You have probably already seen a number of blogs and tweets about several events related to Windows Server 2012 and Hyper-V.
Well, I am joining the party too!
For The Experts Conference (TEC), which will be held in Barcelona (22-24 October 2012) this is my third speaking engagement.
My first presentation for TEC was in Frankfurt and offered a deep dive into Storage in what was still called Windows Server 8. It was only one month after the build conference. It was so early that I could only demo by using PowerShell, but it was a very early view on what was to come.
I was then kindly invited to speak at TEC 2012 in San Diego. There were very few European speakers so I was very honored indeed. My presentation was called Hot Storage Tricks with Windows Server 8. I did a last minute rename to Cool Storage Tricks because the weather had suddenly turned very cold. You need to be flexible these days.
This time, I will speak at TEC 2012 in Barcelona and now I will do two presentations:
The first one is called Configuring Hyper-V Networking with Confidence and Ease which focuses on the myriad number of new ways to configure networks in Windows Server 2012 and using the Hyper-V extensible switch. Topics such as NIC Teaming, Converged Fabric, Network Virtualization and Switch Extensions will be demonstrated. My talk is more or less a practical Part 2 of Didier van Hoye’s (@WorkingHardInIT) presentation called Networking Evolved in Windows Server 2012.
The second one is a modified repeat of my San Diego presentation: Hot Storage Tricks with Hyper-V in Windows Server 2012. Let’s hope the weather stays fine, or I have to rename the title of my presentation again.
TEC 2012 Barcelona promises to get a great Virtualization track focusing on Windows Server 2012, because several of my renowned fellow MVP’s will top the bill. Apart from Didier there will be:
