System requirements and support options
The Azure Pack is a collection of Microsoft Azure technologies available to Microsoft customers at no additional cost. Once installed in your datacenter, the Azure Pack integrates with Microsoft System Center and Windows Server to help provide a self-service portal for managing services such as websites, Virtual Machines, and Service Bus; a portal for administrators to manage resource clouds; scalable web hosting; and more. In this lab, we showcase how to create a VM Role and install a new partnering VHD into System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager which will include packaging images via Windows PowerShell. We explore the functionality and experience within the Admin portal. We also explore the gallery and plans as well as the tenant experience to showcase how the various assets are rendered and accessed for availability.
