Keynote Luc

2010 will definitely be the year of the cloud. During the keynote you will hear about the continuum of cloud services spanning from Iaas to Saas that Microsoft is offering and that will allow organizations to move between cloud computing models with the confidence that their existing investments in their datacenter are safe, and can be leveraged in this new paradigm. Existing applications and services will be able to move to the private or public cloud without the need to learn unproven technologies or introduce unnecessary complexity.

TechDays: New session about Dynamic Memory and RemoteFX

1:32 pm in Uncategorized by evilbart

There was still one session in the IT Pro track that I could not disclose because the announcement was not made yet. But now that we announced the Dynamic Memory and RemoteFX capabilities in SP1 I can disclose the following session: 

Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V and NEW SP1 features!

In this session, we will look at Hyper-V’s progression from Windows Server 2008, to R2, and will also give you a sneak peek of the new Hyper-V features coming in SP1.  SP1 will include both Microsoft Remote-FX and Dynamic Memory. These features are designed to meet the increasing needs of our customers as they utilize virtualization in their environments with Windows Server 2008 R2.  We will investigate how Hyper-V has continued to advance and how SP1 will address critical business and technology requirements.
