Hyper-V backups. The good, the bad, the ugly

This is the session I am giving. I presented this before and I have found that it still delivers a lot of value and insights to people. Every time it has helped some attendees out. We’ll discuss how Hyper-V backups have improved and why. I will also share some insights into what can trip you up with Windows Server 2016/2019.

Wim Matthyssen, a well known Azure specialist at Cegeka and is an experienced speaker delivers this one. It will help you be a better Azure admin. As he is a Microsoft Certified Trainer his teaching talents are well developed. We can only benefit from this.

The mystery session

Actually, it is such a mystery I honestly have no idea what it is all about. You’ll have to attend to find out! a talk about Azure Migrate This is “the” tool for migrating workloads to Azure. Is this the forklift for lift and shift or is there more to know? Come and find out!

I am speaking at Experts Live Netherlands 2019

I am speaking at Experts Live Netherlands 2019

I have the distinguished honor of announcing that I am speaking at the Experts Live  Netherlands 2019 conference.

This conference is a high quality event for ICT professionals in any role in any place. Infrastructure, DevOps, DevSecOps, 0365, automation as well as data & service availability and protection in any cloud (private, hybrid and pubic).  Over the years it has proven to be an excellent conference that has grown fat beyond the Dutch borders. It’ both rewarding and humbling to be able to speak there.

Windows Server Summit

Stay Relevant

On Tuesday, June 26, 2018 Microsoft hosts a virtual Windows Server Summit. It will help you get up to speed with many important capabilities in Windows Server (2016 – 2019). This is very much needed as I see even many integrators & service companies not doing enough with these capabilities. In many cases they are out maneuvered by their customers who move fast in regards to their on premises need just like they do for their hybrid & public cloud needs.

As a service provider and integrator your days are numbered if you’re going to stick to slow cycles & slow down tactics when it comes to making money. The ecosystem is changing. As compute becomes a commodity you’ll need to re-think how to deliver value.

Windows Server Summit

This  virtual experience will help your with tips and tricks for modernizing your infrastructure and applications—regardless of whether you’re running it on-premises or in the cloud.The featured speakers are well know in the Wintel ecosystem and are well positioned to bring your up to speed.

There are 4 track next to the keynote and I recommend you attend to “upgrade” your insights in Windows Server as there is a lot more to learn and investigate beyond what will be addressed here!

  • Hybrid scenarios with Azure

It’s free and registration is only need if you want to receive updates only. Come as you are when you want to.
