Deploying SSB on Microsoft Azure

You can now deploy SSB on Microsoft Azure using a bring-your-own license model.

Running SSB in Microsoft Azure brings you the obvious benefits of running an application in the cloud. The most notable of these is the ability to adapt to the capacity needs of your application. Azure Linux Virtual Machines provides on-demand, high-scale, secure, virtualized infrastructure. Microsoft Azure offers a range of SKU types suitable for different use cases, allowing you to pick various details of your instance(s) (for example, memory, CPU, storage).

Increasing the virtual disk size of SSB under a virtual machine

Increasing the virtual disk size of SSB under a virtual machine is now much easier. You only have to power down the virtual machine, increase the disk size, and start the machine again.

For step-by-step instructions on the procedure, see Chapter 8, Increasing the virtual disk size of SSB under a virtual machine in The syslog-ng Store Box 4 F9 Installation Guide.
