Saurya Das joins Scott Hanselman to show how multiple node pools for Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) enable you to use different virtual machine sizes in a node pool supporting a variety of workloads in a single AKS cluster. For example, an e-commerce website can have a node pool for a billing service and another for a machine learning-based recommendation service, each with GPUs.

Jacob Jedryszek joins Scott Hanselman to talk about about using Cognitive Services with Azure Search with your mobile and web apps. Skip hiring search experts who know what an inverted index is.

Don’t worry about distributed systems expertise to scale your service to handle large amount of data.

And forget about setting up, owning and managing the infrastructure. Let Azure Search do it all for you!

When a live site issue or outage occurs, quickly determining the root cause is critical. Standard monitoring solutions might alert you to a problem.

They might even indicate which component is failing.

But this alert won’t always immediately explain the failure’s cause. You know your site worked five minutes ago, and now it’s broken.

What changed in the last five minutes?

This is the question that Application Change Analysis is designed to answer in Azure Monitor.

    Data integration is complex and has many moving parts that spans across hybrid data environments. Typically, data integration projects have dependencies upstream and downstream making dependencies an important aspect to consider in any job scheduling.

    Gaurav Malhotra joins Scott Hanselman to show how you can create dependent pipelines in Azure Data Factory by creating dependencies between tumbling window triggers in your pipelines. Using these dependencies assures you that the trigger is only executed after the successful execution of the dependent trigger in your data factory.

    Michael Hansen joins Scott Hanselman to explain what FHIR is and how to get started with FHIR on Azure. Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (or, FHIR) is a new standard for representing and exchanging healthcare data. Developed by the HL7 community to address problems with interoperability, pieces of healthcare data are represented as resources in FHIR (i.e, a patient is a resource, observation is a resource, etc.). Resources are healthcare data objects with properties (e.g., a patient has a name) and relationships. The FHIR specification also describes how to exchange these objects using a REST API. A FHIR server is a REST API that enables you to search, retrieve, modify, and delete healthcare data objects. Microsoft developed a first-party FHIR server, which is available as an open source project on GitHub and as a managed service, Azure API for FHIR.
