Azure IaaS Week for IT Pros: Day 2 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 TWO- a comprehensive list of topics and Speaker Bios you can review before the big event on December 1st through the 4th at

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

Day 2:  Dive Deep into Networking, Storage and Disaster Recovery Scenarios

. YushWang

Yu-Shun Wang is a Program Manager in Azure Networking team working on Hybrid Connectivity and Network Virtual Appliances in Azure. In his free time, he likes camping, skiing, and swimming.

Your infrastructure in Azure can be isolated and purpose built for public consumption. How do you design your virtual networks and access controls to ensure everything is as desired? Now that you understand the fundamentals of Virtual Networks in Azure, let’s dive deeper into hybrid connectivity options using Site to Site VPNs, allowing your datacenter to extend to your Azure environment.  Concerned about speed and latency for your applications? Don’t want your internal data being routed over the public internet? Explore what ExpressRoute can offer as the ultimate connectivity option

Unlike other cloud providers, our story on storage is consistent across all of our Azure offerings. This means as new technologies are introduced to our storage platform, they become available to all of our services in a timely manner. Learn how to get the maximum IOps for your workloads and what new technologies are coming soon.

Disaster Recovery and OffSite replicas of critical workloads used to be a very costly and complex thing to orchestrate. With System Center and Microsoft Azure, you can leverage Azure Site Recovery to coordinate a site failover from one datacenter to another. We recently announced that Microsoft datacenters could be a possible failover target, provided you are aware of the dependencies. Lean how to set up Azure Site Recovery to use your Azure environment as your replica destination to coordinate a failover before disaster strikes. If you’re not ready for a full solution, but looking to migrate specific machines from On-Premises to Azure, we have you covered in this session as well. See how InMage can migrate your workloads from VMware, AWS and Hyper-V to your Azure IaaS environment.

When transitioning your skillset from on-premises to a more hybrid cloud environment, you have to also transition your management techniques from GUI and One-Off solutions to a more reproducible Automated environment.  Learn the ins and outs of Azure Automation Services and the new Automation Script Gallery. Leverage existing scripts or publish your own for others to use in their environments. Looking to take this to the next level – bring in some new DesiredStateConfiguration skills to standardize, configure and maintain your deployments at scale in the cloud.

It is going to be an action packed day!
