TechEd: Monday

Apart from the highly irritating and overloud "entertainment" video playing before the key note started the conference start was OK.

No major announcements – most already came through at PDC last week but new to me were:

Application Virtualisation eventually will be expanded to cover server based applications such as Exchnage, SQL Server or SharePoint

System Center Operations Manager in R2 (beta this month) will be expanded to manage Linux, AIX, HPUX etc using open-wsman and openpegasus.  Can also define SLAs

Identity LifeCycle Manager is now in Release Candidate

Intelligent Application Gateway SP2 in available

Windows 2008 R2 has some cool features:

  • Hyper-V Live migration
  • Best practice Analyser is model based
  • PowerShell V2
  • Direct Access – get to apps and data across Internet without VPN
  • Branch cache – save bandwidth
  • BitLocker for USB drives and memory sticks

Next version of SQL Server will have a self service BI capability – "Gemini"
