What I learned in Redmond, WA this month

Some of you know that I disappeared for two weeks (between illnesses).  I was in Redmond getting a information dump on a number of technologies.  It’s kinda of like "TechEd" for Internal Microsoft employees – something we call "Envision".

Nonetheless, I got a full dump on a number of really important topics including:

  • Windows Server 2003 Compute Cluster Edition
  • Microsoft’s New Data Protection Server
  • Windows Server 2003 "R2" Release Overview
  • Windows Server 2003 "R2" Web Single-Sign-On and Federation Services
  • Windows Server 2003 "R2" as a Branch Office Server
  • Windows Server "Longhorn" Overview
  • Network Isolation using Windows Server 2003 IPSec & Group Policy
  • Best Practices for Secure Wireless using Windows Server 2003
  • 64-bit Computing and Microsoft
  • Windows Server 64-bit Overview
  • Management Technologies Roadmap
  • MOM2005 Performance & Scalability
  • System Center Overview – Revised for 2005
  • What’s coming with Exchange Server 2003 SP2
  • Exchange Best Practices Analyzer Version 2.0
  • Windows Client "Longhorn" Security
  • Manageable Collaboration with Exchange & MOM2005

If any of this sounds interesting to you, you know how to contact me.  <grin>
