Connect to space satellites around the world and bring earth observational data into Azure for analytics via Microsoft and partner ground stations.

Apoorva Nori, from the Azure Space team, joins host Jeremy Chapman to take a first look at the Azure Orbital preview. We’ll show you how it works and how it fits into Microsoft’s strategy with Azure Space to bring cloud connectivity everywhere on earth and to make space satellite data accessible for everyday use cases.

Azure Space marks the convergence between global satellite constellations and the cloud. As the two join together, our purpose is to bring cloud connectivity to even the most remote corners of the earth and connect to satellites and harness the vast amount of data collected from space. This can help solve both long-term trending issues affecting the earth like climate change, or short-term real-time issues such as connected agriculture, monitoring and controlling wildfires, or identifying supply chain bottlenecks.

Continue using your Internet Explorer dependent sites and web apps, as an individual user or at scale, using IE mode with cloud-managed Microsoft Edge site list for Microsoft 365.

Support for Internet Explorer will end in most versions of Windows 10 as of June 15th, 2022. Microsoft Edge includes IE mode for your IE dependent sites, so you can open them just as you would in Internet Explorer without leaving the Edge browser, and continue using these apps until at least 2029.

Join host Jeremy Chapman as he walks you through the transition to the modern Edge browser.

If you're new to Microsoft Edge as a modern browser, it brings productivity as well as privacy and multiple security options built on the Chromium engine. It's designed for performance and compatibility with current web standards. And importantly, Microsoft Edge is built with a dual engine advantage for compatibility with existing IE dependent sites that you use every day.
