Virtually Free

Get the latest update rollup package for the Hyper-V role in Windows Server 2008 R2 and be sure to bookmark the Windows Virtualization Team Blog. Be sure to check out blog World Simplified is a Virtual World. And doncha evah neglect application virtualization, such as the goodness at the App-V Product Team Blog.  

 

Let's Optimize Some Desktops (Assuming You Have Gone Full Cloud Yet)

Check out The Official Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP) Blog where you can get cool tools like the Diagnostics and Recovery Toolset (DART), currently in its v7 beta release.

 

We Can Always Perform a Little Better

Have you checked out the Ask the Performance Team blog yet. You should! Then there's the Microsoft Enterprise Networking Team blog. And if you're looking for help with the Windows Server Core, be sure to check out the Ask the Core Team blog. Excellent stuff! As the Tool Time columnist at SQL Server Magazine, I'm always on the lookout for great free tools that get on-going support from their creators. One common experience is finding a nice debugging tool, only to discover that there's no information on how to interpret the debugger result sets! (SQLIOSim anyone?) That's why I love the Microsoft Advanced Windows Debugging and Troubleshooting blog. Another must-have on your Favorites list.  

Enjoy!

quite agree, but I find many DBAs don't seem to get involved with Windows and such these days, or maybe I don't just meet the right DBAs !!  I also include the networking and cluster teams on my blog watch.
