Microsoft Improves Dynamics AX on Azure with New Resource Management, More Premium Storage

As Microsoft Dynamics AX continues to embrace Azure for its platform, infrastructure, and services, updates continue to improve the offering. Two updates this week serve as examples - one for scripting and one for improving enterprise grade performance.

First, Microsoft released a new set of sample PowerShell scripts that help customers more efficiently manage their AX computing resources in development, demo, and test topologies. The scripts leverage Azure Automation through Runbook capabilities.
