A few days ago a few people released a FREE ebook, titled ‘Inside Microsoft Azure IaaS’. In total four people have written this book. Two of them I know quite well and respect them highly for their knowledge, experience and insights.
These two are Pete Zerger and Anders Bengtsson. The other two (Ryan Irujo and Janaka Rangama) I don’t know but simply because Pete and Anders work with them, they have to be good as well .
Even though Azure isn’t just IaaS, it’s an aspect which doesn’t get that much attention. Many companies use it on a daily basis. This ebook covers IaaS in great detail, with many examples and scripts. As the authors themselves describe the book: ‘…a hands-on guide to utilizing Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) resources in Azure, with a primary focus on Azure Virtual Machines. Additional content covered in the book includes Azure PowerShell, Azure Virtual Networking, Azure Storage, Connecting Azure to your Datacenter, Migration, and Backup & Disaster Recovery…’
Therefore I highly advice this book for any IT Pro working with Azure or about to work with Azure IaaS. And again, this ebook is available for FREE from TechNet Gallery.
