Next Wednesday, I will be speaking at one of the Microsoft MEA Academic Center events, In this event I will speak about the Private Cloud concepts and patterns, then delving on the Private Cloud Architecture using Microsoft Hyper-v and System Center then moving to the Private/Cloud user case and future innovations possibility.

from the event description:

In this session we will explore the cloud concepts and principles setting the ground for the cloud knowledge, then taking extra steps on how to build the private cloud using Windows Server 2012 and System center and finalizing
by integration and extensibility options of private, public and hybrid cloud and use cases.

I have built this session on top of the amazing session by Tom Schinder “Private Cloud Concepts and Patterns”, I believe that this session is the most important session in 2012, not because it contains valuable information but because it clearly defines what is the cloud, its architecture and the principles and concepts, then delving to the actual implementation and use case.
