We also launched the new PHIWUG logo, design still courtesy of the MVP that designed our previous and first logo: Jay-R Barrios!

As always, Microsoft Philippines greeted us with their welcome and to start of the event here we invited MS PH Server and Tools lead for MS PH Joel Garcia giving his welcome-welcome and hellos.

Our first PHIWUG tech presenter is non other than Faelmar “Bong” Tanada who came all the way from the seminary in the mountains – showing off running server core and extending it to a disk-less implementation.

MVP for Enterprise Security – Milo Pacamara discussed how secure are you, producing demos that penetrates the old Windows XP and other operating systems even new and then how Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8 handles these threats.

Our next tech discussion is led by Ren Narvaez, our newest addition to the core team of PHIWUG and he now shares whats the newest way to Manage group of servers even a whole data center in one console in the server manager dashboard – speaking from being an MCT and a full time server administrator.

Lastly, I had to discuss the environment that is used for demo. We used the new Windows Server Hyper-V and what are the lastest enhancements on Server 2012 in terms of Virtualization and Cloud.

We used a number of Machines including this Fujitsu rack mount server with 32GB of Ram with Intel Xeon processors to do live migrations, shared nothing and moving of virtual machines.

We promised that we will post the step by step guide on how we did the setup that the WDS boots diskless servers that run hyper-v roles (we will, promise). These virtualization servers that were used were being managed by one server manager. These is PHIWUG’s version of a private cloud infrastructure thanks to the Hyper-V over SMB and shared nothing migration feature!

Also many thanks to the man behind the scenes (and the cameras) for his support in the event, most importantly the technical assistance (I almost skipped a heart beat when my new Cougar-Sapphire Machine died! Good thing he is there to kick-start it again) thanks MVP Adrian Rodriguez!  Look at our sole photo with him with Tim, he doesn’t really seem to want to be in front of the camera hahaha!
