Wow! the Microsoft/HP call/announcement went out and it was great to hear them on the call answering questions.
I think Mark Hurd said it best when someone asked isn’t this just the same old, same old? He said something to the fact that if this wasn’t big, you wouldn’t have gotten these people on the phone together. This announcement is going to change the way customers can reap the benefits of virtualization. It is going to be huge.
I wrote on it on the Windows Server 2008 R2 Experts Blogs today, so check it out. I think the two things to note for Virtualization are:
- HP and Microsoft will put together bundles that make virtualization easier for the masses
- Systems designed for Virtualization
- Management Integrations to make it fly
- Where we are going to take the cloud gives our customers endless possibilities
This is going to be fun.
