With MMS 2013  just around the corner, one of the most exciting aspects of the event this year is the focus on some of the new CISCO gear (Nexus 1000V and Cisco UCS) and Microsoft Hosting solutions (SPF System Center, and Windows Azure). As a leading Managed Services Provider,  and System Integrator,  these technologies will have a direct impact on how we are going to do business in the future.

So I am really looking forward to the following breakout sessions and instructor-led labs to experience the new System Center 2012 for Hosters Experience:

AM-B304 Enabling Hosted IaaS Clouds Using System Center 2012 SP1 with Windows Server by John Ballard and Marc Umeno

IM-B203 Building UI Add-Ins for System Center 2012 SP1 Virtual Machine Manager by Jonobie Ford

IM-B291 Cisco Virtual Networking Solutions for Microsoft Hyper-V Environments by Appaji Malla and Chakri Avala

IM-B394 Automate your Infrastrucutre: Programmatic Management of Cisco UCS with Microsoft System Center and PowerShell by Eric Williams and Jason Shaw

IM-IL302 Creating a Web Farm for Multi-Tenant Application

IM-L307 System Center 2012: Cloud Management

Of course, there are many other great sessions this year and even if you are not attending, you can follow the event on Twitter using the #MMS2013 hash tag and watch live and recorded sessions for the first time on MSDN Channel 9! http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/MMS/2013

I will be there and I am looking forward to connecting and chatting on System Center and other cool things.
