Azure Cloud Architect Training – The Sequel


Haven’t written much in the last few weeks due to the time of year – everyone is on vacation here in Western Canada (everyone it seems apart from me!).  I was also wrapping up a few odds and ends and doing alot of presales which is too boring to write about.

Today though  I finally kicked off a large 50,000+ user Exchange 2007 > Exchange 2013 on premise upgrade for a large Enterprise customer as technical lead.  I imagine this project will give me lots to discuss in the coming weeks and months. Working with legacy Exchange 2007 is like going back to the bad old days of messaging (imagine working with clustering instead of DAGs)!

As always the art of successfully delivering large scale migrations is in Planning and Communication.  The techy stuff is the easy part…

Meanwhile I am off to Seattle next week for more Azure Architect training, which is actually a sequel to the event I attended back in May.  It was so successful and the feedback was so positive that they have decided to deliver more of an immersive  “hands-on” technical lab format this time.  So can’t wait for that to start and I’ll post some stuff about it once it’s underway.  I’ll need to write a couple of certs soon with the accumulated knowledge.  Initial agenda items are below.  Particularly interested in the “vending machines” topic – how to hack a vending machine in Azure?  Who knows 🙂
