I like this season of the year when we have our Microsoft Summit. This year has been hold at EMC facilities in Santa Clara. This is a great location in Silicon Valley between all the most important technologies companies.
It is time to meet with a lot of colleagues from different countries with the same interest and passion, learn about Microsoft and EMC Technologies.
This year we had around 85 people in the room from 19 countries and 22 states, some of them from presales, MSpecialist, engineering, marketing, etc. Additionally this year we count with the presence of some partners in the room and his feedback was very positive.
During the sessions we enjoyed seeing the latest EMC products, new EMC technologies features, Microsoft integration capabilities and more.
These are some of the topics we saw during the week.
- MSpecialist program update\

- Microsoft Cloud Solutions
- Microsoft applications with new VNX
- Xtrem Flash
- Windows Failover Cluster with VMware

Also we had a Customer showcase “xtremSW with SQL 2008” by KM Gan. During the session KM Gan showed us the great work they did with xtremSW and SQL2008 during a POC in a customer.
Geek night driven by Karsten Bott our expert in Powershell. He demonstrated ESI Powershell functionalities to discover and manage EMC storage arrays. Additionally we spent some time with the new BRS2go lab, easy pack to install a lab in your
laptop with BRS products what you can use for training and customer demos… It is great!!!
