Monday afternoon here in a sunny Barcelona. Sitting at the keynote of TechEd after some meetings and a walk in the sun. (Delayed post due to technical difficulties. My Windows didn’t like my camera…)
The keynote has been about Oslo, Kidaro, Hyper-V server, Windows Server 2008 R2, Live Migration in Hyper-V and at this moment we’re being showed System Center Operations Manager with the cross platform extensions which will extend the functionality into the *nix community.
We’ve been told some “news” about Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7, so I guess now that the technical details are official it’ll be ok to blog about it too. Have some interesting stuff lined up, and some new videos, but I’m still waiting for the official green light.
What’s to read at other places I’m sure I can repeat though. So when Windows Server 2008 R2 comes along, be sure to check out Direct Access and Agile VPN which’ll revolutionize the way we build our networks and how we connect to our workplace. Branch cache will definitely be a winning concept for those with branch offices and low available bandwidth. The Live Migration concept for Hyper-V is also a really nice feature which is much needed.
I’ve also checked in at the speaker lounge and collected my speaker shirts. I highly doubt that they’ll fit, but I’ll try one on tonight. Scheduled for tech check Wednesday morning, and I’ll be speaking in the room we’re sitting in right now, 112. This is a big room. It’ll be fun!
