Integration becomes vital in order for your core business applications to maintain business flow and efficiency. How do you achieve identity integration? Run Open Source Software (OSS) on Windows Server® 2008? Ever wanted to leverage the power of SQL with your PHP applications?

If you answered yes this road show is for you! Here is what we will be talking about.


Session 1:  Windows Server 2008 Active Directory Interop with Linux and OS X

Do you have existing Linux workstations and servers? Are you buying Apple notebooks for your personnel? If so, then you're probably wondering how to secure and share information across your organization. Join us for a session that demonstrates how to authenticate and manage non-Windows operating systems. We'll explore Active Directory (AD) extensions, management tools, security, file sharing, desktop management and a number of other key challenges we all face on a daily basis. Get set for some great demonstrations and plenty of time for questions and answers.

Session 2:  Running Open Source Software (OSS) on Windows Server 2008

Are you afraid to run open source software on Windows Server 2008? Fear no more; it's easier than you think. Come discuss running LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) on Windows Server 2008. Not interested in Linux? No problem. You'll also learn how to run open source applications with IIS7, MySQL and PHP. Along the way, we'll compare and contrast the optimum maintenance, operation and monitoring of these diverse systems and applications. This session will include several informative demonstrations and you'll get plenty of time to ask questions.

Session 3:  SQL Server 2008 and PHP Web Application Infrastructure

Do you want to take advantage of SQL Server's great new features for your PHP sites? Join us for this session and learn how to make it happen. We'll show you how to leverage your existing development resources and PHP knowledge by simply changing the backend to Microsoft SQL Server 2008. We'll walk through the necessary steps to get PHP and SQL Server working together and you'll see how to enjoy a successful deployment and post-deployment experience. You'll also learn where to find the information you need when you deploy and scale PHP on SQL Server, including details about security, performance, backup, managing and monitoring. After the step-by-step deployment instructions and some helpful working demos, we'll be happy to entertain your questions.
