Andrew moves — to the Cloud!

Sat, 12 Mar 2011 20:56:00 +0000

I’ve taken on a new role inside the Microsoft Technology Centers to address the increasing demand of cloud services we’re seeing across the world wide MTCs.  In my new role as Director of Cloud and Data Center Evangelism, I am going to being focusing on transition of the traditional and virtualized datacenter to cloud (both...

MTCs partnering with Microsoft Global Foundation Services

Sun, 31 Oct 2010 08:32:05 +0000

Since the massive Chicago datacenter came online, its has gotten a LOT of attention due to its being built to use of shipping containers filled with servers rather than traditional racks, and the lower PUE it yields.  The Chicago MTC has partnered up with GFS (the team that runs those datacenters) to do briefings for...

Monitoring Comes First!

Mon, 12 Apr 2010 10:15:00 +0000

I’ve been having lots of discussions at MTC with customers wanting to increase the quality of infrastructure services delivery (using MOF/ITIL speak), and using System Center as the “technology” part of that people-process-technology triad.  Many times they ask my opinion of where they should start first – Operations Manager?  Configuration Manager?  Just focus on managing...

Creating a SCOM Management Pack for your Application

Tue, 30 Mar 2010 21:04:00 +0000

As an infrastructure architect, I’ve been talking to IT infra guys about the benefits of Operations Manager for performance and event-monitoring.  For those that know Operations Manager, you know the knowledge about the events, health, and performance is stored in a Management Packs (MPs).  The discussion usually (and appropriately) ended with two fundamental conclusions:  1)...

Quick Tip: Using HP ProCurve Manager

Thu, 02 Jul 2009 10:29:00 +0000

So, normally i reserve posting quick tips on technical details here.  But, i spent hours troubleshooting an issue and wanted to post it SOMEWHERE so the search engines pick this up.  And it's less than well documented.  I'm hoping by posting here someone doesn't spend the time I did trying to fix this. If you...

VDI and streaming the OS

Thu, 02 Jul 2009 10:22:00 +0000

I'm continuing to get lots of interest in application virtualization and in particular VDI - hosting the entire desktop and a user simply "remotes" to their desktop in the cloud / datacenter.  Spent some time with Citrix, who is a close partner of Microsoft and the MTCs.   We deployed an interesting solution that makes me...

Mon, 23 Mar 2009 08:59:00 +0000

I'll be speaking today at the Technical Experts Conference (TEC), which is Quest's technical conference where they have topics about Exchange and Active Directory.  I'll be presenting on the work we've done at the Microsoft Technology Center Chicago about making our new datacenter virtualized, and the value of using VLAN Tagging at the VM /switch...

Little known but oh so enabling…

Mon, 01 Dec 2008 16:16:00 +0000

Windows Server 2008 added two new features that enable some very cool remote-use scenarios, that really enable some new ways for using and publishing applications:  RemoteApp(tm) and Terminal Server Gateway. RemoteApp allows you to publish out an application, as if it was installed locally on the users workstation but actually runs in the memory space...

Using VLAN tagging with Hyper-V – reduces management!

Mon, 01 Dec 2008 16:13:00 +0000

I’ve been spending majority of my free time rebuilding our core infrastructure services in our data center at the Microsoft Technology Center in Chicago.  We’re moving offices in December 2008, so perfect time to do this.  I’ve been wanting to look into VLAN identification feature of Hyper-V, and see how this can really benefit us...
