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.

    • 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.
