Lately I’ve been focusing a lot of my time on Azure. There is a good reason for that. I truly believe that cloud services s the way of the future. It will change and expand what we do the same way the personal computer changed the way system administrators managed the computing resources in the 80 and the same way virtualization has changed the way we managed datacenters in the last 5 to 10 years.
Part of our mission here at CANITPRO is to provide you with the tools you need to adapt to this ever changing landscape. We do that by writing about how to use these new tools, new products and new services. And how they will make your environment more efficient, more dynamic and more reliable. Well, the landscape is changing again. Catch up using Microsoft Virtual Academy. I recommend the following learning opportunities:
Like I said earlier… Azure is changing again… Well, the portal is. The new portal with is in preview right now is designed so you can manage websites, databases, virtual machines, storage and Visual Studio Online team projects among a ton of other things… All in a reimagined UX that you personalize around your work.
In my case I’ve customized it to show me the health of my virtual networks, the domain controller that I have running up in the cloud and some other information I find useful. All of it at a glance. I can now access all my Azure resources. More cloud services. And a steady stream of continuous innovation to help me deliver better results and move forward, faster. it can do the same for you.
For example. Since we always have to keep an eye on our resources I really like the way I can monitor my Azure billing. I can see right away where my budgets are being spent on and I have no more blind spots.
Take it for a test drive. customize it for your needs. I know you can benefit from it.
