Hybrid Cloud Computing with Microsoft and Red Hat

November 5, 2015 1 comment

Microsoft and Red Hat announced a partnership that will help customers embrace hybrid cloud computing by providing greater choice and flexibility deploying Red Hat solutions on Microsoft Azure.

redhat-msRed Hat Enterprise Linux will be the preferred option for enterprise Linux workloads on Microsoft Azure.

Microsoft Azure will become a Red Hat Certified Cloud and Service Provider, enabling customers to run their Red Hat Enterprise Linux applications and workloads on Microsoft Azure. Red Hat Cloud Access subscribers will be able to bring their own virtual machine images to run in Microsoft Azure.

Customers will be offered cross-platform, cross-company support spanning the Microsoft and Red Hat offerings in an integrated way, unlike any previous partnership in the public cloud. By co-locating support teams on the same premises, the experience will be simple and seamless, at cloud speed.

Red Hat CloudForms will interoperate with Microsoft Azure and Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager, offering Red Hat CloudForms customers the ability to manage Red Hat Enterprise Linux on both Hyper-V and Microsoft Azure. Support for managing Azure workloads from Red Hat CloudForms is expected to be added in the next few months, extending the existing System Center capabilities for managing Red Hat Enterprise Linux

In addition, Expanding on the preview of .NET on Linux announced by Microsoft in April, developers will have access to .NET technologies across Red Hat offerings, including Red Hat OpenShift and Red Hat Enterprise Linux, jointly backed by Microsoft and Red Hat. Red Hat Enterprise Linux will be the primary development and reference operating system for .NET Core on Linux.

My 2012 year review

Today I got an email from Microsoft congratulating for the MVP renew. That’s already 5 years as Microsoft MVP in Virtual Machine.

Congratulations! We are pleased to present you with the 2013 Microsoft® MVP Award! This award is given to exceptional technical community leaders who actively share their high quality, real world expertise with others. We appreciate your outstanding contributions in Virtual Machine technical communities during the past year.

It is an honour to be part of this unique group. Thank you Ben!

2012 was a busy and challenger year. Full on 🙂

I will start from the 2012 MVP summit, where we had great sessions, and then with the System Center TAP program, which gave me precious access to the SP1 version as well to meetings and docs. I would like to thank the System Center team for the huge opportunity.

In the work side, working as Dell Consultant, I led successful enterprise projects across APJ, spanning from virtualisation, exchange and O365 migrations. All of them with great and positive feedbacks from customers and team mates.

With the lunch of Windows 2012 and System Center, we had a lot to work and learn through the year.

I delivered 3 ILL sessions at Teched Australia in Gold Coast and I delivered 18 sessions in events Australia wide (Sydney, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne and Perth) and for that I would like to thank Veeam for their sponsorship and Dell (specially my manager) for their support. Lots of positive feedbacks.20130102-213926.jpg20130102-214124.jpg

I reviewed the Windows 2012 Hyper-V Cookbook for my friend Leandro Carvalho, which I recommend you to buy at http://www.packtpub.com/windows-server-2012-hypervisor-based-cookbook/book

And to close with a gold key, I manage to finish writing my own book : System Center 20012 SP1 Cookbook : build you own private cloud. The book is now under review and I expect it to be published very soon. So, keep looking in my blog for more news about that.

Tomorrow, I will be back from my short leave. 2013 is promising….

Wishing you all, a happy and prosperous New Year J
