Welcome to the first installment of the Cloud Broiler blog series. For those of you that follow my writing exploits elsewhere on the web, thank you so much for seeking me out at my new “chateau” here at the Microsoft Server & Tools Blog.

Over the next several weeks and months, I’m going to highlight all the different features and capabilities of our Windows Server and Cloud OS platform, at a very high level, so that our overall message and positioning of these products are better understood. And if you need to deep dive into any particular area that interests you, we will be sure to provide those resources for you.

We have an extensive multi-course tasting menu to cover Windows Server 2012 over the next several weeks, so I hope you are hungry, and make sure you leave room for dessert.
