PHIWUG – Windows Server 2008 R2 Community Launch

The Philippine Windows Users Group just finished the 2009 events, capping that off with this half day TechNet event

Windows Server 2008 R2, built on the foundation of Windows Server 2008, helps organizations reduce costs, enable anywhere access and lessen bandwidth costs. Join the Philippine Windows Users Group as they welcome Windows Server 2008 R2 in their community. See them showcase the different technologies of Windows Server 2008 R2 such as Live Migration and DirectAccess!

Tony and Faelmar Tanada, doing the last minute prep work. Those are live demos, this is so exciting!!

Then Tony gave the introductions and the synopsis of this session. Crowd is getting bigger by the minute 😀


Bong, gave the first demo on Terminal Services, as I said, TS has gone along way from 2008 to 2008 R2. And Adrian, another PHIWUG MVP, showing off some tricks and how-tos in branch cache.

My session was about Fail-over clustering. Showed off the new Live Migration – new in Windows Server 2008 R2. Also did a failover cluster demo and of course never miss out a chance to show off the new System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2 😀 I really wish this had been a longer session.

Terrence turn for Direct Access, wew Terrence!


Got to thank Norman Jose, Pauvi and Marvin for the usual support for PHIWUG.

We had a guest also! Its Tovia Va’aelua! (The new Server Product Manager for PH) He is from New Zealand and PHIWUG welcomed him in today, so Welcome Totoy! (His new nickname daw in PH 😀 )

All photos are being uploaded at this skydrive:

This event is really a sort of TEASER for the things to come in 2010, we will be doing alot more of those demo’s and its goin to be from planning to scratch installs to the actual management. So do check the site every once in a while, we will be posting our upcoming events there. Its gonna be a great year again and HOPE TO SEE YOU GUYS ON ANOTHER PHIWUG EVENT! HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!
