Performance Tips for Azure DocumentDB!!!!!!!!!!

Posted on

Azure DocumentDB allows you to tune the performance of your database to best meet the needs of your application.DocumentDB’s indexing policy also allows you to specify which document paths to include or exclude from indexing by leveraging Indexing Paths (IndexingPolicy.IncludedPaths and IndexingPolicy.ExcludedPaths).
The cost associated with each of these operations will vary based on the CPU, IO and memory required to complete the operation. Instead of thinking about and managing hardware resources, you can think of a request unit (RU) as a single measure for the resources required to perform various database operations and service an application request.

Protecting VMware and Physical Workloads with Azure Site Recovery!!!!!!!!!!

Posted on

InMage’s flagship product for site-to-site and site-to-hoster DR became part of Microsoft Azure Site Recovery (ASR). Microsoft Migration Accelerator – a service based on InMage technology that enables our customers to quickly and easily migrate their workloads into Microsoft Azure with the least amount of downtime.

The core components involved are:

Configuration Server – VM running at the secondary site that is responsible for maintaining replication policies, replication status, and health reports.
Master Target – VM running at the secondary site that acts as the repository for all replicated data and change journals.
Mobility Service – Light-weight software component that captures data changes being generated on the protected workloads continuously, in real-time and directly from memory, for replication purposes.
Process Server – Gateway residing at the primary site that handles all compute and IO intensive aspects of replication.
sizing and placement aspects of provisioning a Process Server for ASR with the InMage replication channel depend on a couple of factors such as number of protected workloads, and daily change rate.
