One of the best events I went to last year was the War on Cost run by Inframon at the Cabinet War Rooms (where else!).  It was like a free mini TechEd on System Center with deep sessions on the entire line-up from the Microsoft product team and Inframon MVPs focused on reducing data centre costs.  We also got a sneak peak at some of the next releases and I saw Opalis in action for the first time. The videos are out now so if you couldn’t make it you can now catch the reruns on Microsoft Showcase..
