The System Center team has landed in Berlin for what is shaping up to be an incredible week with our friends from Europe.  How COOL is the Bing homepage today?  For those that aren’t familiar, that’s Brandenburg Gate, one of the most historic sites in Berlin.

There is a buzz in this city.  Monday Nov 9th is the 20th anniversary of the Wall coming down, and everywhere you look there are events, celebrations, portions of the wall and more – in memory of that historic event. 


And what a day to start TechEd!  Monday we commence our annual System Center coverage of releases, product updates and of course demos.  The team has been hammering away in preparation for this event for months, and we cannot wait to share with you some of the cool things we are covering.  Look back here for behind the scenes videos, interviews and product updates as we roll through one of the most exciting weeks in the year.

The picture on the right was taken outside our Hotel.  It is an actual piece of the Berlin Wall!  Samples like this are placed all over the city, for people to experience themselves.  The sections are roughly 3.6 meters (12 ft) high and 1.2 meters (3.9 ft) wide.  They feel HUGE when you stand next to them!

We hope to see you at TechEd Europe this year.  If you are here, stop by our Product booths, and say hello!
