Get Answers to Your MS Azure Questions During Monthly Office Hours

Microsoft Azure is a great tool to help you process your information for a data-heavy project. Though getting started can be intimidating, OTDI has partnered with Microsoft to offer a variety of forums you can use to get information about leveraging Azure’s resources for your specific project needs.

In March we are offering office hours on the third Monday of every month from 2-3 p.m.. Ohio State Azure Office Hours are an opportunity to bring your questions to Microsoft Azure Solution Cloud Architects via online meeting. 

  • Provide Azure customers with updates pertaining to Azure and the Cloud Ecosystem
  • As topics allow, host short talks and/or demo on Azure Cloud technologies
  • Field questions from OSU about using Azure for the university’s goals and efforts.  Bring your problems in search of solutions!

Note that this forum is not intended to replace existing support mechanisms (read on for details) and won’t be the place to do deep dive design, troubleshooting, and break fix but is a great place to start with questions and as a way to stay informed about Azure.  Agendas will be shared approximately a week in advance.  We welcome any suggestions from OSU on topics you’d like to discuss.  Please send any suggested topics to
