Azure Weekly - ☁️ Azure Weekly #372 - 22nd May 2022

Azure Weekly Newsletter Issue #372

powered by endjin

Welcome to issue 372 of Azure Weekly! Quite a busy edition this week, considering this is usually the "calm before the BUILD storm". Some highlights: Azure Artifacts introduces new Upstreaming capabilities, and the Azure Service Operator in Beta - this is a really interesting feature to provision and manage your Azure resources from within a Kubernetes environment. This sounds like a very useful approach if you have a multi-tenant or SaaS based application.

The clock is ticking down to February 2024, so you need to start planning your ADLS Gen1 to ADLS Gen2 Migrations: Options and Best Practices. Staying with Analytics, the Azure Synapse Influencer Program has been announced this week.

It's the Microsoft BUILD 2022 conference this week. It's digital again, and free to register (which is worth doing so that you can catch up on recordings over the next few weeks). A number of blog posts were published this week highlighting sessions for various topic tracks: An Azure Developer's guide to Microsoft Build 2022, and A Data and AI guide to Build 2022, and An IT professionals guide to Azure at Build 2022, and Azure Arc at Build 2022: Heres where you should go.

Finally, this post jumped out, as we've been working on helping a customer improve performance and scalability over the last few months, and Application Insights is an absolute powerhouse of a tool, and yet many people don't use it, and few people understand how to get the most out of it, so this article is timely and worth a read: Diagnose App Service Web Apps' Performance Issues And Failing Issues Using Application Insights. Finally, I enjoyed reading this article, which tallies with a number of points in our Azure Data Strategy Briefing which covers the same area of planning your Data & Analytics roadmap: Bring Vision to Life with Three Horizons, Data Mesh, Data Lakehouse, and Azure Cloud Scale Analytics.
