Session Description

Migrating thousands of virtual machines to the cloud can be a complex, time-consuming task. This process is even more complex when an organization is supporting globally distributed teams that create thousands of new virtual machines each month, each using different configurations to support customer support, training, sales and development. This session will explore some of the strategies and techniques which were recently used to migrate such an environment to Azure. The sesion will examine some proven patterns on Azure which can improve dynamically provisioning virtual machines and examine how DevOps practices can be used to facilitate large migrations.

In this case study session, attendees will learn:

  • DevOps patterns that can be used to create scalable migrations

  • Solutions for minimizing virtual machine rollout times

  • The most important cultural changes for supporting these endeavors
