Migrating VMs to Azure DevTest Labs

Migrating VMs to Azure DevTest Labs

No one wants to spend more money than they need to and that is especially true if you are running your solutions in the cloud.

Distributed Computing and Architecture Patterns

So lately I’ve been doing a lot of work on distributed programming, and specifically looking less at projects that are living on-premise, but need to be moved to cloud, and more with projects that are born in the cloud and how to optimize.  What I’m talking about here is applicable for the “lift-and-shift” type of project.
