My name is Allen Stewart Team Lead of the Windows Server Customer Advisory Team in the Windows Server Division. We are a team of Program Managers that are experts in specific workloads/technologies. We work in the Windows Server Engineering organization and our main goal is helping to ship Windows Server that incorporates requirements/scenario based feedback directly from customers via Engineering focused customer councils and direct technical projects that my team engages in specifically focused on early, new complex scenarios. My team looks forward to working with the technical community and sharing best practices from our learning's across a range of topics for specific server workloads. Our blog will be the main way we communicate some of the interesting things we discover. Each month we will communicate a new topic (see John Morello's blog post: on Clustering CA'S) http://blogs.technet.com/wincat/archive/2008/07/21/to-cluster-or-not-to-cluster-cas.aspx
