Introduction to Microsoft Virtualization – Halifax event

For those following my blog in Atlantic Canada, you may be interested in an upcoming local event:

An Introduction to Microsoft Virtualization and the Private Cloud with System Center 2012 and Hyper-V

Event Details

Spend an evening with Mitch Garvis, Virtual Technology Evangelist with Microsoft Canada, getting to know the Microsoft server virtualization story.  Learn not only about Hyper-V, but also the management and Private Cloud scenarios that System Center 2012 SP1 brings to the table,  Learn how to build your cloud, and also how Microsoft sets itself apart from (and ahead of) the competition in the Virtualization world!

This informal event will consist almost entirely of discussions and demos, with only a smattering of PowerPoint and fluff.  The demos will be entirely unscripted, so you will get to ask what you want to see… and Mitch will do it!

The event is to be held Tuesday, June 11, 2013 from 5:30 PM to 9:00 PM, at the Nova Scotia Community College Institute of IT Campus, 5685 Leeds St., Halifax, NS
