imageWow! Time sure does fly. It seems like last year’s TechEd was only yesterday. Now we’re coming up to the 2012 TechEd season and we’re ramping up some great private cloud imagearchitecture content for TechEd in both Orlando and Amsterdam. If you’re interested in private cloud architecture and foundational aspects of a private cloud infrastructure, then we’ve got some great sessions planned for you!

Of course the sessions are going to be great and you’ll learn a ton, but if you come to one or more of my sessions, you could win a book! I’m bringing a box of books and will give them away to attendees. All you need to do is ask a question at the end of the presentation. See you there!
