  • How long did it take you to start learning a course to getting your certs?
    by /u/undertheinfluenceof (Microsoft Azure Certifications) on May 20, 2022 at 3:27 pm

    Just out of total curiosity, how long did it take any of you to begin studying for, say, AZ-900 to passing the final exam? (Does not have to be AZ-900, but any of your certs.) I am totally curious about time-frames and what a realistic expectation it should take. I also know timelines will vary depending on experience. submitted by /u/undertheinfluenceof [link] [comments]

  • How to create labs for AZ-104?
    by /u/Real_Lemon8789 (Microsoft Azure Certifications) on May 20, 2022 at 3:25 pm

    I have an Azure Developer tenant that includes Microsoft licensing, but does not include any subscription credits. I had opened a free Azure trial last year with a different tenant and never used it. So, the $200 subscription credit expired and got wasted in the first 30 days. Is there another way to get a 30 day trial of subscription credits and apply it to the developer tenant I have now or else create a separate tenant with $200 credit to use for AZ-104 test prep? I was also planning to use GitHub labs related to AZ-104, but I don’t understand how to use that. I went to the GitHub page and I just see links on the page to a bunch of files. I don’t see any explanation of what to do with all those file links. submitted by /u/Real_Lemon8789 [link] [comments]

  • Cert suggestions?
    by /u/SENDMEYOURROBOTDICKS (Microsoft Azure Certifications) on May 20, 2022 at 8:22 am

    Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone could suggest which certs i should try to tackle after getting AZ-900. A bit about myself: I have about 8 years of experience as a support engineer with mostly on-premises experience with Windows Servers, Microsoft Exchange. I've had some entry-level experience with networking and i haven't done much automation yet. I'm planning to fill that gap in and start using Powershell, Python and move towards a role that resembles an SRE. Is it worth getting the AZ-104 certification, or should i move directly towards AZ-204 and AZ-400? submitted by /u/SENDMEYOURROBOTDICKS [link] [comments]

  • Passed AZ-900 at a Pearson Vue center
    by /u/gotopune (Microsoft Azure Certifications) on May 20, 2022 at 3:57 am

    Today was my first attempt at AZ-900 and I passed (scores 805). I took the test at a Pearson Vue center because it was under a mile away from my place, so I figured why not 😉 A few things to note- I prepared using the material on MS website. I also had access to ESI portal (from work), and I took the practice test there. I did not use any YouTube material. I don’t have a lot of hands on experience but in my prep test I noticed one question had a screenshot of the Azure portal and asked us to identify what one needs to select to perform an action. Therefore, I went through the Azure portal and studied the names of each of the icons. Sure enough I got 2 questions in the test, so that prep helped. I read here on this sub that the exam had changed in May. I didn’t know what changed and I can’t tell you if I noticed something. But there sure was an option to take a break. The condition specified that after we take a break, we’re not allowed to go back to any of the questions we’ve answered already. Hope this helps people looking to take the test soon. Please definitely go through the Microsoft learning portal and get familiar with some of the options on Azure portal. submitted by /u/gotopune [link] [comments]

  • AZ-104 Skillcertpro Question Confusion.
    by /u/Visual_Classic_7459 (Microsoft Azure Certifications) on May 20, 2022 at 12:59 am

    Hey guys, so I am currently studying for az-104 and i have come across what I think are conflicting questions but I think one of them is apart of a much larger question as it pertains to SLA availability and in one picture the question only has to do with the scale set where as the other you see 2 questions with one talking about a scale set and the other talking about an availability set. Please tell me if the correct answers are actually correct because I have done some research but cant find a concrete answer. Also the reason I say " I think one of them is apart of a much larger question" is because I have now taken the az-104 exam twice and I noticed that questions like this tend to be a two in one deal with dropdown boxes with the possible answers. Please tell me if I am wrong in any and everything I have said. Thanks. https://preview.redd.it/4u7av0c65j091.jpg?width=1186&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=2ebab588a854e4ef01963a7ed64d503a3d7708d3 https://preview.redd.it/lex4s9c65j091.jpg?width=899&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=4e7910d75423fed558730fe57bab102e836f2ebd submitted by /u/Visual_Classic_7459 [link] [comments]

  • How Azure Certificate helped you in growing career?
    by /u/licedey (Microsoft Azure Certifications) on May 18, 2022 at 6:18 pm

    You may know me as an author of Learn Azure project. I am working on this project during last 1.5 years. The idea was born from my own needs. When I prepared for AZ-900, then a lot of time I had to be outside my desk. So, I prepared through phone using Whizzlabs and it was inconvenient that time. I decided to develop mobile app that will close this need. As download statistics says, I am not the only one who has interest in such app. Since release of v1.0 there are 50k downloads of the app for iOS/Android together. And all that time I didn't ask users of how Azure certification are helps them in growing their career. As Microsoft's certification ad says that there may be such benefits compared to peers w/o certificate: Salary increase Receive a raise or promotion Skills and quality of their work improve Is it truth? I raise this discussion to understand of how the specific Azure certificate helped you on job seeking or current job. And then, will focus on what is really needed for IT-specialists that has desire to become Azure certified. submitted by /u/licedey [link] [comments]

  • What are the best training courses and practice exams for Azure Fundamentals (AZ-900)
    by /u/hitfan (Microsoft Azure Certifications) on May 18, 2022 at 1:45 pm

    My employer encourages its employees to get certified as much as possible. I recently passed these AWS certifications: Cloud Practitioner Developer Associate SysOps Associate DevOps Professional I used courses and practice exams by Neal Davis for the first 3 and then I used Stephane Maarek’s course for DevOps and Jon Bonso’s practice exams for DevOps. All of these were excellent resources and I like the fact that they gave you a list of documents that you needed to read as well as hands-on labs. The curriculum was laid out in their entirety and I just took some time every day to study until I was finished and then I crammed using my own study notes and memorizing as many practice exam questions as possible. That worked well enough for the first 3, but the DevOps Pro exam was completely different than the practice exams in terms of sentence structure and terminology but thankfully, I had enough understanding of the material to also pass that exam. Are there highly recommended classes and practice exams that are recommended by the Azure community? I want to start with the very beginning with fundamentals and I will decide later if I want to get the more advanced ones. submitted by /u/hitfan [link] [comments]

  • Az-204 Plural Sight + Practice Exam Recommendations.
    by /u/TrickyKnotCommittee (Microsoft Azure Certifications) on May 16, 2022 at 10:49 am

    I'm thinking of doing the Az-204 exam having not previously done any certs before. I'm a developer with ten years experience and roughly 6 months on Azure. Having gone through Scott Duffy's course and working through the learning path on the microsoft website, I decided to mix things up by trying the practice exams on Pluralsight I have access to through work. Are these actually indicative of the exam questions you'll get? So many of them seem to be things not at all covered by either of those learning paths.

  • SC-100 Learning Path
    by /u/Real_Lemon8789 (Microsoft Azure Certifications) on May 16, 2022 at 1:32 am

    I don't see any dedicated training, but this Microsoft link is pointing you to complete 3 AZ-500 modules and 3 SC-200 modules: Exam SC-100: Microsoft Cybersecurity Architect (beta) - Learn | Microsoft Docs Does anyone agree or disagree that this is adequate preparation for the exam? If so, if you have recently passed both AZ-500 and SC-200 and remember the material, that means you should be able pass SC-100 without further study. I have already passed SC-300 and 400. So, I am eligible to get SC-100 certification if I pass the exam after it goes past Beta stage. I was thinking of taking the SC-200 exam, but I would rather go with SC-100 Expert exam instead of getting yet another certification at the Associate level. Is a dedicated Learn module with updated 2022 material expected when the exam goes to general availability? submitted by /u/Real_Lemon8789 [link] [comments]

  • Is there a resource with each Azure services listed with a short definition?
    by /u/Mariuszowicz (Microsoft Azure Certifications) on May 15, 2022 at 7:06 pm

    Is there a resource where someone has put all (or at least many) of the services and their named features with a short definition of each and maybe what is a best scenario as when should it be used? Even though I work with Azure for couple of years, sometimes I get different services mixed up with one another, especially the ones that I never had a chance to use in my work. It also doesn't help that Microsoft is changing the naming of some from time to time. I'm not looking for a marketing phrases like here: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/services/,more like something described most uniquely from their own experience with least words. Examples: Azure Functions - the first go-to when you want to create an API or just a stateless single function cheaply with optional authentication; many triggers available, such as: HTTP request, event in storage, event in DB, event from other Azure service, or can be run on schedule. Azure Durable Functions - a stateful extension to Azure Functions that lets you chain or fan-out/fan-in functions using an orchestrator function; also suitable for long-running operations. Azure Blob Storage - the first go-to for storing non-tabular chunks of data, regardless of size. Privileged Identity Management (PIM) - a service in Azure Active Directory for controlling and monitoring access to high-privileged accounts. Azure Container Registry (ACR) - a private registry service for building, storing, and managing container images. submitted by /u/Mariuszowicz [link] [comments]

  • How we’re keeping up with the increasing demand for the Google Workspace Administrator role
    by (Training & Certifications) on April 29, 2022 at 4:00 pm

    We’ve rebranded the Professional Collaboration Engineer Certification to the Professional Google Workspace Administrator Certification and updated the learning path. To mark the moment, we sat down with Erik Geerdink from SADA to talk about how the Google Workspace Administrator role and demand for this skill set has changed over the years. Erik is a Deployment Engineer and Pod Lead. He holds a Professional Google Workspace Administrator Certificationand has worked with Google Workspace for more than six years.What was it like starting out as a Google Workspace Administrator?When I first started, I was doing Google Workspace Support as a Level 2 Administrator. At that time, there were fewer admin controls for Google Workspace. There were calendar issues, some mail routing issues, maybe a little bit of data loss prevention (DLP), but that was about it.About 5 years ago, I transferred into Google Deployment and really got to see all that went on with deploying Google Workspace and troubleshooting advanced issues. Since then, what you can accomplish in the admin console has really taken off. There’s still Gmail and Calendar configurations, but the security posture that Google offers now—they’ve really upped their game. The extent of DLP isn’t just Gmail and Drive anymore; it extends into Chat. And we’re doing a lot of Context-Aware Access to make sure users only have as much access as IT compliance allows in our deployments. Calendar interop, which allows users in different systems to see availability, has been a big area of focus as well.How has the Google Workspace Administrator role changed over the last few years? It used to be that you were a systems admin who also took care of the Google portion as well. But with Google Workspace often being the entry point to Google Cloud, we’ve had to become more knowledgeable about the platform as a whole. Now, we not only do training with Google Workspace admins for our projects, we also talk to their Google Cloud counterparts as well.Google Workspace is changing all the time, and the weekly updates that Google sends out are great. As an engineering team, every week on Wednesday, we review each Google Workspace update that’s come out to understand how they affect us, our clients, and our upcoming projects. There’s a lot to it. It’s not just a little admin role anymore. It’s a strategic technology role.What motivated you to get Google Cloud Certified?I spent the first 15 years of my career doing cold server room roles, and I knew I had to get cloudy. I wanted to work with Google, and it was a no-brainer given the organization’s reputation for innovation. I knew this certification exam was the one to get me in the door. The Professional Google Workspace Administrator certification was required to level up as an administrator and to make sure our business kept getting the most out of Google Workspace. How has the demand for certified Google Workspace Admins changed recently? Demand has absolutely gone up. We are growing so much, and we need more professionals with this certification. It’s required for all of our new hires. When I see a candidate that already has the certification, they go to the top of the list. I’ll skip all the other resumes to find someone who has this experience. We’re searching globally—not just in North America—to find the right people to fill this strategic role.Explore the new learning pathIn order to keep up with the changing demands of this role, we’ve rebranded the Professional Collaboration Engineer Certification to the Professional Google Workspace Administrator Certification and updated the learning path. The learning path now aligns with the improved admin console. We’ve replaced the readings with videos for a better learning experience: in total, we added 17 new videos across 5 courses to match new features and functionality. Earn the Professional Google Workspace Administrator Certification to distinguish yourself among your peers and showcase your skills.Related ArticleUnlock collaboration with Google Workspace EssentialsIntroducing Google Workspace Essentials Starter, a no-cost offering to bring modern collaboration to work.Read Article

  • Train your organization on Google Cloud Skills Boost
    by (Training & Certifications) on April 7, 2022 at 1:00 pm

    Enterprises are moving to cloud computing at an accelerated pace, estimating that 85% of enterprises will adopt a cloud first principle by 2025 (Gartner®, Gartner says Cloud will be the Centerpiece of the New Digital Experience, Laurence Goasduff, November 10, 2021). There are countless reasons why enterprises are moving to the cloud - from reduced IT costs and increased scalability, to improved security and efficiency. However this rapid change has presented a challenge - how will organizations build the skills they need to accelerate cloud adoption within their organization? The answer is comprehensive training. We commissioned IDC in March 2022 , an independent market intelligence firm, to write a white paper that studied the impact of comprehensive training and certification on cloud adoption. When organizations are trained they see:Significantly greater improvement in top business priorities - 133% greater improvement on employee retention and 56% greater improvement in customer experience scoresAccelerated cloud adoption, reduced time to value, and greater ROI - trained organizations are 10X more likely to implement cloud in 2 yearsGreater performance improvements - in areas like leveraging data analytics, protecting data, and jumpstarting innovationIDC White Paper, sponsored by Google Cloud Learning: "To Maximize Your Cloud Benefits, Maximize Training" - Doc #US48867222, March 2022To learn more, download the white paper.Build Team Skills in Google Cloud Skills Boost Coupling the research above with our commitment to equip more than 40 million people with cloud skills, we are excited to provide business organizations with a comprehensive platform to help address their teams’ cloud skilling needs.

  • Accelerating Government Compliance with Google Cloud’s Professional Service Organization
    by (Training & Certifications) on March 21, 2022 at 5:00 pm

    Did you know that by 2025, enterprise IT spending on public cloud computing will overtake traditional IT spending? In fact, 51% of IT spend in application software, infrastructure software, business process services, and system infrastructure will transition to the public cloud, compared to 41% in 20221.. As enterprises continue to rapidly shift to the cloud, government agencies must prioritize and accelerate security and compliance implementation. In May 2021, the White House issued an Executive Order requiring US Federal agencies to accelerate cloud adoption, embrace security best practices, develop plans to implement Zero Trust architectures, and map implementation frameworks to FedRAMP. The Administration’s focus on secure cloud adoption marks a critical shift to prioritizing cybersecurity at scale. Google Cloud’s Public Sector Professional Services Organization (PSO) has committed to helping customers meet security and compliance requirements in the cloud through specialized consulting engagements. Accelerating Authority to Operate (ATO)The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) was established in 2011 as a government-wide program that promotes the adoption of secure cloud services across the federal government. FedRAMP provides a standardized approach to security and risk assessment for cloud technologies and federal agencies. US Federal agencies are required to utilize and implement FedRAMP cloud service offerings as part of the “Cloud First” federal cloud computing strategy.While Google Cloud provides a FedRAMP-authorized cloud services platform and a robust catalog of FedRAMP-approved products and services (92 services and counting), customers are still tasked with achieving Agency ATO for the products and services they use, and Google Cloud provides many resources to assist customers with this journey. Google Cloud’s FedRAMP package can be accessed by completing the FedRAMP Package Access Request Form and submitting it to info@fedramp.gov. Additionally, customers can use Google’s NIST 800-53 ATO Accelerator as a starting point for documenting control implementation. Finally, Google Cloud’s Public Sector PSO offers the following strategic consulting engagements to help customers streamline the Agency ATO process.Cloud Discover: FedRAMP is a six-week interactive workshop to support customers that are just getting started with the ATO process on Google Cloud. Customers are educated on FedRAMP fundamentals, Google’s security and compliance posture, and how to approach ATO on Google Cloud. Through deep-dive interviews and design sessions, PSO helps customers craft an actionable ATO plan, assess FedRAMP readiness, and develop a conceptual ATO boundary. This engagement helps organizations establish a clear understanding and roadmap for FedRAMP ATO on Google Cloud.FedRAMP Security Review is a ten to twelve week engagement that aids customers in FedRAMP operational readiness. PSO consultants perform detailed FedRAMP architecture reviews to identify potential gaps in NIST 800-53 security control implementation and Google Cloud secure architecture best practices. Findings from the security reviews are shared with the customer along with configuration guidance and recommendations. This engagement helps organizations prepare for the third-party or independent security assessment that is required for FedRAMP ATO.Cloud Deploy: FedRAMP is a multi-month engagement designed to help customers document the details of their FedRAMP System Security Plan (SSP) and corresponding NIST 800-53 security controls, in preparation for Agency ATO on Google Cloud at FedRAMP Low, Moderate, or High. PSO collaborates with customers to develop a detailed technical infrastructure design document and security control matrix capturing evidence of the FedRAMP system architecture, security control implementation, data flows and system components. PSO can also partner with a third-party assessment organization (3PAO) or an independent assessor (IA) to support customer efforts for FedRAMP security assessment. This engagement helps customer system owners prepare for Agency ATO assessment and package submission.Developing a Zero Trust StrategyIn addition to providing FedRAMP enablement, Public Sector PSO has partnered with the Google Cloud Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) team to assist organizations with developing a zero trust architecture and strategy.Zero Trust Foundations is a seven-week engagement co-delivered by Google Cloud’s CISO and PSO teams. CISO and PSO educate customers on zero trust fundamentals, Google’s journey to zero trust through BeyondCorp, and defense in depth best practices. The CISO team walks customers through a Zero Trust Assessment (ZTA) to understand the organization’s current security posture and maturity. Insights from the ZTA enable the CISO team to work with the customer to identify an ideal first-mover workload for zero trust adoption. Following the CISO ZTA, PSO facilitates a deep-dive Zero Trust Workshop (ZTW), collaborating with key customer stakeholders to develop a NIST 800-207 aligned, cloud-agnostic zero trust architecture for the identified first-mover workload. The zero trust architecture is part of a comprehensive zero trust strategy deliverable that is based on focus areas called out in the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Federal Zero Trust Strategy released January 2022. Scaling Secure Cloud Adoption with PSOPublic Sector PSO enables customer success by sharing our technical expertise, providing cloud strategy, implementation guidance, training and enablement using our proven methodology. As enterprise IT, operations, and organizational models continue to evolve, our goal is to help government agencies accelerate their security and compliance journeys in the cloud.  To learn more about the work we are doing with the federal government, visit cloud.google.com/solutions/federal-government. 1 Gartner Says More Than Half of Enterprise IT Spending in Key Market Segments Will Shift to the Cloud by 2025

  • Unified data and ML: 5 ways to use BigQuery and Vertex AI together
    by (Training & Certifications) on February 9, 2022 at 4:00 pm

    Are you storing your data in BigQuery and interested in using that data to train and deploy models? Or maybe you’re already building ML workflows in Vertex AI, but looking to do more complex analysis of your model’s predictions? In this post, we’ll show you five integrations between Vertex AI and BigQuery, so you can store and ingest your data; build, train and deploy your ML models; and manage models at scale with built-in MLOps, all within one platform. Let’s get started!April 2022 update: You can now register and manage BigQuery ML models with Vertex AI Model Registry, a central repository to manage and govern the lifecycle of your ML models. This enables you to easily deploy your BigQuery ML models to Vertex AI for real time predictions. Learn more in this video about “ML Ops in BigQuery using Vertex AI.”Import BigQuery data into Vertex AIIf you’re using Google Cloud, chances are you have some data stored in BigQuery. When you’re ready to use this data to train a machine learning model, you can upload your BigQuery data directly into Vertex AI with a few steps in the console:You can also do this with the Vertex AI SDK:code_block[StructValue([(u'code', u'from google.cloud import aiplatform\r\n\r\ndataset = aiplatform.TabularDataset.create(\r\n display_name="my-tabular-dataset",\r\n bq_source="bq://project.dataset.table_name",\r\n)'), (u'language', u'')])]Notice that you didn’t need to export our BigQuery data and re-import it into Vertex AI. Thanks to this integration, you can seamlessly connect your BigQuery data to Vertex AI without moving your data from the cloud.Access BigQuery public datasets This dataset integration between Vertex AI and BigQuery means that in addition to connecting your company’s own BigQuery datasets to Vertex AI, you can also utilize the 200+ publicly available datasets in BigQuery to train your own ML models. BigQuery’s public datasets cover a range of topics, including geographic, census, weather, sports, programming, healthcare, news, and more. You can use this data on its own to experiment with training models in Vertex AI, or to augment your existing data. For example, maybe you’re building a demand forecasting model and find that weather impacts demand for your product; you can join BigQuery’s public weather dataset with your organization’s sales data to train your forecasting model in Vertex AI.Below, you’ll see an example of importing the public weather data from last year to train a weather forecasting model:Accessing BigQuery data from Vertex AI Workbench notebooksData scientists often work in a notebook environment to do exploratory data analysis, create visualizations, and perform feature engineering. Within a managed Workbench notebook instance in Vertex AI, you can directly access your BigQuery data with a SQL query, or download it as a Pandas Dataframe for analysis in Python.Below, you’ll see how you can run a SQL query on a public London bikeshare dataset, then download the results of that query as a Pandas Dataframe to use in my notebook:Analyze test prediction data in BigQueryThat covers how to use BigQuery data for training models in Vertex AI. Next, we’ll look at integrations between Vertex AI and BigQuery for exporting model predictions. When you train a model in Vertex AI using AutoML, Vertex AI will split your data into training, test, and validation sets, and evaluate how your model performs on the test data. You also have the option to export your model’s test predictions to BigQuery so you can analyze them in more detail:Then, when training completes, you can examine your test data and run queries on test predictions. This can help determine areas where your model didn’t perform as well, so you can take steps to improve your data next time you train your model.Export Vertex AI batch prediction resultsWhen you have a trained model that you’re ready to use in production, there are a few options for getting predictions on that model with Vertex AI:Deploy your model to an endpoint for online predictionExport your model assets for on-device predictionRun a batch prediction job on your modelFor cases in which you have a large number of examples you’d like to send to your model for prediction, and in which latency is less of a concern, batch prediction is a great choice. When creating a batch prediction in Vertex AI, you can specify a BigQuery table as the source and destination for your prediction job: this means you’ll have one BigQuery table with the input data you want to get predictions on, and Vertex AI will write the results of your predictions to a separate BigQuery table.With these integrations, you can access BigQuery data, and build and train models. From there Vertex AI helps you:Take these models into production Automate the repeatability of your model with managed pipelines Manage your models performance and reliability over timeTrack lineage and artifacts of your models for easy-to-manage governance Apply explainability to evaluate feature attributions What’s Next?Ready to start using your BigQuery data for model training and prediction in Vertex AI?

  • Let’s have a chat about using dumps
    by /u/whooyeah (Microsoft Azure Certifications) on January 31, 2022 at 9:49 pm

    This keeps coming up recently so it’s important we have a sticky chat about it that everyone can see. Dumps are essentially cheating. They go against what the exams were designed to do in teaching you azure skills. For this reason they are also against the terms of service from Microsoft for taking the exam. It’s annoying as a professional because you will be in a job interview and hear the hiring manager say things like “MCP exams are worthless because everyone just uses dumps”. Which is heart breaking when you have spent so much time studying the subject knowledge and validating your skills with the exam. As a hiring manager it is annoying because I’ve interviewed candidates in the past with an MCSD and it was clear they had no usable information because they cheated with dumps. You will notice in the side bar rule 1. Breaking this will result in a ban. submitted by /u/whooyeah [link] [comments]

  • Technical Training Made Easy and Accessible, the Google Cloud way
    by (Training & Certifications) on January 14, 2022 at 12:40 pm

    Cloud engineers face a constant barrage of new cloud services, products, and innovations. By late 2021, Google Cloud alone had released thousands of new features across hundreds of services. Couple this with other technologies and service releases, and it quickly becomes a herculean task for engineers to navigate, consume, and stay current on the ever changing technology landscape. We have heard from engineers this often leads to anxiety and frustration as engineers struggle to keep up. They are faced with a plethora of training options but often lack the time and funding. Google Cloud has reinvigorated technical training to make it more informative and applicable to public sector customers and partners. We aim to maximize your training experience so you can get targeted training when you need it. The Google Cloud Public Sector Technical Learning Series addresses customer feedback and provides fun and practical training. Sessions are currently running every two weeks. “Short and sweet” technical topics geared to subjects you care aboutGeneric training doesn't always resonate with public sector technologists. Our new curriculum targets specific public sector use cases, is delivered by customer engineers, and can be accomplished in less than two hours.  This means participants can apply the learnings directly to real-life challenges quickly. Easy to find, easy to enroll Training opportunities should always be at your fingertips. Our automated training platform will ensure that you only need to enroll once. The system will automatically notify you of upcoming sessions so you can plan in advance and at your convenience. Sessions will be offered on a recurring basis to meet the needs of your organization.Fun and engagingTypical training sessions often include a sea of glazed eyes, unresponsive to basic prompts, falling asleep at our desks, we have all been there. But it doesn't have to be this way. Our goal is to infuse Google culture into our training through interactive exchanges and tangible rewards to keep participants inspired and engaged.Traditional technology training doesn’t always help you navigate the nuts and bolts of how to effectively introduce a product into an organization. But we know that technology doesn’t operate in isolation; it supports and becomes part of a living organism, managed by humans and confined by other components of an organization’s structure (e.g. existing systems or decentralized business units). Part of a larger community of like-minded engineersLearning with - and from - a community of peers is one way to overcome the challenges and complexities of applying new technology within a complex organization. We created the Public Sector Connect community for this very reason. It is one example of how we surface best practices for public sector innovators. During weekly “Coffee Hours” and working sessions, our community members share their journey and lessons learned with each other. We know that innovation evolves through iteration and diverse perspectives, and Public Sector Connect is committed to helping surface critical challenges and solutions, and connecting those who are solving similar problems. Join the community today.

  • Google Cloud doubles-down on ecosystem in 2022 to meet customer demand
    by (Training & Certifications) on January 11, 2022 at 3:00 pm

    Google Cloud has been a partner-focused business from day one. As we reflect on 2021 and look forward to what’s ahead, I want to say “thank you” to our ecosystem for all of the amazing innovations and services you provided our mutual customers over the last year. In 2021, we faced unprecedented demand from businesses as they turned to the cloud to digitally transform their organizations. This surge in cloud deployments meant we increasingly turned to our ecosystem to help customers create customized implementations with our systems integrators (SIs), build packaged solutions with our independent software vendors (ISVs), or coach employees how to best use new cloud technologies with our consulting and training firms.To continue meeting growing customer demand in 2022 and beyond, I am pleased to share that we are bringing together our ecosystem and channel sales teams into a single partner organization to bring a more streamlined go-to-market approach for our partners and customers. In support of this change, we plan to more than double our spend in support of our partner ecosystem over the next few years, including rolling out increased co-innovation resources for partners, more incentives and co-marketing funds, and a larger commitment to training and enablement—all with a goal of continuing our joint momentum in the market.Providing leads and new go-to-market programs for consulting partnersThe need for highly-skilled partners to accelerate digital transformation for customers has never been greater, and our ecosystem of services partners continues to gain tremendous opportunities to deliver high-value implementation and professional services, industry solutions, and digital transformation expertise. In 2022, we are investing in our SIs by:Moving to a partner-led, partner-delivered approach for professional services needed by our customers, particularly through expanded work with partners. This will include new programs for lead generation and lead sharing with our SI partners.Increasing our investment with SIs in deploying go-to-market programs for industry-specific SI solutions, as well as creating more pre-integrated industry ISV and Google Cloud AI solutions together with our SI partners.Accelerating critical training, specialization, and certification programs in support of our goal of training 40 million new people on Google Cloud. This includes new programs for experienced practitioners, and a hybrid learning modality that combines online and in-person learning supported by Google mentors. Accelerating growth for ISV partners with more resourcesIn 2021, our ISV partners helped build unique integrations with Google Cloud capabilities in AI, ML, data, analytics, and security for our mutual customers. In fact, our marketplace third-party transaction value was up more than 500% YoY from 2020 (Q1-Q3). In 2022, we are deepening our commitment to our ISV partners’ success by:Making significant investments in new Google Cloud Marketplace functionality, including adding new technical resources that will help accelerate how ISVs distribute their apps and solutions. Coupled with this, we’re also lowering the Marketplace rate to 3% for eligible solutions, helping drive more adoption with customers. Expanding our regional sales and technical teams who are dedicated to supporting ISVs, and at the same time increasing market development funds (MDF) to drive further sales growth for our ISVs.Dedicating additional technical resources to help ISVs move to more modern SaaS delivery models, as well as to optimize and supercharge their apps for their customers by leveraging Google Cloud technologies.Creating new monetization models for ISVs using Google Distributed Cloud to deliver products across hybrid environments, multiple clouds, and at the network edge. ISVs will be able to build industry-specific 5G and edge solutions leveraging our ecosystem of telecommunication providers and 140+ Google network edge locations.Increasing funds for ISVs to accelerate customer cloud migrations by offsetting infrastructure costs during migration (ISV Cloud Acceleration Program).Launching new program incentives to drive a thriving channelSince the launch of our Partner Advantage program, we have increased funds for our channel partners tenfold. In 2021, to extend this momentum, we expanded our incentive portfolio for resellers to support their long-term growth and profitability. In 2022, we are increasing our investment in partner programs even further, including:Significantly expanding incentives to reward partners who source and grow customer engagements, and for those who deliver exceptional customer experiences and critical implementation services.Evolving to industry-standard compensation plans for our direct sellers, and rewarding our channel partners for implementation (vs. reselling) for larger enterprise customers.Significantly increasing co-marketing funding for our channel partners to accelerate demand generation and time-to-close.Growing our learning resources, including launching more than 10 new Expertises and Specializations, and expanding our certification programs for partners to deliver the highest levels of Google Cloud expertise to customers.Launching a new program for resellers to support customers via offerings on the Google Cloud Marketplace.Sharing a toolkit to bring the best of Google’s diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) resources to our ecosystem of partners, including programs to develop inclusive marketing strategies and deploy DEI training within their own organizations.As we kick off 2022, it’s clear that the trend of digital transformation will only continue to drive customer demand for the cloud and, more importantly, a need for services, support, and solutions from our partners. We believe that by centralizing our partner groups into a single organization and by more than doubling our spend in support of our partner ecosystem over the next few years, we will help accelerate our joint momentum in the market around the world. For more information on these new programs and resources, please reach out to your Partner Account Manager or login to your Partner Advantage portal at partneradvantage.goog.

  • Are you a multicloud engineer yet? The case for building skills on more than one cloud
    by (Training & Certifications) on January 7, 2022 at 5:00 pm

    Over the past few months, I made the choice to move from the AWS ecosystem to Google Cloud — both great clouds! — and I think it’s made me a stronger, more well-rounded technologist.But I’m just one data point in a big trend. Multicloud is an inevitability in medium-to-large organizations at this point, as I and others have been saying for awhile now. As IT footprints get more complex, you should expect to see a broader range of cloud provider requirements showing up where you work and interview. Ready or not, multicloud is happening.In fact, Hashicorp’s recent State of Cloud Strategy Survey found 76% of employers are already using multiple clouds in some fashion, with more than 50% flagging lack of skills among their employees as a top challenge to survival in the cloud.That spells opportunity for you as an engineer. But with limited time and bandwidth, where do you place your bets to ensure that you’re staying competitive in this ever-cloudier world?You could pick one cloud to get good at and stick with it; that’s a perfectly valid career bet. (And if you do bet your career on one cloud, you should totally pick Google Cloud! I have reasons!) But in this post I’m arguing that expanding your scope of professional fluency to at least two of the three major US cloud providers (Google Cloud, AWS, Microsoft Azure) opens up some unique, future-optimized career options.What do I mean by ‘multicloud fluency’? For the sake of this discussion, I’m defining “multicloud fluency” as a level of familiarity with each cloud that would enable you to, say, pass the flagship professional-level certification offered by that cloud provider–for example, Google Cloud’s Professional Cloud Architect certification or AWS’s Certified Solutions Architect Professional. Notably, I am not saying that multicloud fluency implies experience maintaining production workloads on more than one cloud, and I’ll clarify why in a minute.How does multicloud fluency make you a better cloud engineer?I asked the cloud community on Twitter to give me some examples of how knowledge of multiple clouds has helped their careers, and dozens of engineers responded with a great discussion.Turns out that even if you never incorporate services from multiple clouds in the same project — and many people don’t! — there’s still value in understanding how the other cloud lives.Learning the lingua franca of cloudI like this framing of the different cloud providers as “Romance languages” — as with human languages in the same family tree, clouds share many of the same conceptual building blocks. Adults learn primarily by analogy to things we’ve already encountered. Just as learning one programming language makes it easier to learn more, learning one cloud reduces your ramp-up time on others.More than just helping you absorb new information faster, understanding the strengths and tradeoffs of different cloud providers can help you make the best choice of services and architectures for new projects. I actually remember struggling with this at times when I worked for a consulting shop that focused exclusively on AWS. A client would ask “What if we did this on Azure?” and I really didn’t have the context to be sure. But if you have a solid foundational understanding of the landscape across the major providers, you can feel confident — and inspire confidence! — in your technical choices.Becoming a unicornTo be clear, this level of awareness isn’t common among engineering talent. That’s why people with multicloud chops are often considered “unicorns'' in the hiring market. Want to stand out in 2022? Show that you’re conversant in more than just one cloud. At the very least, it expands the market for your skills to include companies that focus on each of the clouds you know.Taking that idea to its extreme, some of the biggest advocates for the value of a multicloud resumé are consultants, which makes sense given that they often work on different clouds depending on the client project of the week. Lynn Langit, an independent consultant and one of the cloud technologists I most respect, estimates that she spends about 40% of her consulting time on Google Cloud, 40% on AWS, and 20% on Azure. Fluency across providers lets her select the engagements that are most interesting to her and allows her to recommend the technology that provides the greatest value.But don’t get me wrong: multicloud skills can also be great for your career progression if you work on an in-house engineering team. As companies’ cloud posture becomes more complex, they need technical leaders and decision-makers who comprehend their full cloud footprint. Want to become a principal engineer or engineering manager at a mid-to-large-sized enterprise or growing startup? Those roles require an organization-wide understanding of your technology landscape, and that’s probably going to include services from more than one cloud. How to multicloud-ify your careerWe’ve established that some familiarity with multiple clouds expands your career options. But learning one cloud can seem daunting enough, especially if it’s not part of your current day job. How do you chart a multicloud career path that doesn’t end with you spreading yourself too thin to be effective at anything?Get good at the core conceptsYes, all the clouds are different. But they share many of the same basic approaches to IAM, virtual networking, high availability, and more. These are portable fundamentals that you can move between clouds as needed. If you’re new to cloud, an associate-level solutions architect certification will help you cover the basics. Make sure to do hands-on labs to help make the concepts real, though — we learn much more by doing than by reading.Go deep on your primary cloudFundamentals aside, it’s really important that you have a native level of fluency in one cloud provider. You may have the opportunity to pick up multicloud skills on the job, but to get a cloud engineering role you’re almost certainly going to need to show significant expertise on a specific cloud.Note: If you’re brand new to cloud and not sure which provider to start with, my biased (but informed) recommendation is to give Google Cloud a try. It has a free tier that won’t bill you until you give permission, and the nifty project structure makes it really easy to spin up and tear down different test environments.It’s worth noting that engineering teams specialize, too; everybody has loose ends, but they’ll often try to standardize on one cloud provider as much as they can. If you work on such a team, take advantage of the opportunity to get as much hands-on experience with their preferred cloud as possible.Go broad on your secondary cloudYou may have heard of the concept of T-shaped skills. A well-rounded developer is broadly familiar with a range of relevant technologies (the horizontal part of the “T”), and an expert in a deep, specific niche. You can think of your skills on your primary cloud provider as the deep part of your “T”. (Actually, let’s be real — even a single cloud has too many services for any one person to hold in their heads at an expert level. Your niche is likely to be a subset of your primary cloud’s services: say, security or data.)We could put this a different way: build on your primary cloud, get certified on your secondary. This gives you hirable expertise on your “native” cloud and situational awareness of the rest of the market. As opportunities come up to build on that secondary cloud, you’ll be ready.I should add that several people have emphasized to me that they sense diminishing returns when keeping up with more than one secondary cloud. At some point the cognitive switching gets overwhelming and the additional learning doesn’t add much value. Perhaps the sweet spot looks like this: 1< 2 > 3.Bet on cloud-native services and multicloud toolingThe whole point of building on the cloud is to take advantage of what the cloud does best — and usually that means leveraging powerful, native managed services like Spanner and Vertex AI. On the other hand, the cloud ecosystem has now matured to the point where fantastic, open-source multicloud management tooling for wrangling those provider-specific services is readily available. (Doing containers on cloud? Probably using Kubernetes! Looking for a DevOps role? The team is probably looking for Terraform expertise no matter what cloud they major on.) By investing learning time in some of these cross-cloud tools, you open even more doors to build interesting things with the team of your choice.Multicloud and youWhen I moved into the Google Cloud world after years of being an AWS Hero, I made sure to follow a new set of Google Cloud voices like Stephanie Wong and Richard Seroter. But I didn’t ghost my AWS-using friends, either! I’m a better technologist (and a better community member) when I keep up with both ecosystems. “But I can hardly keep up with the firehose of features and updates coming from Cloud A. How will I be able to add in Cloud B?” Accept that you can’t know everything. Nobody does. Use your broad knowledge of cloud fundamentals as an index, read the docs frequently for services that you use a lot, and keep your awareness of your secondary cloud fresh:Follow a few trusted voices who can help you filter the signal from the noiseAttend a virtual event once a quarter or so; it’s never been easier to access live learningBuild a weekend side project that puts your skills into practiceUltimately, you (not your team or their technology choices!) are responsible for the trajectory of your career. If this post has raised career questions that I can help answer, please feel free to hit me up on Twitter. Let’s continue the conversation.Related ArticleFive do’s and don’ts of multicloud, according to the expertsWe talked with experts about why to do multicloud, and how to do it right.

  • A learning journey for members transitioning out of the military
    by (Training & Certifications) on November 11, 2021 at 5:00 pm

    Each year, about 200,000 U.S. veterans transition out of military service. However, despite being well-equipped to work in the tech sector, many of these veterans are unable to identify a clear career path. In fact, a2019 survey found that many veterans feel unprepared for the job market after their service and are unaware of how GI benefits can be used for learning and training. That’s where Google Cloud skills training comes in. This August, 50 service members began a 12-week, Google Cloud-sponsored Certification Learning Journey toward achieving the Google Cloud Associate Cloud Engineer certification. Participants had access to online, on-demand learning assets, bi-weekly technical review sessions taught by Google engineers, and mentoring through Google Groups. Upon completion of the online training, participants will now attempt to pass the Google Cloud Associate Cloud Engineer certification exam. A passing grade will grant these military members a new cloud certification, which is a great way to demonstrate cloud skills to the larger IT market. Getting certified can open up internships, job opportunities and help career progression for our veterans.Why get Google Cloud certified? Cloud computing is one of the fastest-growingareas in IT. As cloud adoption grows rapidly, so do the ways that cloud technologies can solve key business problems in the real world. Cloud certifications are a great way to demonstrate technical skills to the broader market beyond the military. Cloud skills are also in demand. More than 90% of IT leaders say they're looking to grow their cloud environments in the next several years, yet more than 80% of those same leaders identified a lack of skills and knowledge within their employees as a barrier to this growth. Unfortunately, according to a 2020 survey report, the IT talent shortage continues to be a leading corporate concern, with 86% of respondents believing it will continue to slow down cloud projects. A shrinking pool of qualified candidates poses a top business risk for global executives as they struggle to find and retain talent to meet their strategic objectives.Want to learn more?As we wrap up this first Certification Learning Journey for Service Members, plans are underway to expand to new cohorts in the coming months. The classes are completely virtual, and all training is on-demand so that participants can access their coursework anytime, anywhere via the web or mobile device. To determine whether you (or someone you know) would be a great fit for this certification journey:Watch the Certification Prep: Associate Cloud Engineer webinarComplete the Skill IQ Assessment via PluralsightReview the Associate Cloud Engineer Certification Exam Guide Take the Associate Cloud Engineer sample questionWho’s eligible? U.S. military members transitioning out of service and veterans with CS/CIS related education or relevant work experience (IT, CyberSecurity, Networking, Security,  Information Systems) are eligible for the program. Although the ability to code is not required, familiarity with the following IT concepts is highly recommended: virtual machines, operating systems, storage and file systems, networking, databases, programming, and working with Linux at the command line.At Google Cloud, we are committed to creating training and certification opportunities for transitioning service members, veterans, and military spouses to help them thrive in a cloud-first world.

  • Video walkthrough: Set up a multiplayer game server with Google Cloud
    by (Training & Certifications) on October 29, 2021 at 4:00 pm

    Imagine that you’re playing a video game with a friend, hosting the game on your own machine. You’re both having a great time—until you need to shut down your computer and the game world ceases to exist for everyone until you’re back online. With a multiplayer server in the cloud, you can solve this problem and create persistent, shared access that doesn’t depend on your online status. To show you how to do this, we’ve created a video that takes you through the steps to set up a private virtual, multiplayer game server with Google Cloud, with no prior experience required.In this video, we walk through the real-world situation described above, in which one of our team members wants to create a persistent shared gaming experience with a friend. One of our training experts shows his colleague step-by-step how to use Compute Engine to host a multiplayer instance of Valheim from Iron Gate Studio and Coffee Stain Studios.This tutorial doesn’t assume that you’ve done this before. Along with our in-house novice, you’ll be guided through the process to create a virtual machine on Google Cloud Platform and configure it to connect to remote computers. Then, using Valheim as an example, we’ll show you how to set up a dedicated game server. The video also takes you through decisions about user settings and permissions, such as whether you want to allow multiple parties to manage the cloud host, and security considerations to keep in mind. We’ll talk about resource requirements and possibilities for scaling up, and break down some of the factors that will influence the cost, including a detailed explanation of the specifications we used in our walkthrough scenario. Ready to play?

Question 7: Select the concept that is defined as ensuring that servers are available if a single data center goes offline.

A. Scalability

B. Fault tolerance

C. Elasticity

D. Agility

Answer 7:

B

Notes 7:

Fault tolerance is the property that enables a system to continue operating properly in the event of the failure of one or more of its components. In Azure, it refers to ensuring that a portion of the production systems are available online (via a failover cluster, available set, or available zone) if a subset of the system components (or an entire data center) goes offline.

Reference 7: Fault Tolerance

Question 8: In regards to comparing Public Cloud and Private Cloud, which of these best describe the characteristics of a Public Cloud?

A. No-upfront costs

B. More control over the security

C. Less reliability

D. Less maintenance

Answer 8:

A and D

Notes 8

The public cloud provides a pay-as-you-go pricing model which can lead to lower costs than those in private cloud solutions where capital expenditures are high.

The public cloud provides agility to provision and de-provision resources quickly with far less maintenance than that of private cloud solutions.

Reference 8: Pay as you go

Question 9: Which of the following are considered capital expenditures (CapEx)?

A. Storage area network

B. Cloud-based virtual machine

C. Office 365 licenses

D. Hyper-V host server

Answer 9:

A and D

Notes 9:

Storage costs are typically considered CapEx and include storage hardware components and the cost of supporting them. Depending on the application and level of fault tolerance, centralized storage can be expensive.

Server costs are considered CapEx and include all server hardware components and the cost of supporting them. When purchasing servers, make sure to design for fault tolerance and redundancy (e.g., server clustering, redundant power supplies, and uninterruptible power supplies). When a server needs to be replaced or added to a data center, you need to pay for the computer. This can affect your immediate cash flow because you must pay for the server up front.

Reference 9: Storage area networkHyper-V host server

What is Azure VM temporary storage?

 

In Azure, every VM – regardless if Linux or Windows – gets a temporary disk assigned automatically. This temporary disk is located on the physical server (the hypervisor) where the Azure VM is hosted and is non-persistent. Disks used by the operating system or additionally added data disks are persistent disks and stored in Azure Storage.

Azure VM’s can be moved from its current host to new host at any time due to maintenance, hardware failures or other reasons. In such an event, the data from the temporary storage will not preserve or moved to the new host. Apart from the hardware failures, there are many other reasons data from the temporary disk will be lost:

  • Resizing of the VM
  • Restarting of the VM
  • Moving from one host to another
  • Updating/upgrading of host

Really, the temporary disk should never be used for data that has to be persistent. To avoid misconfiguration, the disk also has the drive label “Temporary Storage” and includes a text file “DATALOSS_WARNING_README.txt”. Read more here…

Does Azure VM include a Windows license?

It depends on the virtual machine type we talk about. Some Azure virtual machines include a Windows operating system license in their price (some even include a SQL Server). Some do not, however, there is an “Azure Hybrid Use Benefit” in certain Microsoft licensing programs, where basically the customer can use its previously acquired software licenses on Azure virtual machines (“bring you own license”). Also, there are Azure virtual machines available with different Linux distributions (both commercial and community), Windows Server license is obviously not included in these. Continue reading here

Please consult the Windows virtual machine pricing guide of Azure for details: Pricing – Windows Virtual Machines | Microsoft Azure

What is a data disk in Azure VM?

 

What are things to look out for when choosing a location for your Microsoft Azure VM?

 
The argument in placing a cloud vm would be performance. Performance in the cloud world means cost. The better performance you need the more its going to cost you. But the other side of that is the faster you can solve the problem you are trying to solve. The business problem to evaluate in placement of a VM is loosley these two things: Does increasing the performance of the application provide the overall answers required faster? Are there things you can do to your application that will allow it to better take advantage of cloud capabilities…

Testimonial: Passed my AZ-900 on the second attempt!

Wow, what a difference a couple of days and a different set of questions makes. I took the exam Monday and fell just short of passing (659), and I retook it today and scored 850! The questions on the first attempt were definitely harder, and I could tell from the first few questions I was going to have a rough time.

Today was totally different and I felt like I was getting all the “gimme” questions first and was able to coast through most questions confidently. I flagged exactly half the questions for review and at the end I had 20 minutes leftover after I was done reviewing. Total day and night difference between the two attempts.

For preparation I used:

– Microsoft Learn

– A Cloud Guru AZ-900 course + practice exam

– Tutorials Dojo practice exam

– and of course, John Savill’s YT channel

I bought the TD practice exams because of all the suggestions here, and I can attest they were well worth the price. This morning before the exam I went through all the TD section-based exams and took each one until I scored 90% on every section. I don’t always condone preparing for the exam on the day of but it was certainly a nice confidence booster to help me get mentally prepared.

Testimonial: Passed my AZ-900 on the first attempt!

Pleased to have passed this first time with a score of 775!

For any looking to sit this, I’ve had around 3 years of experience proving 2nd line technical support for an Azure environment. I used the following to prep for this exam:

Scotty Duffy’s Udemy Course – this was a bit of a waste of time and money in my eyes, nowhere near detailed enough. There are some reviews from people saying they passed the exam using this course alone with no experience using Azure but I really do not believe that.

Tim Warner’s YouTube series – this was great bearing in mind it was free. Way more worth the time than Scott’s, I wish I’d have started here.

Tutorials Dojo Practise Exams – I’d only recommend using these exams to test your knowledge and build some confidence, the questions in the exam were more difficult but the format and nature of these give you a good idea of what to expect.

Hope this advice helps some of you – onto the AZ-104!

I studied way too much – make sure you know what each service does and how offerings differ

1. Availability Zones vs. Sets

2. Datacenters vs. Regions vs. Geographies

3. Where Compliance and Security information is done

4. Exactly what Azure Advisor can do, so you know what it can’t do.

5. The Difference between the DB offerings.

6. The difference between SaaS, IaaS and PaaS – really know this, multiple questions on it.

7. When you are charged for data transfer vs. when you are not.

Use the following flowchart to select a candidate compute service.

Decision tree for Azure compute services

Definitions:

  • “Lift and shift” is a strategy for migrating a workload to the cloud without redesigning the application or making code changes. Also called rehosting. For more information, see Azure migration center.
  • Cloud optimized is a strategy for migrating to the cloud by refactoring an application to take advantage of cloud-native features and capabilities.
  • App Service. A managed service for hosting web apps, mobile app back ends, RESTful APIs, or automated business processes.
  • Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS). A managed Kubernetes service for running containerized applications.
  • Batch. A managed service for running large-scale parallel and high-performance computing (HPC) applications
  • Container Instances. The fastest and simplest way to run a container in Azure, without having to provision any virtual machines and without having to adopt a higher-level service.
  • Functions. A managed FaaS service.
  • Service Fabric. A distributed systems platform that can run in many environments, including Azure or on premises.
  • Virtual machines. Deploy and manage VMs inside an Azure virtual network.
  • Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) lets you provision individual VMs along with the associated networking and storage components. Then you deploy whatever software and applications you want onto those VMs. This model is the closest to a traditional on-premises environment, except that Microsoft manages the infrastructure. You still manage the individual VMs.
  • Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) provides a managed hosting environment, where you can deploy your application without needing to manage VMs or networking resources. Azure App Service is a PaaS service.
  • Functions-as-a-Service (FaaS) goes even further in removing the need to worry about the hosting environment. In a FaaS model, you simply deploy your code and the service automatically runs it. Azure Functions are a FaaS service.

There is a spectrum from IaaS to pure PaaS. For example, Azure VMs can autoscale by using virtual machine scale sets. This automatic scaling capability isn’t strictly PaaS, but it’s the type of management feature found in PaaS services.

Azure Data Store:

Use the following flowchart to select a candidate data store.

Data store decision tree

Which of the following choices isn’t a cloud computing category: NAAS, PAAS, SAAS, IAAS, DAAS?
– Networking-as-a-Service (NaaS)

– NaaS isn’t a cloud computing category.

A friend asked me to make a simple discord bot for their medium sized server (3050 messages a day on average so it will sit idle most of the time!). I got the 150 bucks/month from my corporations VS 22 enterprise subscription so i thought it would be cool to use this free money to help a friend and gain some knowledge in a cool, new and upcoming field. As said above the bot would sit idle most of the time and the way discord bots work, is that the discord servers do the main operational lifting so the server probably wont need much resources overall. For now the bot is only supposed to be a simple command bot with some cool extra stuff for the comments. Therefore the main priorities are ram > cpu power > storage space. My take for now is that 8 GB of vram, some vcpu and 10 to 20 GB storage space would be enough for the start. Going with linux as thats cheaper according to the online calculator. ​ ​ Which pricemodel / virtuall server do i take to get the most bang out of my buck, there are so many different ones? Its important to me that this wont hit the 150 bucks / month cap so noone has to pay for anything. submitted by /u/BirnitheConquerer [link] [comments]

  • Point to Site Client IP Address Logging
    by /u/neminat (Microsoft Azure) on May 20, 2022 at 9:49 pm

    We have a Virtual Network Gateway that our users connect to (point to site vpn). I want to know what client had a specific IP address but i cant see where this logs this information anywhere. Do you happen to know where this may be stored? There isnt even a diagnostic logging where i can send it to a Log Analytics workspace like there normally is for other resources. Any ideas? submitted by /u/neminat [link] [comments]

  • Activating Blog Trigger in Synapse without publishing Changes
    by /u/No-Manufacturer-3155 (Microsoft Azure) on May 20, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    Hi, My question is based on the question here for ADF. I dont want to merge my trigger want to keep it on my test branch. I have tested adding blobs but my trigger for the pipeline isnt triggered. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/65819220/activating-adf-triggers-without-publish I wanted to know if this same solution would work for Synapse where I would use a Powershell Script to set the Trigger. I don't have the proper permissions on the Synapse which is why I wasn't able to test it yet. Or do you have another solution would be great. Thanks submitted by /u/No-Manufacturer-3155 [link] [comments]

  • Pearson Vue payment issues
    by /u/martin_italia (Microsoft Azure) on May 20, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    Im having trouble booking an exam on the pearson vue website, it keeps declining my payment with the message "payment denied, please contact your bank or use another card" Ive contacted my bank who say there are no issues, for them its a simple e-commerce transaction, im within my monthly e-commerce limit, there is money in the account, and the card is not blocked (I also purchased €120 concert tickets yesterday, and paid the barber with the card today, so I know its working!) The bank say it could be a temporary problem with the vender website, but im not sure Anyone else had this issue? Is there a contact mail? Ive heard bad things about pearson vue, but personally ive done 6 exams with them and never had an issue at any stage of the booking or exam taking process, so this is a first for me. Ive used this card on there before too submitted by /u/martin_italia [link] [comments]

  • PIM Access Review for Azure Resource not working at RG level
    by /u/t3kka (Microsoft Azure) on May 20, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    Brushing up on PIM for my AZ-500 but I'm confused as to why my Global Administrator account is unable to create an Access Review for a specific role at the resource group level. Going to the PIM blade, then Azure Resources (under Manage), then changing Resource Type to "Resource Group" and selecting the specific group I want, I dont get the option to create an Access Review. I only get the Access Review option when selecting the higher level subscription scope. ​ All of my users have AAD P2 licenses and the review I'm creating is around a simple role (Network Contributor) that is assigned to a single group and then directly to a user AT the Resource Group level within PIM and the assignment has been activated but I'm still not seeing anything. ​ What am I missing here? submitted by /u/t3kka [link] [comments]

  • Determine management group of a subscription
    by /u/cloudAhead (Microsoft Azure) on May 20, 2022 at 6:27 pm

    I know I can use Get-AzManagementGroup to chase down a hierarchy of management & subscriptions, but it's fairly cumbersome to use. Is it possible to find the parent MG given a subscriptionid or name via a powershell cmdlet or graph api request? submitted by /u/cloudAhead [link] [comments]

  • Can SQL Server Auditing funnel data to more than 1 Log Analytics Workspace?
    by /u/d3fnotarandomnam3 (Microsoft Azure) on May 20, 2022 at 6:20 pm

    On a SQL Server resource, Under Security section and in Auditing you can specify a location for the SQL Auditing data. Can you send to two Log Analytics locations? Doesn't seem like it in the portal and tested a few ways in powershell. This seems like something that should be possible. submitted by /u/d3fnotarandomnam3 [link] [comments]

  • JSON for new CategoryGroup options in Diags Logs instead of Individual Categories
    by /u/d3fnotarandomnam3 (Microsoft Azure) on May 20, 2022 at 6:07 pm

    I have some json code that enables and configures diagnostic metrics and logs on certain resources. You typically have individual Categories you can check off and in code it looks like this: "logs": [ { "category": "OperationalLogs", "enabled": true } However, for some of the resources they have introduced Category groups so in the diags settings you can check off something that will enable multiple, and even an allLogs option. I'm trying to figure out how to update the code for this. Anyone have any examples of how this would look in code? And how would you reverse engineer this to find out? For example if you do it manually in the portal first how would you script out the diagnostic settings? submitted by /u/d3fnotarandomnam3 [link] [comments]

  • Web Application Firewall with Web app
    by /u/glabel35 (Microsoft Azure) on May 20, 2022 at 4:35 pm

    Trying to get a WAF in front of a Web app following this guide Manage traffic to App Service - Azure Application Gateway | Microsoft Docs About the WebApp: I've purchased a cert and uploaded it to a keyvault. I added a custom domain to the webapp and the cert is delivered via the key vault. When DNS is pointing to the webapp external ip, everything works. Access restriction is on and I have added a rule to allow the WAF subnet through a service endpoint. The endpoint status is enabled. About the WAF: Its in a dedicated subnet. Clients are hitting it via public IP. It is already working with a Azure VM via another listener and backend pool. No issues with this. I have added a new listener/backendpool/route per the URL guide above. The new listener is using the same cert I purchased for the web app via the keyvault. I changed the DNS for the custom domain to the WAF and resolution is as expected. When I get to the custom probe and do a backend health check I get "With the WAF Custom probe pointing to the custom domain I'm getting " Cannot connect to backend server. Check whether any NSG/UDR/Firewall is blocking access to the server. Check if application is running on correct port. "" I've added an inbound rule for the web app's outgoing IPs to the WAF subnet. It allows TCP 443 to the WAF subnet CIDR. Outgoing on this subnet is not blocked but for fun I added an outgoing allow from the subnet to the incoming ip of the web app. I've also tried stuff like allowing gateway manager to "AppService.RegiontheWebAPPisin" When I browse to my custom URL I get a cert warning and it looks like its presenting the cert from the other listener on the WAF. So I double checked the custom domain listener for the webapp and its using the correct cert. So i have multiple problems possibly. WAF listener is not assigning incoming custom domain requests to the appropriate cert and the WAF doesn't seem to be able to connect to the backend WebAPP. Any ideas or resources? FYI: Troubleshoot Bad Gateway errors - Azure Application Gateway | Microsoft Docs only seems to address the health probe warning from the context of a VM being the backend target. submitted by /u/glabel35 [link] [comments]

  • HP Workpath Printer setup to Microsoft Universal Print

    HP seems to be priding themselves with their Workpath app, but there's no guides or documentation on setting up or installing the Workpath app directly. Most the guides I find are in relation to using the connector app, but with Workpath supposedly its not needed.

    Just out of total curiosity, how long did it take any of you to begin studying for, say, AZ-900 to passing the final exam? (Does not have to be AZ-900, but any of your certs.) I am totally curious about time-frames and what a realistic expectation it should take. I also know timelines will vary depending on experience. submitted by /u/undertheinfluenceof [link] [comments]

  • Azure Data Factory w/ SHIR BCDR

    Drafting an ADF BCDR strategy. I have multiple ADFs sharing one ADF's SHIR resource in prod and am using private endpoints. All the ADFs are linked to Github and point to a single storage account. For my BCDR strategy, I am pre-staging the same config into DR. During a failover, I should be able to just turn DR on. What gotchas should I be considering? What kind of failover process should I look at? Documentation on this is scant at the moment. If you find anything please send my way submitted by /u/nomadconsultant [link] [comments]

  • How to create labs for AZ-104?
    by /u/Real_Lemon8789 (Microsoft Azure Certifications) on May 20, 2022 at 3:25 pm

    I have an Azure Developer tenant that includes Microsoft licensing, but does not include any subscription credits. I had opened a free Azure trial last year with a different tenant and never used it. So, the $200 subscription credit expired and got wasted in the first 30 days. Is there another way to get a 30 day trial of subscription credits and apply it to the developer tenant I have now or else create a separate tenant with $200 credit to use for AZ-104 test prep? I was also planning to use GitHub labs related to AZ-104, but I don’t understand how to use that. I went to the GitHub page and I just see links on the page to a bunch of files. I don’t see any explanation of what to do with all those file links. submitted by /u/Real_Lemon8789 [link] [comments]
