Inside Microsoft's 'Cloud OS'
Does Windows Server 2012 deliver on its promise?
Live video Microsoft claims that Windows Server 2012 is the "Cloud OS", but is that a serious statement or just marketing hype? We know that thousands of you who are Windows Server users are planning to migrate to private cloud in 2013, so the answer matters as much to you as it does to us.
Join The Reg's Tim Phillips for a live discussion on would-be Cloud OS at 1100 GMT on 22 February, after which you can make your decision. He will be joined in the studio by Andrew Fryer from Microsoft, who will be sitting in a large metaphorical cauldron of our construction. Dale Vile from Freeform Dynamics will be chopping metaphorical vegetables and you, Reg readers, can choose whether to let Andrew clamber out of the cooking pot or turn up the heat.
Dale Vile will also be stirring things up with our latest Register Research - A Vision for the Data Centre to set the scene. And before their 60 minutes is up, our panel promise to deliver a detailed technical investigation into how Windows Server OS integrates cloud. Register for this free broadcast here and find out whether Windows Server 2012 justifies its "cloud OS" billing. ®
