Microsoft Azure pros discuss VM performance, Bicep deployments with GitHub Actions, and SNAT port exhaustion.

Boosting the performance of Azure VMs

Microsoft senior cloud advocate Thomas Maurer shared ways to improve performance and reliability for Azure VMs with Azure Advisor. Users need to check on VMs periodically as the cloud environment changes and Advisor provides a "personalized cloud consultant" for that purpose.

Users are able to access Advisor through the Azure portal, or directly with Azure VM navigation. In fact, users are able to create Advisor recommendations forwarded to an inbox. He recommends users explore Advisor capabilities in Microsoft documents.
