Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

Hands-on On 18 June at 10:00 BST we've got our Tim Phillips and QA’s Paul Gregory diving into another feature of Windows Server 2012: using Hyper-V 3.0 to increase the availability of virtual machines.

During the hour we will run through the improvements to system scalability, the failover cluster engine's ability to perform in-guest monitoring, and the anti-affinity rules. And we'll have some more live demos of Hyper-V Replica, take a look at its setup, and explore 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 virtual machines maintain the same identity across data centres - or even between a company and a service provider or hoster.

It's going to be a lot of educational fun. You can go here to register, or just click here to add it to your calendar. For those of you who do register and attend, we’ll be holding a draw to give away three TechNet subscriptions, so don’t miss out.

If you’re wondering whether or not this is worth your while, try this video of a session we did a few weeks ago so you can get a quick feel for the thing. ®
