Azure Advisor: New recommendations and tighter integrations
Posted on 24 September 2018
Additional recommendations are now available in Azure Advisor, your personalised guide to Azure best practices. Advisor is a free service that helps you optimise your Azure resources to reduce costs, boost performance, strengthen security and improve reliability.
The new recommendations will advise you when you could boost performance for Azure SQL Data Warehouse by creating or updating table statistics and correcting data skew in your tables, better protect your data from accidental deletion by enabling soft delete on Azure Storage blobs, take advantage of the latest security features by migrating to Azure Resource Manager from Azure Storage accounts and avoid single points of failure with Azure ExpressRoute circuits when using Microsoft Peering for Office 365. We have also enabled a tighter integration between the Azure Virtual Machines experience in the Azure portal and Advisor, and started surfacing Advisor cost recommendations in Azure Cost Management.
