Cannot Compare Windows 2008 R2 and Windows 8 Hyper-V

I finished drafting a presentation last night that I am doing at the event in Amsterdam next week.  I have 1 hour to present on networking in Windows Server 8 Hyper-V.  As I wrapped up the draft, I looked back and thought “Oh crap!”.  There is a lot of content in this deck.

This morning on the way to work, I remembered this time 3 years ago.  I did a road show with Microsoft Ireland and presented on the topic of Windows Serer 2008 R2 Hyper-V with Dave Northey (DPE, MSFT IE).  We covered all the features of that release in about 60-90 minutes.

Hans Vredevoort (MVP also presenting on storage at the event) tweeted over the weekend that he’d need 3 days to present his topic completely.  I empathise with him.  We’ve so much content to present.  I think my hour is going to be a blinding flash of PowerPoint, TLA’s, and diagrams.  The storage side of Windows 8 is damned exciting (see a sample here), but the amount of stuff in networking is frakkin’ crazy.  There’s absolutely no comparison between Windows Server 8 Hyper-V and its predecessor.  It should be an interesting day on the 19th.

  1. I sympathize with this issue. The amount of improved/new features is amazing. I’m very much looking forward to the betas as then the information flow will start running again. See you guys next week 🙂
