Today, Microsoft Azure has a huge customer base across the globe who are enjoying the benefits of its mission-critical application development, deployment, and management processes at scale. This platform is undoubtedly an ever-evolving and innovative one with a mission to provide better deployment and management experiences and enable customers to build exceptional and efficient solutions.
Recently Microsoft Azure has announced several additional infrastructure capabilities, which help users meet their goals even faster and more efficiently than the previous ones.
This article contains information about how Microsoft Azure’s new infrastructure capabilities will help developers to simplify their application development, deployment, and maintenance procedures.
The majority of developers are often dependent on cloud platforms to test and run their developed applications. Microsoft Azure platforms always try to facilitate a better infrastructure configuration experience for the developers. Therefore, developers can focus more on the core development and innovation part rather than setting up measures and monitoring processes.
Microsoft’s product Azure Resource Manager provides very similar but powerful features to the developers, but at some point, it also gets complex. That’s why they introduced another functional product vertical with a better capability called “Azure Bicep.” This new capability is an open-source tool and is also known as the DSL (Domain-Specific Language). With the help of Bicep, developers can write and read code in the form of IaaS (Infrastructure as a code) in the Azure platform.
Bicep enables customers to develop and deploy Azure resources using their convenient technology stack (in the sense of programming language). Currently, In the latest version of Bicep, having a programming language choice is crucial for any developers’ workflow. Azure Bicep goes easily with modern tooling and VS Code integration, which enables features, like security, transformation, readability, and efficiency.
As we discussed before, Bicep is the same tool as ARM, thus, it can perform all operations that ARM templates can do, and it supports all Azure resource types without any state files. The recent version of Bicep provides a better-quality development experience with enhanced stability, with other additional capabilities, such as:
- Bicep Linter: It provides the best authorizing-related and customizable suite of best practices. Linter is the most extensible capability of Azure Bicep, which will continue to get more updates from the Azure community and Bicep team.
- Bicep Resource Scaffolding: This capability allows inserting necessary configurations of resource types so that developers can specify resources faster than usual, and even use them from the initial level.
Most Microsoft Azure users use critical workloads majorly on the Azure platform by integrating them to Linux and open-source services. But the Azure developers ensure to provide their customers with a more abstract platform for development. Of course, the enterprise developers must have technical knowledge and experience in running targeted services and the overall Azure architecture.
In order to achieve knowledge and expertise requirements, Microsoft partnered with Elastic service providing companies, like Kibana, Elasticsearch, and Logstash. Through this partnership, Microsoft Azure can roll out native Azure processes and reduce additional operational difficulties.
Now, In Azure Portal preview mode, developers can search, deploy, and manage the application on Elastic and connect it to other business native applications and other Azure offerings within a few clicks.
An Azure integration policy enables developers to implement powerful search and visualization features, adding a protection layer within Azure infrastructure. These capabilities will allow developers to get technical support from Elastic and help them to resolve security vulnerabilities. Plus, the billing of its utilization will be attached to the Azure bill, which makes the payment procedure more simplified.
Azure Monitoring Capability:
Nowadays, the IT platform monitoring process has become necessary for all users, as more threats and new security policies are emerging into the technology landscape. To monitor such activities and updates, organizations/users require effective capability tools, such as Azure Monitor. Many organizations utilize this tool to observe running applications, resolve vulnerabilities, enhance performance, and efficiency across the infrastructure.
We can say that Azure Monitor enables customers to the greater agility in resource sharing and end-system maintenance. Through this, Azure Monitor helps them manage Azure resources across the board with ease. Through this, Azure Monitor helps them manage Azure resources across the board with ease.
- Azure Monitor Agent and data collection principles were created to provide a simplified user experience with better agility while users gather data from Azure managed resources. It also provides multi-homing and event filtering on servers like Linux & Windows.
- The Microsoft Azure Monitor team is thriving in implementing new capabilities, supporting private links and direct proxies for advanced networking.
- This capability also allows users to collaborate with other team members for query processing of various log analytics.
- It provides advanced monitoring capabilities for Azure cloud resources with the help of automation tools.
- The new version automatically deploys Java updates on applications deployed on Linux and Windows services.
Do you know? Azure Monitoring doesn’t demand code amendments and makes the whole monitoring process of diagnostics and improvisation smooth.
Azure Bicep, Portal, and Monitor capabilities’ update will help organizations enhance their application development, deployment, monitoring, and management experiences.
