The purpose of Azure Key Vault is to store cryptographic keys and other secrets used by cloud applications and services in a HSM (Hardware security module).
In this example, we will create and mange Azure Key Vault using Terraform
Terraform is an open-source tool for provisioning and managing cloud infrastructure. It codifies infrastructure in configuration files that describe the topology of cloud resources. These resources include virtual machines, storage accounts, and networking interfaces. The Terraform CLI provides a simple mechanism to deploy and version the configuration files to Azure
Azure offers us several possibilities to collect data about the state of the services. Firstly, we can collect data from logs indicating which routes you should consult. Secondly, Azure allows us to obtain the logs collected in Windows events and in the Linux Syslog. In this publication, we will focus on the first option.
Inspec is the most common tool to do a complinace testing for the deployed infrastructure resources. very helpful in verifying that servers and applications you install are configured correctly and fulfill all compliance requirements by hand is tedious and error-prone. Chef comes with InSpec, a human-readable language for compliance auditing and testing your infrastructure. With InSpec, you can write automated tests to verify a host of criteria on your servers: from the contents of certain files to applications running on certain ports, you can make sure that your servers and applications are configured correctly.
A virtual network is nothing but, like On-premises network which we use switches and routers to communicate with servers and clients as same as Azure VNet is also used for communicating with azure resources. (Virtual Machine, Databases, etc.)
This week one of our customers called me, and he said my On-Premise storage running out of space! so he need to to create a new LUN/Disk for one of his critical servers.
So, In this post I will explain two options which Azure is providing in such case
