Presented by Boon Tee, SBS-MVP

The largest diversity in the Australian Business sector is found in the micro and small business sector. In businesses with 1-20 employees, business owners have their hands full contending with their competitors, fully focused on staying that one step ahead.
This event explores the challenges faced in providing IT services to this business sector, where the loss of a PC could be disastrous, and a crippled home ADSL link could shut down a business for the day.
The impending releases of Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V and Essentials bring a host of fresh new features to the world of virtualisation for the small business. This session will examine these new features and look at how these new features can be used in the small business scenario.
