If you've been working with Azure Infrastructure Services for a while, you're probably familiar with Virtual Machines running within the boundary of a Cloud Service. Affinity Groups and the imperative Service Management API, whether you call it directly, use the Classic Azure Management Portal or PowerShell. However, there's a new Azure in town with a new Management Portal. This new Azure has different management APIs powered by Azure Resource Manager and a new set of Infrastructure Services known as IaaS v2.

This session will introduce you to what's new in Azure IaaS v2, from the new service architecture, new resources and capabilities; to the Azure Resource Manager. You'll also learn how to migrate your existing IaaS v1 resources and some of the transition challenges you may encounter.

You will learn:

  • All about Azure IaaS v2
  • How to work with IaaS v2 using ARM
  • Migration strategies and transition challenges
