Yung Chou , Keith Mayer and Greg Shields from Concentrated Technology are back for part 2 of their deploying and managing a service in the cloud series and in today's episode they demo for us how to plan for and deploy RDS using System Center 2012 SP1 Virtual Machine Manager Service Templates. Tune in for this great follow-up episode and preview of an upcoming TechEd 2013 session. For more information of his TechEd North America sessions is available at http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/Speakers/Greg-Shields.
Yung Chou and Keith Mayer welcome Greg Shields from Concentrated Technology to the show as they discuss the differences between virtualization and cloud computing and how the two complement each other as well as how you can take the principles you learned from virtualization and apply them to the cloud. In part 1 of their series, Greg compares the old way of deploying services and shows us how to do it in System Center 2012 Virtual Machine Manager.
The significance of managing a hybrid cloud is due to the potential complexities and complications of operating on resources deployed across various facilities among corporate datacenters and those of 3rd party cloud service providers. Multiple management software, inconsistent UI, heterogeneous operating platforms, non- or poorly-integrated development tools, etc. can and will noticeably increase overhead and reduce productivity.
The idea of copying a VM deployed on premise to Windows Azure is a significant one. Not only porting a VM from one datacenter facility to another can be a technical challenge, but the ability to employ a cloud service provider’s off-premise facilities like Windows Azure as an extension of on-premise deployments introduces new scenarios with exciting business opportunities. The VM portability and copying form an on-premise private cloud and an off-premise facility of a cloud service provider’s approve the technical framework and sets a new standard of enterprise computing. This is a hybrid cloud in making.
