TRAINING: Windows Server 2008 R2 Hands-on Lab: BranchCache, RDS, Direct Access, Power Management – February 8, 2012

imageWindows Server 2008 R2 provides a productive server platform because it offers cost-effective virtualization, power saving capabilities, and a superior experience for end users.

In this Hands-on Lab we will focus on the Windows Server 2008 R2 features that enable Administrators to streamline access to data and applications, especially from remote locations: BranchCache, Remote Desktop Services and Direct Access. We will also review how IT administrators can better measure and manage power consumption.

During this lab, we will cover:

  • Implementing BranchCache: This new feature shipped in Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7, provides IT Pro with two options to setup a Branch Office Caching infrastructure:
      • Distributed Cache, is ideal when there isn’t a server at the branch office.
      • Hosted Cache, is a better option when there is a server at the branch Office.
  • Publishing application using Remote Desktop Services RemoteApp: Learn how Remote Desktop Services can help you to deploy applications and how to use the RemoteApp Manager to publish a new application to the Web Portal and also control user access to an application.
  • Direct Access and Power Management: Learn how DirectAccess makes it easier for users to securely access corporate data without having to establish a VPN. You will also learn how leverage Group Policy to manage power settings in servers and desktops.

What is a virtual hands-on-lab:
This isn’t your typical IT class. A hands-on lab online is an invite only event that combines LiveMeeting with a virtual lab. Attendees and presenters login from anywhere. Attendees watch a brief LiveMeeting presentation, then spend most of the time getting hands-on experience working through all, or just self-selected modules of the entire lab – at their own pace, and receive real–time, personal, one-on-one attention from the presenter. In addition, there’s a proctor available for technical support and to answer more attendee questions.
