A post by me has a just been published over on the Fordway blog at http://www.fordway.com/blog-fordway/windows-server-2003-end-of-life/.
This was written in parallel to my earlier post Windows Server 2003 End of Life Spreadsheet, reproducing the spreadsheet for documenting your Windows Server 2003 environment originally posted by Microsoft. In this new post on the Fordway blog, I talk about some of the areas that we need to focus our attention and other up some food for thought. If you have any questions then please feel free to get in touch either with myself or someone at Fordway who will be happy to help you.
So a couple of weeks’ ago, I said that there were some exciting times coming up for me and I figure it’s time to spill some beans if you haven’t seen already through other sources like Twitter or LinkedIn.
Last week, I started my new role as a Consultant for Fordway of Godalming and it’s been a busy week and one day already. Working for Fordway is an exciting role for me because I get to combine two worlds of IT that I enjoy into one place. This is made possible by the fact that Fordway offer both more traditional consultancy IT services to customers as well as operating a managed services cloud environment in which customers can get IaaS (among others) services in a way which is supported under G-Cloud, the UK government framework for government cloud adoption.
To me, the idea of being able to help support and deliver both in-house IT and customer IT services is really exciting and I’m looking forward to working in both of these areas and continuing to do so with products that I know and love like Hyper-V, System Center and more. Whilst I’m on the subject of employers and products, I just want to reiterate the fact that this is my own personal blog and that everything posted here reflects my own views and opinions and not those of my employers, past, present or future.
I look forward to working on new projects for new people and being able to share some of what I get up to with you all as always.
