Partner Cloud Lab Hands-On Training Tour with focus on IaaS and Microsoft Azure

Note: These are NOT Microsoft events.  However, since Microsoft IT-Camps are not open to the public this year, I thought these might be of interest.


Cloud management-as-a-Service provider Infrastructure Guardian and Microsoft offer two days of hands-on training sessions for cloud computing with a focus on Infrastructure-as-a-Service and the Microsoft Azure cloud platform for business. Starting in March the tour will make stops in Microsoft offices in New York City, Boston, Chicago, Hartford and Washington, D.C., with more cities added shortly.

The bring-your-own-laptop training is hosted by experienced senior cloud technology specialists and designed to give technical decision makers valuable insights into a best practice approach for a transition to increased cloud infrastructure in key IT scenarios. Topics covered include Azure Portal overview, storage, disaster recovery, virtual machine set up and automation, hybrid cloud, Azure Active Directory and identity management, systems management, and other Azure offerings.
