My primary focus is working closely with important Enterprises and ISVs who can have a significant impact on Azure consumption.
This means as I act primarily as a cloud architect, driving the technical agenda to understand a partner's current technology footprint and strategizing the technical path.
White gloving strategically significant partners spans the technology spectrum:
- Docker containers: Includes orchestration (Swarm, Mesos, DC/OS, Kubernetes)
- Data and Analytics: Azure/Elastic Search, Big Data, Machine Learning, Predictive Analytics, Map Reduce, Spark, Storm, R
Internet of Things: Injestion, Raspberry PI, On-Premise Connectivity, Pub/Sub, Queues/Messaging
- Identity and Security: Active Directory, OAUTH, SSO, (Cloud & On-Premises)
- Web and Mobile: Apps published in Windows Store, experience with iOS/Android. Web Services (Java/Jersey, .NET/MVC Web API) and client tooling (jQuery, Bootstrap)
- Database: PostGres, MySQL, SQL Server, Oracle, MongoDB, Cassandra, DocumentDB, Redis
- Networking: Point to Site, Site to Site, Gateways, VNETS, ExpressRoute, Layer 4/7 LBs
- DevOps: Scripting provisioning and management of IaaS, PaaS (Node, Python, REST), CI/CD
MSDN Magazine, and have a published course on O'Reilly Media
This session is about the future of distributed computing and how both enterprises and ISVs are running server-based applications at scale on large clusters. The session is a step-by-step walkthrough that will guide you to building out a web service that runs on Kubernetes, leveraging Python and Flask to implement the web component. It also includes a REDIS caching layer in addition to a MySQL database This presentation will provide both conceptual and concrete hands-on guidance that will help new and existing developers better understand how companies such as Twitter, AirBnB, Netflix run server-based applications at massive scale, leveraging containerization and cluster orchestration technologies. Participants will better understand the trends and future direction of modern distributed computing and how the Azure Container Service provides a vendor neutral and 100% open source solution.
