Oslo Spektrum, Oslo
Welcome to Oslo – the capitol of Norway, and to Oslo Spektrum which lies in the very centre.
NIC2012 will be held in the very centre of Oslo, at Oslo Spektrum. Today, some 70 per cent of the public performances presented at Oslo Spektrum are cultural and entertainment events. For most people, the arena is probably associated with large-scale concerts and shows featuring international performers.
Conferences/congresses and corporate events have also become increasingly important for Oslo Spektrum. International arrangements as ESSKA, Norwegian State Railways’ 150th Anniversary celebrations and Orkla’s 350th Anniversary celebrations provide good examples of this. The arena is used for plenary sessions and exhibitions, supplemented by smaller conference suites and rooms at the hotels, thus providing a full range of facilities for organisers of events of this nature.
The location of the building, a short walk from public transport nodes and 2,000 hotel rooms makes Oslo Spektrum an attractive city centre alternative for congresses and trade fairs. There are numerous multi-storey parking facilities in the vicinity of the concert arena. The nearest overnight accommodation can be found at the Radisson Blue Plaza Hotel, Terminal, Thon Hotels, Clarion Hotel Royal Christiania and Oslo hotels.

Virtualization & CloudWe want to clarify the cloud:-) Private cloud, Public cloud, PaaS, Saas, Azure, Office365, Hyper-V. There are still a lot of confusion when it comes to the cloud and the services provided. Now we see products that are ready for the customer, and they are moving big time already. We will show you the products, explain the difference between them, and how they really work and what you should consider before going there. Hyper-V comes with new exciting features, and combined with other products the Hyper-V platform needs to be considered. We will show you why.

We will also spend much time on problem-solving, going through the top warnings and errors, and hopefully solve them..
