Thank you to all those attendees that attended my session. I hope you enjoyed it, learned something and got a taste of experimenting with some of the perhaps lesser know features at your disposal in Windows Server 2012 R2.

A big thanks to Alex and Clare for the splendid organization of E2EVC for the twentieth time!

You can download the presentation here. The video of the session will be made available later by E2EVC so you can see the demo.

Just to make you all drool for the video to become live here’s a screenshot of what DVMQ/vRSS can achieve. Just pushing it to the limit. No, this is not “Photoshopped” I have witnesses Winking smile. That’s a W2K12R2 VM receiving 37.4Gbps of traffic. That will do or most of you I guess until 100Gbps NICs are the standard LOM on your future computing device.

By the way some people really loved some of the drawn art I used in the presentation. For these I owe thanks to Kathy Sierra and her great blog art. It’s a shame she felt the need to go dark.

More stuff is in the work as working hard in IT never fails to deliver more good subjects, findings and results to blog about.

If you’re a managerial type and feel offended, you probably should, as you’re doing it all wrong Smile. Otherwise you would have smiled because you have a sense of humor and nodded at the mistakes of your colleagues.
