Attending WPC & Guest Speaking at a Session on Microsoft’s Technology Vision for Next Generation Hosting (part 1/4)
This week I’ll be traveling to the Microsoft 2010 Worldwide Partner Conference and I’m excited because I’ll have ‘Speaker Credentials’ at this, Microsoft’s Flagship event for Partners. I’ve been invited by Anil Reddy to speak during his sessions and talk about our successes recently that were made possible thanks to our partnership with Microsoft. I’ll also be sharing how we’re leveraging the new programs and products being introduced by Microsoft to continue to build upon that success.
If you’re attending the WPC, the initial session was completely booked but they’ve opened a second session and I believe a third session may be in the works. The details for the sessions are listed below.
I’m looking forward to sharing our story and providing feedback on our success made possible in part by Microsoft’s Windows Server.
Today our company powers more than 25,000 domains for clients worldwide. We operate just over 500 physical servers and thousands of virtual servers all running on top of Hyper-V. This growth has been possible in part by picking great partners like Microsoft.
Although WPC currently has over 10,000 registered attendees I know many more won’t be able to make the event so I wanted to blog what I hope to speak about during the sessions. I also stink at powerpoint so I hope to refer the attendees here and continue the conversations further.
I’ll be breaking this out into 4 blog posts (including this post):
- The first will talk about the Dynamic Datacenter Toolkit, System Center suite of products and Hyper-V. It will discuss the cost savings we’ve seen thanks to Hyper-V and the unique opportunities it’s presented to our company that otherwise wouldn’t have been possible.
- The second post will be on WebsiteSpark, our leadership in the program as a Hosting Provider and how we’re leveraging WebsiteSpark to continue to grow our customer base and the opportunities it’s offered us.
- Finally, I’ll speak on the newest topic and that’s WebMatrix and how my company was able to build an infrastructure to support 5000 shared hosting accounts in just 3 days.
I hope you’ll enjoy this series of blog posts and if you’re attending WPC and want to meet up just drop me a line. I also hope that if you have any questions or comments you’ll feel free to comment on the posts and I’ll be sure to reply promptly.0
