System Center 2012 Virtual Machine Manager 2012 SP1 Deep Dive for Technet Magazine–part 2

Back in the October issue of Technet Magazine I wrote about how to take all your network and compute hardware, along with any existing VMware and XENServer clusters and manage all that fabric with SCVMM 2012 SP1. Read that “part 1” here.

In the November issue is part 2 where I cover the next step which is to build a cloud on top of the fabric. This part looks at services in SCVMM, private clouds as well as the new Service Provider Foundation (SPF). Read it here.

Enjoy, and thanks for reading.

Interview with Carol Wapshere at TechEd Australia 2012

I had the great good fortune to interview Carol Wapshere at this year’s TechEd. Carol is unusual in that she’s a woman, working in IT (there are far too few of them) and even more unusual because she’s stayed in technical roles most of her career, instead of moving into management as many IT Pros and developers do as their career matures. We talked about Forefront Identity Manager and identity in IT in general as well as looked at why there are so few women in IT. Read it here.

Enjoy! And thanks for reading.
