Designing Azure Compute and Storage to optimise for cost and performance
Take a deep dive with us as we explore designing Azure compute and storage for advanced performance. In this session we will look in to the scaling and performance targets for Azure compute and storage, and how to meet specific IOPS performance levels without blowing out costs. https://channel9.msdn.com/events/Ignite/New-Zealand-2016/M370
Implementing Azure Site Recovery for on premises to Azure DR
Azure Site Recovery (ASR) provides very cost effective Disaster Recovery as a Service. When it comes to designing and implementing ASR there are a number of different steps and components that should be taken in to consideration. In this session we will take you through planning for ASR, the information you should collect and the tools you can use to gather it. We will then step through implementing ASR to protect workloads to Azure and configuration of the failover process. https://channel9.msdn.com/events/Ignite/New-Zealand-2016/M322

Microsoft Wellington Infrastructure and Azure User Group – Optimizing for cost and performance with Azure – July 2016
I help run the Microsoft Wellington Infrastructure and Cloud User Group and every now and then I get the opportunity to step away from my MC duties and present a session to the group. This session is based on the presentation I gave at CodeCamp but with more of a focus on the approach to optimizing for cost and performance in Azure rather than just focussing on compute and storage.

Windows 10 for Businesses of any Size – March 2016
In March Microsoft flew me up to Auckland to present the opening session in a month long series of Windows 10 webinars broadcast live on the internet for the Asia Pacific region.

TechED New Zealand 2014 – Azure Active Directory – Identity Management in the Cloud (PCIT208)
In the 13+ years since the original Active Directory product launched with Windows 2000, it has grown to become the default identity management and access-control solution for over 95% of organizations around the world. As companies rely more and more on SaaS-based applications, as the range of cloud-connected devices being used to access corporate assets continue to grow, and as more hosted and public cloud capacity is used, companies must expand their identity solutions to the cloud. With this in mind, Microsoft set out to build a solution.
