In case you couldn’t catch the Inside Azure Management Virtual Summit live we have now uploaded the recordings. You can check them out at Inside Azure Management YouTube channel. Enjoy the free content.
As you know we recently have released the fourth edition of Inside Azure Management book. What is better then free book? – A free book and free virtual summit. Yes that is right we are organizing a free virtual summit titled Inside Azure Management. I must say the actual organization is mainly led by Peter Zerger so once again I would like to thank him for his efforts. The virtual summit will take place on 23rd of July. If you want to register you can check the official web site of the event. You will find some interesting sessions and speakers that you might not see so much on other events. I will be delivering a session titled "Exploring Configuration Management in Azure" which will focus on showing you the different configuration management options within Azure with focus on Azure Policy and Azure Resource Manager Deployments.
It is also important to say that if you like the summit and you want to help people you can check one of the causes we are supporting with this event.
Enjoy the summit!!!
The time has come to publish the Inside Azure Management v4 book. This is the only free book that focuses on Azure Management. If you want you can also support us with purchase from Amazon. Links for both the free and purchasable version you will find below. It is needless to say that the authors of this book Pete Zerger, Tao Yang and Kevin Greene and me have put a lot of effort. Additionally also Ryan Irujo, Alexandre Verkinderen and Bert Wolters have put also a lot of effort in authoring of certain chapters. I would like to thank to all authors for the great work. Comparing v3 to v4 release we have tried to make the existing content better with providing even more examples. Overall we have followed the same guidance as before: trying to give you less content that is already available and focus on tips, tricks, scenarios and examples. Any feedback you can send it to us via e-mail: insidemscloud (at) outlook.com. I hope that you will enjoy our work and you will find it useful.
These are challenging times for the whole world but to stay true to ourselves we are preparing for the release of the 4th edition of Inside Azure Management book. We expect to be ready no later than 15th of May but as you can understand many of us are busy supporting our customers from home. The book as always will be free download but of course you will be able to purchase it via Amazon as well if you want to. Return to this blog post in a few days to check for the Amazon link. We have worked hard to update the content to the latest changes inside Azure but also to give you some new scenarios.
With the recent capability of setting retention period for Log Analytics data per table a lot of new possibilities of managing and retaining your data pop-up. A common scenario is that you may have a lot of performance data which may be logged every minute or even every 10 seconds. You need that data in such short intervals in your Log Analytics workspace only for the past month or so but you do not need such granularity for older data. At the same time it is good to have some summarization (aggregation) of that data for longer period due to compliance, analysis, etc but there is a cost associated when you retain a lot of data for longer period. By using serverless and the new per table retention capability now you can achieve this and save cost. In this blog I will show you how you can achieve this with simple example.
