The general availability of Azure Container Registry, a private repository for hosting container images for use on Azure was announced on Friday, helps developers create and maintain Azure container registries to store and manage private Docker container images.

Azure Container Registry 'integrates well with orchestrators hosted in Azure Container Service, including Docker Swarm, Kubernetes and DC/OS as well as other Azure Services including Service Fabric and Azure App Services," writes Steve Lasker.

"Companies of all sizes are embracing containers as a fast and portable way to lift, shift and modernize into cloud-native apps." With this availability, "customers can benefit from using familiar tooling capable of working with the open source Docker Registry v2," added Lasker.

This released includes the following features and capabilities build upon the November Preview:

  • Availability in 23 regions, with a global footprint (with more coming)
  • Repositories, tag, and manifest listing in the Azure Portal
  • Dual-key password providing key rotation
  • Nested level repositories

Azure Analysis Services, in addition to providing super-fast BI queries and a user-friendly BI semantic model, supports many manageability features. One such feature is a rich set of Extended Events (xEvents) which can be used for scenarios ranging from troubleshooting and diagnostics to in-depth auditing and usage analysis.

Microsoft is making improvements to branding login of Azure AD login pages, that will make it easier for employees and B2B guests to understand how they are signing in and what apps they are signing into in a variety of different scenarios.

"With the updated branding logic, the full-bleed illustration on the left side of the screen will now represent the resource owner for all tenanted login scenarios," writes Alex Simons. "It will override the app's illustration and will no longer be replaced by the user's org illustration."

This is a nice improvement for B2B flows, and it means that your employees and your business guests will now see a persistent representation of your organization.
