CrossBlogPost Microsoft #AzureStack TP3 in the Classroom for Students #Education #DellEMC


Microsoft Azure Stack in the Classroom for Students

Today Microsoft Azure Cloud technology is really going fast with Great innovations for people and their businesses to evolve in what they can do best in a real world.
To Learn these new fast going technologies is a challenge for teachers and students on school. I did some Azure workshops for students at Microsoft Netherlands, and when they have an
Azure subscription active they see and learn all the possibilities in the Cloud. ICT teachers and students love to work with Microsoft Azure Cloud technologies, making virtual machines
and upload their own images to work with. Learning how to develop applications and make them active in the Cloud for Mobile devices. The possibilities in Microsoft azure are endless for
Education, making training courses online, prepare online practical exams and much more. A lot of schools have Microsoft Imagine subscription to use great software of Microsoft, and for developers
there is also an Imagine Azure subscription available with Awesome Features available for Free. For ICT teachers and students who need Azure Cloud services with compute, vnet, Storage for virtual disk
images is also possible but you have to pay as you go and we know that Education and students don’t have enough money for that to learn awesome new technologies like Microsoft Azure.

With this knowledge we asked Dell EMC to support us in our Journey with Microsoft Azure Stack POC Single Server appliance ( Dell PowerEdge R630) to get the
Awesome Microsoft Azure technology in the Classroom for teachers and students to learn Cloud services.
Pim Langeveld (ICT Teacher at ROC van Amsterdam) and I made a blogsite for our Journey with Microsoft Azure Stack in the Classroom.

Here you find our AzureStack for Education Blog : https://azurestackblog.wordpress.com

Have a Look 😉

As an Microsoft MVP for Cloud and Datacenter Management I will help my friend Pim Langeveld and Education to get Microsoft Azure technology in the Classroom for Students in my free time by
doing Microsoft Azure Stack workshops and together we will make an Awesome Journey with the learning students.

#Microsoft Azure #CosmosDB Globally Distributed Multi-model Database Service #Cloud #Azure

 

Azure Cosmos DB is Microsoft’s globally distributed, multi-model database service for mission-critical applications. Azure Cosmos DB provides turn-key global distribution, elastic scaling of throughput and storage worldwide, single-digit millisecond latencies at the 99th percentile, five well-defined consistency levels, and guaranteed high availability, all backed by industry-leading SLAs. Azure Cosmos DB automatically indexes data without requiring you to deal with schema and index management. It is multi-model and supports document, key-value, graph, and columnar data models. As a cloud-born service, Azure Cosmos DB is carefully engineered with multi-tenancy and global distribution from the ground up.

5-Minute Quickstarts

Learn how to use Azure Cosmos DB to create a globally distributed database using one of the multi-model APIs:

Microsoft Azure Cosmos DB Documentation

From here you see how simple you can Activate Azure Cosmos DB :

Select Azure Cosmos DB and Create

Creating CosmosDB

From here you can select your Platform and Add Collection.

And do Epic Things in Visual Studio 😉

What really Awesome is to replicate with Microsoft Azure Cosmos DB :

Here I have the Write Region in North Europe

Here I have added a Read Region Japan West by Click on the +

Write Region is North Europe
Read Region is Japan West

From here you can do a Manual Failover

Here you see the Failover between Europe and Japan

My Write Region is now Japan West instead of Europe
And you can add more Regions like this.

And of course everything is in the metrics monitoring.

It’s a Great Microsoft Azure Cloud solution for Enterprises doing business all over the world and for Developers to make Epic Things !
