Azure Application Insights JavaScript SDK: reliability and performance improvements

Monday, February 13, 2017

Recently, we have improved the robustness of web page monitoring in Application Insights, and introduced the ability not to use cookies. Transmission is now more reliable in the face of throttling and network issues, and when a page is about to unload. With Azure Application Insights you can monitor performance and usage of your apps. With a little snippet of JavaScript you can get timings of page loads and AJAX calls, counts and details of browser exceptions and AJAX failures, as well as users and session counts.

Announcing general availability of Managed Disks and larger Scale Sets

Wednesday, February 8, 2017

Today, I am excited to announce the general availability of Managed Disks. With this PaaS-like support, you no longer need to be concerned with the complexity of storage management nor worry about storage as you scale. Yet, you still have the full power and control you expect and love with Azure VMs – a "PaaS bridge" on our IaaS VMs.
