The next E2EVC conference will take place in Copenhagen on the 30th May to 2th July. I have the chance to present a session with the title “SCVMM-Mania (should or should you not manage all your hypervisor platforms using SCVMM 2012 SP1)” together with Michael Rüefli. The session will include content about System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2012 SP1 and how you can manage different hypervisors like Hyper-V, VMware ESXi and Cirtix XenServer.
Today it’s not only valentines day, it’s also the day where the Microsoft Surface RT comes available in more countries includes Switzerland. And for this Microsoft made a small event for the Microsoft Surface Launch in Switzerland.
The Surface is available in Switzerland via the Microsoft Online Store and some retail stores like Media Markt. And with the launch in Switzerland you can also get the Type Cover and the Touch Cover with a Swiss keyboard layout.
Last week Microsoft Switzerland organized their largest event in 2012 called TechDays 12 which took place in the beautiful city Basel.
Two days sessions about the latest and greatest Microsoft technology for IT Pros and developers. I had a session together with Michel Lüscher from Microsoft Switzerland about System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2012 SP1. Of course there were a lot of great session with itnetx contribution from Philipp Witschi, Marcel Zehner (MVP System Center Data Center and Cloud Management) and the former Microsoft Switzerland employee Markus Erlacher who will be joining itnetx on 1st of March 2013.
They were all presenting in a Master Class about Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V. Unfortunately Hans Vredevoort couldn’t make it and I had the chance to step in and providing a session for the Master Class where I talked about Hyper-V Host design and deployment with Hyper-V Converged Fabric and how you can migrate from VMware to Hyper-V.
I want to thank Carsten, Didier, Aidan for opportunity to speak with them in the Master Class and Alex Juschin for hosting this excellent event.
Last Friday I had two session at Geekmania 2012, a the conference for real geeks. Together with other architects and engineers of itnetx we were presenting lot of cool stuff around Microsoft Virtualization and Systems Management at Level 400.
In my two sessions me and Philipp Witschi from itnetx talked about the new Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V features like Hyper-V Replica and in the second session I focused on Hyper-V over SMB, showing new features and possibilities of SMB 3.0.
A great thing to see was the full cinema hall (around ~120 people) during the Hyper-V and Windows Server 2012 Storage session, which shows the great interested in Hyper-V.
I hope people could learn something new and enjoyed my sessions and Geekmania 2012. It was great to talk to a lot of people about the new Hypervisor.
