Our daring UK/IE MVP Lead, Claire Smyth, has organized an online event running on March 31st and April 1st to educate about the Microsoft Cloud OS. “What’s that?” you say … well that means you need to learn about how Windows Server 2012 R2, Hyper-V, System Center 2012 R2, Windows Azure, and more can be combined to make private, public, and hybrid cloud IaaS solutions, tailored to your specific needs.

Most of the presenters, such as myself, are MVPs, and we are (as I have to remind some people sometimes) independent experts:

This is an event presented by UK and Irish MVPs, but everyone is welcome. Note that the times are UK/Irish, so add 5 hours from US Eastern or subtract 1 hour from Central European.
