Upping your game with Windows Server 2012

Two Reg readers provide many reasons


On December 7 we were live from our London studio with Reg readers Chris Losch, from Newham Council, and Gary Collins, from Intercept IT. Between them, they ran through a raft of real-world projects and deployment scenarios where they’ve been using and abusing Windows Server 2012 to see just what it can do.

Chris is the ICT Technical Architect at Newham Council and talked us through how he is preparing his bit of local government for a world of shared resources and self-service. He ran through the projects he’s working on with Microsoft Windows Server 2012 and how it is changing the approach Newham is taking to delivery IT services.

Gary Collins comes with the different perspective of a services provider and integrator. InterceptIT are one of an elite bunch on the Windows Server 2012 Rapid Deployment Programme and, having racked up a wealth of experience already on the platform, he’s now using it live for providing scalable and reliable hosting capacity for his clients.

Alongside Chris and Gary we had Andy Buss of IT analysts, Freeform Dynamics, who ran us through the results of what the Reg readership has to say on current and future data centre trends.

The whole affair was fronted as usual by our broadcast editor, Tim Phillips, who as well as keeping everyone focussed and honest had the task of throwing your questions at the panel. So if you’ve been wondering what all the fuss is about, or even been tempted to try but have not had a chance to have a go yet, the on-demand version of this free event is now available here.
