Opening Keynote: Transformation

Aidan Finn from MicroWarehouse here, and this time I want to talk about the theme of Cloud Camp 2018 – change. It’s pretty easy to slip into a rut and do things “the way they’ve always been done”. The problem with that is the world moves on. Clothes aren’t produced on a manually powered loom…

It’s Aidan Finn from MicroWarehouse again, and this time I’m going to talk about securing a critical asset – your data.

Session Highlight: Azure AD Domain Services – Domain Controllers in the Cloud

It’s Aidan Finn from MicroWarehouse here again. Azure AD is deeply misunderstood by most people. Office 365 administrators often have no idea that the user accounts are Azure AD (the tenant) user accounts that are used by Office 365 – they assume that they’re Office 365 user accounts. And the terms “Azure AD” and “domain”…

Session Highlight: Protecting VMware & Windows Using Azure

Aidan Finn from MicroWarehouse again! Backup is both one of the most important things that IT does, and one of the most annoying things that we must do in IT. Sit back and think for a minute – how many hours have you wasted fixing tape drives, cataloguing tapes for a restore, restoring a “job…
