Description

You are a Windows administrator for the Brisbane office of Globomantics. The datacenter at the Brisbane office was destroyed in a recent flooding of the Brisbane river, which has lead the organization to reevaluate how much infrastructure needs to be kept on premise and how much can be deployed to the public cloud through Windows Azure IaaS. As a part of the cloud pilot program, you will investigate the feasibility of moving different on-site services to Windows Azure IaaS and make a determination about how Globomantics can leverage different aspects of Windows Azure IaaS's functionality. The course will be designed around what can be accomplished with a Windows Azure trial subscription. Instructor demonstrations will be recorded using virtual machines hosted on Windows Azure as well as through a local virtual machine that will be used to interact with the Windows Azure management website.
