The MVP Virtual Conference is coming on May 14th and May 15th. Over 5000 people have already registered for the event with content driven by Microsoft MVPs in three main tracks, IT Pro, Developer, and Consumer. For the next week I will highlight some of my favorite sessions. If you want to register for this free online event, just go to this link: http://mvp.microsoft.com/en-us/virtualconference-sessions.aspx
I may be a little biased on this one since I am moderating it for Andy Syrewicze, but it hits on a very relevant topic as Hyper-V/System Center continue to grow in popularity based on its maturity, stability and broad feature set at a fraction of the cost of the vSphere stack.
Migrating from VMware to Hyper-V for VMware Professionals
Speaker: Andrew Syrewicze
Moderator: Rob McShinsky
Many IT Pros in the industry have begun their virtualization training with VMware, but as the market shifts in other directions, a lot of administrators are finding themselves managing multi-hypervisor environments. Many businesses are now in the process of migrating some or all of their virtual workloads to the Microsoft Hyper-V platform for a number of reasons including, cost savings, scalability, and ease of management. While managing a Hyper-V cluster is somewhat similar in concept to ESXi, there are some fundamental differences. This session will cover Hyper-V clustering, management differences, and the migration of VMs from ESXi to Hyper-V. The entire session will be geared towards VMware administrators who are looking to broaden their horizons by adding Hyper-V know-how to their toolbox.
Hope to see you at the Microsoft MVP Virtual Conference. Costs nothing to attend with great content from some most motivated and top technical community contributors.
