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.

When I deployed Bare-Metal servers, I always lose time because of updates. In part of my job, I deploy a lot of physical servers, especially for Microsoft hyperconverged solution. When I install this kind of solution, I have to implement between three to sixteen servers at the same time. The cumulative update installation in Windows Server takes almost 30 minutes. If the servers are not installed at the same time, you can lose a lot of time. This is worst when you install physical servers with a tool like MDT and PXE. You have to copy 1GB in each server and then wait to install it.
To save time, now when I’m deploying physical servers, I update the install.wim file. In this way, the OS is installed with latest updates. In this topic, we’ll see how to update images in WIM files.

Some people still consider PowerShell as something that you need to employ only for scripting and automation scenarios, but, when it comes to Microsoft Technology stack, PowerShell evolved into the preferable way of configuring and managing your systems irrespectively of availability of corresponding graphical user interface (GUI). In fact, PowerShell is your primary tool for day to day administration and even some one-off tasks are no longer an excluded use case for PowerShell.
Today, PowerShell is not only an easier way to do some one-off changes or configuration tasks, sometimes it is the only way you can do them. There are a lot of situations when there is no parity in what you can do in GUI and PowerShell, and if in the early days of PowerShell, you sometimes could have a problem of not being able to do something available in GUI with PowerShell, nowadays we have rather the opposite situation – GUI often miss some basic things which available to you only in PowerShell.

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.
