Virtualization, Cloud, Infrastructure and all that stuff in-between

My ramblings on the stuff that holds it all together

Off to Microsoft Tech-Ed EMEA 2008


I’m on my way to Microsoft TechEd EMEA 2008 in Barcelona on Sunday, I’ll try and post some details of the interesting content as I go, but incase I don’t carry my laptop round with me all the time I’ve installed the Twitterberry client on my trusty BB Pearl and will be posting “tweets” as I go; they’re on the side-bar of this page or you can go directly to my twitter page here. I’ve never really used Twitter before so I’ll see how it works out.

I missed it last year due to work commitments, and I’m looking forward to it as there have been lots of good releases over the last year; Windows 2008, HyperV and information on upcoming releases like Azure and Windows 7.

If you’re not going to TechEd, or are still undecided I would direct you at some of my Tech-Ed related points on this post, I totally recommend it and if you have to do any kind of consulting job it’s a must IMHO. you can’t buy this level of training/content and it’s a bargain – even if you have to pay door-rates.

The wireless at TechEd is always excellent (unlike VMWorld..), I’ve not worked out my session schedule yet but will try and do that ahead of the start and give you an idea of the session content.

The primary areas I’m interested in are (in no particular order):

  • Hyper-V
  • Windows 2008 Clustering
  • SCOM
  • Windows Deployment Services & Client deployment
  • Azure/Cloud
  • Windows 7
  • Exchange 2007/Unified Messaging
  • Windows 2008 Active Directory

I’ll be there with a couple of colleagues from ioko including Mr Techhead himself, leave a comment if you are interested in meeting up over the week.
