Building a Microsoft Private Cloud isn’t hard, but it certainly isn’t easy either. Adding challenge are all the interconnecting components that require attention before you can ever create your first virtual machine. In this session, the first of a four-part series on Hyper-V and VMM in 2012, Microsoft MVP Greg Shields helps you navigate through the construction of your Private Cloud’s fabric. You’ll leave this first session with a ready-for-operations cluster and cloud that supports high availability, load balancing, and all the automations you’ll soon be adding in the sessions that follow.

You will learn:

  • Assemble hardware, OS, and software to create a Private Cloud
  • How “The Fabric” is a key building block for Microsoft Private Cloud computing
  • Best practices in Windows Failover Clustering for Hyper-V
