Security for virtualized datacentres

On the 18th of June at 10:00BST we're firing up our own Tim Phillips and QA’s Paul Gregory to dive into another feature of Windows Server 2012: using Hyper-V 3.0 to increase the availability of Virtual Machines.

During the hour we will show how the changes in failover clustering and the improvements in scalability, in the failover cluster engine's ability to perform in-guest monitoring, and anti-affinity rules. Then, in the second half, we have some more live demos of Hyper-V Replica, covering setup and exploring the three failure models - test failover, planned failover and unplanned failover.

To finish Paul will discuss how Hyper-V Replica and network virtualization can be combined so that VMs maintain the same identity across data centres - or even between a company and a service provider/hoster.

It's going to be a lot of fun. Our first Hands On Regcast had the highest audience in our history. If you were part of that, we asked you to vote for the subject you wanted. This is what you chose, so we know you're going to like it.

If you didn't see the first one, you should try this one. It's proper hands on tutorials with live demos and live question handling. Sign up. Tell a friend. Have your questions ready.
