I write to you today with an invite to our upcoming IT Camps, and to the System Center 2012 Launch.

Today we're announcing three new IT Camp topics - enabling the consumerisation of IT (one-day workshop) preparing your datacenter for the private cloud (one-day workshop), and implementing the private cloud (two-day workshop).

We are presenting each of these workshops in Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch. Our first set of IT Camps, covering Virtualisation, became fully-booked in just two days - so make sure to register a seat as soon as possible!

Never heard of an IT Camp? These are one- or two-day workshops that offer deep-dive technical training. Join your peers for a hands-on, highly-interactive and engaging learning experience around Microsoft technologies and solutions. Have real-world discussions and work with technology experts and your peers to solve scenario-based problems.

And finally, I would like to invite you to join us for the System Center 2012 Launch. Come along to see what the future of cloud computing looks like, now.

 i.t. camp - preparing your datacenter for the private cloud

Is your core Windows Server Infrastructure outdated and clinging to the x86 server architecture? The time is now to move the critical services this infrastructure supports to new more modern hardware along with the current supported revisions of the Windows Server Platform. Bring your questions on essential services such as Active Directory, Group Policy, DHCP, DNS, File/Print, Certificate Services and Hyper-V virtualization to this unique Microsoft event where we will SHOW you real life answers to real life questions. No death by Powerpoint here. This camp will provide you with interactive demos and hone your skills in a hands-on lab environment - migrating x86 Windows Server 2003 servers to x64 Windows Server 2008 R2.

The cloud is coming, but are you prepared to transform your datacenter to the next shift in enterprise computing? This camp will prepare you to understand, deploy and manage a Microsoft Private Cloud with System Center 2012. See how you can combine hardware, software and management processes to update your datacenter to gain new levels of automation, elasticity, resource virtualization, efficiency and self-service. Dozens of technologies will be covered, including Windows Server, Hyper-V, Solutions Accelerators, and the System Center 2012 suite.

Two-day workshop:

New Zealand's IT infrastructure is going through a change, and Microsoft wants to be there with you. Cloud computing is the future and having the right tools in place to manage cloud environments will be critical for IT Departments of the future. Microsoft's Private Cloud solutions are built with an eye to what's next, and we believe that whether it's today or years from now, you are going to need more from your IT infrastructure. Please join us for the System Center 2012 launch to see what the future of cloud computing looks like, now.
