System Center Universe Europe 2015 – Recap

I finally recovered from the conference and found some time to write about System Center Universe Europe 2015. I live 20 minutes from the city center it was easy for me to get there. I already enjoyed some evenings before the event with some of the speakers and attendees in Basel. It is always a great chance to talk to other experts and share some experience with people you only met online or just see 2-4 times a year at conferences.

On Monday the SCU Europe 2015 finally kicked off and we had 3 days fully packed with System Center, Windows Server, Azure, OMS and other sessions, industry experts from around the world, networking and other parties. Three to five days which need a lot of your time and energy but which are totally worth it.

On Monday, I had the chance to be part of session hosted by Savision – Are ITIL and System Center BFFs? by Jonas Lenntun, Kevin Greene, Kristian Nese, Robert Hedblom and Thomas Maurer. The session moderated by Jonas Lenntun was a lot of fun, had some great discussions and interaction with the audience about ITIL and especially ITIL in the Cloud first world.

Tuesday morning started early with Kristian Nese and me talking about Windows Azure Pack and Cloud OS deployments in the early morning discussion about Windows Azure Pack.

After the early morning discussion Kristian and me switched to our next session about Nano Server – the next generation Cloud Server in your datacenter.

Later in the afternoon I had the chance to talk with Carsten Rachfahl about What’s new in Windows Server 2016 Hyper-V.

After we enjoyed the attendees networking party on Tuesday evening, Michel Lüscher and myself started the day with our session about Microsoft Azure Site Recovery.

SCU Europe 2015 Party

Other highlights were the official Speaker and Sponsor party on Monday, the closing note, where Marcel Zehner and Andre Pflaum presented how to automate and Manage your Tesla using PowerShell, System Center and OMS, and the closing party on Wednesday. The feedback I got so far is that this was an absolutely great event with awesome sessions, perfect organization and a lot of fun.  I really can’t wait to be back next year for System Center Universe Europe 2016 which will take place in Berlin next year.
