Hyper-V Amigos Show Cast – Episode 22 – SMB QUIC

The Hyper-V Amigos are back! It has been a while since our last webinar but we want to make these again more frequently and will try to find the time to do so.

Saturday, February 12t 2022. Carsten Rachfahl (@hypervserver)and Didier Van Hoye (@WorkingHardInIT) live-streamed a webinar on YouTube and Twitter, available for online viewing right here. We discuss SMB over QUIC; a new Microsoft introduced to SMB in Windows Server Datacenter: Azure Edition. Didier has a soft spot for SMB over QUIC and dives into his lab to show it to you. We'll position the technology from both a user's and technologist's perspective and run you through a lab setup. We also discuss some barriers to adoption and show how 3rd party businesses (visualitynq.com) are addressing this while opening SMB over QUIC up to the world. Yes, you will be able to consume SMB over QUIC from almost any device and OS. Take a look!

Reach out to us and let us know if you like the format. It is just us two discussing technology. There is no selling, no marketing, just us thinking aloud and sharing our views.

The Hyper-V Amigos Showcast Episode 2: Unmap

imageLast Sunday Didier and I recorded our second Episode of “The Hyper-V Amigo Showcast”. This time we discussed the Unmap Feature in Windows Server 2012 and R2. Didier is so fortunate that his employer has a Dell Compellent SAN Storage that really shines with Unmap. So we took the opportunity to demonstrate a lot of the Unmap feature.

I wish you fun!


P.S.: Here are the posts Didier mentioned in the Showcast:

The Hyper-V-Amigos Episode 1: Who we are


My Friend and Hyper-V MVP college Didier Van Hoye (also known as @WorkingHardInIT) and I (known as @hypervserver) had a creasy idea: doing a Showcase and here comes the problem: in English. So we did our first Episode of “The Hyper-V Amigos” Showcase where we talk about “how we are” and “how we “stranded in IT”.

I hope you have the same fun watching the video than we had recording it.

P.S.: The Intro is spoken by another MVP Kerstin Rachfahl. Unfortunately she is not a Hyper-V MVP but you can’t have everything (and I love here anyway).
