In part 2 of this series, we will start dive into DC/OS 1.9 installation on top of vSphere. Mesosphere offers few ways to deploy a fully working cluster and since I wanted to see how everything is really connected, I have chosen the advanced installation method. We will start with some Linux related adjustments and the docker engine deployment.
These days, I try to be involved in any Containers, DevOps, Automation, etc. related discussion. Part of my role is to consult my customers around how to architect their containers platform and orchestration tools in Azure. But what happens when you have a chance to do something cool like architecting a solution which involves Mesosphere DC/OS, Azure Container Service, Azure Container Registry, Docker and VMware vSphere?! Let’s find out…
A new Azure Marketplace feature has come to life called “Test Drives”. This will give you the opportunity to deploy and play with some applications on Azure for a limited amount of time (2hr) without the need to open an Azure subscription or give your credit card details.
About a week ago Veeam introduced “Direct Restore to Azure”. In the last couple of days, I’ve been playing with it and I have to say I was surprised to see how easy it is to take a backup file and make an Azure VM out of it.
Lately I’ve been playing around with Azure DevTest labs. This is a great way for provisioning rapidly deployed policy-driven environments in Azure for developers, testing, QA, DevOps and other teams in the organization.
In the previous posts I showed you how to deploy Azure Active Directory Services as a Service. Rather you did this just for fun or for a PoC, there is always the possibility to undo and delete the domain.
Now that we have set the stage, let’s take an Azure virtual machine and make it a member in our new “onmicrosoft.com” domain.
I have to say, since joining Microsoft I talk “as-a-Service” almost every day. Among all of the cool PaaS capabilities you will find Azure Active Directory (AAD). Before diving in, let’s all be on the same page here – I’m not going to deploy any domain controller or run DCPROMO on a VM god forbidden, it is all about the PaaS ladies and gents 🙂 .
