Virtualization and some coffee... now on Facebook

“Ok, so why have you enabled a page on Facebook for a simple blog?”
Recently, I was visiting Microsoft`s HQ here in Norway with Anders Borchsenius - @Anders_Borch (IT-Pro Marketing Manager). We were shooting some movies, creating some demoes, and planned for an IT-pro campaign. This campaign will take off early in January 2012.

And now, hold your horses: It`s a cloud campaign. Yes. As you may have noticed, Microsoft have begun to market their private cloud solutions. Basically, the composition of a Microsoft Private Cloud is based on Windows Server 2008 R2, Hyper-V, and all the SC products.

Our impression from the IT-pro`s in Norway, is that they are good at server virtualization, but that there is a need to get to know the rest of the cloud stack as well. The learning curve will hopefully not be too heavy after watching the campaign.

Over to the point of the page creation on Facebook.

(You can join the page by clicking on this link)

Today, it`s possible to post questions and feedbacks directly on my blog, and you should feel free to do so. But this requires me to approve and publish every comment. (I bet you all know why I have to).

On Facebook, you can post questions regarding cloud computing and the campaign in itself directly, and everyone can participate in a way they are familiar with and already does on a day to day basis.

Perhaps I`d need a moderator or two as well - in addition to the kid below.

The IT-Pro of the future?
