As mentioned in a previous post, I’ve been writing a series of articles for the Microsoft Australia Partner Team on certification strategies.

The latest one on Virtualization is now live, and it’s full of information that’s useful whether you are building out an internal test environment for virtualization projects, or preparing for the related Microsoft exams. The build and test environment here at Intunedin is currently running on top of Windows Server 2008 R2, Hyper-V and System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2, with some System Center Operations Manager 2007 and System Center Configuration Manager 2007 thrown in for good measure. The better equipped you are to be able to build out new images and test scenarios in an automated fashion, the more productive you will be.
