PASS in online today and we’ve got a great presentation for you. We’ve teamed up with Dushyanth Nataraj from VMware to put together a session that should help DBAs get their feet wet with using some of the common features/strengths of Virtualization. I’ll be doing a short presentation on Microsoft’s System Center Virtual Machine Manager showing folks how to move storage, copy machines, snapshots and reverts, and anything else I can squeeze into 20 minutes (Maybe some PowerShell?).
Dushyanth is presenting an overview of VMware vCenter Lab Manager demostrating how VMware vSphere and Lab Manager can help you build a internal cloud for dev/test. We finish up with a demo of Lab Manager running a SQL workload showcasing how you can use the product for test/dev.

This will be my first time trying to switching presenting between two different presenters with seperate demos, but we are pretty sure we can pull it off. If we want to follow along note that everything I’m presenting is done in SCVMM and everything Dushyanth does is in VMware; hopefully that works out as well. A big hat-tip goes out to my awsome coworker, Adeel Abbas, for helping me get this presentation working quickly by setting up my Domain Controller for me.
By the way…did you see the Scripting Guys articles from last week?
