You love Web Access, and we made it even better!
If you are not familiar with web access let me tell you a little about it. The Web Access feature allows you to share the web application on your CloudShare Pro virtual machines to anyone without giving them direct access to the virtual machine. The way it works is for all machines that have Web Access enabled we generate a unique URL that does not change. it will look something like this: http://uvoa98dbebf6c.env.cloudshare.com.

We nerds can never have enough bits! At CloudShare we know how important the software stack on your virtual machine is. And we want to give you more. Here is your chance to help us do that!
But first! An explanation. CloudShare Pro has two types of templates, machine templates, and showcase templates. Machine templates are single VMs with OS, and Software Stack. Minimal configuration is done on these VMs. That is your job, you build things. Our job is to make these templates the best we can. We do that by keeping current on updates, and making sure critical pieces work correctly. Showcase templates are one step further. They are one or more machine environments with OS, software stack, and some specific configuration. We build some of these, and our friends build others.
We’re happy to announce a new capability, CloudShare Classroom Training in CloudShare Enterprise, that enables enterprises, IT training companies, ISVs and universities offer hands-on virtual lab training classes to their customers, partners and prospects. It helps enrich training classes with hands-on labs and live access, and reduces costs of delivering training environments and labs for your physical and remote classrooms.

My name is Juan Carlos González and I work as a Solutions Architect in one of the 6 Microsoft Innovation Centers (MIC) located in Spain.
I’ve always been a technology aficionado, chasing after the latest and greatest technology. As of late there has been no lack of new technology, most amusing not stunning. Cloud in the last two years has been the leading space for innovation and what’s “ new.” However, “Cloud” means so many things. It is not a one size fits all concept. The Cloud can be a SaaS based line of business application. It might be web hosting, or cloud based filed systems. All of these I have been intimately aware of. Boy was I missing out on something new! Read the rest of this entry »
