I had a chance to watch this amazing session delivered by one of our Principal Consultants Emile Cabot at MVPDays 2017.

He took some Fanless Xeon Servers and built them live during this 45-minute session and did an absolutely amazing job.

This session was a spin off from the Project Kepler design that Microsoft has at Ignite 2016.

You can check it out here it is also up on Channel 9 if you want the direct link.





No PowerPoint here! At this session, we’re going to take Storage Spaces Direct to commodity hardware, and build two Hyper Converged nodes with no moving parts. Without the roar of CPU or case fans, you will see the versatility of Server 2016 and discuss its role in the small and medium business.
