You will have heard of the Private Cloud concept by now. But a lot of us are still struggling with what it means to us and how we can leverage this concept. Microsoft is aware of this and wants to help us understand Private Cloud better. On top of that I can tell you from personal experience that Redmond also really wants to understand our needs in that regard better.
Recently they announced a free event (1/2 day) to achieve exactly that. Yes, they are proud to present “The Private Cloud Roadshow”. And I’m proud to say that two fellow MVPs and MEET members are delivering the content I included the agenda for you as well as the links to register.
Join experts Kurt Roggen (MVP) and Mike Resseler (MVP) for the Private Cloud Roadshow.
In this half day you will learn more about private cloud infrastructure setup and how you can monitor this. Learn how to create your private clouds and how to deploy standardized applications or services into these clouds. And as a final session you will learn how you can provide automation in your private cloud.
There are 2 options to attend (same content, different location):
