    • Add 2016-DataCenter-Server-Core available for Virtual Machine Scale Set Deployments from Portal

      The Microsoft managed list of available images for scale sets currently does not include Windows Server 2016 Core. Providing our own image works but is painful as we must maintain the image.

      Since Windows Server Core images are already managed by Microsoft for IAAS VMs, you should also offer this images for scale sets.

      • Additional Health Probe types for Application Gateway

        Currently the http and https probes require a 200 response.
        This means that publishing of Web Application Proxy is not supported.
        Please add additional Health Probes so it's easier to securely publish WAP servers.

        • Autoscale Web App take into account the number of instances running

          The current feature of auto scaling is on based on one metric like CPU or memory.

          I would like to have a matrix with 2 metrics in it. CPU or Memory along with the number of instances running at that moment.

          This will enable me to logical downscale the instances. For example:

          2 -> 1 instances: at < 30% CPU, which results in around 60% CPU on 1 instance

          For
          4 -> 3 instances: at < 45% CPU, which also results in around 60% CPU on 3 instances.

          For now when a day of work starts with 1 instance and…

              Asus Chromebook Flip Updated With New Processor, USB Type-C Ports at Computex 2017

              It seems like Asus has quietly updated the Chromebook Flip as a new version of the portable was spotted at Computex 2017 event in Taipei. While the company has reportedly retained the design of the original Chromebook Flip, which was released back in 2015, it has updated the product with more capable processors and added USB Type-C ports to make it future-proof.

              The new variant, termed as Asus Chromebook Flip C101, was spotted first by Roland Quandt from WinFuture and retains the same design as well as…

              • Authentication support for application gateway

                For lift & shift of legacy systems, application gateway is very useful as we have different kinds of backends (VMs, service fabric, other PaaS services, etc.). The only missing capability is authentication, so we have to implement and configure authentication in various services, which is a big overhead. Otherwise, we have to give up application gateway but set up Nginx VMs instead.

                I have also looked at Azure API Gateway, but it seems to be too specialized for public APIs but our services also service static contents and ever-changing private APIs without swagger definition.

                • Azure CosmosDB is too expensive for small but multiple collections

                  Currently using on-prem MongoDB (on Linux) and wish to move to Azure, but I find CosmosDB is too expensive for small but multiple (MongoDB)collections because it seems that a minimum of 400 RRU's/per second will be charged for each collection.

                  The terminology used on the pricing web pages is somewhat unclear though and I am not sure if the pricing for the minimum of 400 RRU's/second applies to partitions or collection (or if these terms are in fact identical semantically)

                    Outlook shows errors if there is any change in rule or settings or interference in its file structure. If it is unable to send or receive messages then you can check the rules with which it is configured from Manage rules & Alert option. Some it shows error Outlook not responding or stop working. To solve this error, try to run Outlook in Safe mode, close any dialog box asking for its permission, check if other services are not restricting it. These issues make working of Outlook abnormal.

                    • Way to monitor Web App connections regardless of state

                      I had an issue where my web app was unable to open new connections because too many were open. The metrics-per-instance reports for monitoring connections only show open and close-wait state connections. For whatever reason the connections impacting my app were in another state and hence were not shown.

                      I believe I have resolved my issue, but I cannot check on the health of the app without asking an Azure support technician to assist.

                      It can also be misleading when troubleshooting to see 80 connections in the report, when there are actually 3500 in use.

                      Thanks!

                        • Reducing Azure subscription cost for new learners and students

                          When I tried few hands on labs first time in Azure, I got $133 bill for the first month itself because I didn't know that we have to deallocate or delete the sample instances because it's being charged daily. So, please provide these tips in Hands on Labs documents to save Azure subscription cost mainly to retain new learners and students. Otherwise people will move out from Azure subscriptions as can't afford huge cost on monthly basis

                          • Application Gateway instances support weak TLS cipher

                            We are using azure app services behind an Application Gateway WAF with end-to-end SSL.

                            The Azure App Services no longer support this weak TLS 1.0, 1.1, 1.2 cipher:
                            TLS_RSA_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA (0xa) WEAK

                            If you pen test a site behind an Application Gateway, the instances will still support this weak cipher.

                            Here's the link of the Azure App Services removing that cipher.
