Passed the 70-246 and 70-247 exams. Now officially MCSE 2012 Private Cloud

Yesterday and today I passed the 70-246 and 70-247 exams! Right now I’m officially Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert 2012 Private Cloud (MSCE 2012). After a couple of months preperation, reading books, reading blogpost and building, building and again building some lab environments, the big day was there!! After two hours, I hit the the final button….YES, passed the first exam! Today I also passed the second exam!

With the upcoming TechEd Europe 2013 event in Madrid, it’s a great timing to have the MSCE 2012 Private Cloud status in the pocket. Do you know where I’m going to dream about this night….right, my own private cloud!! 😉


Let’s play with System Center 2012 Service Pack 1 products!

With the upcoming release of Microsoft System Center 2012, Microsoft has published some pre-configured VHD files of the Microsoft System Center 2012 products, including Service Pack 1! The only thing you’ve to do is downloading the VHD’s and import them into you Hyper-V environment! This will save you a lot of time to configure it by your own.
