Azure Cloud

What is Cloud?

Cloud computing is an information technology (IT) paradigm that enables ubiquitous access to shared pools of configurable system resources and higher-level services that can be rapidly provisioned with minimal management effort, often over the Internet. Cloud computing relies on sharing of resources to achieve coherence and economies of scale, similar to a public utility.

Third-party clouds enable organizations to focus on their core businesses instead of expending resources on computer infrastructure and maintenance. Advocates note that cloud computing allows companies to avoid or minimize up-front IT infrastructure costs. Proponents also claim that cloud computing allows enterprises to get their applications up and running faster, with improved manageability and less maintenance, and that it enables IT teams to more rapidly adjust resources to meet fluctuating and unpredictable demand. Cloud providers typically use a “pay-as-you-go” model, which can lead to unexpected operating expenses if administrators are not familiarized with cloud-pricing models.

Introduction to Azure

 

Azure_Logo

 

Microsoft Azure, formerly known as Windows Azure, is Microsoft’s public cloud computing platform. It provides a range of cloud services, including those for compute, analytics, storage and networking. Users can pick and choose from these services to develop and scale new applications, or run existing applications, in the public cloud.

The above checked boxes are those services which are managed by the cloud service providers.

And those which unchecked are those services which you will have to be handled by you or your IT Manager.

 

Why to consider cloud?

  1. Speed to deliver new services.
  2. Scale from 30,000 to 250,000 site visitors instantly.
  3. The on-premises service will cost approximately $100,000

 

Azure Import/Export Service

Fast, secured, large data migration to the cloud.

Transferring large volumes of data over a network can take days, weeks or even months. Avoid the hassle and ship your physical disks directly to Azure—we will upload them for you. Take advantage of the Azure Import/Export service for Azure Storage and accelerate your cloud transition.

 

Why Azure Import/Export?

Efficiently migrate large data sets

Save time and money, compared to network transfer, by shipping physical disks to and from Azure. Import large amounts of initial workload data to Azure or quickly send data to your customer sites for simple content distribution. Create backups of your on-premises data to store in the cloud and then recover data to your on-premises location if needed.

Keep data private

When using the Import/Export service, your data is highly-secured every step of the way. Disks are encrypted using Microsoft BitLocker drive encryption and your encryption keys are managed on the Azure portal or Azure REST API over SSL. In the Datacenter, we migrate your data from drive to cloud using a fast, private network upload link.

Ensure data integrity

Use the Import/Export service to migrate your data with confidence. Built-in checksums and an MD5 hash ensure data integrity. Track and monitor the status of your data migration through logs and audit trails on the Azure portal.

What are the benefits of cloud computing?

Cost: It eliminates the cloud capital expense.

Speed: Since cloud computing services are self-services and on demand on few mouse clicks, it provides a lot of flexibility and takes the pressure off capacity planning.

Global Scale: It has the ability to scale elastically from the right geographic location.

Productivity: The IT team gets more time for important business goals.

Performance: It can scale up-down & in-out on the fly as per the requirement

Reliability: Cloud computing makes data backup, DR and business continuity easier and less expensive.
