Alerting Through Azure Logic Apps

As we know alerting is the most crucial part of any infrastructure, and it becomes even more challenging when our infrastructure grows since we cannot monitor everything every time. Every client wants to get notified by their own alerting system before their customer reaches out to them and informs “Hey this service is not working or I am not able to access XYZ service“.

Alerting helps to ensure that the system remains healthy, responsive, and secure. It’s an important part of any system that makes performance, availability, and efficiency high. An operator might need to be notified of the event that triggers the alert.

We can set up alerts in many ways, but in this blog, I will be focussing on setting up alerting through azure logic apps.

Azure provides multiple options to send an alert to the end user, maybe through email, Slack, Pagerduty, SMS, etc. In this blog, I will be explaining the way to send an alert through email, Slack, and Pagerduty.

The Step-By-Step Guide to Connect Aws with Azure

As we all know AWS and Azure are the two Cloud providers and there can be possibilities that one of our services is running on one cloud provider and the other is running on another cloud provider and, both are dependent on each other.

Through this blog, I will guide you on the steps which will be needed for connecting AWS with Azure and also will be explaining all the components of both the cloud provider that will be required for creating the site-to-site VPN Connectivity.

Why are we trying to connect both?

In one of my projects, I met with a requirement where I was working on an application that follows a client-server architecture. There were servers connected to multiple clients. Initially, the Server was placed into AWS and the connected clients were also there, but after a couple of years our requirements got changed and a new business unit came into the picture with its own clients that were needed to be connected with the server present in the AWS cloud.

Now, these new clients were present on Azure but the server was on AWS. Migration of server was not an option for us because our customer was not ready to migrate those clients from Azure to AWS, so this was a completely new use case, to which we decided to connect both the cloud providers with each other by setting up IPSec VPN tunnel.

SonarQube Integration with Azure DevOps

What is SonarQube ?

In simple words, SonarQube is an open-source tool for continuous inspection of code quality. It does static code analysis, provides a detailed report of bugs, code smells, vulnerabilities and code duplications.

SonarQube integration with Azure DevOps

We can utilize built-in Azure DevOps tasks for SonarQube which helps us to incorporate this tool into our CI/CD pipelines. We will learn that with a use case.

Lets begin ūüôā
