"How I Saved $10K yearly by transforming my home lab into a CloudShare Cloud Environment" - August's User of the Month

Posted by Moran Shayovitch on Aug 2, 2015 10:25:00 AM

 

John Calvert has 18 years of experience designing IT systems and software for leading enterprises and government agencies, from Nortel to the National Resource Council and Department of Justice of Canada. He is currently the lead architect for the Sharepoint system at the Canadian House of Commons.

 

John is also passionate about speaking, teaching and training the Toronto IT community.  His talks are often based on real-world deployments and common errors in the wild, but bringing complex enterprise systems out to his talks required more hardware and hassle than he could manage.

Using CloudShare, he built lab environments that meeting attendees could not just see, but join, share, and rebuild!  John previously shared his CloudShare experience in a detailed post in his personal blog, View his post here.  

 

Let’s raise a toast for John Calvert - August’s user of the month!
