Azure Storage | Static Web Site

Azure Storage | Static Web Site Το Microsoft Azure ανακοίνωσε την δυνατότητα να φιλοξενεί στατικές ιστοσελίδες απευθείας στο Blob Storage, με το κόστος του Blob Storage! Τι σημαίνει αυτό? Για 1 GB χώρο και 100000 views το κόστος είναι περίπου 0,05 ευρώ το μήνα! Στις στατικές ιστοσελίδες μπορούμε επίσης εκτός από στατικό περιεχόμενο να έχουμε και CLient Side Scripting οπως JavaScript αλλά όχι Server Side Scripting. Επίσης μπορούμε να δώσουμε και μια Custom σελίδα που θα γυρίζει αντί για 404. Μπορ

Azure Blob Storage… Recycle Bin!!!!!!!

Azure App Service, get data from on-premises databases securely

Azure App Service, get data from on-premises databases securely There are many scenarios where we want to have the Web Application on the Cloud but on the other hand, due to various limitations, the database stays on-premises. Azure has a service, called Azure Hybrid Connections, that allows the Web App to connect to on-premises databases, using internal IP address or the database server host name, without a complex VPN setup.

Ασφάλισε την Azure SQL Database μέσα σε ένα VNET χρησιμοποιώντας service endpoints

Για πολλούς, ένα πρόβλημα στο να χρησιμοποιήσουν την Azure SQL, είναι η δημόσια πρόσβαση. Μετά τα τελευταία Azure updates μπορούμε να χρησιμοποιήσουμε τα service endpoints ώστε να ασφαλίσουμε την Azure SQL μέσα σε ένα VNET. Ας ξεκινήσουμε λοιπόν να βάλουμε την Azure SQL μέσα σε ένα VNET. Ανοίγουμε το Azure Portal και ξεκινάμε να δημιουργήσουμε ένα VNET. Στο τέλος της σελίδας δημιουργίας έχει προστεθεί μια νέα επιλογή που λέγετε service endpoints. Το ενεργοποιούμε και επιλέγουμε το Microsoft.Sql.
