Microsoft began to ramp up its 2024 announcements as the year got underway.

Gartner has named Microsoft a leader in its 2023 Magic Quadrant for Container Management, together with Google, AWS, and Red Hat. “Gartner recognition of Microsoft as a Leader in this Magic Quadrant, we feel, highlights the broad and deep integration of Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) with other Azure services," stated Microsoft executive Sean McKenna.

Microsoft senior director Will Kearl explored Microsoft’s partnership with Dynatrace. With Azure Native Dynatrace Service, customers are able to rapidly migrate and optimize data in the cloud. For its part, Dynatrace recently launched its Grail Data Lakehouse, offering the ability to process logs without the traditional problems of indexing and re-indexing, in a format that is compatible with AKS, Cosmos DB, Azure Linux, and Azure Functions.

In geographic updates, Microsoft made Ultra Disk Storage available in UK West and Poland Central, with Zone Redundant Storage for Azure Disks expanding in new regions. General availability announcements include a MySQL import feature for Database for MySQL Single to Flexible Server migrations, the ability for Load Testing to fetch secrets from Key Vault with access restrictions, customer-managed keys for NetApp Files volume encryption, and ways to create HTTP requests in Load Testing. Public previews, meanwhile, include partition merge support for shared throughput databases and an Arc Visual Studio Code extension. A Trusted launch of Azure Gen1 VMs is in private preview, allowing customers to upgrade the foundational security of their existing Azure VMs.
