Ignite 2016 Session: Learn about Microsoft IoT Vision

The Learn about Microsoft IoT Vision session from the Microsoft Ignite 2016 conference gives some really good overview of what Microsoft’s vision of the Internet of Things (IoT) is, as well as answering some questions about “What?” and “Why?” around IoT.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is here today in the devices, sensors, cloud services, and data your business uses. Microsoft delivers a flexible cloud-based approach that enables enterprises to capitalize on IoT by gathering, storing, and processing data centrally. When centrally connecting distributed LoB assets, the edge of an enterprise’s infrastructure can be redefined, and the breadth of the Microsoft data platform can be harnessed. Learn about Microsoft’s position on IoT, and the technology and services being delivered from Microsoft to help you create the Internet of Your Things.

Using Azure Portal with HoloLens

The Microsoft HoloLens is a really exciting new technology allowing holograms to be pinned to any physical space within your home or office. Due to the HoloLens extremely limited availability there aren’t very many apps available for it. Since the Microsoft Azure Portal is a web application it is automatically enabled to work on the HoloLens using the Microsoft Edge web browser.

The Microsoft Edge web browser on the Microsoft HoloLens is the exact same Edge browser available on desktop Windows 10 PCs. As a result, all the same compatibility for the web is available on the HoloLens straight out of the box. Any website or web application can be used on the HoloLens through the Edge browser; assuming there are no issues with web compatibility in within this web browser. Read More

Azure Cloud Hardware is Made of Containers

At the heart of the Microsoft Cloud are servers, networks, Internet connections, and much, much more! These data centers share a lot of qualities with traditional Enterprise data centers; such as fire suppression, humidity control, temperature control and more.

One major difference between the traditional Enterprise data center is that Microsoft uses Containers (called ITPACs) to build out it’s data centers. These Containers are Shipping Containers fitted with all the necessary climate control, networking, server racks and other hardware necessary to be a “mini” data center all in one. Then many of these are connected together within on of Microsoft’s Azure data centers to build out the full data centers. Read More
