I'm an Azure Cloud Architect at Microsoft, formerly an Azure MVP. I work with awesome companies to help deliver their solutions on Azure.

I spend lots of energy in the user community, giving talks at several conferences, user groups, Azure Bootcamps, and code camps.

I'm a Giants fan in Redskins land, and I'm still searching for the perfect pun.

I have several Azure tips (and other ramblings) on my blog, at http://www.DavidMakogon.com.

comment Why can't I ssh to the Ubuntu VM in azure?
If you deploy multiple vm's to the same cloudapp.net container, then each vm will have a unique ssh port. In that case, you will need to specify the port, when it's not 22.

comment Azure virtual machines in the same network can't see each other
You should post this to ServerFault, since it's network-related and not programming-related.

comment Hiding my Azure VM from Public
Seems odd that this question was closed, as it appears to be valid (and makes sense to me): Connecting cloud services (web roles) and a VM (in this case, a redis server) either requires a public endpoint to be opened on the redis VM (since traffic jumps the cloud service boundary) or some type of vnet to be used. This, in my opinion, is a valid question that should be re-opened. And, once re-opened, I'll post an additional answer regarding the ACL approach.

comment Two virtual machines on Azure can connect each other without having any Virtual Network?
This question, to me, is perfectly valid and has a legitimate answer (which I posted) explaining the issue with ping and details around the need for a vnet to talk between VMs. Why would this be off-topic?

comment Slow connection to Azure Sql Server
Data Center (or more accurately region) is selected when you create your VMs, cloud services, websites, SQL Database services, etc. For example, they might be in West Europe or East US. If they're not in the same region, you'll see more latency and incur bandwidth charges. You can easily check this by looking at your database service, SQL service, etc.

comment Service receives api calls from different Azure ip's on “Standard-website”
You don't need to stop using websites (although that's always an option). My point was that you can have your website working along with a role instance or a virtual machine. You have lots of choices.

comment Change Hardware Resources During Certain Times Of Day On Windows Azure Virtual Machine
That's just the built-in autoscale feature, which is scale-out focused and has its limits. That does not equate to Azure not offering scale-up. Many ways to implement scaling. The built-in VM autoscale is just one way, and doesn't cover all scenarios.
