A Must Course for Every IT Pro

ITIL may sound as a boring topic but I cannot stress enough how important is. It is not needed to know it to the detail you just need to know enough to do your work which depends on your position. 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.

Disaster Recovery Solution with Orchestrator

Windows Server 2012 has out of the box a disaster recovery solution for virtual machines named Hyper-V Replica. Unfortunately this solution is not automated but luckily you can automate this solution whatever you like with System Center 2012 Orchestrator. Charles Joy from MSFT even offers free runbooks to the community to make that disaster recovery automated. He made two scenarios – one without using the other System Center components and other where he uses SCSM to initiate the failover. Actually the solution is documented with documents and video. You can directly implement the runbooks in your environment or you can change them to fit your needs. It is up to you to make the logic. The solution is pretty fast and most important free if you have Windows Server 2012 and Orchestrator 2012. I’ve seen a solutions for Disaster Recovery that cost a significant amount of money and in the end they are hard to configure, 1 of 3 cases failed during failover and have certain limitations. So I suggest grab this solution from here and make your Disaster Recovery.
