As an infrastructure and security architect, John Craddock has been involved in enterprise systems since the early days of Windows NT. His passion is for determining how things really work and then designing and deploying the most effective systems. John presented on Active Directory at one of the first Windows 2000 launch conferences in Geneva; of course this was only after delving deep into its inner workings. Now it’s time for Windows Server 2012 Active Directory to be scrutinized. Come to this demo-packed session and discover what Windows Server 2012 Active Directory has to offer. Learn about virtualizing and cloning DCs, GUI improvements for password policies and the recycle bin, new Kerberos features, and more.
Continuing from Overview, Part 1: Windows 8 offers a huge leap forward when it comes to security capability and took three years to get there, so what type of security improvements can you expect to see in a one-year project like Blue? You’ll be surprised! Come join us to learn about the improvements that Blue will offer in domains such as Malware Resistance, Data protection, and Access Control.
This session is based on but not limited to a true story at a large customer. We assume the participants have working knowledge of SharePoint 2013, SQL Server 2012 and Windows Azure, and we'll concentrate on all the non-core technologies that are essential for a successful BI project on Azure. We'll review storage, networking, Kerberos delegation, the BI components of SQL Server and their placement inside of a SharePoint farm, availability, and the management and the possible re-use of the items of a farm.
