Microsoft: Introduction to Microsoft Azure IAAS

– Expanding or upgrading on-premise compute and storage resources can be an expensive endeavor and many organizations are putting off such upgrades and replacements due to capital expenditure concerns.

As more organizations are finding  themselves in this situation, many are turning to the operational expenditure route that the public cloud offers in addition to numerous other advantages.

This session will serve as an introduction to Azure IAAS, with a heavy focus on Virtual Machines hosted inside of Azure. Azure will be introduced and discussed and the session will wrap up with demos of the Azure pricing calculator and the Azure Management Portal.
