Microsoft Virtual Academy: Windows Azure for IT Pros

I envision a world where new businesses starting up don’t have to invest in any server infrastructure at all

Folks, If you have been to any of my live presentations, recently, you have probably hear m get super jazzed about Windows Azure Infrastructure as a Service. I truly think this is the future of infrastructure for all businesses. I envision a world where new businesses starting up don’t have to invest in any server infrastructure at all and simply create everything they need in the cloud.

If you would like to learn more about Windows Azure IaaS and how Windows Azure Cloud Computing can transform your IT Department, check out this Microsoft Virtual Academy Jump Start: Windows Azure for IT Pros!

This fast-paced MVA Jump Start is designed to help IT departments understand why it's time to start the process of extending infrastructure to the cloud. Microsoft Technical Evangelist David Tesar and Azure Group Technical Product Manager David Aiken will leverage a demo-rich and engaging team-teaching style to illustrate how Windows Azure Infrastructure Services (e.g., Virtual Machines, Virtual Networks, Storage, Active Directory) makes it easy to safely migrate, extend, run, manage and monitor common workloads in the cloud.

Additionally, they'll cover SharePoint and extending System Center 2012 SP1 during this course. This is one Jump Start you don't want to miss!

 

Cheers!
