Welcome to day four for TechEd North America 2013. We hope you’ve been pacing yourself because we still have a full day of information for you, then of course there is the closing party tonight.
First up on the list of information we wanted to bring to your attention is the blog post “Transforming your datacenter with software-defined networking (SDN)” by the Windows Server group. Software-defined networking is about enabling software – rather than the hardware – to dynamically manage the network in a way that helps you better meet the requirements of your applications and workloads. Be sure and read the post to get more information on our approach to solving this complex problem. There is another TechEd session titled “Everything You Need to Know about the Software Defined Networking Solution from Microsoft” that was delivered a couple of days ago. The on-demand recording is now available.
Next, take a look at "Nine More Reasons Everyone Should be Excited about the Microsoft Cloud" written by Microsoft Vice President, Brad Anderson. "The cloud is the future of business". That pretty much says it all but Brad includes some interesting data points to back it up.
Next up are a number of sessions taking place today in New Orleans. Here are some selections from the Modern Datacenter track.
This is just a small selection of sessions from a single track. There are many more sessions taking place. Enjoy the day. Enjoy the party. Enjoy the city and stay safe.
