Last week I told you I was headed to LA to the launch of Windows Server 2008. Well, I went and got a t-shirt to prove it. Last Wednesday morning, I attended the keynote where Tom Brokaw opened for Steve Ballmer and Microsoft officially announced the launches of Windows Server 2008, SQL Server 2008, and Visual Studio 2008.
Today, I‘m in Los Angeles for the Microsoft launch of Windows Server 2008. With this launch, our Windows customers will now have the option to continue to deploy on Windows Server 2003 or possibly on the new Windows Server 2008. Rackspace is making Windows Server 2008 available on the same day Microsoft launches it to the public, but there are a few limitations until all of our vendors catch up with production drivers. If you’re a customer, you can check with your account team for the specifics.
