I don’t want to expose VMs to the entire internet - and neither should you. That is basically an invite to brute force attack the VM. Therefore, if I don’t use a VPN or Express Route connection to use private IPs, I use Network Security Groups (NSG) to control the traffic to VMs by allowing a single source IP.

In this post, I show how I do that with Terraform.

Hugo, Azure DevOps and Azure Storage Static Website - a fast and modern hosting platform for static websites

Hosting a super fast, modern, yet super-simple blog on Azure for 2$ a month? In this post, I explain, step by step, how I run this blog “serverless” and how my architecture evolved and simplified over time. Never had so much fun to blog.

Recently I was asked how many CPU cores were used in an Azure tenant. The intent of the question was to determine how many VMs could use the Azure Hybrid Benefit (AHUB) and to have a general number how many cores are in the cloud compared to onPrem. I thought that should be an easy exercise for Azure Resource Graph - and it is!
In this post I show you how I got the total count.
