Azure StorSimple is Microsoft’s hybrid cloud storage solution that leverages the cloud to solve one of the most pressing challenges of the enterprise customer: managing rapid data growth. In the last 12 months, rapid innovations like StorSimple Virtual Array (a software version of StorSimple solution) and Local Volumes (which allows storage administrators to decide which data needs to remain in the local tiers) have expanded the value of Azure StorSimple for customers and partners.
Between Aug 2016 - Oct 2016, Microsoft is offering a series of educational sessions for IT Pros to get intimately familiarized with some of these innovations, as well as get a practitioner’s view around planning, implementing, and managing the deployment scenarios. All sessions are delivered (over Skype) by seasoned professionals with several years of consulting & implementation experience. The sessions consist of 40% theory and 60% demo and practical tips. As a follow-up to the sessions, participants can request personalized 1-1 consulting sessions on actual customer scenarios that they are working on. In addition, the session will introduce the audience to several resources for continued learning beyond these sessions. In the last 6 months, these sessions have been widely acclaimed for efficacy and usefulness to the IT Pro community – training over 900 professions across 650 unique organizations, globally. While it’s best to have a background in storage, the sessions will also benefit infrastructure professionals who want to grow their expertise in Azure hybrid cloud storage.
