‘In the Cloud’ podcast, Episode 10: Service Template for SharePoint 2013

First published on CloudBlogs on Jun, 21 2013
This week's episode, we discuss the very popular Service Template for SharePoint 2013 and talk with its creator, Jim Britt. I first talked about this service template in my keynote at MMS 2013 , and I encouraged everyone to read more about it in the "Automation" track of the Building Clouds blog. The Service Template is also something I covered briefly in a previous post about workloads , where I noted that what makes the Service Template so interesting is that it demonstrates just how much can be done with an on-premise private cloud.  This solution is also usable by hosters who want a process that is repeatable and streamlined for customer use. You can download the service template here .

Additional benefits & features info about the Service Template:

  • Concentration on Deployment : this service template is really concentrated on pure deployment of an application into a private cloud environment in a repeatable way with automation technology underneath.
  • PowerShell / Application Deployment Integrated with Service Templates : this solution shows you how you could take an existing single or multi-tier application that you currently have some automation for deployment and bringing it into a service template for a multi-tenant execution.
  • Learn by Example : Use the guidance in this solution as more of an example to build your own.
