I am pleased to announce that I will be presenting the following sessions at PrarieDevCon in Calgary. These will be a repeat of the sessions that I did at TechDays last year with some updated content.
There are a lot of great presenters at the conference this year and I would definitely recommend that you come check it out.
There is a ton of awesome content already this year and the expense for the conference fees are worth it.
Listed below are my sessions that I will be queued up for on March 13th, 2012.
Understanding How Microsoft Virtualization Compares to VMware
This is a must-see session for anyone who is comparing VMware with Microsoft’s virtualization offerings. We will review Microsoft’s technology compared to VMware, focusing on what differentiates the two technologies. The session will also cover effective strategies for integrating Microsoft virtualization into datacenter environments, and review one company’s experience with implementing Microsoft virtualization. If you need to know how the Microsoft virtualization stack compares to VMware’s, this is the session for you!
Hyper-V in the Real World – Performance Tuning and Best Practices
Do you have Hyper-V deployed? Are you looking to deploy in the next few months? In this session you will learn from our Real World Deployments. Review best practices on the following: • Virtual Switch Configuration • High Availability • VLAN Trunking • Performance Monitoring • Disk Configuration • Hyper-V Optimizations • Performance Baselines • Dynamic Memory • and more! If you are serious about getting it right the first time this session is one that should not be missed.
Hyper-V in the Real World –Multi-Site DR with the System Center Suite of Products
Are you struggling with new expectations of high availability for your workloads? Have you been told by upper management that Exchange, SQL Server, Web Services are critical applications and need to have a 4 hour or less Service Level Agreement. Is it possible to achieve a Multi-Site DR solution with Microsoft System Center and Hyper-V? Yes it is! With Microsoft System Center Technologies you can accomplish this economically. Microsoft Enterprise Core Infrastructure Licensing + Microsoft System Management Suite (SMSE/D) licensing include all of the tools necessary to complete this out of box. In this session you will learn how to provide a highly available infrastructure with tools that you might already have licensed and not even know it.
Hope to see you all out there.
