This complete video course shows you how to participate in the Cloud through Hyper-V and Remote Desktop Services. Hands-on skills for real-world success!

Description


The IT world is changing very quickly: it seems like every day, more IT infrastructure and applications move to “The Cloud.” This easy video course is designed to help you master all the skills you need to participate in this trend using Microsoft’s Hyper-V and Remote Desktop Services. World-class networking instructor and consultant Ed Liberman starts by introducing the absolute basics of Microsoft Hyper-V virtualization, and each type of virtualization available to you. Next, he guides you through the basics of installing and configuring Hyper-V for your unique environment and your specific requirements for scalability and availability. You’ll walk through using key tools such as the Hyper-V Manager and Best Practices Analyzer; enforcing security; and creating virtual machines, virtual hard disks, checkpoints, and virtual switches. Liberman concludes by showing how to implement high availability and redundancy using network load balancing and clustering and how to move virtual machines to maintain maximum flexibility and performance.
