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…

Curious about Exchange 2010 Retention Policies?

Defining and enforcing records management policies for e-mail can be a real pain in the <you know what> without having some kind of automated approach. Don’t just take my word for it, industry watcher Michael Osterman (of the eponymously named firm Osterman Research) pointed this out in his May 2009 “Messaging Archiving and Document Management…

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…

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…

Back in Bla…er…Blog! And, a little Exchange Archiving too.

I must admit, that after nearly a four month hiatus, I’m feeling a bit like my blog has just been reawaken, like Han Solo was released from being frozen in Carbonite: can’t really see that well, and I’m hoping that I don’t need to stare down a Sarlacc in the process. Wow, that’s a lot…
