There are various ways to access a table of a storage account. If the storage account key is used, the request for the REST call must be generated in a complicated manner. The script getaztablerows.sh on Github shows the calculation:… Weiterlesen →
The previous post described how to deploy to an Azure Function if access is protected by an Application Gateway. Access to the function and to the management endpoint as well were protected. The Function was protected by the Function App… Weiterlesen →
Azure Functions are a serverless way to run code. They support different programming languages and can scale quickly. As a developer, it is particularly easy to deploy functions directly from Visual Studio or Visual Studio Code. Functions are often protected… Weiterlesen →
APIs are available for most functionality and information in Azure. A token, which must be sent with the request, is usually required to retrieve the information. Generating a token dynamically or retrieving it via a service principal is often a… Weiterlesen →
Azure App Services are often placed behind an Application Gateway. Routing is easier to control, your own certificates can be stored centrally and data traffic can be checked and attacks detected. However, if the App Service responds with redirects, the… Weiterlesen →
As a starting point, there should be an API with a GET operation to retrieve (flight) data from a Cosmos DB. How the token can be generated to access the Cosmos DB was shown in the previous post Calculating CosmosDB… Weiterlesen →
If workloads are to be set up in the Azure, there are various options. To make the choice easier, Microsoft provides the Compute Decision Guide (see picture above). It differentiates between Lift&Shift and Cloud Native and gives recommendations for individual… Weiterlesen →
In the blog post about endless running Azure Functions on Consumption Plan, normal Azure Functions can run without time limit with the help of the functionTimeout property. The same option is also available for the durable functions. The same timeout… Weiterlesen →
Standard Azure Functions (not Durable Functions) have a maximum timeout of 10 minutes on a consumption plan. This is the same timeout for the new Function Runtime ~4 (missing in the link). With the Function Runtime ~3, however, the timeout… Weiterlesen →
My challenge was to start a runbook as soon as a new file was stored in Azure Blob Storage. Unfortunately there is no direct configuration option in the storage account for such notifications. One way would be to poll the… Weiterlesen →
Many customers have problems choosing the right Azure Region for their workload. Especially since the German Region is available, but not all Azure services are available yet, the selection has become even more difficult. To simplify the selection, the workflow… Weiterlesen →

What is a desirable time-to-market for a product? Of course, there can be no blanket answer here. But in the morning at the coffee machine to have an idea and in the afternoon, the first customers use the feature – that would be innovative!
Cloud native software development without the container platform Docker? – unthinkable! In addition to the established Linux containers, the Windows containers also try to find their way. We dare to compare and check whether Windows containers are already among the “first-class citizens”.
Cloud native Softwareentwicklung ohne die Containerplattform Docker? – Undenkbar! Neben den etablierten Linux Containern versuchen auch die Windows-Container ihren Weg zu finden. Wir wagen den Vergleich und prüfen, ob Windows Container schon zu den “First-Class-Citizens“ zählen.
