Deploying Microsoft Cluster Services Windows 2012 R2 Version

This course will examine the types and uses of Microsoft's high-availability solutions provided in Windows Server including Network Load Balancing for Front-end and Clustering for Back-end servers in a Microsoft-based Server Farm. Through lecture, demonstration, and hands-on workshops, attendees will install, configure, and troubleshoot Microsoft Clustering Services (MSCS) and build a high-availability solution. Network applications such as file & print sharing, Microsoft SQL Server, Internet Information Server (IIS), Hyper-V, Windows SharePoint Services, and Volume Shadow Copy Services (VSS) will be deployed during the course. This is the Windows 2012 R2 version. An alternate version using Windows 2008 R2 is also available.
Attendees should have prior experience with Windows Server Operating Systems. Foundation courses in Windows Server and TCP/IP are assumed. This is not an entry level course. This course is completed in a virtual environment, so familiarity with VMWare or Hyper-V is helpful.
