It should not come as a surprise to you that Microsoft is putting a lot of effort into both “Private” and “Public” clouds. Part of this effort also includes involving the IT Pro and making them aware what Private Cloud is and what it can do for them.

This is why Microsoft Belgium has put up an event called the “Private Cloud Roadshow” which is a half day of training by two highly skilled MVPs: Kurt Roggen and Mike Reseller. During the event you will learn how to create your private cloud, deploy applications and services and how to automate part of your cloud. Given that the event is free and only takes up a half day of your time, there’s no reason to stay away Winking smile
