Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Broadcast Today at 11am The Register is broadcasting a free, live, hands-on training session on Windows Azure that you can enjoy right here from the comfort of your own chair.

It will introduce and demonstrate how to get started with Windows Azure, giving an overview of its key features – particularly its recently released Infrastructure-as-a-Service capabilities – and a deep dive into some specifics.

This will include demonstrating how to use the Windows Azure web portal to create virtual machines running both Linux and Windows, and showing you how to get both Microsoft and non-Microsoft applications and servers running in the Windows Azure cloud. As part of this we’ll be looking at how to SSH in and install Apache on a Linux server.

We'll also demonstrate how to configure a virtual network in the cloud and connect it via VPN to your own on-premise network, and how to begin scripting the creation of your cloud computing infrastructure using PowerShell.

If we’ve missed something that you really want to understand, tell the guys during the session and they’ll see if they can help. If there are any other areas of tech that you’d really like us to cover, please let us know in the comments below.
