Building a VM in Windows Azure using PowerShell in a few quick steps

Standard

Just a cross post highlighting my blog entry on our team blog called  “Ask PFE Platforms” about building VM in Windows Azure using PowerShell.

“……….today I would like to walk you through building a VM in Windows Azure using your favorite management tool ‘PowerShell’, and in doing so you will also unlock 133 cmdlets that will help you manage other services you may have running in Windows Azure. If you have not signed up for a 90 day trial yet, I suggest you give it a try. Also did you know if you have an existing MSDN subscription, you may be entitled to up to 1500 compute hours that’s $6500 in annual Windows Azure benefits at no charge.”

PowerShell Web Access in Windows Server 2012

Standard

 

Just a cross post highlighting my blog entry on our team blog called  “Ask PFE Platforms” about a neat feature in Windows Server 2012 called PowerShell Web Access.

“…..you can use the new PowerShell Web Access (PSWA) feature in Windows Server 2012 to allow remote administrative access to a set of servers in your IT infrastructure. Furthermore, you can granularly delegate access and only expose specific administrative privileges to different levels of support teams in your IT environment. PowerShell Web Access (PSWA) brings great remote manageability in Windows Server 2012. It acts as a gateway to provide full or limited access into the PowerShell sessions on remote servers.”
