Azure VM Operation (Preview) Features

Today I just using azure portal I notice sudden change in VM blades operation category.Oh Azure team has added three new features to VM blade for easy management. Following are the new features added.

  • Update Management
  • Inventory
  • Change Tracking

Update Management

In Update Management blade we can see the required windows update for the VMs and they categorize them with the priority level. The cool thing about this feature now we can schedule update deployment.

Inventory & Change Tracking 

By using this feature we can easily identify changes in your environment. This tracks changes to Windows and Linux software, Windows files and registry keys, Windows services, and Linux daemons. Identifying configuration changes can help you pinpoint operational issues.

Following are the screen captures of the feature.
