The next evolution of VMWare on Azure, Azure Container Registry and custom roles in Azure Portal – Currently remote desktop solutions such as Citrix and VMware are being inundated due to so many people working from home. But did you know that the original remote desktop solution shipped with windows NT server 4.0 in 1996 that was the year that the movies Independent Day and Twister were released? Yeah, no, just like Hollywood, good old remote computing has also come a long way.
Azure Container Registry get dedicated data end points and you can create custom roles to your hearts content for the Azure Portal. So this week a new evolution of VMWare was married with Azure, the mostly Dell-owned application virtualization service is now a first class citizen on Azure. What does that mean? You ask? Well, sifting through the flood from the gushing fountain of marketing speak, it means the following, easier to migrate existing VMware solutions to Azure.
Dedicated support from Azure to set it all up. Leverage a hybrid solution, if you don’t want to have everything in the cloud from the start and of course the usual cloud benefits of scalability, elasticity and bonus cake each November. Oh, hang on. What was that? You want to be in it too. Okay, sure. Oh thanks Lars. You can sit there. So Azure Container Registry is where all of your major container images that Azure Kubernete’s use, live.
It’s a snug home with free Netflix and daily walks and the containers do well there. Now this week they got a little bit more love dedicated data end points let’s you configure firewalls with a fully qualified domain name for the data end point associated with your container registry except before you had to rely on a wild card. Azure blob storage endpoint crude, the new endpoint should also reduce data exfiltration risks.
Finally, some fresh air. I’ve been stuck in that studio for weeks now. The last bit of cloud news from Microsoft this week is that you can now create custom roles in the Azure portal. Yep. A long awaited feature. Previously it was only possible using the command line interface or the API itself to create custom roles.
