Bahram Banisadr introduces Scott Hanselman to Azure Event Grid, which is a fully-managed event service for managing events across many different Azure services and applications. Made for performance and scale, it simplifies building event-driven applications and serverless architectures.
Matt Nielson joins Donovan Brown to show off a preview of App Service Domain, which gives you a first-class experience in the Azure portal to create and manage domains that will be hosted on Azure DNS for your Azure services such as Web Apps, Traffic Manager, Virtual Machines, and more.
Kirill Gavrylyuk talks Cosmos DB and Graphs with Scott, exploring why we need graphs, and what we can we do with graphs on Cosmos DB. Cosmos DB offers native graph gremlin API support in addition MongoDB, SQL, and others. Graphs in Cosmos DB enjoy the same global distribution, low latency, limitless throughput, and 99.99% SLAs as other APIs.
Aravind Krishna shows Scott Hanselman how to get started with the Table API for Azure Cosmos DB, the globally distributed multi-model database. Using the API, applications running on Azure Table storage can take advantage of secondary indexes, turnkey global distribution, dedicated throughput, and single digit millisecond latency with 99.99% comprehensive SLAs.
Justin Luk joins Scott Hanselman to discuss the Azure Cloud Shell, a browser-based shell experience hosted in the cloud. With Cloud Shell's built-in authentication and pre-installed tools, getting work done on Azure has never been easier.
Sean McKenna joins Donovan Brown to talk about the newest service in Azure, Azure Container Instances. Azure Container Instances makes it possible to run Linux and Windows containers directly on Azure infrastructure, without setting up and managing VMs and without adopting a higher-level service. See how easy it is to create and manage containers with the Azure CLI and the Azure portal, and learn how Azure Container Instances relates to container orchestrators, such as Kubernetes.
Brendan Burns joins Donovan Brown to discuss the use of Kubernetes with Azure Container Instances. The Azure Container Instances Connector for Kubernetes allows Kubernetes clusters to deploy Azure Container Instances, which enables on-demand and nearly instantaneous container compute, orchestrated by Kubernetes, without having VM infrastructure to manage and while still leveraging the portable Kubernetes API.
With Azure Container Instances, you can create containers in the cloud in seconds. In this video, Mark Whitby, Azure Cloud Solution Architect, demonstrates three scenarios: how to create a single container with an image pulled from Docker's public repository; how to create a new Docker image and upload to a private Azure Container Registry and then deploy that image to a container instance; and how to set up the Azure Container Instances connector for Kubernetes to deploy Azure Container Instances using Azure Container Services and Kubernetes.
In this Microsoft Mechanics episode, Matt McSpirit and Jeff Hollan discuss how you can use Azure serverless offerings to build and deploy elastic-scale, cost-efficient apps using Azure Functions and Logic Apps. You'll see how adopting a serverless compute approach removes the need to worry about hardware resources and the operational complexity of running applications.
Eric Radzikowski joins Scott Hanselman on Azure Friday to discuss how developers can increase application availability by using Azure Scheduled Events to prepare for virtual machine maintenance.
