When companies endeavor to move their applications and services to the cloud, they tend to worry more about security up front. Interestingly, platforms such as Azure provide an even more secure environment than most self-managed co-location facilities can hope to offer, not to mention the plethora of features on the platform that help you secure your solutions end to end. In this session Michele will review the mini-avalanche that comprises Azure security across all features. Taking the architect's view of the platform, she'll cover best practices for securing Azure solutions end to end and discuss the tangential benefits of moving to Azure and how it can help you with checking the boxes on those pesky security surveys.
In this session we learn more about the different deployment options, management capabilities and administrative configurations along with best practices for Azure RemoteApp. We will look into best practices for creating template images in order to deploy line-of-business applications to including how to verify applications function properly within a RemoteApp deployment. Finally, we will discuss and provide an overview of the different deployment models available and how this compares to the Citrix XenApp
Analysts predict that there will be anywhere from 24 to 200 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Imagine every device as an object that is capable of exchanging voluntary information about itself and its environment as well as executing commands via APIs to act on their environments. What's more, the analytical insights gleaned from this data will have the potential to transform existing business while creating new ones. The Internet of Things is here, and the heterogeneity of devices, messaging considerations, security constraints, volume of data and compute requirements are significant. In this talk, seven-time MVP and Microsoft Azure MVP Rick G. Garibay will provide a deep dive into the various ways in which devices can be connected today and how a service-assisted communication model is really key to tackling the myriad of constraints that exist today. We'll explore the strengths and weaknesses of various communication models and application protocols and how the Azure Reykjavik Device Gateway Accelerator addresses your needs today while providing the extensibility and scale to meet your needs as your IoT strategy grows. You'll learn how to get up and running on your Azure subscription with the Master and Partition roles, how to register a device and flow telemetry, inquires, commands and notifications through the Reykjavik fabric leveraging Azure Storage, HD Insight along with a look at how you can extend the fabric with custom protocol gateway and telemetry adapters.
