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. You're probably using 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
