Topic

What’s New in Windows Azure

Abstract

In June Microsoft announced significant updates to the Windows Azure platform. Most notably, they released new offerings around hosting websites and provisioning virtual machines. We will take a detailed look at these new features and discuss their context within the full suite of Azure services. At the end of this talk, you will have a general understanding of the different execution environments and their corresponding strengths and weaknesses.

Topic

Where the Plan Came Together, and Where It Didn’t

Abstract

In March we talked about building a DIY cloud architecture made of pieces and parts.  At that time the project for which we were going to build it, was just getting started.  Now the project is complete and has been running in production for several months.  Come see the outcomes of building a DIY cloud application.  What worked well and will be used again – as well as what didn’t work so well and needs to be changed on future projects.

Speaker

Bill Klos is a Senior Architect for Centric Consulting and part of Centric’s Innovation & Research group.  He has a bizarre affinity for fixed-width fonts and anything that has an “i” in front of it.
