Tune in, Geek Out – Baldwin Ng on a free Virtualization Assessment toolset

TechNet Radio - Tune in, Geek outI just completed my second TechNet Radio episode.  These are fun.  I get to put the Program or Product Group guy on the hot seat.  This time, my victim is Baldwin Ng.  Baldwin is a really nice guy and he also is working on some fascinating tools.  He was a great sport and I think you'll find the interview to be a good listen.

If you weren't aware, Baldwin is a Senior Product Group Manager in the Windows Server Marketing/Solution Accelerators Team.  You may have first noticed the Windows Vista Hardware Assessment Tool a few weeks back on my blog.  Baldwin helped drive the definition and release of that product.  This is a great little network voyeur tool to dig around and generate some reports on the viability of Windows Vista deployment to your existing hardware.

Well Baldwin and crew are back at it.  This time however the tool has been modified for the server space and can be used in a variety of ways to help on your virtualization assessment needs.  Baldwin does a great job of describing the current project scope, timelines, how to get access and answers to a few curve ball questions I threw at him.  Check out the program.  This episode is 30 minutes which is probably half your drive to work.  Enjoy!

    The links goes to connect.microsoft.com and I do not see anything from Baldwin?

    There are three links.  The hyperlink to the connect.microsoft.com site doesn’t seem to be working because the site appears to be down.  The other two links should be working for you.

    Works like a charm. I was under the impression that the Windows Virtual hardware assesment tool was available to download but thats not the case yet.

    Great podcast, signed up for the beta that starts on December 14.

    Thanks for your questions towards virtualisation in the podcast that people HAVE TO listen to.

    I’m curious about the shot at http://www.blipsphoto.com/2007/10/20/horizontal-lines/

    Is that two pictures digitally stiched into one?  If not, how did you take the picture?

    Nice website.  You do great work.  I am jealous.

    That picture was made with a 12mm wide angle lens and I cropped the top and botton so it looks like a panorama. 🙂

    Here is a picture I stiched;

    http://usadutch.com/pano/pano_menu.htm Those are 6 pictures.

    Used Adobe Photoshop Elements 5 to do it, real simple.
