I’m starting a new series on 4Sysops on what’s new in Windows Server “10” Tech Preview – this first one covers the enhancements in Hyper-V. I look at new configuration file formats, cluster upgrading through mixing versions of Hyper-V, new Production Checkpoints, Secure Boot for Linux and more. Read it here.

Enjoy and thanks for reading!

Continuing my series on Azure for 4Sysops, my next piece is now live. This one covers Azure Automation (AA? Alcoholics Anonymous?), a service to run PowerShell workflows in Azure to automate common tasks. Read it here.

Enjoy and thanks for reading!

Rounding off the Azure networking pieces is a post on Site to Site VPN networking between on-premises and Azure, along with a look at ExpressRoute on 4sysops. Read it here

I’m starting a new series of “how-to” (as well as “why”) articles on Microsoft Azure for 4Sysops. The first part that covers creating virtual networks, both using the web GUI console and using PowerShell, as well as assigning fixed IP addresses to IaaS VMs is now live – read it here.

Enjoy! And thanks for reading.

A long time ago I reviewed a tool called PDT, PowerShell Deployment Toolkit for 4Sysops, (it’s a funny name since it doesn’t actually deploy PowerShell, it deploys System Center 2012 / 2012 R2). It’s now been furnished with a GUI by a couple of people in Germany and it works quite well – read all about it here.

Enjoy! And thanks for reading.

A couple of months ago I looked at System Center 2012 R2 Operations Manager, Configuration Manager and Virtual Machine Manager for 4Sysops. Those three received quite a few improvements in the R2 release. This time I have a look at the other three parts of System Center and find that, apart from DPM, there was very few improvements in the products. Read it here.

Enjoy! And thanks for reading.
