The Regina Technology Community welcomes Damir Bersinic!

Topic: Virtual Reality - The Truth About Microsoft Virtualization
There are lots of players out there in the Virtualization Market. All of them have options to help you build a highly available solution to virtualize and protect your servers. Did you know Microsoft has a solution that you can cut your teeth into even if you are just learning the ropes and don't have access to high end SAN hardware?

Join us for a demo-intensive session that builds a solution from scratch and gives you the skills to bring this technology into your organization or customer environments for a fraction of the cost of the competitors offerings. This session will cover the story of an organization looking to enhance their current infrastructure and virtualization solutions. It will start with the requirements, proceed into the build process and demonstrate all of its capabilities including post deployment management.

Technologies covered:
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1
  • System Center Virtual Machine Manager
  • Microsoft iSCSI Target software v 3.3
  • The free Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 SP1
  • Live Migration
  • Snapshots
