After months of planning and supporting Microsoft Management Summit (MMS) and EMCWorld, we come to the Grand Finale – Microsoft TechEd 2012! Microsoft TechEd (June 11th-15th in Orlando, FL) is THE biggest technical conference for Microsoft technologies and so it is only fitting that it will be our biggest presence of all three shows!
So what's on tap for this year?
EMC is a platinum sponsor for Microsoft TechEd and like year's past, we will have a lot going on. At our booth (#205) we will have over 30 EMC Microsoft Specialists, Engineers and Product Managers available to talk about our Microsoft support and integration. Our staff includes product specialists from technologies such as EMC VNX, VMAX, Isilon, Backup and Deduplication technologies and Data Recovery. We will also have field specialists from Shanghai, Latin America, Spain, Mexico as well as locations across the US. A sample of topics and demos that we will be highlighting includes:
- EMC Microsoft Private Cloud Fast Track based on Hyper-V and System Center 2012
- Microsoft Management of EMC Infrastructure through System Center 2012
- EMC Storage Integrator (ESI) for simple provisioning of Microsoft Windows
- SQL Server 2012 Performance and DR with VMAX and VNX
- Exchange 2010 Best practices
- SharePoint Performance, DR and Storage Efficiency
- Simple replication for Microsoft applications and Hyper-V
We will have an EMC VNX and VMAX array in our booth to show you how simple our arrays are to use and manage and we will even have our brand new EMC Microsoft Private Cloud Fast Track Solution in the booth based on Cisco UCS servers and an EMC VNX array along with Microsoft Hyper-V and System Center 2012!
EMC will also be hosting a breakout session entitled "Accelerating the Power of the Cloud with Microsoft Private Cloud Fast Track and EMC Infrastructure (session WSV211) on Wednesday June 13th at 10:15AM-11:30AM.
We will also have a presentation in the Microsoft theatre on Monday, June 11th at 12:15 entitled "Microsoft Private Cloud Amplified with EMC" that I'll be delivering so be sure to stop by if you are in the area.
We will be giving away an assortment of prizes including various American Express gift cards as well as t-shirts and just by wearing your EMC t-shirt you could receive an on-the-spot cash reward if you are spotted by one of our EMC gift patrol assistants!
