System Center and Azure
This session will cover the concept of a public cloud, the System Center Suite, and how the two work together.

As Azure continues to expand, System Center will play an increasing role in managing the cloud space.  Not only is System Center itself is still key, but System Center’s abilities are also being integrated into the cloud itself.  I’ll discuss how “classic” System Center functionality is addressed in Azure.
