Microsoft Hybrid Cloud Unleashed cuts through the hype to explain what exactly hybrid cloud is, present complete ITIL-based implementation strategies, guide you through deploying the brand-new Microsoft Azure Stack, and help you use System Center 2016 to maximize the value of your private cloud investment. Written by an expert team of Microsoft System Center Cloud and Datacenter MVPs and Microsoft Senior Premier Field Engineers, it covers all-new material included in no other System Center Unleashed book, and thoroughly illuminates Microsoft Azure Stack, one of Microsoft's most eagerly awaited cloud technologies. This book is built on real-world scenarios and the authors' extraordinary early adopter, hands-on experience. Leading System Center expert Kerrie Meyler and her colleagues guide you through every step and technique you'll need to build your own secure, high-performance hybrid cloud infrastructure. You'll discover how Azure Stack enables you to run your datacenters with the same scalability, redundancy, and reliability for computer, network, and storage as Microsoft's own Azure datacenters; how to integrate Azure infrastructure and platform services for use in your internal operations; how to manage virtualized instances of Microsoft software; and how to manage key dependencies with other products and technologies that Microsoft's hybrid cloud solution depends upon.
