Learn Markdown language for SQL Notebooks in Azure Data Studio February 26, 2020 by Rajendra Gupta Microsoft supports SQL Notebooks in Azure Data Studio. It is an exciting feature that allows creating a notebook for multiple languages such as Python, SQL, PowerShell. The main way of creating tables in Azure Wiki is Markdown table, and from what I found is that Markdown does not support color.Maybe there is any trick? From Azure Wiki Syntax Help I found out that HTML tags and YAML tables are also supported, but everything that I was able to achieve is coloring via span tag inside markdown.

Was Azure down? This was the reaction of Nasuni customers to the recentazureoutage . To be honest, I am speculating as to their reaction because we did not log a single support incident as a result of the outage. This despite the fact that The Nasuni Service uses Azure to provide management services and many of our customers have their cloud data stored in Azure. The Nasuni Service was architected from its inception a decade ago to be a platform that uses cloud for consolidated file data storage, and thus was architected to be resilient to intermittent cloud and Internet connectivity failures.

With The Nasuni Service, files are accessed locally via Nasuni Filers, which provide a cache for active data. Even if Internet access or cloud storage is unavailable, files remain accessible. When snapshots are sent to cloud storage, they can be queued for later transmission if it is not available. This process is completely transparent to users, who continue to access data at local performance levels regardless of cloud storage availability. In addition, Nasuni Filers can be configured to pin data to the local cache with granularity to the folder level. This means that critical data, like the CEO’s home directory, can always be available locally on the Filer.

Management with The Nasuni Service is similarly resilient. Communications between the Nasuni Management Console (NMC) and Filers take advantage of a scalable hub and spoke model using the cloud as a reliable message transport. If a target Filer is down, messages are queued until it becomes available, and the same is true if cloud service is unavailable. If changes to a specific Filer are required and connectivity is not available, each filer has complete local management interface.

The Nasuni Service includes backup and DR. If a Nasuni Filer becomes unavailable in a disaster, a new one can be brought up in a matter of minutes in a location with access to the cloud data store, and the entire configuration, including pinning, is recreated automatically using the Nasuni Operations Center (NOC). Since the data can be infinitely versioned in the cloud, files, directories or whole volumes can be immediately restored to any point in time.

In addition, The Nasuni Service has the capability for optional cloudmirroring for those with extreme availability requirements for access to the portion of their cloud data that might not be cached. Customers rarely opt for this once they fully understand the resilience Nasuni provides without it.

The recent Azure outage has shown the advantage of The Nasuni Service model. The combination of the system’s architecture, local file access, cloud storage and proactive management and support create a highly resilient storage platform. So if nobody notices, was Azure really down? Yes, Azure was down, but Nasuni’s customers were not.

Azure Markdown-->

You can add a markdown tile to your Azure dashboards to display custom, static content. For example, you can show basic instructions, an image, or a set of hyperlinks on a markdown tile.

Add a markdown tile to your dashboard

  1. Select Dashboard from the Azure portal sidebar.

  2. In the dashboard view, select the dashboard where the custom markdown tile should appear, then select Edit.

  3. In the Tile Gallery, locate the tile called Markdown and select Add. The tile is added to the dashboard and the Edit Markdown pane opens.

  4. Enter values for Title and Subtitle, which display on the tile after you move to another field.

  5. Select one of the options for including markdown content: Inline editing or Insert content using URL.

    • Select Inline editing if you want to enter markdown directly.

    • Select Insert content using URL if you want to use existing markdown content that's hosted online.


      For added security, you can create a markdown file and store it in an Azure storage account blob where encryption is enabled, then point to the file using the URL option. The markdown content is encrypted through the storage account's encryption options. Only users with permissions to the file can see the markdown content on the dashboard. You might need to set a cross-origin resource sharing (CORS) rule on the storage account so that the Azure portal ( can access the markdown file in the blob.

  6. Select Done to dismiss the Edit Markdown pane. Your content appears on the Markdown tile, which you can resize by dragging the handle in the lower right-hand corner.

Markdown content capabilities and limitations

You can use any combination of plain text, Markdown syntax, and HTML content on the markdown tile. The Azure portal uses an open-source library called marked to transform your content into HTML that is shown on the tile. The HTML produced by marked is pre-processed by the portal before it's rendered. This step helps make sure that your customization won't affect the security or layout of the portal. During that pre-processing, any part of the HTML that poses a potential threat is removed. The following types of content aren't allowed by the portal:

  • JavaScript – <script> tags and inline JavaScript evaluations are removed.
  • iframes - <iframe> tags are removed.
  • Style - <style> tags are removed. Inline style attributes on HTML elements aren't officially supported. You may find that some inline style elements work for you, but if they interfere with the layout of the portal, they could stop working at any time. The Markdown tile is intended for basic, static content that uses the default styles of the portal.
