Well, this is take 2 on this post as I didn’t make a draft of the first one. I’ve been taking it easy lately and kind of focusing on applying for jobs, contact with temp agencies, interviews (I had 3 on Friday! hoping one of the works out) as well as doing some home renovation stuff. I have a thread on twitter seen here, for home renovation stuff. Anyway, I have an amazing super goth bathroom with a shelf in the shower for candelabra lit showers that I’m enjoying immensely and feel free to make fun of me about this haha
As well as a black/white shabby chic looking desk that’s also covered in glitter and candles. You really only notice the glitter as it flickers off the reflection of the flame. It’s pretty cool. My desktop PCs was about 400 dollars used like 5 years ago so I can’t do much more than tweet and, write blog posts, from that machine. Which, other than making music is pretty much all I do anyway. Regardless, it would be nice to have another FL machine. So lets get into this pots. I mean, Post. I thoroughly enjoy Azure but have been so into HGTV while having time off haha. By time off I mean, the world is recovering from a pandemic and people are burning cities down and rioting over police brutality and the ATL police decided they would go ahead and shoot another guy. In the back.
Anyway, lets get Azure..
I kind of covered part of this but I don’t know everything about it. The other thing about these questions is you can sort of guess because the answers on the left go in matching size boxes. honestly, I find it helpful. Anyway, lets look at it step by step. Use the Azure Import/Export service to import data to Azure Blob Storage
So, these steps are honestly kind of random because you are physically shipping a drive to MSFT and they manually import it to a blob for you. They do actually ship the physical drive back to you if you request it though. I feel like I went over this but somehow was confused on the fact that they didnt transfer the data over VPN
Anyway, that’t the bit about returning the drives.
Naturally, one would assume that MSFT wouldn’t pick the underutilized proprietary web language for the most common app language in use. I picked Java just because while considering that the answer probably was .Net
This question is kind of confusing. The second question is easy but I’m not super clear on the math on the first one. So lets start into that. The part I don’t understand here is that I’m not seeing a time deliminator of after (unit of time) at (CPU usage) then create the condition of (spin 2 more VMs up). Perhaps the time limit is a standard notion? I have no idea where to find this info. So according to this Understand Autoscale settings
See where it says ‘past 10 mins’? That’s a configurable setting that I didn’t see in the question. So I think this one has some specific issues regarding it.
The small text in the first one is the important part, its a load balancer and the details of the back end part isn’t what its asking about, its asking how to set up a load balancer that’s connecting several things. Anyway, lets start with the linked article. Actually, lets start here What is Azure Application Gateway?
Azure Application Gateway is a web traffic load balancer that enables you to manage traffic to your web applications. Traditional load balancers operate at the transport layer (OSI layer 4 – TCP and UDP) and route traffic based on source IP address and port, to a destination IP address and port. Application Gateway can make routing decisions based on additional attributes of an HTTP request, for example URI path or host headers. For example, you can route traffic based on the incoming URL. So if /images is in the incoming URL, you can route traffic to a specific set of servers (known as a pool) configured for images. If /video is in the URL, that traffic is routed to another pool that’s optimized for videos.
And this is the linked article Tutorial: Create an application gateway with path-based routing rules using the Azure portal
This is the part they are talking about and given the options it makes sense but somehow Azure is still slightly confusing. Like its Windows but on Weed lol
I got to mail stuff? Things are called different things! You got routing tables that are all caty wompus!
Well, this one, to be honest, I dont really know what it is and I thought about drinking a cup of coffee before tackling this. Decided I could manage though.
- Azure Backup Server – Back up files, folders, system state using the Microsoft Azure Recovery Services (MARS) agent. Or use the DPM or Azure Backup Server (MABS) agent to protect on-premises VMs (Hyper-V and VMWare) and other on-premises workloads
- Recovery Services Vault – Recovery Services vaults are based on the Azure Resource Manager model of Azure, however Backup vaults were based on the Azure Service Manager model. When you upgrade a Backup vault to a Recovery Services vault, the backup data remains intact during and after the upgrade process. Recovery Services vaults provide features not available for Backup vaults
- A backup policy – not really an Azure thing
- A recovery plan – not really an Azure thing
The back up server is actually an application. not entirely clear but it appears to be used for, making back ups. It’s interesting that even in Azure there is so much focus on backup but I supposed they are not writing your code and managing your machines. However, hardware failure does seem to be off the table. Anyway, that’s all for now. I’ll probably create another one of these later today.
