In this Episode Didier and Carsten talk about the Backup Improvements in Hyper-V over the past releases. Didier use some very impressive visuals to explain the hole backup process including VSS Snapshots, SAN Snapshots, Change Block Tracking and so on. But this wouldn't be a Showcast if there weren’t a lot of Demos.
In this Episode of the Hyper-V Amigos Showcast we look at VMFleet. VMFleet is a free Microsoft test suite to show the performance of a Hyper-converged Storage Spaces Direct Setup. In this Episode Didier and Carsten show you how it works, how you measure with it and how you do the complemte setup. And all of this in just around 2 hours 😉
In this Episode Didier and Carsten talk about Enhancements in Remote Graphics: RemoteFX and Discrete Device Assignment. DDA allows the Administrator to assign a PCI device like an GPU exclusively to an VM. So watch this Showcast and lear all about it.
In this Showcast Didier and Carsten are playing with a Hyper-converged Storage Spaces Direct System with Windows Server 2016 installed. The show some crazsy performance numbers and even turn 2 of the 4 nodes off. While playing with the Cluster we see also some new Features like Distributed Storage QoS, Cluster and VM Isolation and Cluster Fairshare.
In this Episode Didier and I talk about some of the cool Failover Cluster improvements in Windows Server 2016 that Didier will present at the Cloud & Datacenter Conference Germany in May. We also talk a bit about that Conference and the Speaker Lineup that is in Didier words amazing. After that we tell you about an experience we both share that was truly mind blowing.

In this Episode I talk with my Hyper-V Amigos buddy Didier Van Hoye. Like me Didier is a Microsoft Cloud and Datacenter Management MVP and just received his fifth award. Hear Didier talk about his passion, when he started in computing, what it means to be an MVP and so many more things.
I hope you enjoy the podcast like I did.
My friend Didier and I were two weeks in the US to attend two great events – the VeeamON Conference at the end of October in Las Vegas and the Microsoft MVP Summit at the beginning of November in Redmond. Between those two exiting weeks Didier and I visited the Grand Canyon. Boy is this hole in the ground impressive. So we decided to make a video in front of this beautiful nature and of course talk about technical stuff. Because the view is so great we went to three different places to get the different angles on the Canyon.
