The Future Is Now – Part II

Private Cloud with System Center 2012 & Windows Server 2012

Private Cloud featuring System Center 2012 & Windows Server 2012

Highly managed systems and private cloud are the future of IT, and the future is now. In Part II of our IT Camp series, you will build a test lab with an AD domain, learn what you need to know to start or continue building a private cloud with the test lab, and witness System Center 2012 in action. We will also preview the next version of Windows Server 2012.

Seating is limited so reserve your place now!

Hands On: The format of the hands on is "keep up with the presenter if you can". We will be going through the content and you can follow along, if you like. You will get a lab guide to use during the session or to take home with you and do it / finish it later. In the lab, we will be setting up the server infrastructure that will be needed to deploy System Center 2012 basic components in your own lab. This will include AD infrastructure and virtual machines that you can use to later install System Center (VMM, Operations Manager, Orchestrator, Service Manager) including instructions on getting networking between the machines working. If you do want to try to keep up, in the hands-on lab, make sure you bring a laptop with plenty available disk space. Also, come early to grab a seat with electricity. These seats are very limited so if you want one, arrive early. CAMP HANDS-ON LAB REQUIREMENTS: If you want to participate in Hands-On please bring your laptop with the following minimum requirements:

CAMP REQUIREMENTS: Please bring your laptop with the following minimum requirements:

  • 4GB RAM is sufficient for building a simple AD domain (and 8GB will be a reasonable minimum to run a non-trivial scenario of VM deployment, which is optional for this event)
  • 80GB of free disk space
  • x64 compatible processor with Intel VT or AMD-V technology
  • Basic install of Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 with the Hyper-V Role enabled - Free download here


Download Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 and System Center 2012 to facilitate the scenarios in our technical demos. For those who want to experience the next version of Windows, download the consumer preview of Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8.
