My Introduction to the 20+ Days of Server Virtualization (Part 0 of 20)

Did you know that Microsof has a free virtual academy?Welcome to March 2013!  Can you believe it?   March is already here!  And as you’re coming to learn, a new month means a new topic for our team’s series of blog articles.

This month the topic is Server Virtualiaztion.  Specifically, we’ll be discussing and helping you learn more about Microsoft’s virtualization platform: Hyper-V.  We’ll go in-depth into topics that provide and support this, such as virtual networking, storage, performance, vMotion…

“’vMotion’? That’s VMware, isn’t it?”

Yeah.. that was just to see if the VMware fans among you were paying attention.  If I’d said “Live Migration” or “Live Storage Migration”, you might not have understood what I meant.  But from now on, that’s what I’ll be calling these capabilities.  Anyway, some other topics…

Tools!  We’ll be talking about System Center 2012 and the Enterprise-class components that configure, support, manage, monitor, and drive virtualization.  And as I’ve already hinted – we’ll be comparing and contrasting the capabilities of Hyper-V with its nearest competitors.

In part 0 (the introduction) of the series, Dan Stolts also gives us a good introduction to what we’ll be discussing.  READ HIS ARTICLE HERE.

Also, here is my complete “20+ Days of Server Virtualization” blog post, which has a preliminary schedule and will be updated with links and any updates or changes as the month progresses.

And finally, as always, we sincerely hope that you find these resources useful!
