European Collaboration Summit (ECS) 2019 - Tutorial - Recap

Today I've had the great opportunity to attend a very informative and well held full day tutorial at ECS which was about "SOUP TO NUTS: MICROSOFT AZURE POWERCLASS". Mustafa Toroman and Saลกa Kranjac did a really good job giving attendees a broad overview of different Azure services. I've been working with Azure since 2014 and boy I can ensure you that I've learned a lot today about it :)

I did a couple of notes during the tutorial that I'd like to share with the community. Here they are:

• Set up availability options for Azure Virtual Machine because of data security
    - Availability Set => separated infrastructure
    - Availability Zone => Different locations
• Azure Hybrid Benefits => Reuse existing licenses to save money
• Prices are different depending on the Azure location
• Azure VM disks:
    - Standard disks (HDD): only pay for the used space
    - Premium disks (SSD): you pay for the amount of disks you've reserved
• Choose from static or dynamic IP address when working with VM. By default, dynamic is selected
• Azure Stack starts from 250.000 euros. On top you must pay the consumed services ๐Ÿ˜Š
• Option "Allow access to Azure services" only guarantees that requests are from Azure data centers
• Azure Log Analytics has been renamed to Azure Monitor
• DevOps Model
    - Plan
    - Develop + Test
    - Release
    - Monitor + Learn
• Continuous Delivery => Automate the process all away through
• Continuous Deployment => Human interaction is required
• Security strategy in Azure:
    - Just enough administration => Users get only the enough permission to execute jobs
    - Just in time administration => Users get access only for a period of time
• KeyVault is great => Just use it
• O365 tenants (it also applies to other environments) should have at least two global administrators
• Just In time access for VM => Allows user to have access to an Azure VM just for a period of time

Thanks Mustafa Toroman and Saลกa Kranjac for the shared knowledge, the jokes and the answered questions ๐Ÿ˜Š

I'm really looking forward for tomorrow. There are so many interesting sessions to attend. It's going to be one of those days that passes very quickly.

See you tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜‰
