AlignIT IT Manager Podcast #42–Virtualization with Jeff Woolsey

Jeff_Woolsey_thumbLast week when my colleague Jonathan Rozenblit and I were at TechDays Toronto, we had the opportunity to sit down with Jeff Woolsey, the Principal Program Manager Lead for Windows Server Virtualization at Microsoft. During our chat we talk about virtualization (of course!), but we also discuss managing your systems, taking advantage of the public cloud and automating tasks with PowerShell and why that is important for both sys admins and developers.

Jeff’s challenge to anyone evaluating virtualization products and wondering how Hyper-V, a free server role in Windows Server, can stack up against VMware, a product you pay for: try Hyper-V for yourself or have your team try it out. If you don’t like it, then fine. But you may be surprised at all it has to offer and if your team is already using Windows Server, there is the added bonus of training cost savings.

Sit back, have a listen and enjoy!
