New Windows Server 2012 Courses in the MVA Portal

    Over the past few weeks, the Microsoft Virtual Academy portal has replenished with several new free courses on Windows Server 2012 . These courses cover in more detail a number of issues raised in the technical overview of the operating system.

    • Hyper-V scalability, including a detailed discussion of hypervisor settings on NUMA systems.
    • All aspects of dynamic migration (Live Migration), including Storage Migration, migration + SMB, migration security settings.
    • Features of importing virtual machines (VMs).

    • Expanding the capabilities of some network components and services, namely: DHCP Failover, NIC Teaming, Quality of Service (QoS).
    • Architecture, deployment, and operation of IP Address Management (IPAM).
    • Perhaps the first more or less detailed description of Network Virtualization technology.
