I have the pleasure of presenting on Windows Azure IAAS next week in San Francisco! On September 5th, YOU are welcome to join me for FREE, as long as seats last!
(Oh, and you have to cover your travel costs) Smile

This event will be held at the Microsoft San Francisco Office starting Thursday, September 05 at 9:00 AM and ending around 4:00PM.

At this ITcamp I will show you that YOU can have the best of both worlds! With Windows Azure, you can easily extend an on-premises network to embrace the power and scale of the cloud – securely and seamlessly. These Hybrid Cloud scenarios present real solutions that you can implement today to solve pressing IT issues such as:

  • Right-sizing Storage Investments
  • Protecting Data with Off-site Backups
  • Business Continuance and Disaster Recovery
  • Cost-effective, On-demand Dev/Test Environments
  • Internet-scale Web Sites… And MORE!

Join me for this FREE full-day hands-on event to experience the power of Hybrid Cloud. I will guide you through the process of jumpstarting your knowledge on Windows Azure Storage, Virtual Machines and Virtual Networking for key IT Pro scenarios. Complete all of the hands-on labs and you’ll walk away with a fully functional Windows Server 2012 cloud-based test lab running in Windows Azure!
