How Microsoft Is Architecting the Virtual Application Infrastructure (Level 300)


Tuesday, June 02, 2009 9:30 AM Pacific Time (US & Canada)


Microsoft is evaluating Microsoft Application Virtualization 4.5 (App-V) as a method to lower application management life-cycle costs. Attend this webcast to learn how App-V 4.5, in conjunction with Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R2, provides an infrastructure for deploying virtualized rich client applications within an enterprise environment. When planned carefully, the same tools can be used to deploy a virtualized application that would normally deploy a desktop application.

TechNet Webcast: How to Manage Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager 2007 in Large Enterprises (Level 300)


Wednesday, June 10, 2009 1:00 PM Pacific Time (US & Canada)


Many companies manage significant deployments of System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) 2007 using its own management console, the DPM PowerShell command language, or the newly released Operations Manager 2007 management pack.  During this webcast, we’ll provide some high level information on each of these.  But large enterprises often require centralized management and reporting for multiple backup platforms, not only for multiple DPM servers, but across backup solutions from various vendors.  To facilitate that, Microsoft has partnered with Bocada, which offers centralized data protection management functionality across multiple protection products.  In this webcast, we’ll take a look at the centralized console for DPM 2007 that Bocada has created, as well as look at the seamlessly integrated monitoring of DPM and non-DPM backups within the Bocada solution.
