Be sure to stop by booth #108 next week to talk with the Pure Storage Solution Architects, Argenis Fernandez (@DBArgenis) and me, along with our “Alliance Guy”, “Cool SE” and a ton of other great team members. We will have one of our FlashArray’s available to check out along with a few other surprises. Say hi on Twitter using #IgniteItOrange!

I thought I would share some of the sessions I’m going to try (I emphasize try!) to attend.

Nano Server

Come hear about important transformations in Windows Server – the new installation option called Nano Server. Nano Server is a deep rethink of the server architecture. The result is a new, lean cloud fabric host and application development platform, resulting in 20x smaller than Server Core and a reduction in security attack service surface and reboots!
Speakers: Jeffrey Snover, Jeremy Chapman

Hacking with PowerShell

PowerShell is a helpful tool for IT professionals in order to automate administration of the Windows OS and applications. Unfortunately, threat actors have recently taken advantage of this powerful scripting language just because PowerShell it’s already installed on your Windows machine, trusted by Admins and most AntiVirus tools! The session presents the steps that should get you starting on (Ethical) Hacking and PenTesting with PowerShell.
Speakers: George Dobrea

Azure Site Recovery today supports disaster recovery from your Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V environments to Microsoft Azure.
