Azure Monitor provides a rich set of enterprise ready capabilities to ensure you have complete observability of your hybrid environment, helping you keep it always available, reliable and performant. We announced a whole set of new capabilities at Microsoft Ignite 2020, helping you get richer insights for your Azure and hybrid resources, apply benefits of Log Analytics workspaces & dedicated clusters to Application Insights, and create/manage alerts more effectively.
You can refer to our on-demand Ignite Session to learn more about what’s new in Azure Monitor, and see demos of many of these new capabilities.
Dedicated clusters help you to handle large scale deployments better by taking advantage of data encryption at rest (with Customer Managed Keys) & Lockbox, and even configure cluster level capacity reservation with discounted pricing.
General Availability of workspace-based Application Insights
Azure Monitor Application Insights now integrates deeply with Log Analytics using a unified workspace-based mode enabling you to store your app logs and your platform/infrastructure logs together in one place. Some of the enterprise readiness capabilities you can now take advantage of:
Data encryption at rest with Customer Managed Keys
Network isolation via Private Links
Capacity Reservation with discounted pricing
Data access control with LockBox
Continuous Export of App Logs to Azure Storage/Event Hub via Diagnostic Settings
Bring-your-own-Storage (BYOS) for code-level profiler/debugger diagnostics
Resource-centric log alerts in Azure Monitor are now in preview, supporting any resource in Azure that has logs enabled, with a new experience that allows you to create alerts on multiple resources using subscription and resource group scopes.
Secure Export is a new preview version of Azure Monitor ITSM Connector, allowing you to automatically send Azure AD authenticated alerts to an ITSM tool (partnering with BMC Helix as the first native integration).
Native health monitoring with Azure Deployment Manager by integrating Azure Monitor alerts for health checks during deployments.
