Virtualisation Briefing for Partners – Re-run! (23rd September)

Virtualisation Briefing for Partners – Re-run! (23rd September)

This is another opportunity for Microsoft Partners to get involved in one of the biggest ever opportunities around Microsoft technologies.  Virtualisation isn’t about products, it’s about solutions.  Solutions that you, as Microsoft Partners, can provide to your customers, to better suit their needs, at the price point that’s right.

In my opinion, Microsoft’s virtualisation platform is about choice.  It’s not about the ‘you need everything’ approach.  Combining pieces of the Microsoft virtualisation strategy in different ways can bring compelling results for businesses – not interested in virtualising servers? Fine – but what about desktops?  What about your apps?  How do you deploy your applications today?  How would things improve if they were virtual?  How do you patch your servers?  How do you patch your desktops?  How would this change if they are no longer physical?  These are just some of the questions that you may have, and this event is aimed at answering them, and showcasing the possibilities around the technologies.

The day is split up into a morning, for the Business Decision Makers in your infrastructure, and the afternoon, for the techies (I’ll be there!)

  • Hi,

    I'm still waiting for the presentation slides from the 2nd July event in Manchester.

    I'm currently working in a government account, where we are seriously considering virtualisation and the info would be helpful.


  • Hi John,

    Apologies for this - i'll let the Event Organisers know, and get them to send out the slides as soon as possible.

    In the meantime, you can pull the slides down from here:
