Hyper-V Program Manager
It seems like all I am talking about right now is our posters – but this is too cool to not mention. Hopefully, as a reader of my blog you are well familiar with the highly detailed Windows Server architectural posters that we have been releasing over the last couple of years. Well – you can now get these all on your computer as a Windows 8 application:
The Server Posterpedia (you can grab it from the Windows Store or from here: http://aka.ms/sposterpedia) includes all the posters we have ever released in an easy to navigate and use manner. We have also put up a short video demo of what this app looks like in action here:
One final note – if you are using this on a touch device, you can use pinch and zoom to jump into all of the details. If you are on a mouse-and-keyboard computer – you can use ctrl + mouse wheel to zoom in and out on each of the posters.
Any idea when the server 2012 posters come out!
The hyper v one is brilliant!
Hi, this app looks fantastic. I've tried to install it, but there is no install button in the Windows 8 Store. Is it only available in the US? I'm in NZ.
It seems in cant zoom in & the text is unreadable if you are using a laptop
may be it will look ok on a large screen .
Have installed these and am sure they'd be great as big, printed posters... but I think the requirement can be better-met with a rich online exploration of the topics, using simple animations and links between topics. If I had the time, I'd have a go at creating a Prezi-type zoomable space around these topics to illustrate what I mean. Maybe someone closer to the Microsoft tech communication world could do this with the next set of technologies?
So, these "server posters" are basically just some large images that could be distributed as png or svg files. Instead, if I want to see them I need to install an app that serves no purpose but to view only these images?
