SharePoint Conference – Vegas! Next Week!


At this year’s conference, Microsoft will be looking towards the future with a broad array of deep content centered on the next version of SharePoint, SharePoint Server 2010 and at the same time be firmly planted in the present, sharing real world experience and guidance to help you maximize your investment in SharePoint Server 2007.

At the same time, EMC will be displaying some technology across all levels of the maturity/adoption curve.

So, hopefully what happens in Vegas doesn’t stay in Vegas!

Come talk to us, ask us tough questions, and challenge us to drinking contests trivia matches.   Here’s some highlights of what we are doing:

Bleeding Edge:

Eyal Sharon gives us a presentation on taking BLOBs (large objects/documents) out of SQL and store them in the EMC Atmos cloud.  Very new technology which can drastically reduce SharePoint’s SQL database sizes.

Cool Stuff:

James Baldwin will be showing us some incredible stuff around SharePoint with Hyper-V and how to create instant copies of your production database without any impact to the production SharePoint farm. Restores can happen at the volume level or at a single-item granular level.  Cool!

One of our Microsoft Consultants talks about best practices for SharePoint DR.  We’ll see an overview of what our EMC Consulting teams have learned over years and years of experience.

And Me

I’ll be talking about how virtualization changes your management and protection strategy.  This is basically to describe some of the benefits of virtualizing SharePoint and will describe some of our DR technology that integrates with virtualized environments.

Of course we’re giving away a ton of stuff, I believe a lot of Iomega products, and you don’t want to miss out on your chance to get one of our compressed EMC shirts. Or – you might decide to leave those in Vegas.

Please stop by the EMC booth and say hi!
