How to migrate Azure Managed Disk to different subscription and region – Part II

On the previous post I describe what need to do to move Azure Managed Disks between subscriptions and after that between regions (see link HERE). Although I didn’t explore the steps mention to move between regions. Here are the step-by-steps of each stage, mention on the previous post, of how to move the Azure Managed Disk between Azure Regions: 1. Stop the virtual machine from migrating 1. Navigate to the...

Containers on Azure – Part 2

On the previous post (see here), I talked about the concept of Containers, Azure Container Service and Azure Service Fabric. Now that you know the concept and have an idea how to implement it, let see how can you deploy containers in Azure. Azure offers several ways to provision Azure virtual machines that support Docker containers: Install the Docker virtual machine extension. You can either add the extension to an...

Containers on Azure – Part 1

In the last decade, hardware virtualization has drastically changed the IT landscape. One of many consequences of this trend is the emergence of cloud computing. However, a more recent virtualization approach promises to bring even more significant changes to the way you develop, deploy, and manage compute workloads. This approach is based on the concept of containers. These series of posts explain containers and the ways you can implement them...

Differences between the classic and the Azure Resource Manager deployment model

A lot of times I got these questions, where is should create my resources? On the classic portal or on the ARM portal? What is the difference? Is it only the URL? Why if I choose to create a VM on classic within the same region I cannot use my network created on the ARM portal or vice-versa? All these questions are valid, but someone of them are misconception of...

The difference between Azure Virtual Machines and Azure Cloud Services?

Azure offers several compute hosting options for integrating on-premises workloads in Azure.  On a previous post (see here), I described the difference between the both deployment methods, Azure Resource Manager and Azure Service Manager (Classic). On this post, I will focus on the difference between Azure virtual machines and Azure Cloud Services, because they serve as the basis on integration solutions. Azure virtual machines Azure virtual machines provide the greatest...

How to move your workloads to Azure

When integrating your on-premises environment with Azure, you might want to use the lift-and-shift approach to migrate some of your existing workloads. There are several ways to do it. You can use Azure Site Recovery to accomplish that (see here) or use one of common way to implement this approach, by capture the content of disks of physical or virtual machines residing in your datacenter, upload them to Azure storage,...

How to implement Azure Site Recovery

On the previous posts, I did an overview of the Azure Site Recovery service (see here) and talk about the way that I design a disaster recovery solution with ASR (see here). For this post, I want to demonstrate how easy is to implement ASR. Implementing Azure Site Recovery is a relatively involved process. The implementation steps obviously depend on the design, which in turn is determined by the recovery...

How to build a Disaster Recovery solution with Azure Site Recovery

Frequently I heard how to build a disaster recovery solution. When I heard that I always think about ASR. On my last post I talked about Azure Site Recover as an overview of the service (see here). On this post, I would like to explore what I take in consideration when I built an Disaster Recovery solution using ASR. Planning for Azure Site Recovery is highly dependent on the location...

Azure Backup – Part 4 – System Center and Azure Backup

On the first post (see here), I explained how the Azure backup works. On this post, I’m explaining how to integrate Azure Backup with System Center Data Protection Manager. If your environment contains a large number of systems that require protection, you might want to consider implementing Microsoft Azure Backup Server. Alternatively, if you have an existing implementation of System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM), you will likely benefit from...
