In the world of IT…. things are moving very quickly. In my role at EMC, I have the opportunity and quite frankly privilege, to talk to many customers, partners, press and analysts and as well as EMC’s many experts on Microsoft. Consistently I hear from all about the abundance of information out there on cloud computing and virtualization… and how confusing it can be to cut through all of the noise and truly educate yourself.
There are a number of EMC resources and sponsored opportunities for IT professionals to do just that – educate themselves on technical considerations for deploying Microsoft Applications such as Exchange, SharePoint, SQL Server database and Windows Server in a cloud environment.
EMC recently worked with industry leading analysts and thought leaders to discuss what customers should begin to think about as they evaluate which path to take regarding their Microsoft applications and cloud computing. I am going to be posting a weekly blog on our efforts to help our customers, partners and the broader Microsoft community on the role that infrastructure can have in helping your transform your Microsoft environments to the Cloud.
As always – key place to start your education process is here on this blog and also on our Everything Microsoft Community on ECN.
