Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Robert McMillen. Welcome to my course Securing Windows Server 2016 Virtualization. I'm an adjunct college professor, Microsoft certified trainer, and technology consultant. Hyper-V is Microsoft's virtual machine application in Windows Server 2016. This course is all about securing virtual machines in Hyper-V. A general understanding about virtual machines is encouraged prior to beginning this course. Some of the major topics that we will cover include installing your first virtual machine in Hyper-V, encrypting your virtual machines, protection of user credentials, and just-in-time administration. By the end of the course, you'll understand how to install, configure, and secure virtual machines using Hyper-V in Windows Server 2016. From here, you can continue your learning with courses on clustering virtual machines and virtual desktop infrastructure. I hope you'll join me in this course of Securing Windows Server 2016 Virtualization, at Pluralsight.
