Jeff Alexander is calling for Virtual Server 2005 R2 Service Pack 1 Technology Adoption Program (TAP) :
This TAP program has two goals:
1. Product Validation
2. Help customers deploy this product in production scenarios and get case studies
The production scenarios that are of high interest are:
1. Production Server consolidation in datacenters
2. Disaster recovery
3. Server consolidation in Branch offices
TAP is a very special program giving access to particular benefits like direct interaction with product team engineering and product education from Microsoft, and is reserved for a very small amount of critical customers, able to dedicate a serious amount of time for testing and usually providing information to create case studies for a new product launch (for more details about TAPs you should check this blog entry). So it’s really hard to get it.
Thanks to Dugie at Virtualserver.tv and Jeff Alexander for this news.
