Hi, all,

Wow—what a spring! Between traveling for community events, on-campus events, and TechEd, it’s been a while since I posted this blog roundup. However, regardless of everything else going on I had to do this one with all the news from TechEd North America, as presented by our MVPs in Windows Server and System Center. Check out the links below for independent takes on the Windows Server 2012 R2 news about clustering, Active Directory, Group Policy, Desired State Configuration, Hyper-V, SCVMM, SCOM, Remote Desktop Services, Configuration Manager, and Windows Server Essentials.

Finally, not all blogs are about TechEd. Be sure to check out Ruben Sprujit’s advice on sizing VDI, new App-V tools, Stephen Foskett’s musings on storage, practical tips about using PowerShell from Jeffrey Hicks, Greg Shield’s thoughts on managing VDI with SCVMM, lots of new SCOM management packs identified by Marnix Wolf, announcements about Cisco’s new virtual switch for Hyper-V, and WSSC user group meetings in the Netherlands and Belgium.

Best,

Christa
