In this demo-heavy interview on the new Microsoft Rights Management services, see how you are able to automatically protect / encrypt documents with IRM utilizing the identities that you have synced or created in Windows Azure AD. The coolest thing IMO is that we now have client cross-platform support (iOS, Android, Mac OS) for encryption/decryption and you can still easily protect content for organizations outside of your own company who don’t already have Windows Azure AD.
Learn about the new RDP client for iOS and Android in my interview with Sr Product Manager Adam Carter. He demos the remote desktop client on an iPad and we also chat about some of the new enhancements to VDI in Windows Server 2012 R2. This is a little out of the norm for me considering I usually focus on something related to Windows Azure, but definitely wanted to cover this important announcement.
Get the inside scoop around Windows Azure Multi-factor authentication with this interview. We ask some common questions and link off to some great technical demos. What questions do you have around Windows Azure MFA?
Learn about the new way to automatically scale your virtual machines in Windows Azure in my demo-heavy interview with the program manager who owns those features in this Edge Show episoe. We dive into autoscale of the cloud services and websites also.
Learn from engineering about seamless SSO integration with apps like BOX, SkyDrive, ADP, and Office365 to Windows Azure AD in my interview with Mark Wahl. We spend most of the time in demos showing you the client experience, how to configure integration with an application, and security analysis functionality enabled in the preview.
The program manager for Windows Azure networking gives some insight into what’s coming as well as dives deep into the new point-to-site networking via demo. Yu-Shun answers commonly asked questions I get about Windows Azure networking such as Does Windows Azure support routing protocols? Vnets connecting to other Vnets?
I’ve heard people ask – Can I harness the power of Windows Azure in my own datacenter on-premises? If you take a look at the picture below, tell me on a first glance – does it look like Windows Azure?
In fact, this is Windows Azure Services for Windows Server (which by the way in-it-of-itself is free) and when used can have “Azure-like” capabilities in being able to provide a set of resources to someone. These capabilities are especially useful if you are a service provider or hoster. You can learn more about the product with demos by watching the interview I did with Mark Umeno at MMS 2013.
