Building a Web-Scale Private Cloud (without Losing Your Cool)
The adoption of virtualization and cloud has created a demand for IT infrastructure that is not only high performing, but also simple to manage, VM-centric and highly scalable. In this technical session, we discuss how to create the ideal infrastructure for Hyper-V and virtualized Windows applications, that is always available and literally invisible to the virtualization team. We also explore real-world deployments of private and hybrid cloud using web-scale IT infrastructure for Hyper-V and Microsoft Azure. The session ends with a discussion of operational best practices including use of PowerShell to automate complex tasks such as dev environment creations and automating disaster recovery failover.
