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.
