For our free event in Newcastle on the 19th September I'm teaming up with my NEBytes collaborator Ben Lee to cover Microsoft's new Server release.
Windows Server 2012 is a huge release for Microsoft. Almost everything is new or improved, so don’t worry we're not going to try to cram it all into a one hour session; Instead we're giving the whole of September's NEBytes over to it!
Some of the questions thrown up by the new OS we’ll look to help answer are:
- Server 2012 utilises the same new UI as Windows 8 and defaults to a core install, does it matter and do we need the UI anymore?
- Microsoft say that this has been designed as a Cloud OS, what does that actually mean?
- Server Manager is radically different, can you really manage all of your servers with a single pane of glass?
- We've got improvements around continuous availability, Direct Access, VDI, new Dynamic Access Controls and many more features but what do these really mean to me?
In this full length Server 2012 special Ben and Jonathan will take you on a tour of the main highlights from the new OS and share some of their personal favourites. We're going to be talking storage, networking, Hyper-V and as many many more things so bring your curiosity and your propeller hat and we’ll see you there.
If you're going to be attending, please register on Eventbrite so that we can keep track of numbers.
