Face it... SCOM is a nice tool for monitoring and we as S(T/C)O(R)M troopers know this all too well. But wouldn't it be cool to use its unknown force to make all the data floating around in the SCOM galaxy comprehensible for every entity out there? Join this session to uncover the ins and outs about creating your ultimate dashboard good enough to have Darth Vader monitor the Death Star. Dieter will guide you through the mysteries of creating these dashboards and will provide tips and tricks for building unique dashboards completed in just a couple of clicks vs. light years.
This session is all about making the switch from programmatic infrastructure deployment ("Dear Azure, here's a list of everything I want you do, in excruciating detail"), to declarative end-state deployment ("Dear Azure, here's what I want it to look like - go, make it happen"). Azure Resource Manager enables us to define what we want our infrastructure end-state to look like using template-driven deployment. In this session we will drill deep into Azure Resource Manager and templates, and deploy live solutions.
The rise of public cloud computing has brought with it a new set of security considerations that are not widely understood. With a unique perspective from working on the security systems of a public cloud, Mark describes public cloud service provider and cloud customer threats, including malicious insiders, shared technology, data breaches, and data loss. For each, he assesses the risks and explores the value of mitigations like encryption-at-rest, encryption-in-flight, and other security best practices, separating hype from reality so that you can make educated decisions as your organization moves to the cloud.
