OK so maybe there won’t be blood but it’s still interesting that Vlad is turning out to be better at playing Microsoft’s game than Microsoft is.
He’s already offering the type of hosted services that Microsoft has only been talking about and is hosting them in privacy-friendly Europe.
Note to self: look into his backup services. Have a couple of clients that have more data than they can cost-effectively back up to tape.
Tomorrow he will talk about what he’s “got in store for her majesty’s prisoners.” Since it used to be a penal colony for England I’m guessing he means Australia.
During SMB Summit 2008 in Dallas Microsoft recorded the presentations on the first two days. The first day was Small Business Server 2008 while the second day was Essential Business Server 2008 (both have since shipped public betas.)
The videos have been posted the the private partner portal (you have to be at least a registered partner and sign in to view them.) Easiest way to find them is from the SMB Summit page.
I make it a point to follow Vlad’s blog. Even though he tends to use a sledge hammer where a more “delicate” approach might be called for you usually end up thinking about his posts for days. The best ones are where he holds up a “business mirror” and you don’t necessarily like the reflection you see.
So the other day he posted this. As StaceyC said in the comments, time to make some popcorn (cheddar for me please.)
