If you don’t regularly check in with the Microsoft Virtual Academy, you are missing out on a great way to learn at your own pace. If System Center is something you are getting into, or even if you’ve been using it for years, you might want to look at some of the new recordings available. Here are a few that are fresh this week!
Infrastructure Provisioning (with Kenon Owens)
Many organizations have a very diverse underlying infrastructure. From different pieces of hardware, to different hypervisors. Regardless of this, they need to be able to manage everything in a consistent way. With System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager, they are able to have a consistent management experience across these multiple hypervisors. This course will address deployment of compute, storage, and networking resources, and how to construct all of the different resources that we have and construct them together into a private cloud. Finally the course will delve into day-to-day operations to keep the infrastructure up and running, and deploying services to the end users as well as the architecture behind it all.
Infrastructure Monitoring (with Won Huh)
This course covers new monitoring capabilities and opportunities offered in Systems Center 2012 R2. Moving away from physical boxes being monitored only by individual teams, this course goes over all monitoring opportunities, including Private Cloud Monitoring, Public Cloud Monitoring, Hybrid Cloud Monitoring, OS and Workload Monitoring. Also included in this course is information about proactive monitoring integrated through System Center Advisor, and an overview of the new customized widget dashboard.
