Microsoft is rolling out the 2012 courses for many of its newly soon to be released products, and we’re here to give you the lowdown on these highly anticipated courses. Let’s start it off with System Center 2012!
This is a brand new class developed and presented by Kent Agerlund, Microsoft MVP Configuration Manager. Next version of Configuration Manager will be released in 2012, but now can you get a solid training on its new features as well as the upgrade path from earlier version. This unique training is based on the latest release version, currently RC1, of the product and is the first and only in the market at this level.
This course describes how to plan and deploy a System Center 2012 Configuration Manager hierarchy, including the central administration site, one or more primary sites and secondary sites, and all associated site systems. This course also covers migration from System Center Configuration Manager 2007.
This course helps people prepare for exam 70-243
This five-day instructor-led course provides students with the knowledge and skills to configure and manage a System Center 2012 Configuration Manager site and its associated site systems in the role of Configuration Manager Administrators.
While we’re at it with the new System Center courses, let’s focus on the Cloud as well. Don’t forget, along with these new courses we have the Ohio Cloud Intelligence Conference coming up on April 3rd, 2012!
This course provides an overview of a private cloud infrastructure, the business and technical drivers behind the implementation, and how System Center 2012 can be used to monitor and operate the private cloud infrastructure. Students will learn how to configure and optimize a new business unit cloud as well as how to deploy pre-packaged applications and create a new service template to deploy a service into the cloud. Students will learn how System Center Operations Manager is used to monitor the various services that underpin the private cloud and will gain a deep insight into the Application Performance Monitoring (APM) feature of Operations Manager to monitor the performance and availability of an application. Students will learn about the core functionality of Service Manager and learn how to create and manage change requests, incidents, and release records as well as the security model behind Service Manager.
This course provides direction on producing a high-level design that accounts for requirements for the private cloud environment. Students will learn how to configure and deploy the application infrastructure, how to configure a preboot execution environment (PXE) server, an update server, and a software update baseline. Students will learn how to sequence and deploy an application virtually, and how to build the core components that are necessary for delivering services in the infrastructure. They will also allocate resources and grant access to the private cloud.
Let’s close this week out with another quick look at the SQL 2012 offerings!
See you next week!
