Dev & IT Pro Days: Learn about the upcoming Longhorn Server Technology

Yesterday I posted how to get PowerShelled during the Dev & IT Pro days. Today I want to point you to the different Longhorn Server sessions we are planning during the event.


During the Pre-conference Ronald Beekelaar will talk about the new Hypervisor Virtualization Technology in Longhorn Server.

During the main conference we will have 4 session with a Longhorn focus:

An Administrator's Guide to Internet Information Services (IIS) 7

Be one of the first to take a look at all the changes coming in the new redesigned IIS 7. This session will focus on new troubleshooting features, a breakdown of architecture and security improvements and the new IIS 7 configuration system. Walk through some demos showcasing IIS delegation administration control to non-administrators and new diagnostics tools. Also featured are the entirely new User Interface (UI) and updated Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) provider.

What’s New in Windows Server “Longhorn”

In this session, David Lowe, senior product manager for Windows Server, will present an overview of the new and enhanced features of Windows Server “Longhorn”. You will learn how Windows Server “Longhorn” provides more control, greater flexibility and increased protection to allow IT professionals to spend less time managing and maintaining their infrastructures, and more time using the new features to add business value. You will see demonstrations of many of the product’s new technologies, including IIS 7.0, Server Core, Active Directory, Terminal Services and Server Manager.

Server Core: Running a Minimal Server

Server Core is a new minimal installation option included in Windows Server “Longhorn”. A Server Core installation provides a minimal environment for running specific server roles Active Directory (AD), Domain Name System (DNS), Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), WINS, Media Services, and File, reducing the servicing and management requirements and the attack surface for those server roles. In this session, we will discuss the reasons we are developing Server Core, the architecture of Server Core, as well as installation, configuration and administration of Server Core.

Windows Server 'Longhorn' Terminal Services: Overview

During this session Arlindo will dive into many of the new features in Terminal Services. We will explain how the new Terminal Services Gateway will provide secure remote access to the Terminal Server based application.See the Terminal Services Remote programs and the new PnP Device Re-direction in action and learn about the new single sign-on capabilities.After this session you should be able to articulate the value of the new features of Longhorn Terminal Services.

The first three Longhorn sessions will be delivered by David Lowe who is a Senior Product Manager for the Windows Server group in Redmond. David was also a very well rated speaker at the TechEd event in Barcelona. The last Longhorn (Terminal Services) session will be delivered by Me.
