Hariharan Jayaraman joins Scott Hanselman to talk about the Azure Instance Metadata Service, which provides information about running virtual machine instances that you can use to manage and configure your virtual machines. Use the service to get information such as SKU, network configuration, and upcoming maintenance events.For more information, see:Azure Instance Metadata service (docs)General Availability of Instance Metadata Service in Global Azure Regions (blog post)Leverage Azure instance metadata for instance bootstrap and runtime (Build 2017 session)
Ziv Rafalovich joins Scott Hanselman to talk about improvements to the planned maintenance experience in Azure, including better visibility and control of maintenance events that impact virtual machine availability. Learn how to create alerts, discover which virtual machines are scheduled for maintenance, and proactively start the maintenance using the Azure portal, REST API, Azure PowerShell, or Azure CLI.
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.

Scott digs in with Neil Gat and learns how to scale VM scales set to new heights! With all VMs configured the same, VM scale sets are designed to support true autoscale – no pre-provisioning of VMs is required – and as such makes it easier to build large-scale services targeting big compute, big data, and containerized workloads.
Scott talks with Ross Gardler about how Azure Container Service can be used to scale your Docker and container-based work-loads easier than ever.
Scott learns from Neil Gat about Azure VM Scale Sets. VM Scale Sets are an Azure Compute resource you can use to deploy and manage a collection of virtual machines as a set. Scale sets are well suited for building large-scale services targeting big compute, big data, and containerized workloads – all of which are increasing in significance as cloud computing continues to evolve.
Scott talks to Ross Gardler about using Azure Container Service with Docker and the Docker command line. Ross builds, deploys, and scales dozens of machines with in Azure all using Docker and the Azure Container Service.
Scott talks to Ross Gardler about the new Azure Container Service! Azure Container Service optimizes the configuration of popular open source tools and technologies specifically for Azure. You get an open solution that offers portability for both your containers and your application configuration.
This Data Driven session discusses why Azure Virtual Machine is the best cloud platform to run SQL Server 2016. It provides an overview of the SQL Server deployment, configuration, management and monitoring.
