If you have found yourself thinking…

“Changing our existing apps to run on PaaS is going to require a lot of refactoring. We want to run our applications in the Cloud as-is.”

“We cannot migrate to Azure SQL Database because our database relies on SQL CLR-based stored procedures. We want to use a full version of SQL Server.”

“We want the Cloud to be a seamless extension of our data center, not a walled garden. We want to use our existing IT setup and tools (AD, SCOM etc.) to manage the on-premises and Cloud-based applications.”

…then this session is for you. This session is for anyone who wants to get better understand of the recently-announced Windows Azure Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offering. After a brief overview of the Azure Platform as a Service (PaaS) model, we will focus on key IaaS concepts. Additionally, we will walk you through a number of scenarios enabled by Azure IaaS and several demonstrations. We will cover  IaaS Core Concepts, Azure Virtual Machine, Disks & Images, Persistence, VM export / Import, Grouping and  Azure Virtual Network.
