...building hybrid clouds that can support any device from anywhere
Once again, I am excited to announce the release of even more Example Runbooks –
This time for…Windows Azure!
Now… Let’s be clear, there is no way I can compete with this AWESOME post – that basically went viral yesterday – but, I will try to provide something that is at least 3 parts value, 2 parts innovation and 1 part entertainment. :)
Useful Video Timestamps:
00:00:00 - Intro Slides 00:00:58 - Demo of Windows Azure VM Deployment Creation via System Center 2012 SP1 Orchestrator 00:07:21 - Demo of Windows Azure VM Deployment Deprovision via System Center 2012 SP1 Orchestrator 00:11:48 - Demo of OnPrem VM Move to Windows Azure via System Center 2012 SP1 Orchestrator and PS 00:16:29 - Summary
NOTE: The PowerShell Script mentioned in the video exists within the Release Notes / Pre-Requisites documentation included in the download. Also, you will see evidence of a “184.108.40.206 Azure - Create VM Deployment | Verify or Update HOSTS file for Azure Targets” Runbook within the video, yet it is never mentioned (nor is it available in the examples provided) – this was a workaround Runbook required for our SCDEMO Environment given some of our internal network restrictions. Oh, and finally – you will hear reference to my “HVR Runbooks” or “HVR Presentation” – if interested, check it out here: Automation–Orchestrating Hyper-V Replica with System Center for Planned Failover
TechNet Gallery, of course!

NOTE: These Runbooks were created and exported based on the following version of the Microsoft System Center 2012 Orchestrator - Windows Azure Integration Pack: 7.1.3029.0. If this is not the version you see in the Deployment Manager, you will need to download the Integration Pack and redeploy for full Runbook activity functionality.
