Learn the basics you need to know to get started with Azure cloud including virtual machine creation, introduction to Azure concepts, and more. This pre-recorded webcast is from Microsoft MVP and Green House Data Principal Consultant Aman Sharma.
Green House Data has passed a rigorous independent audit to certify our staff capabilities and corporate processes around Microsoft Azure technologies. Trust your hyperscale cloud project to an MSP who can pivot and scale based on your desired business outcomes, regardless of the workload, application, or offer at hand.
Green House Data’s SpotLITE Discovery Process showed us how we could right-size our data center needs and cut out 30% of the cost by eliminating redundancies. What we thought we needed wasn’t the case and Green House Data gained our trust when they pointed this out instead of turning a blind eye and letting us over build and over spend.Bosselman Enterprises

In InfoSec we continually encounter the unknown, the unfamiliar. Technology marches ever forward, application design matures, bells and whistles chime and toot. This commonly results in the InfoSec professional needing to responsibly secure technology that they don’t holistically understand. Attackers know this, for it is within those gaps in understanding that malicious activity may most readily occur and may do so without notice.
A common InfoSec response to the unfamiliar is to attempt to cover all potential angles of attack, regardless of whether they are pertinent to the technology. This is done in order to ensure that we meet both risk and governance management goals. The result of this approach is rarely better security. Rather, it typically results in unnecessarily complicated security control implementations that are neither functional (e.g., they don’t do what we want/expect them to do) nor operational (e.g., our personnel can’t adequately manage them).
How do we avoid over-complication in our security controls? We focus on the fundamentals: Preparation, Awareness, Response.
Migrating e-mail and productivity apps to the cloud is a no brainer. Continuous updates, access from anywhere, no need to manage the supporting servers and associated hardware…the benefits are clear. As with any IT outsourcing, however, careful planning around security measures is essential. And with your O365 environment exposed to the public internet, security best practices are even more important.
While securing Office 365 is an ongoing effort, there are several top priorities that should be first to be addressed after your migration.
With some organizations looking to move cloud workloads back on-premises to mitigate costs and regain control over their hardware and audit trails, you might be questioning cloud-first and cloud-only initiatives for infrastructure procurement.
After all, for years marketing pushed lower overall costs after migrating to the cloud. So what gives? Why are many cloud workloads ending up more expensive than their on-prem counterparts?
You've probably heard the old joke before that the cloud is “just someone else's data center.” That may have been true a decade ago, but no longer.
Forcing a cloud migration is not the key to savings. You must understand the business value, catalog and think deeply about the existing and desired state of your infrastructure, rearchitect your workloads, and adjust your workflow to this new paradigm. Here are the five key areas you need to plan things out.
