This hybrid nature of Azure deployments is the focus of this session.
If you're like most enterprises, commercial or government, you have your existing servers and IT infrastructure (either on-premises in your own datacenters or in 3rd party co-location facilities). You also have an IT staff to manage these assets. So as you think about using the public cloud, you're not thinking of it in a silo. Ideally, you'd want to integrate the public cloud with existing IT, manage it no differently, and even have applications with parts running on and off-premises. This hybrid nature of Azure deployments is the focus of this session. Specifically, we will discuss four hybrid scenarios and describe how you can bring Azure to your enterprise. These scenarios include:
- Azure Website accessing on-premises AD via a hybrid connection
- Setup dev/test sandbox in the cloud combined with services such as load testing and app insight, seamlessly brought together with site-to-site VPN or Express Route
- Managing Azure and on-premises resources through a single pane of glass - through System Center and Azure Pack
- Setup SQL 12 Always On secondary in Azure with auto failover
