As I sit in the back of the room for Microsoft Canada’s Virtualization Boot Camp Challenge today I see that the lab environments that we are providing to the attendees actually mimics the setup I use for my Virtual Partner Technology Advisor (vPTA) sessions. As such, I am seeing a lot of potential for attendees to learn a lot of great technologies, but there are a few lessons that they should know. I outlined these in an article last year called ‘vPTA: What NOT to take away from my 1-day virtualization training.’ I will urge all of the attendees (as well as all of you!) to click on the link and read the article. While a lot of the practices we use are fine for a test/lab environment, you should be aware of them before you try to implement them in your production environment!
I have written a bunch of other articles that are pertinent to the discussion… here are just some of those links:
