During their Microsoft Build 2018 session Making production deployments safe and repeatable using declarative infrastructure and Azure Resource Manager, Vlad Joanovic, and Brendan Burns share best practices for using Azure Resource Manager (ARM) to optimize application deployment agility and ensure compliance across infrastructures. ARM enables you to repeatedly deploy your app and have confidence your resources are deployed in a consistent state.
You define the infrastructure and dependencies for your app in a single declarative template that is flexible enough to use for all of your environments such as test, staging or production. We’ll look at ways that you can create, share and publish both ARM templates, as well as Azure Managed Applications.

Azure Managed Applications build upon ARM templates to enable Managed Service Providers (MSPs), Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), and corporate central IT teams to deliver turnkey solutions through the Azure Marketplace or Service Catalog. These are self-contained and sealed to the consumer, allowing the provider to deliver a higher quality of service.
Security threats increase in volume and sophistication every day. And regardless of your organization’s size or the industry you’re in, Azure Security Center threat detection capabilities, alerts, and recommended fixes can give you the tangible data you need to help protect your cloud resources. Plus, you can monitor your on-premises, hybrid, or cloud environment—Azure, Amazon, or any other public cloud—to get a more complete picture.
In Hybrid Cloud Workload Protection with Azure Security Center, a new course now available on Microsoft Virtual Academy, Yuri Diogenes and Ty Balascio offer an overview of Azure Security Center, including requirements, planning, onboarding, and troubleshooting. Ty and Yuri work with real-world data and share their experience in the industry to show how the threat landscape differs for a cloud or hybrid versus on-premises. And they explore threat detection and response in a lab environment so they can talk you through it.
Check out this detailed demo of using the investigation dashboard to drill down on an incident. You’ll see how to correlate multiple entities that are part of the same attack so you can understand how an attack moves against each host in a system. You’ll learn how to use that information to continue your investigation and pursue closure of your incident response.
Jeff Woolsey,principalprogram manager from the Windows Server team, explains and demos the steps to discover, assess and migrate Windows and Linux virtual machines from VMware to Azure. The new Azure Migrate service helps you find on-premises VMs and apps using a collector appliance, then exposes VM attributes – including utilization, sizing and dependency information – to help you plan your migration.
Azure Site Recovery then provides the tools to replicate discovered and targeted VMs into Azure storage, then allows you to test and move workloads into production. Along the way, Jeff explains how the tools in Azure help you determine costs and take advantage of potential cost savings via the Azure Hybrid Benefit for Windows Server.
In the past two years, we have seen something undeniable happening: a rise in cloud adoption, whether hybrid or full-on cloud migrations. For the System Center Operations Manager Community, we had already created a highly successful free Ping Management Pack, which has been downloaded over 10.000 times.

With the cloud adoption in full swing, we decided to create a useful application to help organizations optimize their cloud environment, cutting costs by enabling users to not only schedule when a VM is turned on or off, but also allowing them to change the resource size of a VM on a schedule.

Azure Managed Applications is a new service provided by Microsoft which allows Managed Service Providers (MSPs), Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), and corporate central IT teams to deliver turnkey solutions through the Azure Marketplace or Service Catalog. So what does that mean for the end-user?
Basically, the end-users deploy these managed applications into their subscriptions, but they don’t have to maintain, update, or service them. Which is a great key advantage of the Azure Managed Applications services! It’s the responsibility of the vendors to manage and support these applications. So as an end-user, you don’t have to invest in building the application specific domain knowledge, which would have been needed to service these applications. You will automatically acquire application updates without having to worry about troubleshooting and diagnosing issues with the application.
At OpsLogix, we’ve developed a Managed Application of our Oracle OMS Collector, however, it’s not yet ready to market. In the video above, Kristian Nese, Senior Program Manager of AzureCAT at Microsoft gives you a short demo of how to use our Oracle OMS Collector as an Azure Managed App during Experts Live Europe 2017.
Ziv Rafalovich joins Scott Hanselman to talk about improvements to the planned maintenance experience in Azure, including better visibility and control of maintenance events that impact virtual machine availability. Learn how to create alerts, discover which virtual machines are scheduled for maintenance, and proactively start the maintenance using the Azure portal, REST API, Azure PowerShell, or Azure CLI.
