It seems like five minutes since we wrapped up the Q1 tour and we're already planning Q2's tour commencing in November

It's funny for me to read the title of the session I wrote though - it's...take a deep breath..."How to take online backups of running applications via System Center Data Protection Manager AND how to provide secure remote access to applications via Windows Server 2008 Terminal Services" - hmm - it doesn't exactly roll off the tongue does it!

The abstract for the session is as follows (thankfully it reads better than the title!):

"We’re going to follow the same format as our last tour whereby we’ll use fewer than 30 Powerpoint slides for the entire session!

When is data retention interesting? For most of us it’s only when we’ve accidentally deleted something important or suffered a hardware disaster that we may wish we had implemented an automated backup regime. During the session we will  SHOW you how to install and configure System Center Data Protection Manager (SCDPM) to take online backups of running applications including Sharepoint, Exchange, SQL and Virtual machines – “there’s no such thing as a closed file to SCDPM”. We’ll also show you how to make the most of Windows Vista’s native back up features.

 

Windows Server 2008 brings with it some significant enhancements to Terminal Services to make it easier and more secure to connect remote computers and applications. We’ll show you how to make the most of the new Terminal Services Web Access which enables remote clients to access sessions across the Internet WITHOUT having to establish Virtual Private Network (VPN) connections – instead the traffic is tunnelled over HTTPS. Terminal Services “RemoteApp” completely integrates applications running on a terminal server with users' desktops such that they behave as if they were running on an individual user's local computer; users can run programs from a remote location side-by-side with their local programs – we’ll show you how this works in detail too."

 

This time around we're hosting three events per day (running one after the other) in most of the locations - James and I are covering SCDPM & Server 2008 Terminal Services, Andrew and Viral are covering "SQL Server 2008 Pervasive Insights" and "Beyond SharePoint: Advanced Solutions in Business Intelligence and Enterprise Search " - follow the links in this paragraph for the registration pages.
