Given prior history, Microsoft, Linux and OSS are not the terms you see often together in one sentence but the times have changed. In this session we will show how the new Microsoft is changing this perception and why Microsoft Azure is a great place to build and run your Linux and OSS apps and workloads. We will outline our strategy and showcase some of the patterns and practices for building great apps using Linux and OSS on Microsoft Azure.
In this session, Sam will give an overview of the new Hybrid Connections feature. With this feature, customers can easily connect their cloud services with their existing on premises resources. Sam will demonstrate the various capabilities of this new service and will discuss the advanced features, such as load balancing, Always On connectivity, connection cardinality, automation and performance.
In this session, we discuss how to transform the economics of hybrid clouds built with Cloud OS. We look at the process of metering granular usage and cost data for Microsoft System Center 2012 R2, Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V, Windows Azure Pack, Azure public cloud, and other non-Microsoft IT resources, and then transform it into actionable financial intelligence. We discuss a variety of use cases, such as multi-tenant chargeback and billing, demand forecasting, profit management, technology trends, and what-if modeling, to get a better understanding of how enterprises and service providers are using IT Financial Management to optimize costs and drive greater business agility with the Microsoft cloud platform and Cloud Cruiser.
Serving up content on the Internet is something our web sites do daily. But are we doing this in the fastest way possible? How are users in faraway countries experiencing our apps? Why do we have three webservers serving the same content over and over again? In this session, we'll explore the Windows Azure Content Delivery Network or CDN, a service which makes it easy to serve up blobs, videos and other content from servers close to our users. We'll explore simple file serving as well as some more advanced, dynamic edge caching scenarios.
