    EP32 - Dell Tech GEOS - Ignite Announcements

    Welcome back to Lisa at the Edge.  After a break I am easing back in slowly to the world of social media and kicking off the podcast again. I'm definitely a little rusty and I think it shows in this episode but hopefully I'll be back to myself after a few more episodes.     

    In this episode I am joined by some of my team mates to discuss the Azure Stack HCI and Azure Arc announcements from Microsoft Ignite November 2021.  I was in Paris during Ignite so missed the live content but I have been catching up via the blogs and video content and my team mates were on hand to bring me up to speed.
