All The Details On My Two Ignite Sessions

Thanks (I think!!!) to John at MicroWarehouse (my employer) for sticking this on the company website:


I think he even Photoshop slimmed me Smile

Here’s the details of both my sessions:

The Hidden Treasures of Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V

  • When: 5:00PM – 6:15PM, Tuesday, May 5th
  • Where: E451A
  • Session code: BRK3506

My first session is a 75 minute level 300 session focusing on lesser known features of the version of Hyper-V that you can deploy now, and leaves you in the best position to upgrade to vNext. Don’t worry if you’ve seen by TEE14 session; this one is 50% different with some very useful stuff that I’ve never presented on or blogged about before.

It’s one thing to hear about and see a great demo of a Hyper-V feature. But how do you put them into practice? This session takes you through some of those lesser-known elements of Hyper-V that have made for great demonstrations, introduces you to some of the lesser-known features, and shows you best practices, how to increase serviceability and uptime, and design/usage tips for making the most of your investment in Hyper-V.


End-to-End Azure Site Recovery Solutions for Small & Medium Enterprises

  • When: 12:05PM – 12:25PM, Thursday, May 7th
  • Where: EXPO: Lounge C Theater
  • Session Code: THR0903

My second session is 20 minutes on Azure DR solutions for SMEs in the community theatre. I’ve done lots of lab and proof-of-concept work with ASR in the SME space and this presentation focuses on the stuff that no one talks about – it’s easy to replicate VMs, but what about establishing services, accessing failed over VMs, and more?!?!?

In this session I will share some tips and lessons that I have learned from working with Azure Site Recovery services to provide a complete disaster recovery solution in Azure for Hyper-V virtual machines in a small/medium enterprise.

  1. This might be a silly question, since I’ve never been to or watched a big Microsoft conference,…..but will those sessions be live-streamed from the links in the post above, or is there any other way to sit in remotely?

    I’ve a particular interest in the Azure Site Recovery session, and look forward to the future blog post about it. Continued thanks for putting the effort in to the blog.

    1. Hi Eoin,

      The keynote is streamed live, and a few other things are live too on Channel 9. Breakout sessions (such as my Hyper-V one) are recorded and usually shared 1 day later on Channel 9 … unless there’s an issue with the content of that session. I don’t know what they’re doing with the community theater sessions, such as my ASR one.

      Oh – you’ve missed out 2 opportunities to get training on this from me in Dublin over the last 2 months. Contact John at MicroWarehouse to get on our tech training mail list.
