The Hyper-V Rockstar website was developed to provide Information Technology professionals all over the world with a resource they can use to build out their own infrastructure using Microsoft’s virtualization solutions. With the release of Windows Server 2012 & 2012 R2, the demand for Hyper-V skills has exploded, and we hope this site will help bridge the gap as Hyper-V increasingly becomes the platform of choice.
On this site you will find blog posts with video discussions and demonstrations, as well as written posts providing additional guidance. Content will primarily focus on Hyper-V, Failover Clustering, and System Center Virtual Machine Manager. You will also find a fair amount of PowerShell coverage pertaining to the management of these products.
