Microsoft has stepped-up it's documentation game over the last 5 years.
Additional advantages of region pairs/geographies:
Group items around their function, like web, or database. You can also use a single resource group if you choose.
If you delete a resource group, all resources contained within it are also deleted. Resource groups make it easy to remove a set of resources all at once. Good for non-production environments/dev/test setups.
Resource groups are also a scope for applying role-based access control (RBAC) permissions. (Ease of administration.)
Organize invoice sections by subscriptions
Create management hierarchy using
Azure Management Groups
(When you have lots of subscriptions)
If you are growing talent internally for technical roles, make sure you give them time for ongoing skills development.
Maybe one day. For now, we need IIS.
Newer versions of .NET framework include better and better support for hosting web applications using Azure's App Services or on Linux servers using nginx/Apache.
Microsoft SQL Server on VM
My current recommendations for application high-availability:
Genesis is an Ubuntu-linux based environment that leverages Asterisk open-source telecom engine to provide widely supported telephony to Intelligent Series.
How does failover even work with Linux, Genesis, and SIP?
Use a VIP to manually move traffic between your primary and backup Genesis servers.
(use Standard SKU for availability zone support)
Standard HDD was the original storage offering on Azure and offers cost-effective storage for non-I/O intensive workloads.
Standard SSDs do offer guaranteed performance levels where the Standard HDD disks do not.
Premium SSD is the most commonly used type of disk for SQL Server workloads.
Ultra SSD provides the lowest latency (submillisecond) and the highest potential IOPs.
TempDB can optionally go into its own pool, or using the VM’s temporary disk, which offers low latency since it is physically attached to the physical server where the VMs are running.
Properly configured Premium SSD will see latency in single digit milliseconds.
A single VM's high-availability SLA
It's unlikely you will be using this due to the cost...

SQL Server support through open-source Postgres database

When Amtelco makes the jump to .NET CORE, we should be able to start using Azure App Services for serverless hosting.
