Azure Virtualization RRS feed

  • Question

  • From: Hamlet Shakespeare (@shakespeareham9) via Twitter

    Can the Azure virtualization technology be used to provide a development desktop for a freelance dev resource to use that would prevent source code from being electronically copied outside of the Azure environment?

  • Hello,

    Could you please elaborate your question, so that we can assist you better!

    1)Are you asking about creating a VM ?

    2) And then asking if someone who has access to the VM can copy data from the VM?

  • What I am trying setup is an environment where freelance development resources go...a VM desktop possibly...on that VM is everything they need for the software development project including the connection to the internet server(IIS), database server(SQL Server), source code server, etc...

    So, I would see them logging into the VM from their PC at home. Working on the VM all day, connecting to the app servers as needed to get their software dev efforts completed from the VM. Then logging of the VM at the end of the day never having been able to copy any of the files/code accessible from the VM down onto their local PC at home... Just an effort to prevent custom code piracy.

    Kind Regards,

  • Hello,

    In VM we cannot restrict the users.

    It depends upon the what application you are using to execute the source code. The application you can give source control access.

    Example: If your application like visual studio to run your source code, you can Control Access to Team Foundation Version Control and set permissions for users or groups

    Thanks & Regards
