Preventing administrative users to change critical network settings in an Azure hub-spoke topology

An Azure hub-spoke topology enables a company to use infrastructure as a service without losing control of the network flow. This is particularly important if you have business users with their own subscription (which I support) and the services in this spoke needs access to on-premises resources via a vpn gateway (e.g. site-2-site vpn).

To prevent the business users from changing the network settings in the prepared spoke subscriptions, it’s necessary to give them the right role in Azure.

Verwenden des OneDrive PowerShell Moduls aus der PowerShell Gallery für den Zugriff auf OneDrive per Kommandozeile

Ich habe ein PowerShell Modul geschrieben, mit dem per Kommandozeile mit OneDrive gearbeitet werden kann. Das Modul verwendet die dokumentiert OneDrive API (https://dev.onedrive.com/README.htm). Wenn PowerShellGet bereits auf dem Rechner installiert ist, lässt sich das OneDrive Modul mit einem Befehl laden und installieren:

Install-Module -Name OneDrive -Scope CurrentUser

Ebenso lässt sich das Modul mit dem gleichen Befehl aktualisieren (bitte -force anhängen). Falls PowerShellGet aktuell nicht vorhanden ist, lässt sich dies hier nachholen: https://www.powershellgallery.com/packages/OneDrive – „Get Started“.

Azure Global Bootcamp 2017

On April 22 the annual Azure Boot Camp event took place worldwide. I was happy to be a part of this important event in 2017. I decided to talk about one of my favorite Azure technologies: Azure OMS Log Analytics. I held my presentation in Lingen in a very pleasant atmosphere at it.emsland. At this point: Thanks to @sql_williamd for the organization 🙂

My topic was “Azure OMS Log Analytics – Big-data-as-a-Service” and the presentation focused on Log Analytics.

Webinar: Full control of the cloud with Azure Operations Management Suite and Log Analytics – security, performance and scalability of solutions

On February 1st I had the chance to give a webinar focused on Azure OMS Log Analytics. Log Analytics is Microsoft’s big-data solution in Azure.

This is the introduction:

OMS log Analytics is „the“ big-data solution by Microsoft in the Azure cloud. The OMS agent uses log Analytics as the storage for the metrics and data of the monitored infrastructures and solutions. The analytics engine enables administrators to evaluate the collected data with predefined and customized dashboards.

Fast overview about your Azure spending with a windows tool for your subscriptions

Between Christmas and New Year’s Eve, I had a couple of days I had some time for hacking. So, I wrote a small windows tool which can display the Azure spending for my subscriptions and notifies me if one amount has changed.

The result is my tool “Azure Spendings”. You can enter up to three accounts. For these accounts Azure Spendings enumerates all tenants and assigned subscriptions. The costs (the same as on portal.azure.com) are displayed.

Use Azure OMS Log Analytics to monitor Custom Applications / Infrastructures: Citrix Workers

Azure OMS offers with Log Analytics a big data analysis cloud service. It comes with an agent to collect different data on Windows and Linux systems. It can also be combined with Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM). The collected data can be visualized by adding solutions from a gallery, searching the log with its own syntax and building custom views. Solutions from the gallery can be: AD Replication Status, Change Tracking and many more.

Create MSOMS Workspace for LogAnalytics Premium plan or change it from Standalone to Premium with PowerShell – Data retention 1 year

I use Microsoft Azure Log Analytics as a big data service. For example, I’m developing an agent for Citrix Worker to collect a mass of performance data for each worker in a farm. Performance data are: Different bandwidth consumption per user, running processes with memory and cpu usages, session data, logon data, etc. The agent uploads these data to Log Analytics and a custom dashboard shows different statistics and allows a capacity management of Citrix farms.
