Windows Azure IT Pro IaaS Jump Start
Join us for ITPro IaaS Day! Learn how to integrate Windows Azure virtual machines (VMs) into your infrastructure. If you’re an experienced IT Pro but you haven’t spent much time with Windows Azure VMs, you’ll appreciate these real-world examples on Windows Azure infrastructure as a service (IaaS). Join Cheryl McGuire and Ronald Beekelaar as they walk you through the basics of creating and configuring VMs, virtual networks, and cross-premises communication. They discuss the "what, why, and how" of virtualization, along with details about managing VMs, how they behave in Windows Azure, and how to configure good network communication to get things up and running in the cloud.
