Exclusive Webinar - Intel® Hybrid Cloud Pilot Program

You may have seen the pictures Jerry and I posted from our visit to Intel last week. See Photos on Facebook.

. . .And you may have seen some postings from Harry Brelsford on this as well.

So What's it All About?

Intel is about to kick off a pilot program for their new Intel® Hybrid Cloud, a new and innovative subscription-based model enabling MSPs to offer locally hosted server software on a pay-as-you-go basis.

This on-premise cloud offering allows you to deploy servers very quickly at a client's site -- and includes all the software and hardware for a flat monthly fee. The solution includes on-premise hardware and a management tool that allows you to quickly deploy servers, backup solutions, and more. And once deployed, all the licensing is managed in one place.

This is a great solution for people who need SBS or "regular" Server 2008. And the catalog of add-ins will allow you to literally drag and drop the deployment of other solutions (like a firewall or backup) -- all on a subscription basis.
