Microsoft System Center: Deploying Hyper-V with Software-Defined Storage & Networking
When you’re looking at testing a new IT solution - such as implementing a software-defined datacenter that includes virtualization, networking, and storage - the best starting point is always to get advice from someone who has already done it.

We’ve gone through the work of deploying Windows Server, Microsoft System Center, and the innovations that Microsoft Azure has brought to these technologies. Our goal is to give you the step-by-step benefit of our proof-of-concept implementation to save you time and effort. And we want to show you how you can take advantage of innovation across the datacenter and the cloud to simplify your infrastructure and speed delivery of services to the business.

Azure Automation: Microsoft Azure Essentials
This ebook introduces a fairly new feature of Microsoft Azure called Azure Automation.

These runbooks are stored in and backed up by Azure. By automating runbooks, you can greatly minimize the occurrence of errors when carrying out repeated tasks and process automation.
