Open Cloud BBQ – Nano Server

There was a barbecue today… on the roof… of the Microsoft office! How cool is that??? Smiješak

I’ve had an honor to join my colleagues and friends, and contribute to this great event with a presentation called “Nano Server – budućnost je tu!”, which was actually inspired by Jeffrey Snover’s Ignite speech about Nano Server – the new installation option in Windows Server 2016.

The whole Nano Server idea is very simple – let’s remove all the “unnecessary” roles and features (especially the famous GUI), and leave only the parts that we really need for whatever purpose (i.e. we’re getting the “purpose built servers”). All the purposes/roles that are supported in this preview version are Hyper-V, File Server and Failover Clustering, and they are working great on this “nano-sized” server operating system (even in this early preview).

I’m really excited about Nano Server, and I’m so glad that I’ve had a chance to talk about it at such great event. Because there were so many questions about it during the day/evening, I’ve noticed that Nano Server is a very cool subject for attendees also. Nice!

The presentation is available on SlideShare – check it, install the Nano Server and start rocking your datacenters! Smiješak

Cheers!

New Hyper-V books

If you are in search for something to read – there are two new Hyper-V books, written by my MVP colleagues, that I can recommend.

The first one is called Hyper-V Best Practices, written by Benedict Berger (Microsoft MVP), and it covers… well… best practices with Hyper-V. Smile

By reading this book, you’ll learn:

  • Install Hyper-V and virtual machines automated through PowerShell
  • Create High Availability solutions with failover clustering
  • Protect from disasters with Hyper-V Replica
  • Utilize the performance and scalability of storage virtualization
  • Build a flexible network infrastructure without physical boundaries
  • Design performance measurement and tuning action plans
  • Manage your Hyper-V stack with System Center
  • Move existing virtualization workloads to Hyper-V

You can find more about this book (and purchase it) here.

The second book is called Hyper-V Security, written by Eric Siron and Andy Syrewicze (Microsoft MVP).

By reading this one, you’ll learn:

  • Defend the network and disk resources that Hyper-V relies on
  • Control access to Hyper-V, both locally and remotely
  • Automate security policies using Group Policy
  • Leverage Hyper-V's isolation features to protect services while still providing necessary access to resources
  • Combine Hyper-V with external technologies to provide a strong defense-in-depth system
  • Identify and explain security needs to organization officials reluctant to provide proper funding
  • Protect your virtual infrastructure when System Center VMM is present
  • Make management of multiple on-premise private clouds and Azure-based public clouds more secure with App Controller

The “One ring”

It’s here! Finally!

As I’ve got the Microsoft MVP award for another year (beginning October), today I’ve received the (special) “blue ring” – my fifth year of being an MVP.

It has been a long road... full of excitements, events, friendships, travels, real-world issues… but it was fun!

Once again, I want to thank my girlfriend, my family, my fellow MVPs, my mentors, my colleagues (past and present), wonderful Microsoft people and everyone else who backed me up along this path - THANK YOU, you are the real MVPs, and this award is yours as well!

Now… let’s face the new “challenges”! Smile

Cheers!

Tjedan pun obaveza…

Protekli tjedan je završio sa ugodnim druženjem Microsoft Student Partnera u Toplicama Sveti Martin gdje smo proveli subotu i nedjelju.

Ovaj radni sastanak je započeo sa iznenađenjem – novi direktor Microsofta Hrvatska, Ivan Vidaković, nas je došao osobno pozdraviti i popričati s nama. Nakon toga smo se posvetili planiranju aktivnosti MSP programa. Drugog dana sastanka, imali smo priliku čuti i o MSP programu u ostalim europskim zemljama, o čemu nam je pričao Andrey Terekhov, Academic DPE Lead (Microsoft Central & Eastern Europe HQ). Drugi gost, Marko Drenovački, direktor Microsoft Innovation Centra u Varaždinu, također nas je posjetio u Toplicama. Uz nas su bili i Marko Sever, Tomislav Tipurić i Darko Jovišić iz Microsofta Hrvatska.

Radni tjedan prepun događanja u MIC-u je započeo dvodnevnim treningom Deana Vitnera, Microsoft MVP-a.  U ponedjeljak navečer je bio i redovni community sastanak, a predavao je Dean Vitner. Srijeda je bila dan za marketing – trening je imao Ivan Brezak Brkan, a u četvrtak i petak je gospođa Mira Fruk pričala o financijama i financijskim izvještajima.

Četvrtak smo većim dijelom proveli u Zagrebu – navečer je održan drugi community sastanak Web User Grupe, a detalje možete vidjeti ovdje.

U četvrtak sam još i saznao da sam izabran kao drugi IT Pro User Group Varaždin Lead – pomagati ću Velimiru da što bolje vodimo varaždinski i čakovečki community vidjeli, obavijest se nalazi i ovdje). 🙂

Evo, to je kratki pregled događanja u proteklom tjednu (bilo je toga još, ali ne volim (pre)dugačke postove); krećemo s pripremama za sljedeći...
