Cortana Analytics is a fully managed big data and advanced analytics suite that helps you transform your data into intelligent action. Come to this two-part session to learn how you can do "big data" processing and storage in Cortana Analytics. In the first part, we will provide an overview of the processing and storage services. We will then talk about the patterns and use cases which make up most big data solutions. In the second part, we will go hands-on, showing you how to get started today with writing batch/interactive queries, real-time stream processing, or NoSQL transactions all over the same repository of data. Crunch petabytes of data by scaling out your computation power to any sized cluster. Store any amount of unstructured data in its native format with no limits to file or account size. All of this can be done with no hardware to acquire or maintain and minimal time to setup giving you the value of "big data" within minutes.
There's no denying that virtualization has dramatically changed the datacenter. Virtualization, however, is not without its limitations, and it's not ideal for all use cases. Containerization takes virtualization to the next level. In many ways, containerization is an evolution of virtualization, and some would argue that the lines between the two are blurry and semantic. This session will help you understand Windows Server and Hyper-V Containers, in addition to how we're integrating the Container ecosystem through partnerships with platforms such as Docker.
IP address configuration, domain join, computer rename, firewall configuration, network configuration testing, role and feature install, virtual machine creation. There are a large number of everyday tasks that server administrators still do with the GUI out of habit, even though there are faster ways to accomplish the same things in PowerShell. In this session we'll show you a number of single line PowerShell commands that you can use to replace systems administration tasks that you still perform using the GUI because you've been doing it that way since the days of Windows NT.
