Preparing for Microsoft TechDays 2010

Posted: 20th March 2010 by Christoffer Andersson in Uncategorized

So it’s been almost a year since I posted to the blog. (Lots of things has happened since then, I will try to catch up with the most interesting things that I think is worth sharing) It’s early in the morning and I have spent the entire night playing with Direct Access, Network Access Protection and Server/Domain Isolation in combination. I will speak at Microsoft TechDays (In Örebro) next week. Having one session together with Danwei Tran, Evangelist at Microsoft and also a very good friend of mine, the concept of the session is to drilldown into the topic “How to take advantage of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 today” most sessions I’ve seen on Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 speaks about new technology and features, how cool it is and how easy it is to implement, without taking the existing legacy environment in concern, it’s like who? Doesn’t everyone flatten there environment and rebuild it with the latest bits as soon it gets released from Microsoft.

Back to our reality, we’re going to be stuck with previous releases for about another decade. So how do we integrate and take advantage of technology released within Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 today? The session covers: – How to benefit from BitLocker Drive-Encryption enhancements in Windows 7, without touching your server infrastructure. – How Authentication Assurance leverages security (even to your down-level clients) by only upgrading your domain controllers to Windows Server 2008 R2. – How to integrate my existing deployments of NAP, DI/SI with Direct Access in Windows 7 and Window Server 2008 R2 and why should I? If this sounds interesting look for the session: Take advantage of Windows 7 & Windows Server 2008 R2

For those who looking forward to hear me speak about AD again, I’m sorry I don’t do any sessions on AD this year at TechDays but of course I will be around to discuss AD as much you want, you probably find me where you find the bar J
