East Region TechNet Events: The event will kick off at 9:00 AM and end by 5:00 PM with check in at 8:30 AM.

We'll start with the fundamentals of virtualization, cover industry trends in private cloud computing, and quickly move on to the architecture, the process, and the operations for building and managing a private cloud. Experienced Windows Server and VMware administrators will learn how to leverage their existing virtualization skills with System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) 2012 and private cloud construction from a service standpoint. The day will wind down with a bonus session presented by your area IT Pro Evangelist to highlight additional important topics, learning roadmap, case studies, etc. on private cloud.

Does your company use VMware? Are you sure it's the best choice? The industry is buzzing about the cloud in all its forms, including public, private and hybrid deployment models. If you're eager to explore the cloud and alternative ways of building next-generation data centers, please join us for an exciting day of learning with your Microsoft TechNet IT Pro Evangelists. We'll take a technical look at the next set of Microsoft virtualization technologies and how they can help you harness the cloud – on your own terms.

These events are a great opportunity to advance your career and become the cloud expert in your organization. So grab a cup of coffee and get set for a fast-paced, demo-heavy day of learning. The morning session will take a look at Microsoft virtualization technologies and all the products you need to take your data center to the next level. We will do direct comparisons, and discuss the myths surrounding how Microsoft Virtualization compares to VMware; proving that Microsoft is the best choice in terms of performance, management, and dramatically lower TCO. In the afternoon, provided you've brought a sufficiently powered laptop, you'll have a chance to get hands-on and explore these new technologies on your own terms. Ask questions, compare notes with your peers and get the answers you need. The day will wind down with a bonus session presented by your local IT Pro Evangelist to highlight additional topics, certification roadmaps, and more.
