Windows Server 2008 Launch in Seattle
I had the opportunity to speak at the Windows Server 2008 launch today here in Seattle. Ted Kummert who is the Corporate Vice-President for the data and storage group was the executive speaker for the keynote. I was asked to speak about the products that Quest Software has that support Windows Server 2008, SQL Server 2008 and about our partnership with Microsoft.
It all went off without a hitch but guess which technology I spoke most highly of...
Active Directory?? Nope.
Identity Management?? Nope.
SQL Server?? Nope.
I really do believe that PowerShell is revolutionary compared to everything else that's "new" in Windows Server 2008. If you haven't checked out our free PowerShell GUI and cmdlets then now is the time: http://www.powergui.org/
