Debunking Azure Myths: Azure Doesn’t Scale up to large VMs

A lot of myths and misinformation is out there about what you can do with Microsoft Azure and what using Azure is like. I figured it was time to debunk some of these myths by talking to the engineering team to see what they have to say.

MYTH: Azure Doesn’t Scale up to large VMs

People believe that the compute power in Azure is not anywhere near cutting edge and built for performance that demanding workloads require. I know this just isn’t true, so I tracked down Kenaz Kwa, PM in the Azure IaaS Team to talk to him about all the options of compute families and what regions they are available in.

Check out the Azure VM Sizing and pricing page for details on VM sizes and region availability.

This is the Fourth video in a series of post about Debunking Azure Myths. Stay tuned for the next episode.

Question of the week: [19:25] If you had the ability to inject a new test for robots into the DARPA Challenge, what would it be?

Windows Server 2003 EOL episode of TechNet Radio

Look at that – I made it big time. I finally am interviewed as a guest on TechNet Radio by Kevin Remde! The topic of this episode is Windows Server 2003 End Of Life – Part 2. We’re talkin’ planning, migration tools and resources to help you with the task of moving data and workloads off 2003 to something a bit more modern.  Check it out!

 

Behind the Scenes to explain Storage Replica, RDMA and SMB3

I got pinged a while back to help out the FileServer team with explaining StorageReplica in “Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview 2″ – I of course jumped at the opportunity.   I met up with Ned Pyle to talk about options and we quickly came to the decision that we wanted to do something different. Instead of your traditional whiteboarding piece (yes there are whiteboards in use, but none were hurt during the filming of this video) lets get down to a lower level of discussion and involve some RDMA parts and SMB3 parts as well as a possible field trip to see a test rig.

Sign me up!

Here’s the product of our collaboration. Very cool video, nice depth on how everything works together AND a field trip to see a couple of test Rigs in their test lab.

Make sure to follow @NerdPyle on twitter – yes he finally got himself an account. The FileServer team main blog can be found at http://blogs.technet.com/b/filecab where you will find a bunch of screencast videos Ned and team have been putting together around these and other TP2 technologies.

Azure Tuesdays With Corey: A little bit about the Planning Cycle
