Have you ever needed to take control of your Windows Azure services but found some of the higher-level tooling just didn't quite fit your needs? While there are many ways to manage your Windows Azure services (PowerShell, Visual Studio, web portal, etc.), it is the Windows Azure Service Management API that ultimately affords us the greatest power and flexibility. By using this API we can automate many common or necessary tasks – potentially creating our own custom tools or processes. In this session we'll see how to get started with the Service Management API, explore features such as working with storage accounts, creating and scaling Cloud Services, and working with Virtual Machines.
Learn about the design and architecture decisions of a multi-thousand user Microsoft Server 2012 VDI/RDSH deployment. From Server, Storage, Networking down to the Client, this session provides an overview of the overall solution architecture based on Dell Active Infrastructure. Dell Active Infrastructure delivers modular and automated converged infrastructure solutions combining Servers, Storage, Networking and Infrastructure Management into an integrated and optimized system for Microsoft Server 2012 Desktop Virtualization workloads. Also learn about the design decisions around CPU, Memory and Storage that led to the Reference Architecture. Highlights of this session include: Deployment choices from Proof of Concept to large scale production: Dell’s 10 Seat Proof of Concept Solution to a “Datacenter in a Box” with Dell VRTX; Architectural choices and decision points for a scalable, multi-thousand user Microsoft Desktop Virtualization deployment: “Why does the Reference Architecture look like this?”; Storage sizing and guidance for various Desktop Virtualization workloads and user types: ”Let’s talk about IOPS”; Impact of Virtualized Graphics with Hyper-V on the performance and sizing of Microsoft Server 2012 Desktop Virtualization: “Do GPU’s matter?”; and Live demonstration of the management console and the Windows 8 VDI Remote FX experience “How do I manage this and what is the user experience like?”
.NET is present both on the desktop, the server and on the mobile platforms. This creates an immense need for code reusability across these three domains. Portable libraries in .NET is the solution to this problem. This talk will focus on how we can apply this solution to achieve an architecture with maximum code reusability. We will cover code being used both on the server and on desktop and mobile clients.
Objective: Learn how to use portable class library for code sharing in Windows apps
