Azure Cloud Services

Microsoft Azure cloud offerings fall into three main categories: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS).

Microsoft Azure Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
This is the most basic Microsoft Azure offering, which gives you a hosting server in the cloud. Opting for this service, gives you full control over the virtual machine, and responsible for managing everything from the operating system up to the application you would be running.
Microsoft Azure Platform as a Service (PaaS)
This service level also provides an operating system, a database, a web server, an environment for executing your code, and additional services such as identity management. By choosing PaaS for your project needs, Microsoft Azure Cloud Service puts up with all the tedious operating system details for you, so you can focus all your energy on what really matters to you.
Microsoft Azure Software as a Service (SaaS)
Level where applications are built and hosted through third-party vendors that usually charge for a certain amount of service – Microsoft Office 365 is one such example. Today, most SaaS applications are built on a cloud platform due to the low cost of entry and the ability to scale up as your customer base grows.
Azure Business Benefits
  • Ability to Scale on Demand

    It can be hard to predict how your business will grow, or when you will require extra resources for short term 'bursts' of traffic or transaction volume. Increased growth or other demands often demands running applications with high load, or additional applications that most traditional hosting models cannot handle. So, it's a big advantage that Azure was built to scale alongside your business. One way Azure does this is by loading your applications as a cluster that allocates a web application to a specific set of processes. The result is that all your applications are not forced to run off a single server and you will thus never run out of server capacity. As a bonus, Azure can even be managed to auto scale based on load or schedule.

  • Flexibility

    In the quickly evolving technology sector you need a hosting solution that can quickly evolve as your needs change. Azure is simple to adapt and offers a host of application building blocks and services that will allow you to customize the cloud as needed.

  • Cost Competitive

    With Microsoft’s huge customer base, they have been able to pass volume discounts on to their customers. And it's a good bet that Azure costs keeps going down as the competition heats up with AWS and Google. Additionally, Azure works off a pay-as-you-go model, which reduces the upfront costs.

  • Customer support

    Microsoft currently operates more than 200 datacenters located in 34 countries worldwide, networked with more than 165,000 miles of subsea cable. Azure infrastructure in multiple data center regions in the US, Europe, China, Africa, Asia, and the Pacific. Microsoft Azure offer support 24/7.

  • Hybrid Capability

    Unlike AWS’s cloud only approach, Microsoft Window Azure provides you with the ability to create hybrid environments, allowing you to leverage your on-premise resources and the benefits of the cloud without costly workarounds. With Azure you can also build hybrid applications.

Azure Data Benefits
  • Simple and Reliable Data Storage

    Azure allows you to store any type of data, whether it is file data, structured data sets or queries in a reliable and fast environment and share it across VMs using the industry standard SMB 2.1 protocol. It’s easy to manage using an import/export feature to move data as desired.

  • Keeping your Data Secure

    Azure was built based on the Microsoft Security Development Lifecycle, a cutting edge approach for developing the most secure code based on proven technology and tested around the globe.

  • Backups you can rely on

    Azure backs up 6 copies of your data across two separate Azure data centers, which means they can guarantee 99.9% availability of backups. Azure Site Recovery is very powerful.

  • Big Data insights

    Microsoft Azure HDinsight service brings an Apache Hadoop solution to the cloud. While that might sound like complicated at first, the service is powerful, allowing you to handle and analyses any amount of data at a time. Additionally, it integrates with Excel allowing you to visualize your data in new ways to help you uncover business insights to help you succeed. There are more and more options for BI being added regularly as the demand increases.

  • Integrative Data Solution

    Azure seamlessly integrates data across the full line of Microsoft SaaS and PaaS offerings. This includes the Azure package such as Visual Studio, Active Directory, System Center and PowerShell, as well as Microsoft software such as Office 365 and Microsoft Dynamics solutions, Dynamics ERP (including NAV on Azure) and more. This allows you to do more with your ERP, CRM and other business data in a scalable environment that is faster and more reliable.

Azure Management Benefits
  • Automation

    Azure Automation allows you to automate tasks in your Azure environment. By creating workflows called “runbooks”, you can eliminate the time spent on monitoring and maintaining the resources in your cloud environment, lowering overhead costs, and allowing you to focus on value added business work.

  • API Management

    If you create and run a variety of APIs, Azure API management allows you to publish APIs to your market (employees, customers) securely and at scale.

  • "Set it and forget it" scheduling

    Microsoft Azure allows you to create jobs on simple or complex recurring schedules. If you have recurring actions such as cleaning up logs, application maintenance or pulling data from an API or feed, Azure’s scheduler can automate those tasks for you at a scheduled time. Additionally, Azure gives you the ability to create actions that call HTTP or HTTPS endpoints or post messages to a storage queue for long running or offline jobs.

  • Ability to Run Virtual Machines

    With Azure you can deploy premium virtual machines in minutes including Linux and Windows servers. Attach premium storage to your virtual machine and begin running 32 TB and achieve 50,000 IOPS (input/output operations per second).

  • Developer Collaboration and Options

    Azure comes with Visual Studio Online and Application Insights, which provides enhanced collaboration between your dev teams in an integrative environment. Additionally, Azure provides the option to create new applications in ASP,, PHP, Python, or Node.js, so you are not limited to Visual Studio if you so choose.

  • Azure Storage Reserved Capacity

    Azure Storage Reserved Capacity helps you lower your data storage cost by committing to one-year or three-years of Azure Storage. Reserved capacity can be purchased in increments of 100 TB and 1 PB sizes.
