Participation in Microsoft Ignite The Tour 2019

Hello everyone!!

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.

Creating SPOT VMs in Azure


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

Creating Proximity Positioning Groups

Hello guys,

Do you know about Proximity Placement Groups in Azure and what they are used for? With proximity groups, you can place your Virtual Machines as close as possible, thus achieving the best possible latency. These proximity groups are a logical grouping to ensure that computational resources are physically located close to each other.

Participation in the CloudUp event 2019

Yesterday (10/11/2019) I had the great pleasure of speaking with my friend Clairo Dorneles, voluntarily at the CloudUp event – 3rd Edition. We simulated a live threat and automated response through Azure Sentinel, Microsoft’s SIEM tool. THANK YOU to everyone who participated in this great event and especially to the organizers Erik Filippini and Felipe Santos for the invitation.

Creating 2nd Generation VMs in Azure.

On the last day of 11/04/2019, Microsoft finally made second-generation VMs generally available, which we had on our local Hyper-v since Windows Server 2012 R2. They have a new architecture based on UEFI that is different from the BIOS-based architecture of generation 1. With these VMs, according to Microsoft, you will be able to:

  • Create larger VMs (up to 12 TBs).
  • Provision OS disk sizes that exceed 2 TBs.

Script to Automate Backup Vault Deployment and a Protection Policy in Azure.

Guys, I developed a PowerShell script to deploy a backup vault and a standard protection policy for your VMs in Azure. Through it, it is much faster and more practical to configure your backup infrastructure.

Talk at Global Azure BOOTCAMP 2019!!!

Good evening!! Last Saturday (27/04/2019) I had the great opportunity to speak with my friend Deivid Soares, voluntarily at Global Azure BOOTCAMP 2019. In this talk we explained and demonstrated the concept of Infrastructure as Code (IaC) using Azure DevOps.

Lecture at the largest Microsoft Experts event in Latin America: MVP Conf 2019 LATAM

Guys, what an event was this?? More than 2040 people gathered at Anhembi University in São Paulo, with the aim of sharing knowledge and generating networking in more than 100 available lectures. At this event, I had the great gift of being able to lecture in one of the lectures, about a successful case that I participated with my friend and MVP Rodrigo Crespi, at Via Certa (Large Financial Company in Southern Brazil).

How to estimate costs for replicating your environment with ASR in a Disaster and Recovery solution in MS Azure.

Hey guys!!

Do you know how to estimate the costs required to use Azure Site Recovery (ASR)??? No??? Let’s go…

I will demonstrate below an easy and easy-to-understand way.

As everyone knows, one of the disaster and recovery solutions present in Microsoft Azure is ASR. Through it, it is possible to replicate your Virtual Machines (VMs) from OnPremisses environments (Physical, VMware, Hyper-v), between MS Azure data centers, as well as orchestration of VMware and Hyper-v clusters.
