As you may or may not know – I am a Server Hugger – heck I even have a pin to prove it. But – as I like to take on challenges, I thought I would transition my expertise out of on-premise server architecture and infrastructure and walk on the wild side for a while. I’m on a personal mission to get my head around everything there is to know about Windows Azure – from a Server Hugger’s perspective.
Since I’m making this transition and embarking on a fully immersive Azure experience – I thought I’d document it along the way here on the blog. Don’t worry – I won’t be abandoning all things Windows Server / Storage / On-Premises – that will be continuing. I’ll be able to transition my skills to be more “cloudy” based on everything I’ve read and come out for the better on the other side.
I’ll be tagging my posts in a new category “Azure 4 Server Huggers” so you can find them amongst the stuff I have going on here. I will also caveat that each entry will be date specific as technologies evolve extremely fast in the Azure space. I’ll do my best to keep them updated as things change.
Finally – all content in this series will be coming from the perspective of a Server Hugger with 25+ years experience working in on-premises IT environments. There will be minimal “dev” stuff going on – other than how to support and work with them along the way. I’ll be bringing my architect experience along with me.
I hope you enjoy it.
