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

Microsoft recently revealed a service called Azure Bastion that allows customers a more secure way to connect and access virtual machines (VMs). It uses Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) and Secure Shell (SSH) network protocol alongside Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption.
Bastion connects VMs, your local computers, and cloud resources without exposing them to public network connections. As a Platform as a Service, it simplifies the process of setting up and administrating bastion hosts or jumpboxes in your cloud environment.
But what are bastion hosts or jumpboxes? And why would you use them, or a service like Azure Bastion?
We recently launched a survey of IT professionals to see how multi-cloud adoption is progressing among members of the community. While we packaged it as a fun quiz to “Learn Your Cloud Animal” based on what results were chosen, the results offer some great insight.
Most crucially, we discovered that while 72% of respondents were currently using multiple cloud providers, a whopping 56% of them had no multi-cloud strategy or long-term roadmap.
We dug in deeper to learn how these IT pros were using external service providers to manage multi-cloud workloads, whether they were using multi-cloud management tools, if containers entered the equation, and much more.
Read on to learn the rest, including the top challenges faced in a multi-cloud environment.
You would be a woefully uninformed and unprepared as an IT admin if you didn’t know that two major Microsoft products, the 2008 versions of SQL Server and Windows Server, are each about to reach their end of support. That means it’s time to upgrade or migrate lest you fall victim to inevitable security vulnerabilities.
One big question when facing a major software upgrade such as this is whether to remain in place, so to speak, and update to the latest version from your current deployment scenario on premise or in a hosted environment, or to move to a cloud-based server – namely Azure, since that offers you tight integration and lower costs with Microsoft products such as these.
SQL Server end of support is imminent, coming up on July 9, 2019. Windows Server has a few months to go, ending support on January 14, 2020.
