Webinar PowerShell Scripting and Automation for Hyper-V

Webinar: Scripting & Automation in Hyper-V without SCVMM

There are some great Webinars coming up and I am proud to speak in one of them with Andrew Syrewicze (Altaro Software and Microsoft MVP) about PowerShell Scripting and Automation in Hyper-V.

System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) provides some great automation benefits for those organizations that can afford the hefty price tag. However, if SCVMM isn’t a cost effective solution for your business, what are you to do? While VMM certainly makes automation much easier, you can achieve a good level of automation with PowerShell and the applicable PowerShell modules for Hyper-V, clustering, storage, and more.

Are you looking to get grips with automation and scripting?

Join Thomas Maurer, Microsoft Datacenter and Cloud Management MVP, who will use this webinar to show you how to achieve automation in your Hyper-V environments, even if you don’t have SCVMM.

Remember, any task you have to do more than once, should be automated. Bring some sanity to your virtual environment by adding some scripting and automation know-how to your toolbox.

We’re live on Thursday, 10th December 2015 at 10am EST / 4PM CET (30-45mins + live Q&A!)

MMS Midwest Management Summit

Speaking at the Midwest Management Summit 2015

Last year I had the chance to speak at the Midwest Management Summit 2014 (MMS). I am proud to annouce that I will speak in two sessions at the Midwest Management Summit 2015, Mall of America
Minnesota, USA.

The Midwest Management Summit is a 3-day conference purposely capped to just 600 attendees so that nobody gets lost in the crowd. Speakers have time to meet and talk to you. No rushing people out of a session to get the next speaker going. Time to absorb what you see and talk it over with speakers and other attendees. A true learning experience. Real networking. Real-life issues discussed.

I have really good memories at the conference last time, it was a fun experience. This time I am honored to speak together with Symon Perriman, former Microsoft PM and Evangelist and now Microsoft MVP and VP of Business Development at 5Nine. We will talk in four sessions about What is new in Windows Server 2016 Hyper-V, All you need to know about Nano Server, Hyper-V Security Tips: Fix the Gaps you Never Knew About and Hyper-V High-Availability Best Practices with Failover Clustering.

So make sure you register for MMS and join our sessions!



Microsoft MVP 2014

Since it is a really busy time, launch of the Windows 10 and the Previews of System Center, Windows Server 2016 and a lot of new Azure stuff. I almost forgot about the renomination of my Microsoft MVP status. So I am even more happy and proud that my Microsoft MVP status was renewed for another year.

Mike Hickman Director Community Engagement Microsoft

This is the 4th Microsoft MVP award since 2012, 2013 and 2014. The Microsofft MVP award and the included opportunities add a huge benefit like the Microsoft MVP summit where you have the chance to talk to the Microsoft Product Groups and enter your feedback. But of course the Microsoft MVP award also adds some other great advantages.

  • I have met a lot of great people from Microsoft, other MVPs, other Tech experts, friends or customers.
  • I have attended some great events like the MVP Summit, the E2EVC or the System Center Universe.
  • and much much more…

There are of course a lot of people I have to thank but I want to keep the list as short as possible. I would like to thank my employer itnetx which is supporting me in the best possible way, current and former colleagues, Microsoft MVPs (just a great community) and of course Microsoft employees.
