Just a quick post to mention that Windows Server 2012 Standard and Datacenter editions are now available on the Dreamspark website for students. I’d really recommend anyone studying IT at Edge Hill hops over there and grabs a copy of Datacenter edition, throws it on a computer and has a play with Hyper-V. Virtualization skills are massively in demand in the IT sector at the moment so it’s a really good idea to brush up on them, even better to do it on the latest version of the product.
Dreamspark is free to sign up for and you can verify your account using your Edge Hill email address. Just be aware the downloads are pretty big so you’ll want a decent sized USB stick/external drive on hand. Enjoy!
