Windows 7 DirectAccess and BranchCache Presentation Resources

I had an amazing time at IT Pro TikiHut event with Blain Barton. Thank you to SCC for space and awesome A/V setup for us.

Thank you to Microsoft Spring Board Series for Sponsoring this event. Check them out here!

There are lots of videos and walkthoughs here related to the two topics I discussed and other topics from the event.

In case this is not enough, here are some more:

I find these features highly anticipated for Enterprise consumers. I find them valuable means of seamless access to machines and reducing load on WAN.

For people who can't wait to try or start using this kind of always-connected capability, you can use a program called VPN Dialer 2009 which is widely available just by looking for it on any search engine. It is not a direct equivalent, but it does allow setting up a persistent VPN link from Windows XP/Vista to any RRAS server using a standard VPN user account over IPv4, and keeps it connected even when no user is logged on, for as long as the remote system has power and Internet access.
