The Job of an IT Pro is changing in every aspect. Windows Azure is there as an extend to your domain. Hence Windows Azure even gives you opportunities in areas you might not even have been involved yet. In this session we hand you some practical tips for the SDLC and really focus on those areas that you need to master to better understand the people you have to work with in your everyday environment. Topics here are maintenance and deployment of applications, and the set up of environments.
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?”
Why should developers care about IaaS? Think of your Windows Azure Datacenter as an Object Model(OM). "IaaS OM" can help us build cost effective systems by only turning on the parts of system that are needed and when they are needed. Additionally, systems built using IaaS can not only be more fault tolerant but also scale in the direction of business growth. We will begin this session with a review of key Windows Azure IaaS concepts including compute, storage and VNET. Next we will walk the "IaaS OM" using Windows Azure Power Shell SDK, including a discussion of bootstrapping VMs. Finally, we will walk through a collection of IaaS scenarios including virtual branch office, single pane of glass for managing on-premises and Azure based resources and hybrid applications that combine IaaS & PaaS.
