I am often asked if we can put on more hands-on events where you get a chance to play with the technology. I’m happy to report that we have started the IT Virtualization Boot Camps, which we will take across the country.

IT Virtualization Boot Camps are brought to you by your local user group and Microsoft TechDays Canada . The first two IT Virtualization Boot Camps are taking place at the Microsoft Mississauga offices on January 21, 2012 and January 23, 2012 . These sessions provides a fun and collaborative environment where you will get hands-on experience to:

-Prepare your Windows Server-based computer for virtualization

-Configure an iSCSI storage server

-Create a Windows Failover Cluster

-Make Hyper-V virtual machines highly available and using Live Migration to move running workloads between hosts with no loss in client connectivity

-Integrate non-Microsoft-based virtual machines into your cluster

-See how Windows Failover Clustering can help to make dealing with hardware failure easier

The cost to attend an IT Virtualization Boot Camp is $25 with proceeds going to your local user group. This means that not only are you getting 6 hours of hands-on experience with Hyper-V , iSCSI, Windows Failover Clustering , and more — you’re also helping your user group to support you and your peers with ongoing activities.

If you are interested in having an IT Virtualization Boot Camp take place in your area, contact your local user group , or send me and email . To stay up to date on IT Virtualization Boot Camps taking place across the country, follow me on Twitter and regularly visit the Canadian IT Pro Blog .
