System Center 2012 SP1 Explained Storing VM in Windows Azure (Part 25 of 31) by Yung Chou

The 25th edition of 31 Days of Server (VMs) in the Cloud is now live at System Center 2012 SP1 Explained: Storing VM.  In this edition, Yung Chou explains how to store and copy VMs to Windows Azure using System Center 2012.

They are actually quite interesting operations in implementation.
