SharePoint 2010 in the Cloud – Cloudshare

The thing to note here is that this is not really about hosting a web site on a Virtual Machine somewhere but more about having machines available for any occasion, testing, developing, research or demos. A note also that the machines will suspend themselves after 90 minutes of inactivity (if you keep the web page open you should be fine), if you are using direct RDP then it may not last that long. All in all, though this is a very compelling solution for everyone. Highly recommend trying it out and seeing what it can do for you. J

The french MVP O365

Office 365 MVP:  Arnaud Alcabez

Q. What does being an MVP mean to you? (How did you feel to be awarded an MVP?)

A. My first nomination in 2004 was a surprise, because I did not know the content of the MVP program. Until 2010, I shared special instants with the Exchange teams and I would like to thank them for their encouragement and their availability to share their knowledge with their MVPs. This is the main advantage which I see: an annual pass to allow discussing equal to equal with Microsoft’s internal teams.  After some years, I consider the renewal Microsoft MVP recognition as a good metric of my commitment. Being a MVP, I need to know how to share my knowledge with others and how I can improve it. Day after day, it is difficult to make sure if I respect this practice. The recognition as MVP is a good method to assess it.  I would like to say thank you to my employer, Capgemini, where I work as Office 365 technical expert to bring its support in this recognition. And the last, but not the least, the MVP recognition is a ticket to promote the French culture and expertise and maybe to destroy clichés (for example: Always ready to criticize ;-)) about the strange French people. ;-)
