As my Azure IaaS Operations Guide continues to grow, I wanted to break off parts for their own sections. For the Azure IaaS Ops Guide I want it to focus on administration of storage, compute, and networking. Whenever we have customer conversations around monitoring Azure, it follows then that for security and compliance that Auditing and Security concerns need to be addressed as well for Storage, Compute and Networking. Therefore, here are my collected resources for the three Amigos of Monitoring, Security, and Auditing, Ole! But later, a separate page on Security is coming...as it is definitely needed!
To save you a little time in all the reading below, let's share a couple great high-level diagrams from the first two articles. These should get you interested to roll up your sleeves and start making a plan!
The first one is an overview of the monitoring process.
The next diagram outlines more specifically what types of logs can be collected from Azure and what you can do with that data.
If you like what you see above, the start with the first two articles below, and then dive in further as needed. The latest Ignite 2016 presentation is also just below. A good show indeed to watch.
I'll leave these here for now....but soon will be working on a Security specific page, as its own, it will need!
