Sorry I’m a bit late with the recap for the Phoenix / Tempe Event last week.

For the summary of Cloud Computing and what a Private Cloud really is compared to On Premise datacenters, Public Clouds and Hybrid Clouds, please see my recap from Los Angeles.

I do want to repost the links for the PPT decks and the Trial software downloads here.

There were three presentations given:

  1. Get Ready for Tomorrow, Today!
  2. Private Cloud 201 – How to Build a Private Cloud
  3. Forefront Identity Manager

For those of you who would like to download trial versions of the different software products I discussed during the event, you can find the links in the PPT Decks as well as here below:
