Book Review - Microsoft Azure Essentials: Fundamentals of Azure

The free ebook, Microsoft Azure Essentials: Fundamentals of Azure by Michael S. Collier and Robin E. Shahan, is a beginner level book that takes us on a tour of commonly used Azure services. With lots of screenshots, the book provides a high-level overview of Websites and Cloud Services, Virtual Machines, Storage, Virtual Networks, Databases, Azure Active Directory and Management Tools in with crisp explanations. It is suitable for developers, IT professionals & managers exploring the Azure Cloud landscape who may not have the time to scour through MSDN documentation & Microsoft blogs but just need to know the "essentials".

I read the ebook with the Windows 8.1 Reader app and found it very informative and up-to-date. I have heavily highlighted points within the book in order to review them in the future.

Due to the evolving nature of the Azure Cloud Platform, it is hard to find books that are still relevant by the time they are published. Therefore, timely video tutorials and ebooks like these directly from Microsoft are very welcome. I hope this ebook is constantly updated as changes to the Azure portals and services happen.
