  • 3. What is Cloud Computing?
    What is a Cloud?
    A cloud is a set of connected servers.
    This model represents how computers and devices are connected and sharing information, forming the concept of the “cloud”.
  • 4. Cloud Computing Cont.
    What is Cloud Computing?
    In General:
    An Internet based computing environment where you pay only for resources that you use.
    A set of pooled computing resources delivered over the Internet.
    Mainly, instead of data being stored locally on a hard drive, the data is instead located on a server somewhere off site.
    Cloud Computing is the next phase in the evolution of computing
  • 5. Cloud Computing Cont.
    But who spans and controls those connected servers or devices in the cloud
    ?
  • 6. What is Windows Azure?
    It is a cloud operating system on which developers can build using .NET, Java, Ruby on Rails, Python and other languages.
    Focus on your application, not the infrastructure.
    Actually, Windows Azure helps developers build, host and scale web applications through Microsoft datacenters.
  • 7. More On Windows Azure?
    It is designed for utility computing.
    It provides facilities to:
    Write your apps (developer experience)
    Host your apps (compute)
    Manage your apps (service management)
    Store your data (storage)
  • 8. What is in Windows Azure?
    spans & controls a set of connected servers:
    Abstract execution environment.
    Shared file system.
    Resource allocation.
    Programming environments.
    And more: Utility computing:
    24/7 operation.
    Pay for what you use.
    Simpler, transparent administration.
  • 9. What Does The Developer Get?
    A rich, familiar developer experience.
    A powerful service execution environment:
    All of the hardware: servers; load balancers; …
    Virtualized and direct execution.
    Automated service management:
    You define the rules and provide your code.
    The platform follows the rules: deploys, monitors, and manages your service.
    Scalable, available cloud storage
    Blobs, tables, queues, …
  • 10. Developing Applications for Windows Azure
    • No up-front costs for massively scalable computing infrastructure
    • 11. Pay for what you use, when you use it
    • 12. Eliminate utilization concerns
    • 13. Add compute power as business grows or demand spikes
    • 14. No ongoing depreciation and maintenance costs
    FAMILIAR DEVELOPER EXPERIENCE
    DESIGNED FOR INTEROPERABILITY
    PROVEN MICROSOFT TECHNOLOGIES
