These are the topics on this first meeting:
Office Communications Server 2007
As part of the inaugural Infrastructure User Group, Terry Chapman from Fujitsu New Zealand will present on deploying Microsoft Enterprise Voice using Office Communications Server 2007 and Exchange 2007 Unified Messaging.
Terry Chapman (CISSP, VCP, MCTS, MCSE, FCNSP) is a Principal Consultant with Fujitsu New Zealand. He leads the Unified Communications practice within Fujitsu NZ which has recently become a Microsoft Voice specialised partner along with being the first Microsoft partner in New Zealand to have deployed OCS 2007 R2 internally. Terry works across most of Fujitsu’s customer base and has many years of experience with a range of clients in the public and private sectors both in New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
Hyper-V | The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly
With the imminent release of Server 2008 R2, and the licensing benefits it can offer, Hyper-V is becoming an increasingly popular option for a virtualisation platform. As a result, the question system implementers are being asked is “Hyper-V or VMWare?”
This presentation will discuss some of the key benefits of virtualisation, and how Hyper-V manages them when compared with VMWare – what it does well (the good), what it doesn’t do so well (the bad), and some of the traps that implementers and administrators can find themselves facing (the ugly).
We will also discuss some of the features of the soon to be release R2 and how they move Microsoft’s virtualisation offering ever closer to matching VMWare’s feature-set.
