                      Ready to deploy Azure Stack HCI, the new hyperconverged infrastructure operating system delivered as an Azure service? Join this session to learn everything you need to know about how Azure Stack HCI’s hybrid connectivity works. Is it hard to register? (Hint: no.) Is there an agent? (Hint: no.) Does Azure see my VMs and their data? (Hint: no.) Do I need to open my firewall to freely allow Internet traffic? (Hint: no.) All these answers and more.

                      In this session, you’ll learn about the new Azure Kubernetes Service on Azure Stack HCI, how you can use it to run your containerized Windows and Linux apps, how it integrates with Azure, and how it provides the best platform to run additional Azure services, including Arc-enabled Data Services.

                      Any session on Azure Stack HCI is incomplete without talking about the capabilities that Windows Admin Center brings in for Azure Stack HCI. Windows Admin Center is the future of Windows server and Azure Stack HCI management. It is where all our engineering efforts for graphical user interface is going. In this session we will walk through Azure Stack HCI deployment flow in Windows Admin Center and the seamless management capabilities it offers for cluster management, virtual machines lifecycle management and update capabilities. Its deep integration with hardware vendor extensions will provide administrators a smooth and seamless management experience across Azure Stack HCI and physical infrastructure.

                      This session will cover all that is new and being planned for Hyper-V and Virtual Machine management in Windows Admin Center. We will cover new features that are being built for Hyper-V in both Windows Server and Azure Stack HCI. Also, learn more about new features and user experiences that are being built to make VM management easy in Windows Admin Center.

                      Microsoft Azure Stack HCI is a new hyperconverged Operating System providing true hybrid cloud delivery to the edge and the datacenter, while also taking advantage of the Microsoft Azure Cloud. This Session will explain the capabilities of the Azure Stack HCI OS and how Lenovo is co-engineering our ThinkAgile MX with Microsoft to deliver Azure anywhere.

                      Deployment and management of Azure Stack HCI host networking configurations is long, complex, and error prone. This complexity leads to misconfigurations or inconsistencies across the cluster nodes that reduce the reliability of your HCI cluster.
                      Now, there’s a better way

                      Join Microsoft Sr. Program Manager Dan Cuomo as we explore the new host network management service, Network ATC which:
                      – Reduces deployment time and complexity
                      – Reduces configuration errors
                      – Deploys the latest, Microsoft validated, and supported best practices
                      – Eliminates configuration drift

                      Understand how you can use Azure Stack HCI to secure your workloads from external network attacks (north-south) as well internal network attacks (east-west) in the datacenter. Use these capabilities for all your workloads, whether they are attached to traditional VLAN based networks or SDN based networks. Learn how your HCI workloads can leverage additional network services like Quality of Service, load balancing, etc.

                      This session is an introduction to measuring storage performance using DISKSPD, a micro-benchmarking tool. We will discuss at a high level, the different variables and parameters that affect the performance outcome. We will also run through an example of using DISKSPD on a three-node cluster and examine the four sections of the result. We will also examine how we can manipulate the XML output format to produce new and interesting metrics.

                      We have discussed stretching Azure Stack HCI v20H2 for over a year now. Let’s go a little deeper into it and see what is going on under the covers. Gain a bit of insight into what we are doing and how to identify an issue if it arises during setup. How and what happens if disaster strikes and there is a failover between sites.
