Did you know that Microsoft is the only vendor who can do it all?
Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) – as a Public Cloud, a Private Cloud and as a mixture of the two as a Hybrid Cloud.
There is no other vendor with the breadth and depth of our solutions. Some do only Private Cloud IaaS, some only Public Cloud SaaS. I’ll be delving into this in the future. Meantime have a look at http://technet.microsoft.com/cloud for more info.
On that page, there are links to the Microsoft Virtual Academy (MVA), where you will find loads of free training on our Cloud technologies. The MVA allows you to take self-assessments on each of the topics you study. Self-assessments earn you points, and points make prizes! There is a page in the MVA that lists the Top Students in the World and in Ireland. If you are listed as one of the top ten in Ireland, let me know - once I can verify it is you I’ll give you a free TechNet subscription!
