Software-defined networking (SDN) can streamline data center implementation through self-service provisioning, take the complexity out of network management, and help increase security with fully isolated environments. Windows Server 2012 R2 and System Center 2012 R2 are being used with SDN implementations in some of the largest data centers in the world, and this Jump Start can help you apply lessons learned from those networks to your own environment.
From overall best practices to deep technical guidance, this training gives you what you need to get started, plus in-depth Q&A with top experts who have real-world SDN experience. Understand how Microsoft is bringing its learnings from operating some of the largest data centers in the world to your data center through Windows Server and System Center.

Learn about the Microsoft vision of software-defined networking from one of the lead Windows Server Architects. See how Windows Server and System Center can be used to centrally manage physical and virtual networks and how best practices were taken from Windows Azure to deliver a virtualized network without boundaries.
See how Microsoft solutions can be used to manage data center networking though abstraction and centralized management. Learn about extensibility, features, workload focus, and ecosystem integration with Windows Server and System Center Virtual Machine Manager.
Learn about the different options to extend your network to the Microsoft cloud. Understand common scenarios covering IPsec, WAN connections, and hybrid cloud, and see how ExpressRoute can provide a private, dedicated, high-throughput network between Windows Azure and on-premises networks.
See different ways to optimize your network for virtual machines. After reviewing the basic virtualization architecture, learn about Receive Side Scaling (RSS), Virtual Receive Side Scaling (vRSS), Virtual Machine Queue (VMQ), NIC Offloading, NIC Teaming, and Quality of Service (QoS) features.
Please peruse this section for additional information that supports this Jump Start event. This is an opportunity for you to dive deeper into defined networking with Windows Server and System Center at your own pace.
