Free (as in beer) Windows Server 2012 training – Regular IT guy

Free (as in beer) Windows Server 2012 training

imageI’ve been working with Windows Server “8” since last September when it first peeked outside of the internal deployment servers at the Build conference. Because I was not part of the engineering group or product team – I had the same level of access all the rest of the public had.  Time moved forward and things changed in January when I moved to “The Mother Ship” and joined the Corp Evangelism team. A little more access, but mostly connections to some really smart people talking quite candidly about Windows Server “8” and the upcoming Beta release. Now it’s getting even closer with an RC coming around the corner soon.

I believe it’s time to take this to the next level and share the goodness that is Windows Server 2012.

Are you ready for some serious pay dirt on Windows Server 2012? Are you ready to evolve your Datacenter (regardless of it’s size) and your skills to a new level of capabilities?

I’ve created and will be delivering a 2 day online FREE event with Microsoft Learning called a JumpStart.  It’s going to take place on June 20th and 21st in-between TechEd North America and TechEd Europe. I recruited my good friend Corey Hynes to help deliver this monster of a online event and will have a plethora of help from product teams, IT geeks and helpers all around answering questions and interacting in the live chat room. In short – it’s going to be an all around Windows Server 2012 party my friends!

Here’s the official write up.

Windows Server 2012:
Preparing for the Datacenter Evolution

Windows Server 2012 provides a dynamic, highly available and cost-effective server platform for the modern datacenter and the cloud. Its impact scales from a few servers all the way to multitenant-aware, multisite environments in the largest organizations. Windows Server 2012 is one of the most significant releases of Windows Server to date, and there is a vast number of new features in this release that will enable you to Cloud-Optimize your IT.

Leveraging the popular “Jump Start” virtual classroom approach, Microsoft Senior Technical Evangelist Rick Claus and Microsoft Partner Corey Hynes will walk you through their personal favorite feature sets while answering why and how each one will have a positive impact on improving your day-to-day IT environment. These accelerated, engaging and demo-heavy sessions are guaranteed to get you excited and ready to try them yourself.

We’re loosely going to be breaking this up into for chunks over two days. The breakdown is organized into the following categories:

  • Beyond Virtualization
  • Manageability
  • Storage technology
  • Remote access / networking

Did I mention it’s Free (as in beer)?

  • Will there be a recorded version for download later? Do I need to register in order to download the recorded version even if I can’t attend the live version? This is because… it will be started at midnight in Singapore! 🙁

  • Sounds interesting, not sure how much I’ll be able to download, but I have 9Gb available this month, Win8 release preview works well with my hardware. AMD A6 X4 4Mb cache APU, 16Gb 1.6GHz ddr3 RAM, using a 244Gb SATA3 partition.

  • Loaded Server 2012, like windows 8 release preview, it works well with the new AMD APU hardware, was able to get most of the roles on still can’t work out how to change from workgroup to domain, or make a static IP address, but it defrags very well and loads the latest Office 2010 real fast. Rumor mill had it hibernating, but no such luck, or able to use speedboost, still all in all very good software to hardware, Stu most dip elect comp tech, most server 2000, but missed cut off date. Will get a 60Gb flash drive in a month, at about 28Gb, with Office 2010, this will be better than speedboost, look foward to the tutorials, still have 5Gb of download this month.

  • windows servers and cloud computing have become so reasonable priced that any company can benefit from the advantages. If you are looking to upgrade your datacenter, we have the expertise to help you through the process.

  • I missed this training by a few months :/ Is this available online anywhere? Very interested in the covered topics.

    Thank you,
