Hi Azure Pack fans!

 

Marc van Eijk en I have had some hands-on at Azure Pack (formerly known as Windows Azure Services for Windows Server). There is a lot of info out there, but very scattered. Hopefully we can keep this WAP Wiki updated every now and then. Feel free to add to this Wiki!

Best regards,
