20 Key Scenarios with Windows Azure Infrastructure Services – The Complete Series

Get started with your Cloud Trial hereAs many of you may already know, this month my Microsoft US DPE Central Region teammates (Matt Hester, Brian Lewis, and Keith Mayer) and I are blogging about “20 Key Scenarios with Windows Azure Infrastructure Services”.  Throughout this month I’ll be adding links, making any updates or changes.  So keep checking back for more, or keep watching my blog.  As before, I plan on adding my own blog post every day, either introducing the day’s topic, or providing the article myself.

UPDATE: It’s done!  Below is the complete list of series articles!


  • You might want to get your FREE TRIAL of Windows Azure, if you haven’t already,
  • You should get your System Center 2012 SP1 trial (to start fully managing all of your clouds), and
  • You should also LIKE my “Kevin Remde is Full of I.T.” page on Facebook, and
  • FOLLOW me on Twitter; whatever is your preferred method of keeping in touch with what I and my teammates are doing, or on general Microsoft news as it pertains to all things I.T.

That said, here are the articles!
