When we released the capability of automatic update of agents used in disaster recovery of Azure VMs, the most frequent feedback we received was related to access control. The request from customers was to allow them to provide a previously created automation account – approved and created by a person who is entrusted with the right access in the subscription.
To meet customer demand, Azure is continuously expanding. We’ve been adding new Azure regions and introducing new capabilities. As a result, customers want to move their existing virtual machines to new regions while adopting the latest capabilities.
Azure is the first public cloud to offer native disaster recovery solution for applications running on IaaS. We want to start this year with a recap of all the new capabilities that we enabled in the last few months that customers have loved.
One of the biggest hassles faced by administrators while using services provided by cloud providers is the need to catch up with the latest release and stay up-to-date. This involves downloading the latest software and performing frequent upgrades.
