Getting Started with Azure – Basics, Tips, and Tricks
Learn the basics you need to know to get started with Azure cloud including virtual machine creation, introduction to Azure concepts, and more. This pre-recorded webcast is from Microsoft MVP and Green House Data Principal Consultant Aman Sharma.
In 2018, our Microsoft MVPs and expert staff helped us reach finalist for the Azure Compete Partner of the Year category. You can trust Green House Data staff to deliver best in class Azure cloud services.
Green House Data’s SpotLITE Discovery Process showed us how we could right-size our data center needs and cut out 30% of the cost by eliminating redundancies. What we thought we needed wasn’t the case and Green House Data gained our trust when they pointed this out instead of turning a blind eye and letting us over build and over spend.
Avid has a lot of specific requirements around individual apps. Green House Data learned the “snowflakes” that make the business work and delivered the deployment on time and on budget.
They are very knowledgeable and anticipate our needs in a way I didn’t think was possible from a vendor.

Every time I talk to one of our cloud team members at Green House Data, I feel like I learn something new about Azure.
Whatever your cloud or virtualization platform of choice, you can implement tags on your resources in order to easily apply configuration changes or search by group.
As multi-cloud environments continue to become more and more popular and your virtual servers, storage, and associated components sprawl across various providers, efficient governance becomes even more critical.
By implementing a cloud resource tagging policy, you lay the groundwork to consistently apply automated or manual actions relating to allocation, reporting, chargeback, compliance, security, patching, software installation, and even decommissioning or scaling resources when required.
Alert Rules in Azure are a tool to let you know when some condition of your choice has occurred within any given component of your Azure infrastructure. In other words, they alert you to potential problems so you can remedy them before anything serious goes wrong.
Have you ever had the tedious task of creating multiple alerts for all of the resources in your subscription? Let me tell you, it is really time consuming to create them from scratch one by one.
I have a PowerShell Script that can Target and Create specific metric alerts for the resources you define inside of the script, making it much simpler to create a large amount of alerts at one time.
Skip down to the script if you’re familiar with Alerts already. If you aren’t here’s an overview on how they work.
One key concept to master when dealing with cloud, containerized, or otherwise software-defined infrastructure is Infrastructure as Code. This may seem strange at first. After all, your code runs on top of infrastructure, right?
Infrastructure as code (IaC) works in practice by managing your computing resources — virtual machines, storage, networking, and all the associated policies for security and such — in the same manner as you treat your code. This packages everything necessary for your application, from the code and assets to the underlying infrastructure itself, together into what works functionally as a single deployment.
Just as DevOps combined development and operations into one entity, IaC combines code and infrastructure as one.
