Building Cloud Services with Windows Server 2012 R2, Microsoft System Center 2012 R2 and the Windows Azure Pack

Sign in to queue


Microsoft’s Cloud OS vision is to deliver a consistent datacenter platform and set of experiences regardless of deployment location.  This means that customers can choose to run their business from their own datacenter, in Windows Azure, or in a hosted datacenter and will benefit from common technologies and similar experiences across these environments.  Windows Server 2012 R2 and Microsoft System Center 2012 R2 are the foundation of this Cloud OS vision in private and hosted datacenters.  Microsoft is also taking new services developed in Windows Azure and bringing them to Windows Server-based environments allowing service providers the ability to offer these great experiences to their customers.

    Have spent a great deal of time working with the 1.0 and the intricate things required to get it up and running.  Would like to know more about how things have changed for Azure Pack behind the scenes, configuration, installation, hooks into System Center and where (not just VMM, looks like Service Manager DW is in there too) as well as governance - hooking up our Service Manager Service Requests, VMM Templates, Operations Monitoring, how will I go about putting things into maintenance mode and patching them, patching the hosted VMs, etc.!
