About Show #402
Thinking about getting into Azure? Now is a great time! Rick Claus talks to Richard about how Azure continues to evolve making more entry points at lower levels of friction for a larger variety of customers. The conversation ranges over using Azure for disaster recovery, for application elasticity, building hybrid solutions with parts in the cloud and parts on-premise, and more! Want a VM in the cloud? Azure can do that too. Rick runs down the gamut of options for the IT Pro to get Azure into your organization one step at a time.
Rick Claus engages in person and online with the worldwide Ops community on behalf of Microsoft. As a Cloud Advocate on the Azure engineering team, Rick's role is to connect with technical communities in order capture feedback on how to make things better and to share his knowledge about the ecosystem.
Technical areas of expertise from his 20+ years of experience in the IT Industry include: Core Azure infrastructure services, Windows Server, systems management and all things "cloud" ;-)
Unofficially, Rick is focused on spreading his enthusiasm, passion and excitement on all things technical to anyone who has the time for a coffee (or pint) and a chat (in English or français - naturellement).
