Announcement: SCU Is Now Available on Channel 9

System Center Universe Europe Sessions

4746638 - wideI am excited to announce the partnership between SCU and Channel 9, allowing for all SCU content and the live SCU US event feed available via Channel 9.

SCU 2015 US will take place 2/4/15 in Dallas, TX. This year’s event includes two live tracks, one of which will be featured on Channel 9 live, the day of the event and the other streamed live through www.systemcenteruniverse.com. This partnership will allow for the content at SCU to be even more accessible to the community. Additionally, we are pleased to announce that ALL of the content from SCU 2014 Europe will be hosted on Channel 9 after their very successful event this past September. SCU Europe provided more than 60 sessions with over 40 top speakers from around the world. The sharing of this content with Channel 9 is an exciting update to the System Center and Azure communities as this content had previously not been made publicly available.

We see the integration of SCU content into Channel 9 as a way to expand availability of this content to even more of the System Center and Azure community around the worldCameron Fuller (SCU event originator)

Linkerd provides many of the tools you need to tame the chaos of operating microservices in a cloud native world. Because Linkerd is a transparent proxy that runs alongside your application, there are no code changes required. It even comes with Prometheus to store the metrics for you and pre-built Grafana dashboards to show exactly what is important for your services - success rate, latency, and throughput.

As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the benefits of the cloud without losing performance as containers become the new paradigm.
