Upcoming Windows User Group Events

April 28, 2009

The Irish Windows User Group will be running two events over the next 2 months.  The details are below.  Note that anyone outside of Ireland or not near these venues can still attend online using Live Meeting.  We’re also planning to host the recordings on a new Microsoft TechNet Ireland portal.

Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V Deep Dive (This Thursday)

At TechDays for IT Pro’s 2009 there will be some sessions on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. This will include some information and demonstrations on the new version of Hyper-V. However, due to time constraints, we won’t have time to get into the deep details of how and why things work.

Aidan Finn (C Infinity) will be talking about the new technologies that will be included as part of Hyper-V in Windows Server 2008 R2 and Hyper-V Server 2008 R2. This includes new functionality and improvements in performance thanks to cooperation between Microsoft and their hardware partners.

Dave Northey (Microsoft Ireland) will be doing some demonstrations of the technology in action, including the much anticipated Live Migration.
