    EP28 - Azure Stack Family Pt 4

    The Scottish Azure Stack team is back in action.  It was good to have Kenny and Darren on the podcast again, we always have great discussions.  In this episode we spend a bit of time catching up when we realise we haven't done an episode for quite some time.  We talk about the work/life/lockdown balance and how we are getting on and then we dive in to the Azure Stack family and talk about some Microsoft Ignite updates.  Azure Stack HCI is the current star of the show, we're all extremely busy working with customers and partners who want to adopt Azure Stack HCI as their on premises consistent Azure Hybrid solution.

    EP26 - Mike Lamia - Career Development & Technical Marketing

    Welcome to Episode 25 and the last episode of 2020 - can you believe it? 

    In this episode I am joined by an awesome friend and colleague Mike Lamia. Mike shares with us his career story. A born technologist there is nothing else that Mike could imagine himself doing. Although one role and terribly managed server room almost made him consider it. But VMware and virtualisation saved the day and he stayed with the industry.

    Mike now works in Technical Marketing at Dell Technologies focused on Azure Stack products and loves to 'make tech real' for our customers. We also discuss setting some goals for 2021 and I get a special commitment from Mike! Have you thought about your 2021 goals yet? Let us know in the comments below!

    EP23 - Azure Stack Family Pt 3

    This is the third episode of a mini Azure Stack Family series with Darren Small and Kenny Lowe.  We get stuck in to the Azure Stack portfolio and hybrid cloud and answer your questions.    

    In this episode we discuss the imminent launch of Azure Stack HCI.  We talk about use cases with a focus on AKS.  Kenny delivers a great explanation of how to differentiate between Azure Stack Hub and Azure Stack HCI.  We clarify licensing and commercials for Azure Stack HCI as well as clarify what disconnected and connected mean when applying those terms to Azure Stack HCI and Hub.  Kenny shares his set up for testing Hub with ASDK and HCI with WS labs. Azure Arc of course takes up some of our discussion and we talk about the Microsoft & Dell Technologies Centre of Excellence in partnership with Bordonaro IT in Germany.
