Looking for the best way to maximize the availability and performance of your applications? Azure Monitor is a great way to monitor your workloads deployed in your Azure environment. In a recent webinar, Joshua Gural, dives into what Azure Monitor is and how it can help you on a day to day basis as an IT professional.
Azure monitor is a way to maximize the availability and performance of your applications by delivering a comprehensive solution for collecting, analyzing, and acting on telemetry from your cloud and on-premises environments. It allows for full stack visibility with visualizations, alerts and/or automations into your applications, IT infrastructure and your network.
This webinar starts with discussion of the 4 areas in which it provides visibility: activities, performance metrics, health and availability, as well as the two main types of telemetry that the Monitor collects. From here, Josh breaks down Azure Monitor into 4 main steps and dives deep into each one:
- Data Collection – gathering the data to be used in Azure Monitor
- Data Visualization and Analysis – making sense of the large amount of data collected
- Data Response – once you’ve identified an issue or unwanted trend, what can you do about it?
- Data Integration and Export – what other workloads, both in and out of Azure, can you use with Azure Monitor data?
The webinar wraps up with discussion of the Azure scaffold, a Microsoft term and Pragmatic Works offering that sets the framework for Azure architecture, but also can help validate your architecture. The scaffold is based on practices Microsoft gathered from many engagements with clients of various sizes and is intended to be the foundation of each new subscription within Azure. It enables administrators to ensure workloads meet the minimum governance requirements of an organization without preventing business groups and developers from quickly meeting their own goals.
