The purpose of this book is to help you understand the fundamentals of Microsoft Azure so you can hit the ground running when you start using it. If you don’t have an Azure account, you should consider signing up for a free trial at azure.microsoft.com. If you have an MSDN subscription, you should activate the included Azure benefits and use the associated monthly credit. With an Azure account, you can work through the demos in this book and use them as hands-on labs.

If you are a SysAdmin who already supports solutions on the Linux platform at scale, you are probably familiar with Chef and Puppet. Did you know they are also available in Azure for both Linux and Windows Machines? You can take your existing instructions and configurations and configure agents on your IaaS instances to point to your servers for deployment. Learn how to implement these amazing technologies for your Linux and Windows Azure hosted solutions.
