Location Change: Northern NJ .NET User Group (N3UG) Meeting Tuesday 5/8/2012 at Microsoft Office in Iselin, NJ!

The Northern NJ .NET User Group has long met at Set Focus in Parsippany, NJ.  Unfortunately, due to policy changes at Set Focus’s facility, the group will no longer be able to meet at there.  For the May 8th meeting, the group will meet at the Microsoft Office in Iselin, NJ.  

Edwin, Scott, and Uday are actively searching for a new location to meet in the Parsippany area.  If anyone who belongs to the group has an office they’d be able to offer up for hosting the monthly meetings, let me or the leaders know!  If you don’t belong to the group, but know of a place in Northern NJ that would be suitable to host a monthly user group, let us know!

Topic & Speaker

Terramark Iaas [Infrastructure as a Service]

Microsoft Azure is a system that is known as Platform as a Service (PaaS).  There’s another type of cloud system that in many ways is closer to our existing data centers. 
These systems are known as Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS).  In this presentation, you will see a detailed introduction in using Terremark’s vCloud Express (IaaS) system.  Terremark has an outstanding control console and a very robust IaaS architecture.

You will learn now to deploy your applications to vCloud Express.  Details will include common needed to-do tasks as well as information on how to avoid common pitfalls and issues.
