TechEd 2011 Wrap Up

As many people will know we just wrapped up another TechEd Australia for 2011.  This year was one of the best TechEds I have been to, but I may be biased as I felt this year had a huge IT Pro focus – something that I felt had been neglected in recent years and which made me really keen to attend next year, as I think with Windows 8 technology on the horizon, it is going to be amazing!

Some of the highlights for me were the Keynote.  Purely as an attendee in the IT Pro plenary keynote, I felt somewhat special as we were shown information on the next version of Windows which had not yet been released to the public.  There are some videos with more information on some of this that can be found here courtesy of Alan Burchill’s SmarterGeek site.

I was also lucky enough to get the opportunity to present on Private Clouds and System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2012 in my session “From Bare Metal to Silver Lining with SCVMM 2012… Today!“.

Have you wondered what it would take to build your own private cloud? Going from bare metal to Hyper-V to a Cloud used to take a significant amount of time and expertise, but with the soon-to-be-released System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2012, building a private cloud is easy and inexpensive, and with the beta of SCVMM 2012 you can do it right now!

 Join Mark Rhodes as he demonstrates provisioning of a Private Cloud, taking a blank server from Bare Metal to Silver Lining. This session will explain the core technologies of Data Center Fabric and Private Clouds with Hyper-V R2 and SCVMM 2012, and include comprehensive demonstrations of all of the steps necessary for you to go home and build your organization a Private Cloud, today!

If you are interested in catching this session, I will be presenting at the Brisbane Infrastructure Group on Monday evening.  More information and a link to RSVP can be found here.  Hope to see you there.

If you are interested in seeing the session, you can view a recording, however I strongly recommend coming along as its not really the same thing!
