Microsoft Azure expands with two new regions for Australia
Last month, we announced two new regions for Microsoft Azure located in Canberra, Australia and specifically designed to meet the needs of the Australian government. This increases the number of Azure regions announced across the globe to 42, more than any other major cloud provider.​ The two new regions, available in the first-half of 2018, are intended to be capable of handling sensitive Unclassified data as well as Protected data for the Australian government. Protected is a data classification for the first level of national security classified information in Australia. This is being achieved through a strategic partnership with the Australian-owned firm Canberra Data Centres (CDC). CDC are the preeminent specialist datacenter provider for secure government data in Australia with four modern Canberra-based facilities that hold the accreditations and security controls to handle even Top Secret classified data.

Reduce troubleshooting time with the upgraded Resource Health check in Azure SQL Data Warehouse. 

 

This upgrade considers the health status of all components of the SQL Data Warehouse architecture, which includes each SQL database distribution and the SQL Data Warehouse engine on each compute node. Login and heartbeat signals of each component are emitted at least once every 2 minutes, providing you a low-latency, holistic view of the health status of your data warehouse. If your instance is Unavailable, we will provide the reason along with recommended actions that you should perform.

 

The Resource Health check can detect unavailability reasons, such as when your instance is pausing, scaling, or upgrading. This feature also detects when there are any connection issues, whether they are user connections or inner SQL database connections.

You check the health of SQL Data Warehouse by signing in to the Azure portal and clicking the Resource Health blade.
