Azure IaaS, Hyperconvergence, and IPv6

December is one of our traditional "Short But Cool" meetings. 

This meeting features, in order of talk title:

Azure IaaS with Jennelle Crothers: Take a quick look to Windows Azure Infrastructure as a Service - what's it look like, how to get around, what are some quick and dirty use cases for servers you can spin up in minutes in the cloud.  

Jennelle Crothers is a Microsoft Technical Evangelist who likes computer networking & server administration. Spent 15 years as a jack of all trades w/ Windows domains, Exchange, and other IT systems. Now supports platform awareness for Windows Server & related technologies.

Hyperconvergence Platforms with Jason Collier: A look at hyperconvergence, demonstrating how storage, servers, and virtualization can be integrated in a single highly scalable platform. Case studies and a demo will be included. 

As a founder and CTO, Jason Collier is responsible for the technology vision of the company. Previously, Jason was VP of technical operations at Corvigo where he oversaw sales engineering, technical support, internal IT and datacenter operations. Prior to Corvigo, Jason was VP of information technology and infrastructure at Radiate. There he architected and oversaw the deployment of the entire Radiate ad-network infrastructure, scaling it from under one million transactions per month when he started to more than 300 million at its peak.


Ways To Set Up IPv6 with Ed Horley: A high level overview of your options to get IPv6 setup in your home, lab or company and the resources you need to make that happen.
