Azure Site Recovery (ASR) now supports the disaster recovery and migration of on-premises virtual machines and physical servers with disk sizes of up to 4095 GB to Azure.

* The attraction of Azure Functions is the cost effectiveness and scalability of serverless computing. Cost is based on execution time and memory usage for each function invocation. An Azure Function definition can be written in a variety of languages – C#, F#, JavaScript, Bash, Powershell, and more. There is no distinction between compiled languages, interpreted languages, and languages typically associated with a terminal window. One criticism of Azure functions, and PaaS solutions in general, is vendor lock-in.

The new Dv3 and Ev3 (high memory D sizes:D11-D14) sizes are also some of the first VM’s to be running on Windows Server 2016 hosts.

Pakistan sans Sharif - The “warm and soft” Calibri was designed by Lucas De Groot in 2004 reached people on January 30, 2007 with the launch of Microsoft Office 2007 and Windows Vista.

These fats, which promote lower blood cholesterol levels, assist with blood sugar maintenance (especially for people with type-II diabetes), and contain vitamin E — a crucial antioxidant that supports a robust immune system whilst simultaneously protecting your vision. Avocados contain no cholesterol — no plant foods do. They do, however, help to lower blood cholesterol levels as they are packed with high-density lipoproteins (HDL), which help lower the amount of low-density lipoproteins (LDL), in the bloodstream. Given that avocados contain high amounts of HDL, it’s among many foods that contribute to a healthy cholesterol ratio. Avocados are high in beta-carotene, folate (a B vitamin), and potassium (ounce for ounce, avocados have 60 percent more potassium than bananas) - Go Ask Alice!
