In Episode Two, Mark and Brad will be discussing how hybrid options are changing the way companies approach their IT infrastructure. Last month at TechEd, Microsoft announced a number of new ways that customers can take advantage of hybrid.  During Brad Anderson’s keynote, he talked to customers about how cloud is now integral to every aspect of infrastructure strategy.  In networking, Express Route lets you connect directly from your datacenter to Microsoft Azure, without using the public internet.  Microsoft Azure Site Recovery lets you use the cloud for disaster recovery and back up.  Advances in Microsoft Azure Active Directory are making it easier than ever before to take advantage of hybrid identity.  Brad and Mark will talk about all of these new capabilities, along with how to work through the security issues that can make cloud challenging.

Across the board, new cloud-based capabilities have created new opportunities.  Hear from Brad and Mark how you can start to make the most of these new functionalities – and how other organizations are already experiencing the benefits of hybrid.
