Azure Advisor Quick Fix is now available

Published date: August 05, 2020

Azure Advisors new Quick Fix feature makes optimization at scale faster and easier by allowing users to remediate recommendations for multiple resources simultaneously and with only a few clicks. Users can now multi-select resources to take the recommended Advisor actions on all selected resources as a bulk operation instead of having to remediate each resource individually. Quick Fix also creates a consistent, streamlined, and more automated experience for Advisor recommendation remediation. At launch, Quick Fix is enabled for a subset of Advisor recommendations in the Azure portal, with more on the way.

The Azure Cloud Shell tools image is now open sourced

Published date: August 10, 2020

Azure Cloud Shell is a browser-based, authenticated shell experience to manage your cloud resources.  The Cloud Shell experience contains common command line tools to manage resources across both Azure and M365, and can now be found on GitHub. You can now file issues or pull requests directly to the tools image, and any changes that occur there will be reflected in the next release of Cloud Shell.  You can use this container image in other management scenarios, with many tools already installed and updated regularly, removing the concern about updating your cloud management tools.

Encryption of backup data using customer managed keys is in public preview

Published date: August 12, 2020

When backing up your Azure Virtual Machines, you can now encrypt your data using keys owned and managed by you. Azure Backup lets you use your RSA keys stored in the Azure Key Vault for encrypting your backups. The encryption key used for encrypting backups may be different from the one used for the source. The data is protected using an AES 256 based data encryption key (DEK), which is, in turn, protected using your keys stored in the Key Vault. This gives you full control over the data and the keys.

This feature is in public preview for new vaults in all Azure regions.
