The Ops Team is a new weekly show where 4 Technical Evangelists specializing in IT Operations get together to give you the deets on their 4 areas of expertise: Microsoft Azure/Cloud, On-premises datacenter technologies, Enterprise Mobility / Windows and DevOps.
This week on The Ops Team, Rick, Matt and Simon make it into the studio, whilst ‘the new guy’, Oguz, gets his timezones mixed up and misses the recording slot! By the power of editing, I catch up with him in his office later, to bring you the latest in the world of DevOps.
In the news, Rick brings you up to speed on some the updates on the Azure Portal, along with new services such as the Azure Backup Server and the Container Services. Oguz gives us more depth on the Azure Container Service, as well as the gossip on Visual Studio Team Services. Matt gives us the lowdown on more innovation in OMS, along with his Hyper-V challenges over the last week, and finally, Simon gives us the news on some new Intune capabilities, along with some Azure AD news.
As is becoming customary on The Ops Team, aside from still having a dysfunctional dongle, this week’s incorrectly configured AV component was Matt’s microphone, only noticed after the shoot! Doh!
