We’ve been seeing quite a bit of chatter on the “internets” about the goings-on at TechEd Europe 2010 in Berlin, and it’s great to see the diverse impressions of attendees as the event happens.
The announcements and news about a range of things—including Hyper-V Cloud, the VMM SSP 2.0 release, and RC availability of Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010—garnered comment and tweets aplenty. Here are a few from the community that stood out for us among the hubbub of official announcements and journalist/analyst reports (in no particular order):
- Dan Germain, a hosting provider out of the UK, posted variously on the Day 1 keynote, the SSP release, and the Hyper-V Cloud program—which he described as “another example of how Microsoft is embracing the world of cloud computing and are helping their partners on this journey.”
- Jef Claes, a Belgian developer offered this short write up of the opening day keynote by Brad Anderson, summarizing the key products and technologies highlighted and demonstrated on stage, saying “Next to the Windows 7 Phone and SQL Azure all these products were new to me and one by one they looked very promising.”
- Lee Stot, an IS director at the UK’s University of Manchester, provided his personal/professional take on the keynote, explaining his passion for mobile computing and productivity and Microsoft’s advances in these areas with Office 2010 and Office 360; his excitement over the compelling application and service integration of one of the new Windows Phone 7devices; and finally the advantages of Microsoft’s approach to cloud computing:
Another key part of the Microsoft vision is enabling you to get “the cloud on your terms.” What I believe this means is that Microsoft is committed to giving you options, and in today’s financial environment options simply give you the ability to be agile.
