What another great day at Microsoft TechEd 2012! Yesterday I spent most of the day at our booth talking with customers. People were interested in data protection, storage topics such as data tiering and deduplication, Windows Server 2012 features like ODX and the EMC Microsoft Private Cloud (be sure to check out the new solution briefs which have now been published!
We also held several customer meetings including talking to a customer who had a large SharePoint deployment and was interested in remote blob storage and another large customer with a SQL Server environment spread across the globe with high OLTP workloads and looking to improve processes and performance.
We also had our customer appreciation dinner last night which was a big hit! It was a small event so my apologies if you weren't able to get in. We held it at a wine bar and it included a 5 course dinner each paired with a wine and an education session from a sommelier. It was a fun night with great customers and people from Microsoft's Windows, Private Cloud and SQL Server teams in attendance!
Finally we gave away our $1000 prize to one lucky winner who was wearing their EMC shirt at our booth during the drawing.
What a great day and thanks to everyone for coming by our booth this week!!
