Lights, Camera, Archiving!

With yesterday delivering a great deal of positive buzz around our Exchange 2010 SP1 unveiling, I figured I’d break with tradition and put up another post in less than 24 hours.  Wow, right? Here goes: As part of our public disclosure of SP1, my Exchange team pal Ann Vu and I recorded what was to…

What? A Blog Post? Tiered Storage?

What’s this world coming to, eh?  So, I took nearly a four month sabbatical to spend more time Tweeting, and to get mentally prepared for the Seattle Sounders FC’s 2010 MLS season. Lame excuses, I know (except for the Sounders reason). But, what’s really occupied my time, was getting ready to share details on the…

Behind the Music: Exchange 2010 Demo at TechEd Europe 2009

Well, it’s been a week and change since we formally launched Exchange Server 2010 at this year’s edition of TechEd Europe. The highlight of this announcement (in this humble blogger’s opinion) was the Exchange 2010 demo delivered in Stephen Elop’s keynote address to over 5,500 #TEE09 attendees.  As a quick aside, that TechEd keynote hall…

Day 3 – Giggin’ in Amsterdam

Today, I officially kicked off my participation as a crew member of “The Bus Tour” (exciting, eh?)! We started the day bidding farewell to contest winner Christopher, who was heading back to France ahead of TechEd.  And, then Ken, Stephen, and I headed over to Compu’Train-BvO to do our first presentations of the day (and…

What? A Bus Tour Across Central Europe?

Hello world! I’m being serious. I’ve just resurfaced after spending nearly two weeks in a “executive keynote demo bunker”, building out a cool demo rig for a big upcoming event (wink, wink).  Man, I had a beard and everything, and mostly sustained myself with Starbucks coffee, good humor, and the thousand degree temperatures that come…

Get Into the “New Efficiency”. I Did!

Wow! What a crazy run it has been, as we’ve been ramping for a number of milestones for the big launch.  For example, I’ve spent this week building out a real killer Exchange Server 2010 demo rig for some important, upcoming events.  In addition to that, I have been conducting briefings with top tier tech…

So, Why Add an Archive to Exchange?

Last Wednesday I started with a brief overview of the integrated archiving, retention, and discovery capabilities we’re launching with Exchange Server 2010. Good, right? Well, a common question I get from customers, partners, analysts, our field and the like is: “So, why are you adding an archive to Exchange?” Great question…glad you asked!  This is…

Just When You Thought It Was Safe To Switch On Your Internet…

What a long post title to basically share a link to a recent video I recorded with Microsoft U.K.’s very own Eileen Brown (leading IT Pro evangelist, and social media expert) about our recent unveiling of Exchange 2010: This video was shot just minutes after spending nearly seven hours presenting and facilitating the Exchange sessions,…

World, Meet Exchange 2010

  After spending more than year working on the Exchange product management team, I can finally start talking about all the cool stuff the Exchange team has been building over the last several years.  That’s right, today we took the wraps off, dispensed with all the secrecy, and publicly announced Exchange 2010 (Woo-hoo!): Microsoft Unveils…

Now Available on Twitter…Watch Out Web 2.0!

Well…in keeping with the spirit of my long blogosphere absences, I’m back (once again) to let you know that I’m now rightsizing my blogging to micro-blog levels.  That’s right, I’ve gone off and started Twitting. Or, is it Tweeting.  Ugh. Nevertheless, I welcome you to follow not just my random acts of blogging on this…
