Join this session to learn how Microsoft IT is successfully managing the Application lifecycle in their System Center 2012 Configuration Manager R2 environment with zero touch. Deep technical overview on how Microsoft IT automates LOB application publishing by leveraging System Center Orchestrator, Configuration Manager cmdlets, PowerShell scripts, and Team Foundation Server. This session covers the key stages of the application lifecycle for Windows 8.1, Windows Phone, Windows RT, and iOS – starting with Application object creation, deployment, supersedence, and ending with the retirement/removal of the application object from the environment—all this without the administrator having to lift a finger.
SharePoint consultants and developers work in projects, and most SharePoint environments are large. As a best practice, the development and test environments should be as equal as possible to the production environment. In reality, SharePoint development and test environments are not as equal as possible. Based on Microsoft Azure Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), we have a chance to get the environment as equal as possible and to speed up projects and reduce project cost from planning through final deployment of hardware requirements on production environments. Consultants can act faster, or shall we say "very fast". This session demonstrates how to use the Microsoft Azure Management Portal, Windows PowerShell or Microsoft System Center to manage many environments like SharePoint farms in Azure and to deploy the 1-n farms via script, to manage more than 100 cores and terra bytes of VHDs on-demand. Learn how to scale your SharePoint environment up and down, and switch off all resources to scale based on your needs on-demand. Learn to load test on-demand in SharePoint on Azure, for better quality in your production environment. At the end of the Session, you'll understand the latest thinking on Infrastructure as a Service for SharePoint, and the difference from standard hosting. We also discuss how to design a SharePoint Farm for Azure IaaS for Scale-up/-down, and out and off. Focusing on SharePoint and SQL Server and BI, we demonstrate the mechanism to enroll large environments in minutes and to bring them into a very low-cost state for non-business hours, based on demand. With this thinking, IT environments like SharePoint are designed for high availability. At the end of session you'll see the cloud and Azure from a new perspective, and see that hosting is not all the time 24x7, with high availability.
Il PaaS è l'acceleratore di qualsiasi business, sia quelli in crescita rapida, che quelli maturi. Per i primi, i WebSites rappresentano la via veloce per ottenere un risultato talvolta complesso; per i secondi, essi rappresentano un modo per ridurre la governance e i relativi costi, pur mantenendo in primo piano i requisiti di scalabilità e affidabilità. Vedremo quindi come WAWS è l'acceleratore del nostro posizionamento sul web, utilizzando un importante caso di studio di una emergente realtà italiana.
