Teched hands on lab – behind the scenes.

A 3 or 4 minute video on the infrastructure behind the 900 machines used to build the hands on labs at TechEd. It was interesting to see that most of the main servers were all virtual servers and that the virtual images stored on the lab pc’s themselves were deployed using Ghost but the actual OS of the desktop was deployed using Windows Deployment Services (WDS). I’ve never been to TechEd but hope to go one day but it makes me wonder what they used to do before virtual machines existed?

    Before VM’s (circa 2001) stuff was run on metal, and imaged over and over and over again…..the lab was nothing more than a sandbox of machines that may or may not work, depending on what the person did before you.
