In this article we will explore how to find your current usage of network resources against your subscription limits in Azure. This is helpful to both track current usage and plan for future usage. There are three ways to view this data, each with some variance on results; so let’s dive right in and find out about pushing our limits!
A summary update on Azure news that includes updates released from Microsoft Azure related to Azure, Architecture, Compute, and Sentinel topics. Save time digging around to find recent releases and changes. Released March 13th. Great updates and sunny days on the way!
Last time we looked at some different ways of getting started with managing your Azure resources. Today I’d like to introduce you a little bit to Azure Automation – this time for saving money in shutting down unused resources – and also starting them on a schedule. Last article we created a demo resource group called…
Let’s take a ground-level look at managing your resources in Azure. I want to introduce a few different methods to control your resources such as virtual machines, storage accounts, and anything that you keep within a resource group really. Let’s dive right in and find some different ways to work with and control our resources!
Microsoft Azure Spot VMs can represent significant savings to an organization when combined with good overall resource management practices. Today, […]
Today we take a deeper look at Spot VMs in Azure and how to request a quota limit increase for all virtual machines in Microsoft Azure. Spot VMs allow you to take advantage of unused capacity on Azure VM hosts at a significant cost savings in exchange for letting Azure remove VMs if a pay-as-you-go or reserved instance needs those resources.
Today we take a look at Spot VMs in Azure and what it’s all about. Spot VMs allow you to take advantage of unused capacity on Azure VM hosts at a significant cost savings; but there is a catch. Your VMs can be evicted if Azure needs the capacity back. This style of VM hosting can be used for low-priority workloads and managed using a few different settings. Let’s explore Spot VMs in Azure together!
Continuing our Azure Resource Mover tutorial, we will pick up at the Initiate Move stage. This is Part 2 of 2 articles using Resource Mover to move a VM and associated bits to a new region. We are moving our demo VM from West Europe to East US, and it’s been going really well! We left off having completed the Prepare stage on our remaining resources and the Resource Group has already been moved and committed to the new region.
Today we’ll take a look at how to use Azure Resource Mover to move a virtual machine with some supporting resources to a different region. Reasons to do this are to reduce cost of resources, move a VM to a region where other services it connects to are located, or because you need to have a resource located in specific region for compliance reasons. Either way, today, we move a VM from Europe to the USA in just a few minutes! You can’t even fly across the ocean that fast!
