This day is all about networking and learning about the latest Microsoft trends and technologies – make sure you are in the center of our IT community on November 22nd. There are over 50 break-out sessions presented by various industry experts from all over the world, including Microsoft MVPs on topics such as Microsoft Azure, System Center, Hyper-V, SQL, Windows Server, PowerShell and Office365.
Break-out sessions will be in both Dutch and English, so we encourage IT Professionals from abroad to join us at this year’s edition of Experts Live. Microsoft MVPs from Switzerland, Thomas Maurer and Michael Rueefli will guide you through the highly anticipated innovations during their session ‘Greatest Server OS Hits; best of Server 2016’ including Hyper-V 2016 features, Nano Server, Windows Server Containers and more.
Right now is the perfect time to get started and learn something new: Microsoft just released a new wave of products such as Windows Server 2016, System Center 2016 and many updates for Microsoft Azure and some announcements about Microsoft Azure Stack.
Especially Windows Server 2016 will bring some game changing new features. Innovation not only includes the usual categories such as Compute, Storage or Networking; one of the biggest investment areas in this release will be security. Microsoft released new features such as Shielded Virtual Machines, Just-Enough and Just-in-Time Administration concepts for PowerShell and a lot more features such as credentials guard.
Thomas Maurer and Michael Rueefli will cover several different topics around Windows Server 2016 and will focus on some of the new features which make Windows Server really shine. In their ‘Best of Windows Server 2016’ session they will give you an update on all the great stuff including Hyper-V, Storage Spaces Direct and Storage Replica. Storage Spaces Direct for example allows you to build your own high-performance and low-cost storage based on Windows Server 2016 and commodity server hardware with local disks. Thomas and Michael will share their experience with you, which they have gained during the deployment of Windows Server 2016 in several stages of the Windows Server Technical Previews.
In their second session, they will focus on two of the Windows Server 2016 highlights. First, Nano Server, which will be a new crazy lightweight and secure deployment option in Windows Server 2016. Secondly, Windows and Hyper-V Containers, which will be the beginning of a new era in deploying applications.
