#Azure notable updates week 40/19

Azure Data Share service has added support for snapshot-based sharing of Azure SQL Database and SQL Data Warehouse based data. Azure Data Share is a service aimed at sharing snapshots of your data with other organizations but can be used to share snapshots of your data between teams inside your organization without exposing the entire dataset. For SQL and SQL DW you get the granularity of sharing tables or views. This integration is in preview.

Azure Windows Virtual Desktop is now GA worldwide. As a side benefit, if you still have Apps that only run on Windows 7, you can use Azure VD to extended Windows 7 support until January 2023. If you missed this piece of information, Windows 7 extended support will end on January 2020.

I already touched the new reserved capacity pricing for Azure Monitor Log Analytics in this post, anyway in case you missed it, you can now reserve capacity for LA and get some savings, you can start reserving capacity from November 1st.

You can now directly upload your VHD do Azure Managed disks without the hassle of converting them. The direct-upload is in preview.

Azure Advisor now reports recommendations for Azure Cosmos DB. Speaking of Cosmos DB, integrated Jupyter notebooks are now generally available.

You can now use an Azure Standard Load Balancer in Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), previously you could only use basic load balancers.
