Cloud

The Windows Azure technology platform serves as the Microsoft cloud services development, hosting, and management environment. Windows Azure provides on-demand compute, storage, networking, and content delivery capabilities through Microsoft data centers. It automates system management tasks, allowing developers to focus on application development. As a result, it enables faster-to-market and lowers ongoing application maintenance cost. It also enables hybrid solutions that integrate cloud services with on-premises resources.

 

Windows Azure cloud applications can target businesses, consumers, or both. For example:

  • Enterprises can use Windows Azure to run their own line-of-business, batch processing, or large-volume computations.
  • An independent software vendor (ISV) can creates a software as a service (SaaS) application targeting business users or consumers.

 

To build applications and services on Windows Azure, developers can use their Microsoft Visual Studio development system expertise. In addition, Windows Azure supports popular standards, protocols and languages including SOAP, REST, XML, Java, PHP, and Ruby.

Top benefits of Windows Azure:

  •  Agility—with development tools, automated service management, and global data center presence to respond faster to customer needs, focus on your competitive differentiators, and reach new markets.
  • Efficiency—with productivity and operational efficiency improvements through lower up-front capital costs. Total cost of operations can drop 30–40 percent over a three-year period in some cases.
  • Focus—on delivering services and value to your customers rather than managing technology infrastructure. Spend more time building your competitive differentiators.
  • Simplicity—with familiar languages such as Microsoft .NET, Java, and PHP for creating and managing web applications and services.
  • Trustworthiness—with enterprise-class service backed by reliable service level agreements and a rich online services experience.
