Azure IaaS - the IT-Pro approach to Hybrid Cloud

 
English Intermediate Compute

Recently I was engaged in delivering Azure IaaS one-day Bootcamps for a Microsoft on-Premises focused IT-Pro audience and oh boy I learned a lot. In this session, I would like to share my struggles, my learnings and what's worked for me to build a true Hybrid Cloud with Public Azure and Hyper-V VMs on-Premises.
