The Ops Team #26 – “Back in the Room!”

The Ops Team is a (sometimes) weekly show where (occasionally) 4 Technical Evangelists specializing in IT Operations get together to give you the deets on their 4 areas of expertise: Microsoft Azure/Cloud, On-premises datacenter technologies, Enterprise Mobility / Windows and DevOps.

This week on The Ops Team, the team are in a new studio! After an extended time off, covering vacations, conferences and studio moves (and then even longer for Matt to edit the recording!) the team return to bring you up to speed with the latest (well, it was new at the time!) news and current info you need to know if you’re in IT. David opens up with some news on enhancements to VSTS and some cool insight (sorry!) into telemetry around HockeyApp. Matt follows up with some Azure news, including some great Gartner recognition, migration tool news, and some powerful new GPU-VMs in Azure. Oguz steals the show with amazing PowerShell on Linux announcements and Matt brings us home with some on-prem updates for Azure Stack and Windows Server.

We’re a good-natured bunch so we still allowed him to participate! In the news, Oguz kicks us off with some key advances from Docker, along with some great Hands-on-Lab learning resources. Simon gives us the gossip around Intune support for the latest version of IOS, along with some great references for Windows management. Matt showcases a cool update for the OMS mobile app, along with sharing some other cool resources from the community and Microsoft.
