The obvious solution (add more physical storage) is usually easier said than done. Here are some short-term fixes that can buy you some time -- and reveal some pockets of spare storage you might not know you had.
Microsoft experts on Windows and Azure responded to a few questions post-Build about how the company has been simplifying the developer experience, from spinning up containers to tapping microservices.
If you're familiar with how to access a USB device from inside a VMware environment, be aware -- the process isn't quite as seamless as it is in Hyper-V. Here's how to do it in Hyper-V at the host and client levels.
Red Hat and Microsoft offered a progress report on their collaboration efforts this week and promised to deliver a preview of Red Hat OpenShift on Azure "in the coming months."
Microsoft announced during this week's Build Conference that its Azure Kubernetes Service, formerly known as "managed Kubernetes on Azure," will reach general availability status "in the next few weeks."

Microsoft published documentation on Wednesday showing how to deploy a new browser-based Remote Desktop Web Client that's available for testing at the preview stage.
The goal of IT infrastructure and application monitoring solutions must be more than to provide insight into IT operations. Here's what to look for.
Some of these assumptions are perfectly valid for most situations, but others -- despite Microsoft's best intentions -- are a bit more puzzling.
The Azure Migrate tool can now be used by organizations to help plan moves of their on-premises virtual machines and applications to Azure datacenter infrastructure.
It's not 2008 anymore; go ahead and virtualize all of your domain controllers.
Brien walks through the steps of troubleshooting a (very) slow Windows 10 virtual machine. Hint: Disable your virtual memory at your own risk.
Microsoft today announced the "general availability" of its Accelerated Networking technology for Azure virtual machines, which is available for use with both Linux- and Windows-based VMs.
VMware isn't planning to work directly with Microsoft on the technical details of its emerging VMware virtualization on Azure solution, but the company has dropped some of its initially condemnatory language about it.
According to Brien's take on the Microsoft tea leaves, the year ahead should bode well for Hyper-V and Azure customers. On the other hand, Windows 10 S users may want to brace themselves.
