In this episode of the Edge show Simon May and Symon Perriman talk through what's new at Microsoft this week including highlights such as Microsoft's New CEO announcement, Symon Perriman and Matt McSpirit's upcoming jumpstart Virtualizing Your Data Center with Hyper-V and System Center, Microsoft and NBC's end-to-end live streaming of the Winter Olympics entirely in the cloud, including encoding, transcoding and streaming, for the first time in history. They then switch gears and look at some tools for Information workers and IT admins with announcements that Office 365 now supports PowerBI ( very cool technology for visualizing data) and Office 365 users can protect their user accounts with Azure Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) and finally Simon get's a little jazzed about the Windows Performance Jumpstart on MVA.
