What's new? Cloud updates | July 2022

Microsoft Azure is becoming better and more complete every day. In this update we share three new items with you. 

1. Security update for VM's

Microsoft Azure clients can now construct Ephemeral OS disks, a type of disc built on local virtual machine (VM) storage that is not saved to remote Azure storage. This feature ensures that data can be stored more safely because communication is not sent to an off-site data center. More information can be found on Techradar.


2. Build apps faster with Azure Developer CLI

Microsoft recently shared the public preview of the Azure Developer CLI (azd) - this new, open-source tool revs the time it takes to get started on Azure. AZD has developer-friendly commands that show the different stages in your workflow. If you want to create a new application, you can use the code: azd up --template todo-nodejs-mongo. More information can be found through Microsoft.


3. Improve your GitHub skills
