If you've been working with Azure Infrastructure Services for a while, you're probably familiar with virtual machines running inside the boundary of a Cloud Service. You're also familiar with Affinity Groups and the imperative Service Management API whether you call it directly, or whether you use the Classic Azure Management Portal or PowerShell. However, there's a new Azure in town, with a new Management Portal, and with different management APIs powered by Azure Resource Manager. There's also a new set of Infrastructure Services known as IaaS v2.

Come to this session to learn what's new in Azure IaaS v2, from the new service architecture and new resources and capabilities to the Azure Resource Manager. You'll also learn how to migrate your existing IaaS v1 resources and some of the transition challenges you may encounter.

You will learn:

  • About Azure v2
  • How to work with Azure v2 using ARM
  • Migration strategies and transition challenges
