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.

Cloud Computing

Cloud computing is classifed as a kind of computing which based on sharing computing resources rather than having local server or personal devices which can manage applications. Cloud computing is a technology which employs the internet and central remote servers to maintain data and applications.

Cloud computing facilitates business and consumers to use applications without installing and accessing their personal files at any computer with just internet access. With this technology computing can be much more efficient by centralizing data storage, processing and bandwidth.

In a very simple term Cloud computing involves delivering hosted services over the internet. These services divided under three categories,

  1. Infrastructure – as- a- Service (IaaS)
  2. Platform – as – a – Service (PaaS)
  3. Software – as – a – Service (SaaS)

Cloud computing is nothing but delivering hosted services over the internet.

Cloud computing, the word “Cloud” narrates as  image for “the internet”, so the phrase cloud computing means, “ a category of internet-based computing”, where special services – like servers and storage and application – are distributed to an organization’s and devices through the internet.

Functioning of Cloud Computing:

The main objective of cloud computing is to manage traditional or high-performance computing power, which generally used by military and research facilities, to execute consumer-oriented applications like financial portfolios, to deliver personalized information, to facilitates data storage or power large, immersive online computer games.

To perform these tasks, cloud computing uses network of large group of servers which typically rus on low – cost consumer PC technology with specialized connections to spread data processing chores across them. This shared IT infrastructure contains large pools of system which are connected together. Very frequently, Virtualization techniques are used to maximize the power of cloud computing.

Cloud computing assures numerous attractive benefits for business and end users. Three of them cloud computing benefits which are excellent are,

Self- service provisioning: End users can twist up computing capital for the almost any type of workload as per the demand.

Elasticity: companies or business organization can increase computing or reduce computing demand as per the demand.

Payment as per the use: computing resources  measures at a rough level, where users need to pay only for the resources and workloads they use.

Architecture of Cloud Computing

In the conversation of Cloud computing system, it will be easier to divide it into two sections: the front end and the back end. Both the ends connected with each other through a network, mostly the Internet.  The front end is the user of computer or client and the back end is the “cloud” section of the system.

The front end contains the client’s computer or can say computer network and the application which required accessing the cloud computing system. All cloud computing systems are not necessarily same user interface. Services such as Web-based email programs controls existing web browsers like Internet Explores or Firefox.
