PASS Summit is just a month away. That means there’s only just under a month left to get signed up for Denny’s Azure precon. You might be wondering why you want to take a full day session on Azure infrastructure. And that’s an excellent question. The answer is quite simple. Azure is a massive platform, with a huge number of moving parts which are constantly changing. In this session, we aren’t going to be spending a lot of time on our good friend SQL Server (or SQL DB for that matter) we’ll be focusing on the rest of the Azure platform.
This includes components such as:
- Azure AD
- Subscriptions (Billing)
- VMs in General
- Resource Manager
- Classic Deployments (like 2 minutes tops)
- Open Source
- Scale Sets
- RBAC (now called IAM)
If you have services in Azure today, if you are going to be moving services to Microsoft Azure in the near future, or you just want to get a better understanding of how things work in the Azure cloud, this is the session for you. At this end of this session, you’ll walk away with a good understanding of how Azure components should be configured, and how your services should be configured within the Azure platform to get the best performance and availability from the platform and your solutions.
You may have seen Joey and I traveling around India in 2016. We were actually delivering content similar to this (this is much newer obviously as Azure has changed a LOT in 12 months) to various customers and partners. If you’re using other consultants to help you with your Azure implementation there’s a decent chance that they’ve taken this training.
Not registered, for PASS? That’s an easy problem to solve. Go register. Already registered for PASS and need to add the precon to your
Already registered for PASS and need to add the precon to your registration? No problem, you just need to email PASS to add it to your registration.
Either way, nice and easy. Using Azure, take the precon. You’ll thank me.
