Test & Dev on Azure

Learn how Microsoft Azure can help create faster development and test cycles for your applications.  Learn how to rapidly self-provision as many virtual machines as you need for your application development and testing in the cloud without waiting for hardware, procurement or internal processes.  Learn how to connect globally to your on-premises network with Microsoft Azure Virtual Network and confidently scale up, scale out, and generate load to deliver applications faster.

Managing the Data Centre with Windows Server and System Center

Want to manage your data centre with ultra-efficiency?  Discover the possibilities of System Center 2012R2 at the Managing the Data Centre with Windows Server & System Center IT Camp.

· Spend most of the day in the suite itself to see how to manage virtual machines at scale and provide complete services which can be monitored, scaled and remediated

· Participate in lively, interactive sessions with your own device

· Try out new techniques in our lab, but you’ll need a Windows device running Windows 7 or later

In addition to learning more about Windows Server and System Center, you will also hear from industry leaders who will be providing insights into industry and technology trends.

Journey to the Cloud : IaaS within Azure

Now is the time to get up to speed quickly with Microsoft Azure. Come along on a Journey to the Cloud and learn how at the Microsoft IT Camp.  Microsoft IT Camps are a no-cost, hands-on technical event for IT Professionals led by Microsoft experts who will be there to guide you through each exercise. Be prepared to come a long way fast:

· Deploy Virtual Machines and services to the Cloud, even if you have very limited knowledge now

· Deploy and test core server infrastructures into the Microsoft Azure cloud

· Make applications and core infrastructure available on the internet

After the camp, you’ll be able to de-provision the Microsoft Azure Virtual Machines, or leave them running so that when you get home you can continue your Microsoft Azure adventure. In addition to learning more about Azure, you will also hear from industry leaders who will be providing insights into industry and technology trends.

Azure for the IT Pro and Infrastructure Architect

Microsoft Azure is an open and flexible cloud platform that enables you to quickly build, deploy and manage applications across a global network of Microsoft-managed data centres. With Microsoft Azure Virtual Machines (VM) you can easily deploy a Windows Server or Linux virtual machine image to a Microsoft data centre either by selecting one from a gallery or bringing your own virtual hard disk (VHD) image. You can also move your VMs back and forth between on-premises and the cloud.   The Microsoft Azure Workshop is a one day deep dive class to get you up to speed on the Microsoft Azure platform from an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) perspective.

Agenda:

· Provisioning Windows and Linux based VMs in the cloud

· Managing images in the cloud through PowerShell

· Deploying Active Directory in Microsoft Azure
