Hello and welcome to the UK “MCS Talks” blog.

We’ve set this blog up to provide a parallel resource to the MCS Talks Infrastructure Architecture TechNet Webcast series that’s starting on August 6th 2008. Here we’ll provide some additional information and follow up material to questions raised during the series and anything else we think will be useful for you but that we are unable to cover in the Webcast sessions.

The aim of each presentation is to share our real world experience of designing and architecting core Microsoft technologies in an enterprise environment. A number of different MCS consultants will give you a high level discussion of the different architectural and design options available and provide you with a good idea of how to approach the deployment of the technology being discussed. Each presentation will look to provide information and guidance on key architectural inputs including selecting the correct solution for the environment, whether this be consolidation of services or the expansion into a branch environment, scaling of the solution to fit the target environment, server and service placement to meet both technical and systems management requirements, and considerations for network bandwidth and options for low bandwidth locations.

To give you an idea of the areas we’ll cover, below is the list of the sessions we’re delivering over the coming months:

  • Hello,

    I tried to open the link to watch the webcast, but the page indicates that I do not have sufficient permissions. Is this because I am in the US, or is this perhaps a temporary condition?

    Looking forward to your future webcasts,

    Ed Zielinski

  • Ed,

    Looks like we made a mistake when posting the link, I've just uploaded a new link for the on demand Webcast of the first session which you should be able to access without any problems now.

    Sorry for the inconvenience and please let us know if you have any comments.
