The December 2007 issue of TechNet Magazine is now available online at www.technetmagazine.com/issues/2007/12/.
In our final issue of 2007, we take a look at how business gets done in the era of Unified Communications.
Tony Smith begins with an overview of Exchange Server 2007 SP1 - a major update to the Exchange communications platform. Scott Schnoll continues with a drill-down into one of the major changes enabled by SP1 - Standby Continuous Replication - aimed at improving your disaster recovery architecture and minimizing downtime. Paul Bowden navigates through what you need to know to get Exchange up and running on Windows Server 2008, and Jeff Goodwin takes a deep dive into Exchange Unified Messaging.
In other Exchange coverage, the December issue features another in the award-winning series of posters from contributing editors Astrid & Martin McClean. While the hardcopy of the poster was only available in the print edition, a digital version is available for download. To receive future posters, be sure to subscribe to TechNet Magazine (free to qualified IT Pros in the US, and available for a nominal cost to cover shipping and handling around the world.)
In other features this month, Tom Cloward and Frank Simorjay offer a Guide to Basic Computer Forensics, Tim Rains shares highlights from this year's Microsoft Security Intelligence Report, and Christopher Stoneff goes hunting for an elusive network problem.
In addition, you'll find all of our regular columns including Security Watch with Derek Melber, Windows PowerShell with Don Jones, Hey, Scripting Guy! (along with a brand new Scripting Puzzle), The Cable Guy, The Desktop Files with Wes Miller, Windows Confidential with Raymond Chen, SQL Q & A, Romi Mahajan writing in Field Notes about The Fungible Future, and more - all available at www.technetmagazine.com.
