Microsoft’s vision for Private Cloud computing is so far reaching that even VMs are becoming passé. Rather than being the singular unit of management, VMs in VMM 2012 become just another building block. VMM’s new unit of management is the Service, and while Services aren’t meant for everyone (or every IT application) they offer an impressive new approach in enhancing how IT delivers its services to users. Join Microsoft MVP Greg Shields for one final session to learn about VMM Services, how to (and not to) configure them, and where they can fit into your datacenter operations.

You will learn:

  • Assemble all the building blocks created so far into usable, reusable, and self-servable Services
  • Avoid the pitfalls in creating Services and greatly reduce your time to operational implementation
  • Get a head start on Microsoft’s emerging – and some would say awesome – Private Cloud vision in its entirety
