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.
Data is important, whether it's stored on- or offline it's always good to have backups. Protecting your assets is a serious and cautious task. With the coming of hybrid solutions and configurations we get a lot of possibilities to do cloud backup. In this talk I'll talk about what the Azure platform can provide you as support for backing up your assets: topics brought to attention are Blob Storage, Backup Vault, SQL Server and SQL databases, geo-redundancy and much, much more. This will be backed with out-of-the box tools, partner tools and common tools.
