Run by MS Singapore's very own WS08 enthusiastic evangelist, Dennis Chung (whose blog is featured in my sidebar on the right), the WS08 Insider group provides exclusive, deep-level trainings to a selected group of passionate IT Pros.
As a result, Dennis has found Suhender Gunawan from Siemens IT Solutions and Services (ADFR team) - a truly passionate gentlemen who has been heavily evaluating Windows Server 2008 as a compelling solution to ease the management burden of managing his Active Directory.
In his words, “I (and ADFR team) have been supporting and managing Siemens Active Directory since Windows Server 2000. Due to the size and complexity of our Forest, the ADFR team has been experiencing some pains. The Windows Server 2003 appeared to be more reliable than Windows Server 2000, but somehow is still lacking of scalability and missing features. Windows Server 2008 is a very promising candidate to ease our current burden, and we’re seriously considering upgrading to it”.
By the way, on a side note, Suhendar will be sharing his experience on Active Directory with the local Microsoft communities too. If you like to know more about Active Directory, you can get in touch with Dennis, he can send you the resources. Email him at firstname.lastname@example.org with subject “IT PRO: W2k8 Active Directory”.
