In this session we cover different aspects of Hyper-V Recovery Manager, an enterprise-scale Disaster Recovery solution to provide a single click failover in case of disaster (e.g., automation of overall DR workflow using with sequencing, manual actions, etc. to provide both application and site level DR). We cover the most frequently asked end-point support from our customers: Azure to help save precious CAPEX. Learn how to enable Azure as a Disaster Recovery point in a secure manner and seamless management of failover, failback type activities using Azure IaaS VM. Network connection—back to datacenter and to the clients—is one of the top challenges in setup of your DR infrastructure and we cover how to simplify networking for disaster recovery setup. The session also covers enhancements to the solution for the private datacenter to the private datacenter scenario.
Windows Azure enables you to develop and test applications faster, at reduced cost, and with the flexibility to deploy in the cloud or on-premises. Visual Studio 2013 is the best IDE for cloud development and test – and enables powerful scenarios including running Visual Studio in Azure hosted Virtual Machines, and the ability to manage cloud resources right from the IDE. In this video we'll review in detail what Windows Azure offers for MSDN Subscribers, how to take advantage of pre-configured virtual machines, and go through demos such as how to use PowerShell to setup and later clean-up a Windows Azure test environment.
Technical debt slows down the ability of development teams to make changes in code, whether it's adding new features, or fixing issues. DevOps aims to remove hurdles from getting features deployed to production by standardizing and automating the delivery pipeline, and Agile processes aim to make the act of development itself more efficient and incremental. But, although both are necessary to be deliver business value faster, they are not sufficient where the code is carrying a lot of debt: development remains a bottleneck in that case. This talk will show how active management of technical debt can be incorporated into an Agile, DevOps workflow, by measuring debt as part of continuous integration, then using baselines and policies to prevent new debt being introduced and to manage down existing debt. It will be illustrated with demos that combine the capabilities of Visual Studio Online, Team Foundation Server, Visual Studio and SonarQube.
