applications on your Mobile Phone, Tablet, or any Device to Work, Learn in any environment you want. Sharing Microsoft technology with the Community and in Education via Social media is what I love to do on a daily bases. I hope you enjoyed the information in 2015 with Microsoft Products like :
- Microsoft Azure Cloud Services
- Azure Backup Server
- Azure Security Centre
- Microsoft Operations Management Suite
- Windows Server 2016 TP4
- Windows Containers
- Nano Server
- System Center 2016 TP4
- Bringing Azure to your Datacenter with Microsoft Azure Stack

- Microsoft Loves Linux and GitHub and OpenSource
- and much more !
I wish you all a Healthy Life and a lot of Success in 2016 !
Microsoft is transforming Datacenters with New Technology and making Hybrid Cloud possible for your Applications.
What I personally like is the Microsoft Hololens this is something different, but very Cool to be in a Virtual Reality World with
awesome possibilities in 2016 and in the Future 🙂
Thank you Community, Followers, Microsoft Product Teams, MVP Award Program, MVP’s, Developers, ITpro’s, Students, for Sharing !

App Controller provides a unified console that helps you manage public clouds and private clouds, as well as cloud-based virtual machines and services.
When you have installed Microsoft System Center 2012 SP1 APP Controller, you can install your Windows Azure subscription for managing your public cloud virtual services.
Here you can find the step-by-step installation managing your Windows Azure certificate for System Center 2012 SP1 APP Controller
From here you are ready to deploy for example an virtual machine in Windows Azure, here is the step-by-step deployment :
Login screen App Controller
The Deployment wizard will help you step-by-step beginning with Cloud Configure…
Here we select the Windows Azure Cloud for the new virtual machine.
Mountainss Public Cloud is selected, go to the next step Deployment Type select an item…
Here you see the Library of Windows Azure and I will deploy a Windows Server 2012 image.
Configure Cloud Service
Here you can create a new Cloud Service also, but I use Mountainss and Click OK
Give the VirtualMachine a Name and Choose an Instance size with an Availability set.
Select the Storage pool in Windows Azure
For storage I created a new extra ” Cluster Disk” to the Virtual Machine
Select Subnet and configure your public ports
Set here your administrator credentials
From here we are ready to deploy the Virtual Machine into Microsoft Windows Azure
System Center 2012 SP1 APP Controller is deploying the VM into Windows Azure
The Virtual Machine is deployed and running in Windows Azure
Connect the Virtual Machine with Remote Desktop
You Can see with Server Manager from the VM the Extra ” Cluster Disk ” we made with System Center 2012 SP1 APP Controller wizard
In the Windows Azure Management Portal you see your new VM.
In a view minutes your VM is deployed with System Center 2012 SP1 APP Controller and running in Windows Azure
Here you see the deployed Cloud Services in System Center 2012 SP1 APP Controller
The Microsoft MVP Global Summit 2013 week in Seattle Redmond USA was Great, with all MVP’s over the World together.

Connecting a Windows Azure Subscription to App Controller
Certificates are used to set up trust between the Windows Azure management API and App Controller. This authentication allows App Controller to call on the Windows Azure API when you perform tasks such as deploying services or change configuration properties. The service certificate, or Personal Information Exchange certificate (.pfx file), contains a private key. App Controller stores this certificate in the App Controller database. Since the certificate contains the private key, you need to provide the password so that App Controller can use the private key. The management certificate (.cer file) contains only the public key, which is kept in Windows Azure for accessing the API. Windows Azure allows customers to create their own management certificates, either self-signed certificates or using their preferred certification authority (CA). By giving Windows Azure the public key and keeping the private key local, the authentication can be completed.
If you are creating a certificate, you will need to export the certificate twice—once as a .cer file, and then a second time as a .pfx file, for use in App Controller. For more information about how to create and export certificates for connections to Windows Azure subscriptions, see How to Create a Management Certificate and How to Add a Management Certificate to a Windows Azure Subscription in the Windows Azure Platform section of the MSDN Library.
Before you begin with the WindowsAzure subscription you have to make an Management X.509 Certificate for Windows Azure.
Step by step how to make the Certicates :
First you start certmgr.msc and go to personal Certificate and make a Export for Windows Azure management.
When you saved the Certificate for Windows Azure Management, you have to upload this certificate to Windows Azure portal.
After this you have to make a secure certificate (PFX) for System Center 2012 App Controller Beta.
We need this certificate in System Center 2012 SP1 App Controller Beta.
Give the Windows Azure Subscription a name and browse to the PFX certificate and type the password of the certificate and click on OK.
This is all you have to do to make Windows Azure Available in System Center 2012 SP1 App Controller Beta.
