Blob Index for Azure Storage (Preview)
Blob Index provides native object management and filtering capabilities, which allows you to categorize
and find data based on attribute tags set.
Blob Index not only helps you categorize, manage, and find your blob data but also provides integrations
with other Blob service features, such as Lifecycle management.
Container Registry: customer-managed keys (Preview)
With the introduction of customer-managed
keys you can supplement default encryption
with an additional encryption layer using keys
that you create and manage in Azure Key Vault.
server-side encryption with customer-managed keys for Azure
Managed Disks (GA)
Azure customers already benefit from SSE with platform-managed keys for Managed Disks enabled by
default. SSE with CMK improves on platform-managed keys by giving you control of the encryption keys
to meet your compliance need.
SSE with CMK is integrated with Azure Key Vault, which provides highly available and scalable secure
storage for your keys backed by Hardware Security Modules. You can either bring your own keys (BYOK)
to your Key Vault or generate new keys in the Key Vault.
Incremental snapshots of Managed Disks (GA)
Incremental snapshots are a cost-effective, point-in-time backup of managed disks.
Unlike current snapshots, which are billed for the full size, incremental snapshots are billed for the
delta changes to disks since the last snapshot and are always stored on the most cost-effective storage
Azure disk sizes and bursting (GA)
even the smallest Premium SSD disks (4 GiB) can now achieve up to 3,500 input/output operations per
second (IOPS) and 170 MiB/second.
Disk bursting will be enabled by default for all new deployments of burst eligible disks with no user

Enhanced features in Azure Archive Storage (GA)
Priority retrieval from Azure Archive
Your archive retrieval request is placed in front of other requests and your offline data is
expected to be returned online in less than one hour, compared to 15.
Upload blob direct to access tier of choice (hot, cool, or archive)
Copy Blob enhanced capabilities
In certain scenarios, you may want to keep your original data untouched but work on a
temporary copy of the data. The Copy Blob API is now able to support the archive access tier;
allowing you to copy data into and out of the archive access tier within the same storage
DCsv2-series VM from Azure confidential computing (GA)
Uses hardware-based trusted execution environments (TEEs).
Even cloud administrators and datacentre operators with physical access to the servers cannot access
Intel SGX hardware protects your data and keeps it encrypted while the CPU is processing it, even the
operating system and hypervisor cannot access it, nor can anyone with physical access to the server.
New scenarios are possible now in Azure, like confidential multi-party computation where different
organizations combine their datasets for compute-intensive analysis without being able to access each
Files share snapshot management by Azure Backup (GA)
Azure Monitor for virtual machines (GA)
Troubleshoot guest-level performance issues.
Determine whether back-end VM dependencies are connected properly
Discover VM hotspots at scale based on
- resource utilization,
- connection metrics,
- performance trends
Azure Form Recognizer (GA)
Extracting text and structure information from documents is a core enabling technology for RPA
The service now supports training with and without labels
Filesystem SDKs for Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2 (GA)
GA of Python, .NET, Java, and JS filesystem SDKs for Azure Data Lake Storage (ADLS) Gen2
This includes support for CRUD operations for filesystem, directories, files, and permissions with
filesystem semantics for ADLS Gen2.
This streamlines the ability to ingest, manage, and analyze data for ADLS Gen2 and help them gain
insights at cloud scale faster than ever before.

From Paper to Power using Azure Form
Speaker: Jernej Kavka
Join Jernej Kavka on the journey from waiting weeks to get feedback
from the user group talks to have the results in less than an hour for
each event. You’ll see how you can use Form Recognizer to parse the
data straight from the page, what you can and can’t do right now, as well
as how you can leverage other Cognitive Services to get more details
from the user feedback forms!
