The Ops Team is a (sometimes) weekly show where (occasionally) 4 Technical Evangelists specializing in IT Operations get together to give you the deets on their 4 areas of expertise: Microsoft Azure/Cloud, On-premises datacenter technologies, Enterprise Mobility / Windows and DevOps.
This week on The Ops Team, we're stuck with 2 of the regulars, with Matt and Oguz bringing you up to speed with the latest IT news and David taking some well-deserved time off to celebrate the birth of his latest family addition. In the news, Matt gets all patriotic with the announcement of new datacenters in the UK, powering Azure and Office 365 services, and shares some great resources for learning all about Azure Automation DSC on Channel 9. Oguz brings us up to speed with the latest developments in VSTS along with some useful tools to increase availability of roles on Azure. Matt rounds out the show with some Azure Stack coolness ahead of Ignite, some OMS insight, and rounds up with a cool Docker video.
Here's all the links and info on the topics we covered, along with the time stamps to jump to specific points in the video.
