In today’s world, making sure your cloud infrastructure is secured is important. As you migrate to the cloud, the need to protect sensitive data, prevent accidental changes, and maintain compliance becomes increasingly crucial. One powerful tool in your arsenal to achieve this is Azure Locks. In this blog post, we will explore what Azure Locks are, why they are important, and how you can effectively utilize them to enhance the security of your Azure resources.
Gone are the days of manual calculations and complex spreadsheets to estimate costs. With the capabilities of PowerShell and automation tools we have the ability to streamline the collection of data. Through this blog I will guide you through the steps of utilizing PowerShell to calculate Azure VMware Solution costs.
The Azure VMware Solution (AVS) is a cloud service provided by Microsoft that allows organizations to seamlessly extend their on-premises VMware environments to the Microsoft Azure cloud. It essentially enables you to run and manage your existing VMware workloads in Azure without the need to rearchitect or refactor them.
One powerful tool that Azure offers to enhance security and privacy is the Azure Private Endpoint DNS. This innovative feature allows organizations to establish a private and secure connection to their Azure services, minimizing exposure to potential threats and breaches. This blog will highlight some considerations to be aware of when utilizing it.
This blog will showcase how to deploy an Azure VM that has a configured Microsoft SQL Instance that is connected to a Cloud Block Store (CBS) volume. I have previously showcased VM & CBS deployments with both Powershell and Terraform, but its time to bring it to a new language!
When running workloads in the Public Cloud such as Microsoft Azure, you have a bunch of options when it comes to block storage. How do you know which one to pick? There are alot of choices–tradeoffs, features and sprawl can also occur. In this blog I will cover the different types of disks available to help educate you on some of the purposes and limitations of each.
In previous posts I have covered use cases on how to utilize Pure Cloud Block Store (CBS), but if we look back I haven’t explained how it can be deployed. This blog will cover how to quickly launch the pre-requisites and get your Pure Cloud Block Store deployed in Azure.
Previously I explained how to use Terraform to Deploy an Azure VM. Now that Cloud Block Store iS GA in Azure, I can cover how to use Automation for Test/Dev, Disaster Recovery and Migration use cases to move workloads from on-premises to Microsoft Azure!
