What is Azure?
“Windows Azure can be anything you want it to be”
Microsoft provides a wide range of different cloud platform service, among them Windows Azure can build, deploy, and manage solutions for almost any purpose. In other words, it is a world of unlimited possibilities; Windows Azure can provide a platform for building applications that can provide a platform to use the cloud to meet the needs of your business.
“Windows Azure is an open and flexible cloud platform that enables you to quickly build, deploy, and manage applications across a global network of Microsoft-managed datacenters. You can build applications using any language, tool, or framework. And you can integrate your public cloud applications with your existing IT environment”
What is cloud computing?
In present days Cloud computing plays a key role in It Industry. Cloud could compute is service utilized by organizations through the internet with pay-as-you-go pricing. Cloud compute provide Services like database storage, applications, and other IT resources. It reduces total investment on hardware. It improves the performance of the hardware by reducing the burden on hardware. We can access data from anywhere and at any time through the internet. Cloud computing provides a simple way to access storage, servers, databases and a broad set of application services over the Internet. A cloud services platform such as Amazon Web Services owns and maintains the network-connected hardware required for these application services, while you provision and use what you need via a web application.
Cloud offering Cloud computing usually is classified into three categories: SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS.
SaaS: Software as a Service
SaaS is software that is centrally hosted and managed for the end customer. It usually is based on a multitenant architecture, a single version of the application is used for all customers. It can be scaled out to multiple instances to ensure the best performance in all locations. SaaS software typically is licensed through a monthly or annual subscription. Office 365 is a prototypical model of a SaaS offering. Subscribers pay a monthly or annual subscription fee, and they get Exchange as a Service (online and/or desktop Outlook), Storage as a Service (OneDrive), and the rest of the Microsoft Office Suite (online, the desktop version, or both). Subscribers are always provided the most recent version. This essentially allows you to have a Microsoft Exchange server without having to purchase a server and install and support Exchange—the Exchange server is managed for you, including software patches and updates. Compared to installing and upgrading Office every year, this is much less expensive and requires much less effort to keep updated.
Other examples of SaaS include Microsoft One Drive, Dropbox, WordPress, and Amazon Kindle.
PaaS: Platform as a Service
With PaaS, you deploy your application into an application-hosting environment provided by the cloud service vendor. The developer provides the application, and the PaaS vendor provides the ability to deploy and run it. This frees up developers from infrastructure management, allowing them to focus strictly on development. Azure provides several PaaS compute offerings, including Azure Websites and Azure Cloud Services (web and worker roles). In either case, developers have multiple ways to deploy their application without knowing anything about the nuts and bolts supporting it. Developers don’t have to create VMs, use Remote Desktop (RDP) to log into each one and install the application. They just hit a button (or pretty close to it), and the tools provided by Microsoft provision the VMs and then deploy and install the application on them. Scaling out an Azure compute service generally is as simple as incrementing the instance count, at which point Azure deploys new VMs and deploys the software on them. Azure even handles the load balancing automatically. To deploy a new version, you just republish, and Azure updates all of the VMs for you.
IaaS: Infrastructure as a Service
An IaaS cloud vendor runs and manages server farms running virtualization software, It offers you to create VMs that run on the vendor’s infrastructure. Depending on the vendor, you can create a VM running various operating systems Windows or Linux and install anything you want on it. Azure also provides the ability to set up virtual networks, load balancers, and storage and to use many other services that run on its infrastructure. You don’t have control over the hardware or virtualization software, but you do have control over most everything else. In fact, unlike PaaS, you are completely responsible for it. Azure Virtual Machines, the Azure IaaS offering, is a popular choice when migrating services to Azure because it provides a path to the lift and shift‖ model for migration. You can configure a VM similar to the infrastructure currently running your services in your data center and migrate your software to the new VM. You might need to make tweaks, such as URLs to other services or storage, but many applications can be migrated in this manner.
Azure includes many services on its cloud computing platform. Let’s talk about a few of them.
Compute services: This includes the Microsoft Azure Cloud Services (web and worker roles), Azure Virtual Machines, Azure Websites, and Azure Mobile Services.
Data services: This includes Microsoft Azure Storage (comprised of the Blob, Queue, Table, and Azure Files services), Azure SQL Database, and the Redis Cache.
Application services: This includes services that you can use to help build and operate your applications, such as the Azure Active Directory, Service Bus for connecting distributed systems, HDInsight for processing big data, the Azure Scheduler, and Azure Media Services.
Network services: This includes Azure features such as Virtual Networks, the Azure Content Delivery Network, and the Azure Traffic Manager.
Why will we learn AZURE?
Azure has below features
Open: Windows Azure provides a set of cloud services that allow you to build and deploy cloud-based applications using almost any programming language, framework, or tool.
Flexible: Windows Azure provides a wide range of cloud services that can let you do everything from hosting your company’s website to running big SQL databases in the cloud. It also includes different features that can help deliver high performance and low latency for cloud-based applications.
Microsoft-managed: Windows Azure services are currently hosted in several data centers spread across the United States, Europe, and Asia. These data centers are managed by Microsoft and provide expert global support on a 24x7x365 basis.
Compatible: Cloud applications running on Windows Azure can easily be integrated with on-premises IT environments that utilize the Microsoft Windows Server platform.
