You learn to build domain controllers, file servers, remote desktop servers, advanced networking, Hyper-V, storage spaces direct, and much more. In just 3 days you learn almost every part of Windows Server 2016. You start with a set of PowerShell scripts and the Windows Server 2016 ISO, and in the end of the training you have a full infrastructure running.

Mikael has developed the lab based on real-life experience when building Private Clouds and Datacenters. You will receive all the scripts so that you can rerun all the exercises when you get back from training, or modify them so that they can be used in your environment.
