It’s go time, Microsoft Management Summit 2012 #MMS – 7 days and counting!!!

Once again EMC is a gold sponsor of the Microsoft Management Summit #MMS (April 16th–20th 2012, Venetian Hotel, Las Vegas)   In case you missed it, MMS is Microsoft’s Premier Cloud and Data Center Management show.  This year all the buzz is around Systems Center 2012, and managing IT environments across traditional datacenters, private clouds, client computers and remote devices. 

That said, when I talk to customers, that statement is typically followed by…  Cool, so why is EMC there again? 

Where do I start?  Well, seeing is believing!  If you are attending MMS, be sure to stop by the EMC booth (#315).  Leveraging Systems Center to manage the datacenter is based on managing datacenter infrastructure.  EMC technologies extending and supporting that initiative is the focus!!  I will be at the conference along with EMC solution experts showcasing EMCs industry leading integration with Microsoft Management tools.  The EMC technology showcased will include but not be limited to:

Cloud and Datacenter Management – EMC Integration with Systems Center 2012 Operations Manager, Virtual Machine Manager and Orchestrator will allow you to simply manage and dynamically provision and scale your cloud infrastructure.

Simplified Cloud Management – With technologies like ProSphere, EMC Storage Integrator (ESI), Microsoft PowerShell and Unisphere learn how you can simplify and automate your IT infrastructure.

Accelerate Backup Transformation – Enabling fast online backup with deduplication and advanced recovery with EMCs advanced Backup portfolio including: DataDomain, Avamar, Networker and EMC RecoverPoint.

Accelerate to the Cloud - Accelerating your journey to the cloud with “Purpose Built” configurations focused on Microsoft Hyper-V including Microsoft Private Cloud Fast Track and….  additional Microsoft Hyper-V based purpose built configuration that, well….  I can’t talk about until the conference….
