Azure Stack and Azure Stack HCI Day - Overview

Welcome to MVPDays Online 2020 featuring content from Microsoft MVP’s from around the globe. Today’s show focuses on content related to Microsoft’s Azure Stack HCI and Storage Spaces Direct.   We have run these shows before, and with COVID-19, it has never been more important to focus on Security, so that is what we did with this show.   Over 60 % of the sessions are dedicated to Ransomware protection and hardening of environments to prevent threat actors from gaining access to our most critical resources.

 

Co-Hosts of this show are Dave and Cristal Kawula (MVP’s).   They are also the Co-Founders of MVPDays community roadshow, MVPDays Online, Blog at www.checkyourlogs.net , Founders of the MVPDays Scholarship fund and much more.

 

You can follow Dave and Cristal on Social Media – @Davekawula @SuperCristal1 @MVPDays #MVPHour #MVPDays

During the show, feel free to ask questions and be sure to follow our excellent speakers.

 

Our lineup of sessions looks like this:
