Azure IaaS Week for IT Pros: Day 1 Speaker Lineup – Regular IT guy

Azure IaaS Week for IT Pros: Day 1 Speaker Lineup

I talked about this event I’ve been wrangling speakers for a while back, so I thought I’d put together a quick little post broken down by DAY with all the details about speakers and their sessions in one spot. I’ve been capturing these quick intros for each speaker with details about their session and also some fun tidbits about them outside of work. This is the ONE STOP SHOP for day ONE – a comprehensive list of topics and Speaker Bios you can review before the big event on December 1st through the 4th at http://channel9.msdn.com.

There are four 1 hour sessions per day, each wrapped around a theme. Todays theme is:

Day 1:  Establish the Foundation: Core IaaS Infrastructure Technical Fundamentals

Mark Russinovich will share his vision on what Azure is today and where Microsoft is taking it in the future. As one of the most trusted Technical Fellows at Microsoft and with his new role as CTO for Azure, Mark has a unique perspective of how Azure is architected and what individuals can do to get the most out of this platform.

Who better than Corey Sanders to take us through the nuts and bolts of what Azure IaaS is and how it works for IT professionals. Corey leads the team that designed and created Azure IaaS and is very passionate about all that it can do. He will move rapidly from the fundamentals to advanced configurations and how to use and interact with your environment.


Drew picks up where Corey left off, going even deeper. He’ll focus on the specifics of how to get the most from your Windows workloads with Azure IaaS.

How do you design your IaaS implementations for optimal performance, maximum redundancy and geo-diversity? How do new machine series gain you better performance and leverage new hardware capabilities in our datacenters? Learn how to design your systems to minimize reboots and downtime due to user error or planned maintenance. This session has it all the answers and more.

It is going to be an action packed day!
