HEYYY!!! After the great Microsoft Iginite The Tour event in São Paulo, there was a meeting for planning the year and exclusively with my MVP colleagues (Microsoft’s recognition for the Most Valuable Professionals), with the presence of Microsoft Brazil’s President Tania Cosentino. Thank you Glauter Jannuzzi and congratulations on the organization!! Ending the year on a high note!!
On the 12th and 13th, I had the great opportunity to participate in another Microsoft Ignite The Tour in São Paulo. For those who don’t know, this is the largest technical event in Latin America and it is a reproduction of the event that takes place in the United States, bringing together great professionals and technical news from Microsoft products. Thank you Clairo Dorneles for the partnership in this edition.
Microsoft has finally launched the SPOT VMs, which we already had in other clouds such as AWS and GCP. These virtual machines provide access to unused computational resources in Azure and also large discounts. However, they cannot be reserved and Azure can interrupt them at any time to use its resources. The SPOT VMs are ideal for:
- Workloads that can support interruptions
- Development and testing
- Applications that do not store state
- Short-lived tasks
- Batch jobs
