Only a few additions again this month but a couple are pretty interesting.
Azure DevOps Server 2020 is added.
Dynamics 365 Sales Premium is added. This is a new SKU that combines the “Sales Enterprise” and “Sales Insight” licenses for £101.80 per user per month – a saving of £7.50 pupm. Naming wise – I’m not sure that having an “Enterprise” SKU inside a “Premium” SKU really makes sense tbh!
Azure SQL Edge is added. This is a new variant of SQL made for the cloud world with features including:
- Support for ARM architecture
- Built-in data streaming
- Network bandwidth optimisation
- Designed to run in containers
I’ve taken a look at it here.
Azure Stack Edge appears too – this is a physical device you keep on-premises, like a branch office or field location, to “filter, analyse, and transform your data before it moves to Azure”. Lose/damage one and it’s a $40,000 charge!
