Want to get hands-on with Microsoft’s Virtualization technologies including Hyper-V?  Interested in configuring a highly-available virtualization infrastructure?  Have you wondered how to configure and use an iSCSI-based storage server?  Curious how Windows Failover Clustering can help you get a good night’s sleep?  If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, you need to be at the IT Virtualization Boot Camp.

The IT Virtualization Boot Camp provides a fun and collaborative environment where you will get hands-on experience to:

  • Prepare your Windows Server-based computers for virtualization
  • Configure iSCSI storage targets
  • Create Windows Failover Clusters
  • Make virtual machines highly available with Hyper-V and enable Live Migration to hot-migrate running workloads between hosts with no loss in client connectivity
  • Integrate non-Microsoft virtual machines into your cluster
  • See how Windows Failover Clustering can help to make dealing with hardware failure easier

  1. I appreciate that you guys put on these events, but could you consider people that take transit when you pick the venue. I’m sure the the Microsoft building has a good facility if you’re doing labs, but it’s almost 2 hours by transit from the core. It would be great if you could offer a day that was maybe held at the MSN building which is off the subway line (and already used for user group for meetings).

    1. Nick that is a very valid query… Can you ping me off-line and we’ll discuss it? I am not opposed to it, I just am not actually the guy in charge. However I have the ear of the people who are! Send me a private message so that I can e-mail you back. -M
