Joe Levy explains all in the comments below.  I’ve been doing a lot of work lately using Azure Automation to run (what are essentially) Powershell scripts against Azure. Recently the ability for those scripts authenticate against ...

  • Azure Automation Pain Points

    In April of this year Microsoft announced a new offering on their Azure platform called Azure Automation (which I briefly talked about at Azure Automation – the beginning of cloud ETL on Azure?). Azure Automation allows one to run Powershell scripts on Azure. I have been using Azure Automation for the past couple of months on my current project ...

  • Azure Data Factory (ADF) leaks – Microsoft’s ETL-in-the-cloud offering is coming

    I wouldn’t normally put up a blog post simply to draw attention to someone else’s blog post but in this case, given my heritage with Microsoft’s existing ETL tool (SSIS) and my long interest in all things to do with cloud and data integration I thought this was worth mentioning. Mary-Jo Foley has posted Microsoft readies new Azure Data Factory ...

  • Azure Automation – the beginning of cloud ETL on Azure?

    I have maintained a watching brief on what I refer to as “cloud ETL”, that is the ability build ETL routines in a cloud environment and therefore leverage all the benefits that the cloud model brings*. Thus far my main opinion piece in this area is What would a cloud-based ETL tool look like? in which I laid out what features I thought a cloud ETL ...

  • Clone an Azure VM using Powershell

    In a few months time I will, in association with Technitrain, be running a training course entitled Introduction to SQL Server Data Tools. I am currently working on putting together some hands-on lab material for the course delegates and have decided that in order to save time in asking people to install software during the course I am simply ...

  • PowerShell Script to Deploy Multiple VM on Azure in Parallel #azure #powershell

    This blog is usually dedicated to Business Intelligence and SQL Server, but I didn’t found easily on the web simple PowerShell scripts to help me deploying a number of virtual machines on Azure that I use for testing and development.

  • MySQL, NoSQL, and NuoDB

    I've been keen on MySQL ever since I first started using it heavily more than a decade ago.  In fact, I liked it well enough to include it as one of the four main database platforms, over and above the ANSI-ISO SQL standard, in my popular book SQL in a Nutshell. However, with the advent of NoSQL data platforms in the last few years, ...

  • Reading the tea leaves from Windows Azure support

    A few idle thoughts… Three months ago I had an issue regarding Windows Azure where I was unable to login to the management portal. At the time I contacted Azure support, the issue was soon resolved and I thought no more about it. Until today that is when I received an email from Azure support providing a detailed analysis of the root cause, the ...
