Some months ago I had the chance to present at the Swiss Microsoft TechDays 2012 in Basel. I had a session together with Michel Luecher from Microsoft Switzerland about the new features in System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2012 SP1 and how you can manage your new Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V environment.
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.
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.
