor architecture

3.

High availability for virtualized infrastructures

4.

Deployment, management, backup and disaster recovery

5.

Basics of
  a private cloud

In
addition to getting the fundamentals for these topics you will get a chance to
get hands-on with the technology through a series of labs throughout the day!
The presentation and lab manuals will be provided in digital format and the
average level is 300. Come join us for this action packed technical training
event and become a Virtualization hero!













Preparing Your Datacenter for Private Cloud… Is your core Windows Server
Infrastructure outdated and clinging to the x86 server architecture? The time
is now to move the critical services this infrastructure supports to new more
modern hardware along with the current supported revisions of the Windows
Server Platform. Bring your questions on essential services such as Active
Directory, Group Policy, DHCP, DNS, File/Print, Certificate Services and
Hyper-V virtualization to this unique Microsoft event where we will SHOW you
real life answers to real life questions. No death by Powerpoint here. This
camp will provide you with interactive demos and hone your skills in a hands-on
lab environment.
