Moving on-premises apps and data to the cloud is a key step in our customers’ migration journey, and we’re committed to helping simplify that process. Earlier this year, we invited customers to participate in the preview of multiple new migration capabilities.
A leader in geosciences, CGG has been imaging the earth’s subsurface for more than 85 years. Their products and solutions help clients locate natural resources.
Today, we are excited to announce the general availability of Azure premium files for customers optimizing their cloud-based file shares on Azure. Premium files offers a higher level of performance built on solid-state drives (SSD) for fully managed file services in Azure.
Azure HC-series Virtual Machines are now generally available in the West US 2 and East US regions. HC-series virtual machines (VMs) are optimized for the most at-scale, computationally intensive HPC applications. For this class of workload, HC-series VMs are the most performant, scalable, and price-performant ever launched on Azure or elsewhere on the public cloud.
In October 2018 we announced the public preview of Azure Monitor for VMs. At that time, we included support for monitoring your virtual machine scale sets from the at scale view under Azure Monitor. Today we are announcing the public preview of monitoring your Windows and Linux virtual machine scale sets from within the scale set resource blade.
For many customers around the world, securely connecting from the outside to workloads and virtual machines on private networks can be challenging. Exposing virtual machines to the public Internet to enable connectivity through Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) and Secure Shell (SSH), increases the perimeter, rendering your critical networks and attached virtual machines more open and harder to manage.
One of the best things about running your VMs in Azure or Azure Stack is you can begin to modernize around your virtual machines (VMs) by taking advantage of the services provided by the cloud.
Customers have been using Azure Stack in a number of different ways. We continue to see Azure Stack used in connected and disconnected scenarios as a platform for building applications to deploy both on-premises as well as in Azure.
At Microsoft Build 2019, we announced the general availability of Azure Shared Image Gallery, making it easier to manage, share, and distribute custom virtual machine (VM) images in Azure.
Elasticity means services can expand and contract on demand. This means Microsoft Azure customers who are on a pay-as-you-go plan will reap the most benefit out of Azure services.
