...building hybrid clouds that can support any device from anywhere
Hello Readers and Viewers!
Wow, it has been a while since I posted, in fact it was back in December with the completion of my Windows Azure & PowerShell Blog Series.
The good news is - in that time, I have been hard at work, developing new and exciting PowerShell for some of the new and exciting technologies that you likely already have had the chance to dive into: Windows Azure Pack (WAP) with VM Role Gallery Resources.
Well, those were directly related to the initial learning around Tenant Provisioning my team gathered during an internal Proof of Concept. Back then, it was all about the “VMM Service Template”, and while some of that existing knowledge will work in this new world of WAP, the focus now is on VM Role Gallery Resources as the delivery mechanism for application workloads.
At the very least, all the existing knowledge around automated deployment of the Tenant Virtual Network (Isolated Software Defined Network (SDN)). As well as, some previously undisclosed techniques for automatically initiating the deployments - all of which still holds true, regardless of delivery mechanism.
The new automation involved in the deployment of VM Role Gallery Resources, as both a Service Admin (via VMM “OnBehalfOf” PS Commands) and a Tenant Admin (via the Service Management WS API).
The download (Windows Azure Pack Tenant Provisioning Automation Toolkit.zip) includes (14) files.
For more information please refer to Part 4 of this blog series (near the bottom of the post), or in the description of the TechNet Gallery Contribution itself.
