The cloud is secure, right?

Richard chats with J Peter Bruzzese about his experiences helping companies secure Office 365, focusing primarily on Exchange Online.

The conversation turns to social engineering in email - the most common exploit approach these days for ransomware, even getting fake invoices paid out.

Education of users can only go so far - you need tools like Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection - https://products.office.com/en-ca/exchange/online-email-threat-protection

What does it take to run the network of a public cloud?

Richard chats with Albert Greenberg, Microsoft CVP and responsible for Azure networking.

As Albert says, the art of public cloud networking is sharing everything while appearing to share nothing.

The discussion turns to Azure's virtual networking with reference to a great article at https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/virtual-networks-overview/

This is networking at maximum scale - no simple solutions!

Ready for Nano Server?

Richard chats with Andrew Mason about his experiences creating Nano Server.

The conversation starts out exploring the differences between Server Core and Nano Server - Nano is much smaller, less than half a gig!

But Core supports more features, including Active Directory, which doesn't run in Nano yet.

Andrew mentions that Nano Server will only run 64 bit apps, you can use the NanoServerAPIScan at http://ow.ly/ojHm306kEbA to make sure your app works.

If you developed a 64-bit application, tool, or agent for Windows Server in C/C++, you can use NanoServerApiScan.exe to check if your app will also run on Nano Server. Remember that Nano Server is 64-bit only and won’t run 32-bit binaries. NanoServerApiScan.exe scans a directory containing your binaries and reports an error if it finds an...

The DevOps Handbook is finally released and it's awesome!

How does your Active Directory data look?

Richard talks to Chris Johnson of Hyperfish about the reality that most AD personnel info is only the minimum data necessary to make email work. But there's so much more that can be done when the data is properly populated!

Chris talks about HyperFish - https://hyperfish.com/ - his start up to help companies get their employees to update their AD data. It shouldn't take a tech support call!
