Welcome back. Fellow propeller heads and techno geek sis's modulate 0.2 is your compute storage and some database workloads thrown in because we can't get through our day without clearing our data sets trying to understand today's crosswords puzzle. So let's get ready and spin ups from artificial machine intelligence via ours, your compute storage and data base platform.
But we better be quick.
Our bank account is a little thin and into the cloud pays you go hourly model. We can afford to run our machine for just about three seconds, but that is three million microseconds to a cloud computer, so we might just get our workload done. So let's go. Is your it up?
So the azure hyper visor is referred to as the native hyper visor in the azure cloud platform. The azure native hyper visor enables us the ability to create virtually machines and servers on the azure cloud. The azure native hyper visor is very similar to the tear to hyper visor of Microsoft hyper V, but it's custom I specifically for the azure platform.
The azure hyper visor can be used to create virtual machines and servers with almost any operating system
you can manage multiple virtual machine instances, and by manage, we mean using the elasticity of the azure cloud we can add to remove CPU RAM and storage. Resource is and then manage their access, controls and permissions
if you need to search inquiry your data. Azure is the King Kong king of gorillas. When it comes to databases and azure, you have so much flexibility in the kinds of database platforms you could spin up. Custom query, manage and maintain In the 2019 Forster Wave, which is a highly respected guide created by industry analysts and the technology marketplace,
the Forrester Wave named Microsoft the leader in cloud database. As a service,
an azure you can provisioned quickly and with scale, any kind of relational database and data warehouse. And there are fast and highly scaleable data exploration and data clearing tools at your disposal. With Azure Cosmos D B. You get a fully manage database service that can be distributed across Microsoft Data Centre regions across the globe
and be guaranteed ultra low read and write. Leighton sees.
So with Cosmos D B, you can run your enterprise mission critical workloads on a world class infrastructure with enterprise grade security and compliance. So, from our azure council home page, we've gone ahead and chosen. Quick start center and quick start center. We've got some easy to follow wizards to do. Some of the commonly
commonly created things that we need to do is a cloud administrator. Maybe we want to for the first time. Shut up. Are as your organization so we can create our ad mons and set up in plan ours. You're
cloud roll out. Maybe we want to create a new web app or deploy new virtual machine or set up a new database or create a new backup repositories. Well, what we're gonna go ahead and do is we're gonna deploy a new virtual machine.
What do we want to create? We want to create a new Lenox machine, a new virtual machine, Or maybe using the azure, my great tool we want taken existing VM from our data center and then migrate that V m to the new V. M instance that we're going to set up in Microsoft Azure.
If so, then we would use this migrate tool here. Well, in this case, we're gonna go ahead and create a new Windows Virtual machine.
So from this new front and Paige, we're gonna set up. How do we want to pay for it? Paige ago? Or is an annual subscription. We would choose our resource group where we want to group. Our resource is and then assign our virtual machine to a group of resource Is that we've got stood up and ready for us. Give it a virtual machine name.
We'll call it happy packets
you see here that would pass the name check. We can choose a region. There's 38 different regions in the is your data center global network. We're gonna go ahead and choose us East and let's choose our server. Instance. Windows Server sent alas, U Bahn to Well, we're gonna go ahead and choose the Windows Server 2012 R two data center.
Then, if we want to change the size, what size do you want to change its? These are small options and in general
ah, general purpose. Whatever that particular size or reason or purpose for our virtual machine. We can come in here and shoes are different size options and we could see our cost per month. And how many's e. P V, C pews and RAM and disc and I ops that we're going to require.
And then we can come in here and give it a administrator user name and password, and then we can go to our disks and choose the type of disk we want. Premium. Ah, solid state drive standard solid straight driver spinning disc. We just want a regular old vanilla flavored hard disk drive. Well, we're gonna go and choose that, reduce our costs,
and then we're gonna create an attach our new
disc s so that we can now have something that we can spend our virtual machine up on. We choose our networking parameters.
We give it the management options that we need here so we can enable diagnostics we can enable logging, for example,
we got some advanced options. Tags are really great. So once we spent up a whole bunch of e EMS, we can create tags which would be basically filters. So when we were gonna run searches,
we can search for particular values like the number six saying every single instance or every single value that comes up with the number six will will come out of our search criteria in our search fields when we're done
good stuff. And then when we're ready, we hit, review and create.
And then here we review well, it's a pay as you go service name of happy packets, which look at our standard hard disk drive.
Our network service is our management diagnostic tweaks that we've turned on and we would go ahead and hit, ready to go hit, create, boom. And we're done.
So from her as your counsel home page, we're gonna create a little storage. So we're gonna go appearing to this thing called storage accounts. And an azure storage account is basically a container where we can put all our blobs are files are disk. We can put all of our storage that we create
in this container, and we can give it what's called a name space, which is a unique name
that we can access our storage anywhere in the world as long as we opened up her browser and go to the appropriate http or https that has our names based in it. So we're gonna go ahead and do now is we're going to create this new storage account
and let's go ahead and create it.
So we choose our subscription options pay as you go, or an annual We give it again the resource group, uh, give it a storage account name that has to be all lower case. We're gonna call a happy package storage.
We choose our region and let's go ahead and do us Central and we want standard or premium performance. We choose our storage options, blob storage, general purpose one or general purpose to and
what we want. We want locally redundant. So this is all about that raid stuff that we talked a little bit about? We weren't locally redundant storage. Where do we want our stores to be replicated across regions and zones or geo redundancy. So in other words, it's gonna write our data across multiple regions. Well, we're gonna go and just do locally redundant.
And then do we want that stuff to be, ah, kind of accessible. So on some lower in mid tier storage because we're gonna access at once in a while or do we want it on really fast? Ah, commonly accessed, commonly looked at, Reed writes.
So we're gonna go ahead and leave it in our hot storage options. And then we're gonna hit, review and create.
And so here. And we get these validations because we didn't finish all of the fields. But we're just demonstrating we're not actually going to create it. Ah, but you get the name, the resource group. So it just repeats to you the different fields that you set up and created and then boom. And then we've created our new storage service. Cool, huh?
Right from her as your counsel home page, We're gonna show you how easy it is to create a database. So we're gonna go up here to sequel databases and we're gonna create a new one,
and we'll choose the pay as you go. We'll go ahead and select an existing resource. We'll call it the my sequel Resource. We're gonna give it a database name. We're gonna call it happy Paige. It's it's quick to capitalize it, and we're gonna choose Ah, resource will go ahead and create a new one. So
s so we can access it from the Internet. We need to give it a name.
And now it's happy packets dot database that windows dot net. And now we're going to give it. A server had men,
and we're gonna choose password
and in which he was a region on. We'll go ahead and give it
Ah, us East And then we hit, okay,
and we'll go ahead, hit, review and create. So the database is gonna cost us 380 us per month and pay as you go resource and our names, and we'll go ahead and create.
Now it's gonna take it just about three or four minutes to create our database, and we'll come back to you here in just a second.
So it literally took three minutes, maybe four minutes, to spin up this new database and went through all the tests checks. And now that it's done, it says, Hey, my deployment is complete and we're gonna go ahead and go to our resource.
So now we have access to our database, and we haven't turned it on yet, which is why we don't have any performance metrics here. But we got the name over. Here's our happy packets dot database that windows dot net the server name pay as you go.
And then down here, here's our use space. Are allocated space or maximum storage size
notifications. And here's our utilization in the last hour, 24 hours in seven days or activity logs. Ah, we can diagnose her problems. Quick start query editor. So we can configure things. We can create you replication. We can do some search
items. We can create some advanced security rules and policies, monitoring some alerting and diagnostics.
Um, or we can start working with our database. We can start importing data we can import from an existing database said, or we can start creating Ah, this new database with new data. Ah, however, we want to perform moving forward
and we're good to go.
So we hope you enjoyed today's lecture on Azure is compute storage and databases. Next time we get together, we're gonna learn about security, identity and access management in Microsoft is you're this amazing cloud platform. Until then, we want to say thank you. Take care. We wish you the best of success and happy packets
