HP ProLiant Gen8: Integrated lifecycle automation

Live Now Following the success of our first ever Hands on Regcast, we're firing up QA’s Paul Gregory once more to go deep 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. And it's live here, below, today at 10am BST.
