There is a ITIL course on the MVA titled System Center 2012 R2: ITIL for IT Pros which is the right amount of ITIL information to get started and very good presented. Even though I am ITIL certified I’ve still watched it as there is always something new and useful you can learn. Check it out as soon as you can.

MVP Pete Zerger and Microsoft Sr. Technical Evangelist Symon Perriman will focus on bringing a greater understanding to key topics related to the fabric – such as virtual networking, leveraging the storage and networking capabilities of Windows Server 2012, and creating service templates in VMM and on the Service Manager CMDB as we move up the management stack. Additionally, you will learn how the service-catalog comes together to deliver an intuitive self-service experience in a step-by-step approach that will address many common questions.

Day 2: Moving from Private to Hybrid Cloud with System Center 2012 and Windows Azure IaaS

This June 20 Jump Start is a continuation of Day 1 and will focus on successfully monitoring and managing ongoing operation of a private cloud environment.

MVP Pete Zerger and Technical Product Manager Matt McSpirit will provide examples of how to integrate Windows Azure IaaS into our private cloud to deliver hybrid cloud capabilities in System Center 2012 SP1, explain how to develop hybrid cloud self-service scenarios in System Center 2012 App Controller and in the System Center Service Manager Self-Service Portal, and demonstrate full integration of private and public cloud with ITIL.
