By creating a cloud service, you can deploy a multi-tier web application in Azure, defining multiple roles to distribute processing and allow flexible scaling of your application. A cloud service comprises of one or more web roles, each with its own application files and configuration. Azure Websites and Virtual Machines also enable web applications on Azure. One of the main advantages of cloud services is the ability to support more complex multi-tier architectures.
Microsoft offers secure azure cloud services to the user. The benefit which Azure offers over others is cross-platform support. You can adopt an Azure cloud system into your organization without disturbing the existing applications. Azure represents an overall IaaS and PaaS cloud solution that is fully integrated with Microsoft’s Office 365. SaaS offers so truly a one-stop shop for integrated services.
For a very long set of things:
Azure and AWS offer similar IaaS capabilities for virtual machines, networking, and storage. However, Azure provides stronger PaaS capabilities, a vital piece of Cloud infrastructure today.
Microsoft Azure PaaS provides application developers with the environment, tools, and building blocks they need to quickly build and deploy new cloud services. It also gives the important ‘dev-ops’ connections which are important for monitoring, managing, and continually fine-tuning those applications. With Azure PaaS, much of the infrastructure management is taken care of by Microsoft. Thus, developing Azure PaaS solutions allow for a 100% focus on innovation.
Microsoft was the first Cloud vendor approved by the European Union’s data protection authorities. They were also the first to embrace the new international standard for Cloud privacy, ISO 27018. Thus, Microsoft ensures the best in terms of safety and security for all operations and data on Azure. Azure has been designed based on the Security Development Life cycle, an industry leading assurance process. It comprises security at its core, and private data and services stay protected and secured while on Azure Cloud.
Azure already has its hybrid capabilities in place. It constantly connects data centers to the Cloud. Azure gives a consistent platform that facilities simple mobility between on-premises and the public cloud.
Unlike AWS, hybrid apps can be created on Azure which can take benefit of the resources accessible within data centers, at the organization service provider’s end, or within Azure itself. It also gives a broader range of hybrid connections, including VPNs, caches, content delivery networks (CDNs), and ExpressRoute connections, to improve usability and performance.
