A sort-of article of mine is live on 5Nine.com

A long while ago (2010) I wrote a series of posts for 4Sysops.com on Hyper-V performance monitoring. By chance I found that some of that material had ended up on a blog over at 5nine.com. I contacted them and they did the right thing – restoring my faith in humanity. Apparently a guest blogger (that they no longer work with) had done it and they didn’t know.

Anyway, they’ve attached my name and bio to the post, which you can read here. Original 4Sysops series starts here.

Thanks for reading.

I’m speaking at the SMB IT Pro conference on Office 365 Security

Here’s the resource page for my presentation at the Australian SMB IT Pro conference on the 27th and 28th of October 2017 in Brisbane. On the page you’ll find the PowerPoint deck, web links to all resources I mention in the presentation and videos with narration for the demo part of the session.

What’s new in Virtual Machine Manager in System Center Tech Preview for 4Sysops

At the same time as Microsoft released the Windows Server Technical Preview back in October, they also released Technical Previews of the System Center suite. This are very, VERY early code, and the only scenarios to test are support for SQL 2014 and Windows Server vNext. So for new features I had to do a little bit of digging.

There was enough there for a single post however and I cover some things that aren’t in the preview yet but that are coming, read it here.

Enjoy! And thanks for reading.
