The goal of the Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) product line architecture (PLA) is to help organizations develop and implement private cloud infrastructures quickly while reducing complexity and risk. The IaaS PLA provides a reference architecture that combines Microsoft software, consolidated guidance, and validated configurations with partner technologies such as compute, network, and storage architectures, in addition to value-added software features.
The private cloud model provides much of the efficiency and agility of cloud computing, with the increased control and customization that are achieved through dedicated private resources. By implementing private cloud configurations that align to the IaaS PLA, Microsoft and its hardware partners can help provide organizations the control and the flexibility that are required to reap the potential benefits of the private cloud.
The IaaS PLA utilizes the core capabilities of the Windows Server operating system, Hyper-V, and System Center to deliver a private cloud infrastructure as a service offering. These are also the key software features and components that are used for every reference implementation.
Windows and Windows Server Automation with Windows PowerShell
Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1
This topic lists the Windows PowerShell modules included with Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1. The Windows PowerShell modules in the list support automating the features of those operating systems and provide links to the cmdlet references for each module. These modules enable you to use Windows PowerShell to administer, maintain, configure, and develop new features for Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2.
This white paper is meant to show you a real world deployment of a fabric infrastructure that is supporting network virtualization with NVGRE for hybrid cloud computing, together with Windows Azure Pack.
Read this great whitepaper first when you start with Microsoft Private Cloud and Hybrid Cloud computing made by my fellow MVP’s :

The Name of the On-Premisses VPN Site, we called YellowTenant.
The outside IP-Address of your VPN Device, that’s our Microsoft RAS Server. ( Remote Access Server)
And you add the local address Space, in our case 192.168.101.0/24
Here we select the Address Space for the Microsoft Windows Azure VM’s with the subnets and Gateway range.
Up to 5 Virtual Networks are allowed per subscription and up to 5 Local Networks are allowed per subscription. Each Virtual Network can connect to only one Local Network (one gateway) but there can be multiple subnets on that Local Network for routing purposes.
All the information is there to create the Microsoft Azure VPN Gateway.
Creating the Gateway takes a few minutes.
The Gateway is ready now on Microsoft Azure, go to the right site of the screen and download the VPN Device Script :
With the right VPN Device Script you connect your on-premisses VPN Device with the Microsoft Azure Gateway you just created.
Here you can choose your VPN Device, we have a Microsoft Server 2012 R2 with RAS role active so we choose this one.
Your business requires a flexible IT infrastructure that can scale on demand. With a private cloud in your datacenter, you can be more agile and manage resources more effectively. When you extend your datacenter to meet the public cloud, you are working in a hybrid cloud model. A hybrid cloud gives you the best of both worlds, so you can take advantage of external resources when it makes sense for your business. The Microsoft hybrid cloud combines Windows Azure, Windows Server, and Microsoft System Center, giving you Microsoft’s enterprise-grade technology in both your company’s own datacenter and our global datacenters.
Extending into the cloud should expand your options without adding complexity. A Microsoft hybrid cloud lets you easily move workloads from your datacenter to Windows Azure or a hosting service provider’s datacenter, while still maintaining a complete view of the infrastructure. You can build hybrid applications that leverage both on-premises and cloud resources. And you can take advantage of storage, backup, and recovery options with increased efficiency and reduced cost.
Here are some Great examples of Microsoft Hybrid Cloud :
Een stralend nieuwe dag in IT – Ervaar het vandaag!
Er zijn vandaag meer apps, meer apparaten en meer gegevens dan ooit tevoren – allemaal mogelijk gemaakt door de opkomst van cloud computing en allemaal verbonden met cloud services.
