In recent years, more and more popular use of cloud technology. They are used in business processes, web hosting, telecommunications services, in software development and testing, for private use and much more. The main advantage of using cloud technologies and the reason for their ubiquitous distribution is the lack of the need to have a powerful computing system for the end user, which unambiguously leads to a significant cost reduction for business or ordinary end users. In addition, the cloud services provider takes care of the work of the system and applications, provides technical support to users, installs updates on its own and upgrades the computing servers and storage servers. Thus, the user is less concerned with technical issues related to the operation of the system and he can focus on his goals.
As part of the cloud infrastructure, cloud storages can be distinguished.
When in the distant 2001 the VMware ESXi hypervisor appeared on the market, a virtual revolution started that began the end of the era of personal computers with the programs installed on them. This event opened a new era in the development of computers and software – client-server technologies and cloud computing technologies.
No one should be surprised at this point if we mention that Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the main cloud provider in the market, they were and still are one of the main innovators and precursors of cloud services. It’s not going to be a surprise either if we tell you the Microsoft Azure is in second place and growing, but it may surprise you how much Google Cloud is actually growing and that Alibaba Cloud was the second largest growth year-over-year.
Microsoft is continuously releasing new features and options available in their public Azure version, the initial state is usually the “preview” of this feature, which after a period and final touches transforms into General Availability (GA). Within the last couple of weeks, Microsoft released two new features in these two different stages: Adaptive Applications Controls as a public preview and Azure App Service Diagnostics as general availability. These new features come with great benefits for organizations relying on Azure to host critical applications.
Automating every single task is one of the biggest challenges for every SysAdmin. Either you work on-premise or with Azure, you must automate most of your day-to-day task in order to save your time. In this article, I would like to introduce Azure Automation which is a software as a service (SaaS) application and a wonderful tool in order to automate repeated tasks. Nowadays, every SysAdmin should try to keep its IT infrastructure up and running.
Amazon recently announced a new addition to their current offerings, specifically around regions and confidentiality: AWS Secret Region.

We won’t be telling you anything new if we are talking about Microsoft looking to take away VMware resources to the cloud, and now they are including a new product to facilitate the VMware workloads to the MS cloud – Microsoft Azure Migrate – is a free tool, launching Nov. 27th, that will make it easy for VMware customers to bring their application to the cloud.
Gluon was defined by these two companies as “an open source deep learning interface that allows developers to more easily and quickly build machine learning models without compromising training performance”. But, what exactly does this represent? It’s acting as an interface that lets developers, of different skill levels, use Python and pre-built deep learning templates to simplify the building of models to run neural networks.
Managing snapshots, or at least using a tool that manages the snapshots for you, is a very common scenario for any IT admin today. Windows clients have this option available for a long time, storage systems leverage snapshots for several processes, but probably the most well-known scenario we see snapshots today are backups. Microsoft just announced they are offering, as a public preview, the snapshots functionality for Azure File Shares.
