  • Passing credentials between Azure Automation runbooks

    Update: Turns out there's an even easier way of achieving this than the method I've described in this blog post. 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 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 ...

  • Victims of success

    I feel like every database project has major decisions now, which are remarkably fundamental to the direction that’s going to be taken. And it’s almost as if new options appear with ever-increasing frequently. Consider a typical database project, involving a transactional system to support an application, with extracts into a data warehouse ...

  • Cloud – the forecast is improving

    There is a lot of discussion about “the cloud”, and how that affects people’s data stories. Today the discussion enters the realm of T-SQL Tuesday, hosted this month by Jorge Segarra. Over the years, companies have invested a lot in making sure that their data is good, and I mean every aspect of it – the quality of it, the security of it, the ...

  • 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. Since I need to deploy, start, stop and remove many virtual machines created from a common image I created (you ...

  • Videos and Training on Windows Azure IaaS from TechEd New Orleans

     I’m catching up on a bunch of features, functions, updates and more learning from the TechEd Event in New Orleans recently. In fact, videos, Windows Azure documentation, and of course blogs are the new way to keep up – books are just too slow to produce to handle the pace. I thought I’d share the links I’m ...
