Windows Azure

Join us at our Windows Azure IT Camps and learn hands-on about Azure Virtual Machines. In literally minutes you'll have a Windows Server, or even a Linux virtual machine up and running in the cloud, while still staying in complete control. Need a virtual machine for just a few hours to do compatibility testing, or do you need to host a secondary AD domain controller for high availability, or maybe you want to put in place a DRS site?

At this event you'll get technical, hands-on experience with Azure Virtual Machines, discovering key scenarios such as migrating existing workloads (e.g. SQL Server) to Azure, hosting Active Directory in the cloud, and managing virtual machine images. In addition, we’ll show how you can securely connect your on-premise network to virtual machines in Azure and expand your network with unlimited computing resources.

Experience the power and flexibility of the Windows Azure platform through a series of hands-on labs:

  • Introduction to Windows Azure Virtual Machines
  • Deploying Active Directory in Windows Azure
  • Understanding Virtual Machine Imaging with Capture
