Regardless of whether you’re building on a private infrastructure, in a hybrid environment, or deploying to a public cloud, there are optimizations you can make in storage and availability that will improve the manageability and performance of your application and environment. Join this session to hear more about the end-to-end scale, performance, and availability improvements coming with Windows Server. We dive into deploying and managing storage using SMB shares, show the improved experience in everyday storage management such as deploying patches to the cloud, and share how to leverage faster live migration when responding to new load demands. Starting with Windows Server 2012, Microsoft offered a complete storage stack from the hardware up, leveraging commodity JBODs surfaced as Virtual Disks via Storage Spaces, hosted by Scale-Out File Server nodes and servicing client requests via SMB 3.0. Now, with major features added in Windows Server 2012 R2 (e.g., Storage Tiering and SMB Redirection), the story gets even better! As a critical piece in the Modern Datacenter (i.e., a Software-Defined Datacenter), SDS plays a crucial role in improving utilization and increasing cost efficiency, scalability, and elasticity. This session empowers you to architect, implement, and monitor this key capability. Come learn how to design, deploy, configure, and automate a storage solution based completely on Windows technologies, as well as how to troubleshoot and manage via the in-box stack and Microsoft System Center. Live demos galore!
If you're building an app, chances are you want to monetize that app to bring you an additional income. There are different ways you can monetize your apps, and in this session, Matthew talks about them, compares them one to another and highlights the best scenarios for you to get the more revenue out of your app. He also describes how to expand your app's reach through localizing it to multiple languages, the tools available for you to do so, and best practices using those tools.
