Office 365 and SkyDrive Hi, this is John O'Neill, Sr. from TrainSignal, and in this lesson we are going to examine Office 365 along with SkyDrive, and these are cloud technologies. You might have read that Steve Ballmer once famously quipped that when it come to the cloud, Microsoft was all in. Well, Windows 8 is a perfect representation of that philosophy, and it integrates more cloud features and systems than any OS before it. So, we are going to take a peek at these exciting new technologies that integrate perfectly with Windows 8 deployments. Well, let's get to the lesson.
User Settings Hello again. This is John O'Neill, Sr. , and in this lesson we are going to be taking a deeper look at User Settings and how they relate to Windows 8. You've heard me say it before, and you'll probably hear me say it again that user settings can make the difference between very happy users and very dissatisfied users, because it is those settings that turn a PC from just being a PC into their personal work tool. So, let's get at it.
Disaster Recovery Hi, this is John O'Neill, Sr. , and in this lesson I want to talk a bit about a subject that is critical to any IT Department in any organization, and that is what to do in the event of a disaster. And I'm not just talking about physical disasters, we could be discussing electronic disasters, or virtual disasters, ones that effect only information, the thing that we are entrusted to safeguard. What happens when users unintentionally alter a file? What happens when someone maliciously deletes a bunch of data from a system? These are all justifiable concerns and ones that we are going to take a look at in this lesson. So, with all that said, let's get to it.

Well, without any more ado whatsoever, let's get after it.
Introduction to the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Package Hello, this is John O'Neill, Sr. , from TrainSignal, and in this lesson we are going to begin a discussion about Microsoft's Desktop Optimization Pack, specifically the 2013 version of the product. Well, let's get to it. As usual, the elephant stomping around the room is the question of what exactly is the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack? Well, it is a product that's available to customers with software assurance that's designed to streamline deploying desktops, as well as simplifying the management and support of those desktops after they're deployed. IT pros love the product because it significantly simplifies the day to day support of Windows desktops. MDOP 2013 is actually a suite of 6 different tools, and I'm going to tell you what those tools are right now.
MDOP Virtualization Tools Hello, this is John O'Neill, Sr. , from TrainSignal, and in this lesson we are going to be taking a look at MDOP 2013's three virtualization technologies.
