  • Brand Spanking New Server and Domain Isolation Case Study

    Hot off the presses, we've just published a brand spanking new customer case study about how the City of Sapporo (Japan) implemented a Server and Domain Isolation solution. Here's a link to the case study (which you can also find with several case studies...
  • New White Paper on Intel's I/OAT with the Scalable Networking Pack

    I'm back, healthy and attempting to catch up from TechEd 2007. While it was a killer time down in Orlando, there was plenty of good stuff piled up on my desk (and in my inbox) on my return to Redmond. One of those items on the "good stuff" pile, was a...
  • Tech·Ed 2007 - Day 5: IPsecapalooza 2007 (recap)

    Day 5 (which was yesterday) was rough one. I'd been fighting a cold for most of my visit here in FLA, and it came back to haunt me during my last session Thursday afternoon. I did a spiel about how you can simplify your Windows XP and Windows Server 2003...
  • Tech·Ed 2007 - Day 4.5: Tolly Group White Paper Published!

    So, I've talked a lot about this white paper that the Tolly Group published in my Networking Session on Tuesday. Well, it is now up and ready for download from our TechNet Networking site ! Here's the direct link: Enhanced Network Performance with Microsoft...
  • Tech·Ed 2007 - Day 4: TLC Fun! (Recap)

  • Tech·Ed 2007 - Day 3: My First Session (Recap)

    Technically it is day 4 for me, but I had a little trouble posting yesterday evening since just about all the bandwidth in my hotel was consumed. I ran the handy Speakeasy Speed Test a bunch of times and it was barely making it over 300 Kbps on the download...
  • Tech·Ed 2007 - Day 2: Opening Day

    So. I started my day out battling a non-late night out based headache ("yeah, right Hameroff" -- no, seriously, I hit the hay around 10:30p) and then confused by the TechEd 2007 shuttle buses. I'll explain the latter more. At 9:30a-ish, I stood in...
  • Tech·Ed 2007 - Day 1: The Setup

    Greetings from sunny (and humid) Orlando, Florida ! This year's TechEd confab takes place in the somewhat " Giger-esque " looking Orange County Convention Center (known on the mean streets of, well, International Drive as "The O.C.C.C." -- which is not...
