The Ops Team #021 – “Camara Catastrophe”

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, Rick’s gone again, and there’s no sign of Simon, so Matt and the ‘DevOpsBoyz’ get together to bring you the news, unfortunately, the team suffer from a abnormal number of camera issues, from broken dongles, to camera’s getting too hot, temperamental HDMI connectivity and more. Just about everything that could go wrong with the cameras, did go wrong, but stick with us through to the end! In the news, David shares some new DevOps Dimension videos, along with his views on Bi-Modal IT and new Visual Studio capabilities. Oguz talks Docker and Containers, along with some cool new support for frameworks on Nano Server. Matt shares some cool resources for learning about ARM, Automation DSC and the new Azure Test Drives, and for on-prem, brings you up to speed with new capabilities in Windows Server and the Server Management Tools.

This week on The Ops Team, the security camera is fixed (thanks to a new (old) video camera and some velcro cable ties), but unfortunately, Rick can’t make it into the studio to celebrate that fact, so it’s left to Matt, Oguz and Simon to give you the news. Don’t worry Rick-fans, we still get his news nuggets, by the power of editing!

In this week’s news…Oguz brings us up to speed with the latest developments with Application Insights. Matt gives you everything you need to know to get started with the Azure Stack, now that it’s finally with us (at least in technical preview form!) along with some cool new info on on-boarding Linux workloads into OMS. Rick shares some cool announcements around Azure Backup, Azure Site Recovery and PowerShell, along with an insightful blog post from Mark Russinovich. Finally, Simon gives us the latest news on Azure RMS, and Configuration Manager!  Awesome stuff!

In the news, Rick delivered his own version of Groundhog Day, by giving us pretty much the same news as last week, only in a slightly different order.  Oguz reveals a new Linux on Azure certification along with some ‘insights’ into Application Insights. Matt brings up the awkward discussion of Windows Server licensing and the changes coming with Windows Server 2016, and finally, Simon updates the group on the release of System Center Configuration Manager, how it’s been SaaSify’d and what’s new in Azure RemoteApp!
