This is part 1 of our 4-part series on the benefits of cloud migration with Azure.
Azure cloud migration is the transfer of both applications and workloads from existing bare metal or cloud infrastructure to Microsoft Azure, an enterprise-focused cloud platform.
Microsoft Azure supports a complete range of public, private, and hybrid cloud infrastructure, but it is not merely a platform for launching virtual servers and storage. Azure also offers many network, application hosting, container hosting and management, monitoring and logging, analytics, security, database, and machine learning services.
Microsoft recently released updates to the version-agnostic management pack for SQL Server. The management pack was originally released in November 2017 and at that time it supported SQL Server 2017 and newer only. In July 2018, Microsoft released a preview version adding support for SQL Server versions: 2012, 2014, and 2016. Now it has published the first GA version with support for 2012+, including support for SQL Server 2019 CTP. With this release, the version-specific management packs for SQL Server 2008, 2012, 2014, and 2016 will no longer be supported.
VIAcode is happy to announce the release of a new Azure Marketplace app that makes it easier for Azure users to integrate their on-site infrastructure with Azure Monitor’s logging and monitoring interface. SCOM Alert Management automates the creation of alert rules from the System Center Operations Manager in an Azure Monitor Log Alert workspace.
When businesses migrate infrastructure to Azure, application performance monitoring tops their list of priorities. They want to know how to take advantage of Azure’s wealth of logs and metrics to monitor the performance of their application, the VMs and services it depends on, and the underlying infrastructure platform. Azure users approach VIAcode with three fundamental questions.
On September 20, VIAcode’s CEO Victor Mushkatin, one of the creators of Azure Application Insights, entrepreneur and cloud manageability visionary, hosted a webinar about the latest and greatest technology from Azure.

Less than two months ago Microsoft released SQL Management Pack for Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Community Preview. Today, a new CTP version of that MP is available for download. Even though the interval between the releases was relatively short, that new CTP contains a number of valuable improvements.
In the previous two blog posts we have discussed the installation procedures (link) and performance improvements (LINK) in the new version of MS SQL Management Pack (MP). The Datacenter View, the Dashboards home page, provides information about the datacenter health state in an aggregated way.
This is a continuation of my previous blog post (link here) from earlier this week, where I provided a high-level overview of the new Microsoft SQL Server Management Pack and installation procedures and issues. Now I will share performance details about this MP update.
