7 lessons I’ve learned using Scrum for infrastructure projects

Written by Bob Molenaar

I’ve been a consultant for almost 20 years. My recent experiences with Agile Scrum made me think of some of the infrastructure projects I have done and how Scrum could have made those projects easier. Scrum is known to have the best practices for software development projects, but the experiences I’ve had with Scrum, prove that this method is also a good way to manage infrastructure projects.  I believe that Scrum can be used for more than just software development. In this blog, I’ll share 7 lessons I’ve learned using Scrum for infrastructure projects.

Base Image Script Framework (BIS-F) – Version 6.0.1

the perfect way to seal your Base Image

by Matthias Schlimm, April 2017

Every time you build your base Image from scratch or update it, you must seal it before deploying it to your cloned devices. No matter if you are using Citrix XenApp/XenDesktop with Machine Creation Services (MCS) or Provisioning Services (PVS), VMware View or Microsoft only, BIS-F supports it all. Optimize your base Image before deployment, deletes unique identifier to prevent duplicate/ghost entries on your management server (Anti-Virus, SCCM, SCOM, etc.…), delete junk files, defrag you’re disk etc. All these necessary steps and much more has to be run manually, but here is a better way. Here’s the right tool for the job.

Base Image Script Framework (BIS-F) is 100% PowerShell driven and addresses tons of optimizations plus it has a great logging feature.
