WPC Announcements–Servers and Tools and Azure! (Oh my!)
Some of you may be aware that this week another big Microsoft conference is happening in Toronto. The Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) for 2012 is in full swing. And like all of these kinds of conferences, there are usually big announcements and reveals and important information shared during the keynotes. This year’s is no exception.
Yesterday (WPC Day 1), for example, Microsoft announced the timing of the release of Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, and introduced partners to new options for selling Office 365. And today (WPC Day 2) Microsoft announced some additional important resources and opportunities for partners regarding cloud hosting and helping to move your customers from VMware to Hyper-V virtualization.
Here are the links to all of the details.
- Microsoft Partner Virtual Pressroom
- WPC Day 1 Announcements
- WPC Day 2 Announcements
- “Bringing Windows Azure Services to Windows Server for Hosting Providers”
- The “Switch to Hyper-V” Program
And in case you’re not watching it already, here is the “Digital WPC” site, which has live streaming and is where you’ll find access to recorded content. It will be a great place to go if you want to watch the keynote recordings when they’re available.
“Hey Kevin.. where’ve you been?”
I was on vacation. I enjoyed a week with my parents, brothers, and all of our families in Colorado (Estes Park) to celebrate my folks’ 50th Wedding Anniversary.
