Microsoft starting the Virtual Server 2005 R2 Service Pack 1 TAP

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 for the news.
