What’s New in Windows Server 2012 and Hyper-V 3.0
Windows Server 2012 and Hyper-V 3.0 have been acclaimed by industry pundits as the most ambitious release of Windows Server since Windows 2000! Windows Server 2012 was released to manufacturing in early August, and will be generally available in September. Attend this event to learn what’s new in Windows Server 2012 in Scalability, Virtualization, Storage, Networking and Manageability and get a jump start in preparing for how best to leverage Windows Server 2012 in your environment.
As an optional, added bonus: If you’d like to install and work with Windows Server 2012 on your own PC (in a boot-to-VHD or virtualized installation), we’ll also be helping those who wish to get it installed and to work through some exercises along with the instructor. To do this, you will need to bring a minimum of one computer running Windows Vista or later with the following hardware configuration:
- x64 compatible processor with Intel-VT or AMD-V technology
- 4 GB RAM
- 60 GB of free disk space on a local drive (Drive C:, or some other internal drive)
- An available USB port
- No drive encryption (Bitlocker or 3rd party)
If you wish to download the release candidate evaluation of Windows Server 2012 prior to attending the event, feel free to download it from here: https://aka.ms/Server2012.
NOTE: The event is scheduled to go from 8:30am to 4:30pm, but the schedule for the afternoon is flexible and depends upon how many people want to do the installation and hands-on work.
..and I’ll see you there!
