Last week we published the first pick in our series on “Top Picks from TechEd 2013”.  This week we cross the pond and select a session from TechEd Europe 2013. Bryan Matthew delivered “Storage Spaces: What’s New in Windows Server 2012 R2” and was one of the most highly rated sessions on both sides of the ocean. 

In this session, learn how you can deploy Storage Spaces as the infrastructure on which your public or private cloud runs.  We demonstrate how to deliver cost efficiency, availability, and performance at enterprise and hosting scale.  We also present the solutions that are available and certified today.

Check back here next Tuesday.  We’ll have Episode 3 of this series, and for those of you interested in downloading some of the products and trying them, here are some resources to help you:

  • Windows Server 2012 R2 Preview download
  • System Center 2012 R2 Preview download
  • SQL Server 2014 Community Technology Preview 1 (CTP1) download
