Microsoft as an Application Platform-as-a-Service Leader to mechanize the configuration, deployment and ongoing management of application in the cloud with Azure PaaS

For many cloud services Azure PaaS is the right choice for many cloud users. Platform as a service (PaaS) is a main key Azure Component, which is useful for buyers and profitable for sellers. Microsoft Azure and Windows Server applications are finally symbiotic as well. The major goal of Microsoft Azure and Windows Server is to make Azure cloud hosted by Windows Server alternative or supplement which means Azure delivers PaaS feature to applications.

A user with Windows Server applications, Azure reinstates both the hardware and platform software. Hence, Azure relocates software licensing charges as well as maintenance costs.

PaaS is Azure’s best feature and clearest differentiator. Additionally, to limit cloud costs, PaaS facilitates hybrid cloud operation. To make this, PaaS facilitates a complete cloud software and hardware platform for applications compatible with Microsoft’s on-premises tools. Azure recommends cloud-friendly implementations on well- accepted server APIs for service such as SharePoint. As Microsoft controls the data centre version of the same APIs, it can create flexibility and hybridization into the cloud and data center.

Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) allows IT department to concentrate efforts on their custom applications, not the platform they run on. With the Windows Azure, organization’s IT team can develop custom solutions and manage design, development and deployment, exclusive of the need to purchase and manage the server hardware, software, storage, security or networks which is used to deliver the solution.

Bitscape is a premier partner with Microsoft where Bitscape customer will receive a license to take advantage of Microsoft Azure’s IaaS solution. As of now Bitscape supports Azure’s Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offering, the latest announcement provides the creation of hybrid cloud infrastructure by promoting Bitscape customers to consider Azure to power the infrastructure which undergirds its PaaS infrastructure .

As time goes Windows Azure has established and more and more organizations start looking at Azure to solve some of their needs.

PaaS benefits are more than grid computing fulfillment. Microsoft controls middleware in Azure and Windows Server, ensuring on-premises programs can take full advantage of cloud.

Clients of Bitscape have profited from this service model. If you would like to discover potential for your organization contact us to schedule a consultation.

Microsoft Azure Site recovery: an exceptional destination for disaster recovery and to defend physical server

Azure Site Recovery assists you to protect important applications by coordinating the imitation and recovery of physical or virtual machines. Your organization can replicate to your own data centre, to a hosting service provider or even to Azure to avoid the expense and complexity of building and managing your own secondary location.

Azure Site Recovery adds to your business continuity and disaster recovery strategy by coordinating replication, failover and recovery of virtual machines in a number of deployment scenario.

Azure Site Recovery assists to protect the critical applications running in your datacenter with flexible recovery plans. Microsoft Azure Site Recovery is a Microsoft Azure service that will enable failover for on-premises Hyper-Virtual machines.

Azure Site Recovery is secure. It neither captures your application data nor has any information about what is running inside your virtual machines. Internet connectivity is not needed either from the Hyper-V hosts or the virtual machines.

As replication is between your own enterprise and service provide sites, no application data is sent to Azure. Only metadata, like VM or cloud names, that is needed to coordinate failover, is sent to Azure.

Your all data is stored in “YOUR” storage account on top of the world class geo-redundant storage provided by Azure.

Earlier Azure Site Recovery was known as Hyper-V Recovery Manager. New capabilities will facilitate customers to replicate VMs from their own data centers directly to Azure and coordinate the recovery of workloads in a cloud computing environment.

The highlighted features of Azure Site Recovery:

  • Simplify – Site Recovery ,facilitates your business continuity and disaster recovery by making it easy to configure replication and run failover and recovery for you on-premises workloads and applications.
  • Replication – you can replicate on-premises workloads to Azure storage, or to a secondary datacenter.
  • Vault – to manage duplication you can set up a Site Recovery Vault in an Azure region you select. All metadata remains within that region.
  • Metadata- no application data is sent to Azure. Site recovery only requires metadata such as virtual machine and VMM cloud means, in order to coordinate replication and failover.
  • Connection to Azure – management servers communicate with Azure depending on your deployment scenario. For example if your organization is replicating virtual machines located in an on premises VMM cloud, the VMM server communicates with Site Recovery over an encrypted outbound  HTTPS connection. No connection is needed from the virtual machines or Hyper-V hosts.

Bitscape Azure Platform Services guides your organization to plan your Azure Application planning strategy and consulting services.

Microsoft Azure applies a specialized operating system, which is known as Microsoft Azure, to run its “fabric layer”.

Microsoft Azure is an open and flexible cloud platform which facilitates the quick build, deployment and management of application across a global network of Microsoft –managed datacenters.

Windows Azure : it is a cloud-computing infrastructure and platform which is known as Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) for creating, deploying and managing applications through a global network of Microsoft- managed datacenters. It is a service from Microsoft allowing companies to host their applications in the Cloud so they don’t require purchasing or managing their own servers.

Advantages with Windows Azure:

  • Fund savings and Quick Scalability – with the Windows Azure, companies need to pay for the resources which their applications are using. Whether a company requires increasing its number of users or its data storage, for example, Microsoft can simply adjust their rate, making it extremely convenient and scalable. With this “pay-as-you-go” approach, business only pay for the amount of space which they need, instead of having to pay for the empty storage at the maximum amount which they may never use. Further, companies using Windows Azure need not to buy, manage, administer performance maintenance, configure hardware and operating system, and pay the electricity costs for their own machines, lot of savings of time and money.
  • Trustworthy – in addition to cost savings and quick scalability, another most awesome advantage of Windows Azure and Iaas/PaaS model is its trustworthiness. Windows services are offered from cloud data centers which have multiple built-in redundancies. If company’s one server crashes then a company’s applications will automatically run on another server in the data centre.
  • Simple and easy upgrades: Microsoft Azure supports many different programming languages, tools and frameworks, including both Microsoft-specific and third party software and system. Latest application upgrade can be easily added.

Bitscape Azure consultants can assist your organization to determine whether Microsoft Azure is the model for your business – working with you to identify your requirement for a successful move into the cloud.

 

Azure Cloud – move towards shaping the IaaS lines with Microsoft technology.

Bitscape is a partner of Microsoft Azure. We can assist you to plan and deploy efficient migration onto various Microsoft cloud services. Microsoft is accessible as both Platform-as-a –Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS)

Infrastructure- as-a-Service – Microsoft Azure recommends Virtualization through its mature Hyper-V technology. For the Microsoft Azure projects, we have been noticed that small organizations can benefit from the economies of scale. While in the case of large scale implementations, we have observed that cloud services like Microsoft Azure allow companies to cut their IT “Maintenance” and increase their productivity.

Features of Windows Azure IaaS include:

  • Extremely available and scalable.
  • Complete SQL Server functionality.
  • Capability Hybrid service and application infrastructure.
  • Strong health metrics dashboards.
  • Enterprise grade support.

Windows Azure IaaS is well managed compute service which provides complete control of the OS and the application platform stack to the application developers and IT Professional which is analogous to Hyper-V and other virtualization platforms. The element of deployment is at the granularity of a virtual machine. Your organization can deploy virtual machines for the development with the help of IT Professionals.  Although developers get complete control of the stack at the time of design, still the deployment needs to consider the systematic qualities of the application influenced by the storage, virtual networking and managed services ecosystem which surrounds it. While IaaS provides design time portability, in meantime the application may take advantage of the managed services which will impact its overall portability.

The powerful capability of IaaS facilitates your business access to:

  • On-demand infrastructure which scales and adapts to your changing business needs.
  • Deployment, development and scaling options for any web application.
  • Provide fast and easy way to create mobile apps.
  • The capability to develop and test application faster, at lower cost, with the flexibility to deploy as per requirement.
  • Durable cloud storage, backup, scalable and recovery solutions for any data.
