Infrastructure management from a Microsoft perspective

Just what you've always wanted: an hour of me — and only me — on camera.
Late last week I hosted a live Webinar for Microsoft's “Because It's Everybody's Business” (BIEB) campaign which looked at how properly managing infrastructure is getting more complicated in a world dominated by virtualization and cloud computing.
This is part of a series we're producing for Microsoft along with advertising features that are appearing in all our enterprise publications. Microsoft approves that content, and they hand-picked my guests in this Webinar, but the conversation was not scripted.
That's why — although the discussion obviously leans towards a Microsoft-oriented view of the data centre — I'm offering up this link to the archived Webinar. We were able to talk live to one of their IT manager customers, Patrick Plante of the College St Jean-de-Vianney, about his business case planning, deployment and early results. We also had on hand Brian Bourne, a longtime colleague who has blogged for this site and who gave some pretty frank (as usual) feedback on what clients are actually doing today.
The most interesting parts for me were looking at the issue of IT chargeback through effective infrastructure management and virtualization, as well as the response to a question from the audience about working in a mixed environment.
