I try to tweet something useful to know about Azure each day as a tip with my twitter account AzureBarry. To give people (and myself) an overview of these tips, I will post a weekly summary of the tips.
Why? Because I hope this helps people to create amazing solutions using the cloud. Here goes:
- The temporary disk in Azure VMs (not the OS disk) is transient and will lose all data when the VM releases its resources.
- Each Azure Storage account is limited to 20,000 IOPS and 500 TB of storage.
- Azure storage page blobs can store up to 1 TB of data and are optimized for read/write operations.
- See processes and more of the machine(s) your Azure App Service is running on through Kudu. Go to https://t.co/OIaEhGv8ye
- You can get Azure VM images for Linux and FreeBSD from the VM depot: https://t.co/6eLJvdYY1U
- Autoscaling for Azure VMs the first time: it will only kick in after an hour as it uses the average metric value of the past hour.
- In Azure, there are 3 SQL Azure tiers and they have their own size limit: Basic: 2GB, Standard: 250GB, Premium: 500GB
- See the comprehensive list of Azure service here: http://t.co/hbaAdhFl1H
