Firstly, a happy new year to you all!  If you celebrate Xmas, I hope you had a good one, and if not, I hope you had a relaxing time out of the office.

It seems like ages since I wrote a blog post!  18th December to be precise, which was my last day before a Christmas and New Year break.  Zoom forward to 2010, and yet again, there’s a tonne of things to talk about, and not enough time to get it down in words!  For those of you interested, my App-V 4.6 series on Virtualboy TV is nearly complete, and is just undergoing the finishing touches on the cutting room floor, plus, as an extra treat, just before Xmas, one of my friend’s, and fellow Matt’s, this time from Quest, came over to record a number of videos on vWorkspace 7.0 on a Microsoft platform.  Expect to see these soon!

Anyway, I’m sure many of you have heard about this Windows Server 2008 R2 poster by now, but for those that haven’t, it’s quite a useful reference piece, targeting key Windows Server 2008 R2 technologies by graphically describing the operations and features of those components. In this poster, they’ve included updates to Active Directory Domain Services, Hyper-V R2 features, File Services updates, improvements to IIS, Remote Desktop Services (including VDI), BranchCache, Server Management and the new DirectAccess technologies.

So, you think the PDF is cool?  Well, how about going one step further and going into DeepZoom?  You’ll need Silverlight, but trust me, it’s worth it…

You can navigate around the poster using the mouse, you scroll wheel, and the buttons in the bottom right of the screen.  You can also put it into full screen using the far-right button.  Hat tip to James O’Neill for showing me the (silver)light on this one…

That’s it for now, more posts to come soon, including information about upcoming events around System Center, which, if you’re a Partner who’s revenue’s are driven by services, you won’t want to miss them…
