We have the opportunity to hold two training sessions in Australia but need your prompt feedback to gauge interest and hence justify efforts to bring them to you.

1) System Centre for Hosting Partners, 3 days - November 23-25: this will provide hands on training on the deployment of System Centre Operations Manager, Config Manager, Data Protection Manager and Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) in a multi-domain, multi-tenant server farm.  It’s a 3 day course costing $150 per person per day.

2) Dynamic Data Centre for Hosters FastStart Boot camp, 4 days - December 7-10 or December 14-17: This boot camp will be a pre-requisite for Service Providers being included as a reference in the “Private Cloud Infrastructure Roadshow” planned for early 2010.  The boot camp will be hands on and step attendees through the deployment of the Dynamic Data Centre toolkit (http://www.microsoft.com/hosting/dynamicdatacenter/Home.html).  Again the cost is $150 per person per day.

Please email philme@microsoft.com indicating your interest – “Yes, we’ll send someone to <this> or <that> or both courses and preferred data for Boot camp is <December 7 or December 14>” or “maybe” or “No, not at all”.
