Microsoft's Mike Manos made an amazing presentation at AFCOM's Data Center World, and it was the buzz of the show. It was fun watching the news spread and the various things written by press and bloggers. I decided to build a relationship mindmap to track the relationships. DataCenterKnowledge, SearchDataCenter, and DataCenterLinks should be particularly interested in the relationships.
