The ability to replicate our on-prem VMs to Azure and store them there is a huge benefit to us and our ability to enable low cost business continuance plans. Would love to see how we can leverage Azure storage and IaaS on demand as a DR target as well as testing our DR plans.
Connecting our corporate network infrastructure to our Azure IaaS space adds quite a bit of value but seems to be a bit complex in its current form. Would love to see new solutions or a simplification of things.
Hi Mark, The Azure infrastructure itself is quite fascinating to me. Any chance we will hear if MS will ever release a scaled-down version based on Server 2012 for on-prem usage? I would love to go completely decentralized for our private cloud. Would be great if we did not have to rely on shared storage and could distribute both compute and storage across many independent nodes within our own datacenter and centrally manage all it with MS tools.
Hi Ben, curious to get more information on this session, I have attended your sessions in the past and they have always been very well done and informative. Any chance this will include a preview of new Hyper-V tech?
Would love to hear how MSFT plans to integrate Azure IaaS with on-prem 2012 server in the future - the ability to move VMs quickly and easily between cloud / on-prem would be great for many scenarios including DR.
