Tech ONTAP Podcast - Episode 37 - DevOps on Windows

It’s official… DevOps is taking the IT industry by storm. As we’ve discussed previously on the show, this movement is different as it’s more a shift in how we work. On this week’s show we bring in Michael Greene from Microsoft and Steve Murawski from Chef to discuss DevOps and their recent whitepaper on the Release Pipeline model for a practical look at managing infrastructure as code.


Michael Greene (@migreene) is a Principal Program Manager at Microsoft in the Enterprise Cloud Group division. Michael is the PowerShell & DevOps lead for the CAT team (Customers, Architecture, and Technology). He drives customer feedback in the areas of management and automation, creates content to improve the customer experience, and provides a connection to engineering for projects that are adopting new products and technologies. Previously he worked in Office 365 operations where he gained experience using PowerShell to manage environments at cloud scale.


Steven Murawski (@stevenmurawski) is a Principal Engineer on the Community Engineering team at Chef and a Microsoft Cloud and Datacenter Management MVP. Steven is active in the Chef, PowerShell, and DevOps communities, locally and online. Prior to arriving at Chef, Steven was a sysadmin for Microsoft focused infrastructures – most notably at Stack Overflow, where he pioneered the use of Windows PowerShell Desired State Configuration on Windows Server operating systems.
