Using Azure Site Recovery to move Dev-Test workloads up to Azure

Webinar

Sound interesting?

Tired of having to maintain a local DevTest lab or cobble one together on crappy hardware leftover in your office in order to support a project? How about thinking outside of the box and migrating that workload up to Microsoft Azure in order to run it on demand up in a secure public cloud? Does it run off physical hardware, VMWare or Hyper-V? No problems.  Try out Azure Site Recovery as one way to move that Dev-Test workload / project up into an Azure Datacenter near you.

Picture it.  An exact synchronized copy of what you are working on – replicated and failed over to an isolated environment. ASR is one tool you can use to do this.

I’m going to be talking about this on a webinar tomorrow morning (10 am Pacific time) and showing you how to get started with a trial.

Sign up at this link, join in on the webinar and ask your questions.

I’m looking forward to chatting with you!

Microsoft Mechanics: Hybrid Infrastructure Automation with Azure Resource Manager Templates

Here’s a new video series I am participating in with the larger Microsoft engine: Microsoft Mechanics… I was on deck to work with Corey Sanders on explaining Azure Resource Manager and ARM templates.  Turned out great – have a look and SUBSCRIBE to the YouTube channel to keep up to date as new episodes kick out.

If you’ve ever had to set up a test or production environment for something like SharePoint, you know there are several pieces to set up – like Active Directory, SQL for your backend data, and then your SharePoint servers. While it’s possible to automate this with advanced scripting or level 400 task sequencer skills, imagine just choosing a template or manifest file and clicking go to spin up a dozen or so VMs all wired together and talking to each other. That is effectively what Azure Resource Manager templates do and what Corey Sanders lead engineer for Azure compute, demonstrates on the show. He also steps back to illustrate how they work as a unified resource automation model for both Microsoft Azure Cloud resources and on premises with the upcoming Azure Stack.

Cool new stuff in Automation world with Azure Automation in OMS

I was approached by Joe Levy to do a quick shoot about all the new stuff you can do with Automation in the new Azure Automation in OMS… I had previously done some Azure automation and Azure Automation Gallery a while back – it was time for a refresh.

Check out the video to see myself, Joe Levy, and a surprise guest – Jeffrey Snover as we explore some of the new features of Azure Automation, as part of the Microsoft Operations Management Suite.  It’s freakin’ powerful, reliable and easy to use not just on Azure resources, but also LOCAL resources as well for Windows or Linux.
