The SysAdmin Guide to Azure Infrastructure as a Service
If you're used to on-premises infrastructures, cloud platforms can seem daunting. But it doesn't need to be. This eBook written by the veteran IT consultant and trainer Paul Schnackenburg, covers all aspects of setting up and maintaining a high-performing Azure IaaS environment, including: • VM sizing and deployment • Migration • Storage and networking • Security and identity • Infrastructure as code and more!

The cloud computing era is well and truly upon us, and knowing how to take advantage of the benefits of this computing paradigm while maintaining security, manageability, and cost control are vital skills for any IT professional in 2020 and beyond. And its importance is only getting greater.

In this eBook, we’re going to focus on Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) on Microsoft’s Azure platform - learning how to create VMs, size them correctly, manage storage, networking, and security, along with backup best practices. You’ll also learn how to operate groups of VMs, deploy resources based on templates, managing security and automate your infrastructure. If you currently have VMs in your own datacenter and are looking to migrate to Azure, we’ll also teach you that.

If you’re new to the cloud (or have experience with AWS/GCP but not Azure), this book will cover the basics as well as more advanced skills. Given how fast things change in the cloud, we’ll cover the why (as well as the how) so that as features and interfaces are updated, you’ll have the theoretical knowledge to effectively adapt and know how to proceed.

You’ll benefit most from this book if you actively follow along with the tutorials. We will be going through terms and definitions as we go – learning by doing has always been my preferred way of education. If you don’t have access to an Azure subscription, you can sign up for a free trial with Microsoft. This will give you 30 days 6 to use $200 USD worth of Azure resources, along with 12 months of free resources. Note that most of these “12 months” services aren’t related to IaaS VMs (apart from a few SSD based virtual disks and a small VM that you can run for 750 hours a month) so be sure to get everything covered on the IaaS side before your trial expires. There are also another 25 services that have free tiers “forever”.

Now you know what’s in store, let’s get started!

Managing Remote Access in the Age of the Digital Workforce
Following The Remote Work Revolution, How Do You Manage Remote Access Long-Term? Find out in the eBook. The global pandemic forced companies to pivot to a work from home approach – but remote work (or virtual work) has been gaining momentum since the early days of technology. Many companies are now calling remote work the “new normal”, and experts say that this shift in thinking won’t change any time soon.

How secure, compliant SaaS-based environments enable and sustain virtual work.

Secure, compliant SaaS-based work environments are specifically built to facilitate fast provisioning of globally distributed teams and a virtual workforce anywhere on the planet with an internet connection. The cloud elasticity of the Tehama platform, for example, means it can scale up or down quickly as needed, with virtual offices, rooms and desktops provisioned in minutes – a far cry from most virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) or desktop-as-a-service (DaaS) offerings, which usually require weeks or even months to set up and configure.

Tehama’s secure perimeters, automated encryption, continuous malware protection, and network segregation maintains the highest level of security while running in any web browser on any device. It’s also SOC 2 Type II certified, ensuring airtight compliance through built-in controls, forensic auditing and activity monitoring.

Put simply, SaaS-based virtual work environments are the fastest, easiest, most secure way to deploy – and sustain – a virtual workforce.   

The data is telling us that remote work through distributed, global teams isn’t just a fad. It’s here to stay and will likely become more popular than ever in 2020 and beyond. The only question now is which organizations are best positioned to take advantage.

Managing Remote Access in the Age of the Digital Workforce explores the history of remote work, and later looks at how to make sure that your corporate assets are secure while employees, contractors and third-party service providers  are working from any location.
