About Azure InfoHub


What Azure InfoHub is

  • A little personal development project by a Microsoft employee (as such, there are no implicit or explicit obligations related to it)
  • A resource of publicly available content about Azure (you won’t find any content there that is not available somewhere else). You will find per service...
    • Links to official homepage, SLAs, limits, pricing
    • Short overview
    • Getting started link lists (how to start with using the service)
    • Full content map of the official documentation with links to the documentation
    • Links to videos (on Channel9 and YouTube), online-trainings, tools and StackOverflow questions
  • A link-network between content sources (feeds, Azure doc, Stackoverflow, Youtube etc.) and output channels (the website itself, its RSS-feed-capabilities etc.)

What Azure InfoHub is NOT

  • It is not an official Microsoft resource.
  • It does not contain any content only available there, it only references to other content.
  • It is not a way to “steal” web traffic from other Azure-content-source (it’s the opposite: it’s an attempt to direct traffic to these sources and make content visible/findable on a per-service-basis)
  • It does not have any hard SLAs.

What User Data does Azure InfoHub Collect

Good news from a privacy standpoint: Azure InfoHub doesn't store any personal data about its visitors. Simple reason for this: we don't care about who you are, where you're coming from or anything else about you. This service is provided as an information platform and not a tool to generate user data. This is the reason why there is no personalized content on Azure InfoHub.

Azure InfoHub Cookie Policy

  • Azure InfoHub sets one Cookie containing the date of your last visit. This information is used to display the little red "new"-icons next to content that was updated since your last visit.
  • Azure InfoHub uses App Insights to collect anonymized data regarding online behavior of its users (analyze web traffic, web pages accessed). The data Azure InfoHub collects by using cookies is only used for statistical analysis, and is completely removed after analysis.

If you want to disable cookies, you can do it by accessing the settings of your internet browser. You'll still be able to use Azure InfoHub without restrictions.
