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.
Keeping track of all the various resources used by a solution is a daunting task. Azure Resource Manager enables you to group multiple resources into a single logical group. With the ability to save the group as a template, we can reuse it for future solutions. In this session we'll explore how the Azure Resource Manager can be used to better manage our Azure solutions. We'll dive deep into creating resources and manipulating the Resource Manager templates. In the end, you'll be able to unlock new, powerful ways to manage your Azure resources.
