Implement a file server in Azure without using a single VM

It’s usually quite a chore to manage file servers by using VMs. Migrating between file servers in the cloud, enacting replication with DFS-R, and such would require using redundancy mechanisms. All this makes the implementation of file servers in Azure unnecessarily complex. Well, that ship has finally sailed!

What is Azure Private Link (Preview)?

Bypassing conjunctions with public networks is easier said than done. Especially, if your endpoints are in faraway regions or even have different tenants, keeping the bandwidth high and cybersecurity tight can be an issue. Microsoft introduced Azure Private Link specifically for that reason, allowing users to create private endpoints within their virtual network.

Azure CDN to increase the user experience

Content delivery networks (CDN) cover a set of network servers distributed across farther areas. The idea is to have point-of-presence (POP) servers in edge locations. That way, you can cache your web application content in designated servers to have your users enjoy it at high bandwidth. Azure CDN is one such tool that can help you with that.

AKS, where to start?

Using containers to host software processes or applications is starting to become more of a thing. They have the necessary binary code, executables, configuration files, and libraries but without the OS images. They’re lightweight, portable, have a more consistent operation. One has to start somewhere, and AZK is a great container orchestrator to help you with that.

Sign in to Virtual Machine in Azure using Azure Active Directory Authentication

Online activities using malware and viruses increase exponentially every year. Even the smallest mishaps in cybersecurity policies may result in substantial damage. Therefore, who / how / and the way someone accesses your virtual machines is also important. Fortunately, Microsoft created a tool that allows using Azure RBAC and AD Conditional Access to control all of that. Read the guide by Nicolas Prigent, a Swiss Systems Engineer, to learn how to use Azure Active Directory to sign in to your VMs so that other Azure security tools are involved in the process.

Overview of Microsoft Azure Bastion

We all know that connecting production VMs directly to the Internet via a public IP is a huge concern from a cybersecurity standpoint. Therefore, usually, all critical VMs don’t have public IPs, and they are managed either from a site-to-site VPN or a console VM that holds a public IP. In both cases, managing your Azure VMs is not easy since cybersecurity is a concern.
