1週間の海外出張から帰ってきて代休を経て出社したところ、マネージャが突然やってきて黒い四角い物体を差し出してこういった。 「おかえり。これ、もう使ってないんだけど、何か入れるんだったら使っていいよ。」 「え、何ですか?これ。サーバー的なの?」 「うん。サーバーにしてもいいよ。確かi5 のプロセッサと 16GB の RAM と積んでる。」 「TP4 入れて遊んでいいですか?」 「いいよ。使うならキーボードとマウスも後から持ってくるね。」 ちょうど、海外出張で Windows Server 2016 の機能についてあれこれ聞いてきたところだったので実機が触ってみたかったことが読まれてる…(‘Д’) こんな簡単なやり取りからはじまって、謎の黒い物体が手元にやってきた。   この黒い四角い物体は Intel さんの出している NUC という小さな筐体のx86 マシン。 http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/nuc/nuc-kit-d54250wyk.html   小さい筐体に 16GB の RAMと 256GB の SSD を搭載し、Core-i5 のCPU を積んで WiFi とオンボードの NIC が搭載されてるベアメタルで使うのにはちょっとパワフルな子でした。 早速 TP4 をこちらからDL してインストールしたところ、なぜか NIC が認識しない。 Tech Preview だけに、ドライバが無い状態です。 ESXi の場合はサポートしていない H/W の場合は似たドライバの VIB…

Multiple Azure Cloud Environments

Most real world enterprise Azure deployments will require more than one environment.  A typical topology is represented below: There are many resources available that describe this concept so it will not be re-explained here.  Instead this post will present one approach to setting this up in Azure.

The week in .NET – 2/11/2016

This issue of the Week in .NET is slightly late, and I apologize for that. I was visiting some customers in California for the first half of the week, and they’ve kept me very busy. I’m writing this post on the plane to Seattle. While I was in LA, I also visited the LADOTNET user…


Monitor Team Services web extensions with Visual Studio Application Insights

One of the top questions we get from developers building extensions for Visual Studio Team Services is “Are people using my extension“?
