#Azure and #MSOMS notable updates w7-17


This wee we have a bunch a great new additions to our beloved public cloud solution.

Cross-subscription vnet peering is finally in public preview, this greatly helps in migration projects, especially EA or pay-as-you-go to CSP. Note of warning: the subscriptions must belong to the same tenant, but this is typically not an issue.

Ruby is now supported on Web Apps on Linux, now I want to give it a try with a simple Ruby on Rails deployment.

During the week an interesting post on how to implement guest clustering using Windows Server 2016 and S2D has been published. It is worth a read it is packed of useful templates.
And while you’re at it you can take a look at the SQL team specifications for Failover clusters with SQL

Azure AD B2C gets some new features targeted at:

  • Single-page app (SPA) support
  • Usage reporting APIs
  • Friction-free consumer sign-up i.e. disable email verification

Improvements in Azure security announced, but still not available:


LogAnalytics solution for Nutanix is now in public preview

System Center

Finally we got the nano agent for out good old Operations Manager. It just applies to version 2016 and this is a compelling reason to move to SCOM 2016, obviously if you want to use nano. Unfortunately the agent comes in two packages: the RTM, and the UR1 that must be applied/chained to the RTM bits.
