There is a new offering for the SharePoint Deployment Planning Services (SDPS). It is for and upgrade track. Partners familiar with the SDPS will now be able to offer this starting December 10th for their clients that already have SharePoint Server 2007 and are looking to upgrade to SharePoint 2010.
The best part about this is the VHD Microsoft is going to make available this time around will have way more "stuff" with SharePoint 2010 on it and yet have a much smaller footprint. Let’s hope by much smaller they get far below the 40GB BI VHD I am running from them now.
They will have over 1200 fake AD users to demo OCS and social networking as well as Performance Point and some cool BCS features.
Partners will be able to download this from the partner and SDPS site December 10, 2009
This is out today 1/22/10. If you are a partner you know where to get it.
