Old is not bad as you think…

I had a train ticket booked from Bangalore to Chennai after a training. I planned and started from office on time (3pm) to catch the Shatabdi train (4.25pm) and reached Cantonment by Uber taxi in 50 minutes ahead of the train time. I got a call from my wife by 3.58 pm and said that Shatabti won’t stop at Cantonment, Bang !!!.  Just over 25 minutes left, and I need to reach Bangalore City Railway station from Cantonment in the hectic Bangalore traffic, I literally gave up and told her to look for bus ticket.

Old vs New

However, I decided to give it a try, otherwise I wasn’t sure whether I would end up going back to the hotel and may have to delay my travel further, during the festival season.  My natural choice would have been booking Uber or Ola cab, but I decided to hire an auto which was right in front of me, that saved me minimum of 5 minutes of waiting time for OLA/Uber and also auto guys could beat the traffic better than taxi. I checked my google map and it showed me 4.30 pm as ETA but I wasn’t sure with the number of signal the auto should cross. However, auto guy managed to get me closer but nearly 1 KM away from the station. And then we were stuck at the signal with more than 300 meters long traffic. I got down and walked around 400 meter and got in another auto just for another 400 meters and reached railway station. Then I took the help of carriers(porter) to run with me with my travel bag and also to locate the train as I was not familiar with that station, finally I got in the train by 4.35 pm and the train started by 4.36pm. Thanks to Railways (train was late) and my luck J. I would have missed the train if I had opted for App taxi or stayed in the first auto or had not used those carrier guys for sure.

Bring Home Azure with Azure Stack

It is not just the public cloud today, but it is Hybrid Cloud.

Microsoft is working on making our hybrid life less difficult by introducing Azure stack. We all know the pain of getting Microsoft System Center integrated and working on-premises to enable private cloud. Yes, I agree with you SC is not a candidate for comparing it with Azure Stack. However, I believe Azure Stack will be solving these issues and bringing cloud to your data center with ‘Pay as You Use’ Pricing model.

What is Azure stack as per Microsoft?

Microsoft Azure Stack is a hybrid cloud platform that lets you deliver Azure services from your organization’s datacenter. Bring the agility and fast-paced innovation of cloud computing to your on-premises environment with Azure Stack. This extension of Azure allows you to modernize your applications across hybrid cloud environments, balancing flexibility and control.
