Patterns and Practices for the Hybrid World
Microsoft Services helps customers around the world build apps and services to connect to their employees, customers, and citizens. Increasingly, we're seeing these delivered through a hybrid model, leveraging capabilities from their own datacenters, from hosters, and from Windows Azure. This session provides an overview of the architectures we're seeing in the real world, why our customers are choosing these approaches, and how these models can be applied to lower cost and time to value, while providing better experiences for users, developers, and IT professionals. We look at patterns and practices we use to help customers build dynamic on-premises infrastructure with Microsoft System Center and Windows Server, how to connect that infrastructure to Windows Azure, and how successful IT organizations are repositioning themselves as service providers to their businesses.
