  1. 1. ms/AzPstr1CatVirtNetwork Azure is an open and flexible cloudplatform that enables you to quickly build,deploy and manage applications across a globalnetwork of Microsoft-managed datacenters.Build applications using any language, tool orframework. You can integrate your public cloudapplications with your existing IT environment.GLOBALWith multiple data centers worldwide,and a worldwide Content DeliveryNetwork, you can build applicationsthat provide the best experience evento the most remote places.ALWAYS ONWindows Azure supports adeployment model that enables you toupgrade your application withoutdowntime.SELF HEALINGWindows Azure provides automatic OSand service patching, built in networkload balancing and resiliency tohardware failure. Windows Azuredelivers a 99.95% monthly SLA.SELF-SERVICEIt is a fully automated self-serviceplatform that allows you to provisionresources within minutes.ELASTIC RESOURCESQuickly scale your resources based onyour needs. You only pay for theresources your application uses.ENTERPRISE READYBacked by industry certifications forsecurity and compliance, from ISO27001, SSAE 16, HIPAA BAA and E.U.Model Clauses.ANY LANGUAGEWindows Azure allows you to use anylanguage, framework or code editor tobuild applications, including .NET, PHP,Java, Node.js, Python and Ruby. Clientlibraries are available on GitHub.OPEN PROTOCOLSWindows Azure features and servicesare exposed using open RESTprotocols.CONNECTEDUse the Windows Azure robustmessaging capabilities to deliver hybridsolutions that run across the cloud andon-premises. Expand your data centerinto the cloud with Virtual Networking.RICH APPLICATION SERVICESWindows Azure provides a rich set ofapplications services, including SDKs,caching, messaging and identity.DATAYou can store data using relational data-bases, NoSQL and unstructured blobstorage. You can use Hadoop and busi-ness intelligence services to mine datafor insights.VIRTUAL MACHINESCLOUD SERVICES WEB SITESMOBILE SERVICES MEDIA SERVICESMEDIA SERVICESWEB ROLEINSTANCESLOAD BALANCERMESSAGINGWORKER ROLESTYPE: XSQL DATABASE TABLE STORAGE BLOB STORAGESTORAGETYPE: Y TYPE: CACHEWORKER ROLE WORKER ROLE WORKER ROLEMobile Services is a turnkey backend solution running on Windows Azure servers that offersfunctions such as saving data, querying, managing identity and pushing notifications to phone.Additionally, you can run scripts on the server to execute custom logic when doing CRUD opera-tions.Virtual Machines can run both Windows and Linux operating systems. Create VMs fromVirtual Hard Disk images stored as blobs. Create VHDs locally and upload them, choose from astock gallery or modify a running VM and save the image to your personal gallery.Cloud Services consist of Internet facing Web roles and Worker roles that run background tasks. Webroles can offload computing jobs to Worker roles and can distribute work via queues toscalable pools of Worker roles. All roles can access data stores or other services.Media Services provide a selection of services for encoding and protecting streaming mediasuch as videos and music. Drop off your high-resolution source content and convert it to mul-tiple bit rates for playback on a variety of devices. Stream to HD, DVD and phones.With Web Sites, you can share space in a VM or reserve an entire machine for your web site. Youcan create sites with both SQL Database and MySQL databases, as well as deploypopular open source software from a gallery. You can use the slider on the Windows Azureportal to scale out to more instances.WINDOWSLINUXSQL SERVER...GALLERYSTORAGEHYPERVISORLOAD BALANCERLOAD BALANCERINTERNETVPNENTERPRISEVIRTUALMACHINESVHD 1 VHD 2 VHD 3VM 1 VM 2 VM 3SHARED RESERVED3 2WORDPRESSDRUPALUMBRACO...GALLERYDATASCRIPTSUSER AUTHPUSHNOTIFICATIONSWINDOWSPHONE 8iOSANDROIDWINDOWS 8:-)MOBILE BACKEND SERVICESJOB SCHEDULINGIDENTITYMANAGEMENTINGESTIONON DEMANDSTREAMINGPROTECTIONADVERTISINGENCODINGLIVE STREAMINGCONVERSIONANALYTICSWEB SITESWith Web Sites, you can get started with web apps forfree.

Choose SQL Database or MySQL• Scale instantly in shared or reserved modes• Use affordable custom domain namesMOBILE SERVICESWith Mobile Services, you can use Windows Azure tosupport many backend capabilities:• Native client libraries for mobile device platforms,including Windows Store, Windows Phone 8 and iOS• User authentication with identity providers includingFacebook, Twitter, Google, and Microsoft Account• Pushing notifications to mobile apps• REST-based APIs for data access and authentication• Monitoring and data visualization showing usage ofyour Mobile ServiceCOMPUTEVIRTUAL MACHINESWith Virtual Machines, you get full control over a server inthe cloud, and maintain it as your business requires:• Bring customized Windows Server or Linux images orselect from a gallery• Migrate applications without changing existing code,work seamlessly to migrate SharePoint, SQL Server orActive Directory to cloud• Persistently store OS and application data• Remotely connect to take control of your virtualmachines with full admin accessCLOUD SERVICESWith Cloud Services, you can quickly deploy and managemulti-tier applications where Windows Azure handles thedetails: provisioning, load balancing, health monitoringfor continuous availability:• Use a dedicated IIS web server for hosting front-endweb applications with Web Role• Run asynchronous, long-running or perpetual tasksindependent of user interaction with Worker Role• Save time by allowing the system to automaticallyupdate and maintain the underlying operating systemSQL REPORTINGWindows Azure SQL Reporting allows you to buildreporting capabilities into Windows Azure applications.Reports can render on the desktop and remove the needto maintain your own reporting infrastructure:• Create reports with tables, charts, maps, and gauges• Deploy the same report layouts on both private andpublic clouds• Use Report Designer or Report Builder to build reportswhen SQL Database is your data sourceSQL DATA SYNCSQL Data Sync enables creating and scheduling regularsynchronizations between Windows Azure SQL Databaseand either SQL Server or other instances of SQL Database:• Synchronize data on a preset schedule or on demand• Manage synchronization with an intuitive web UIinstead of writing code• Synchronize between on-premises and cloud data sets,and across geographically dispersed databasesDATA SERVICESHDINSIGHTBased on Apache Hadoop, HDInsight simplifies workingwith big data through integration with tools like MicrosoftOffice and System Center:• Fast reading and processing of large structured orunstructured data stores• Create Hadoop based clusters on-demand• Integrate with SQL Database, Reporting Services,PowerPivot, Excel, and Windows Azure Storage• Use Pig, Hive and other ecosystem tools• Get started with basic visualizations like bar and piecharts quicklySQL DATABASEFor applications that need a full featured relationaldatabase-as-a-service, SQL Database offers a high-level ofinteroperability, enabling you to build using many of themajor development frameworks:• Only pay for what you use• Use existing relational database design and program-ming skills to build enterprise class applications• Replicate multiple redundant copies of your data tomultiple physical servers for high availability• Simplify the process of migrating existing on-premisesdatabases to cloud with Import/ExportSTORAGEStorage services provide multiple options for securelymanaging data and are accessible via REST APIs:• Data is replicated at least three times in the same datacenter across physically separate fault domains, andalso geo-replicated to another data center• Use blobs to store up to 100 terabytes per account ofunstructured text or binary data (video, audio andimages)• Use the NoSQL capabilities in tables for storing up to100 terabytes per account of unstructured data• Use queues to build reliable, persistent messagingbetween application tiersSTORESTOREWindows Azure Store provides quick discoverability,seamless access and easy management for applicationservices and data sets for developers, right from theWindows Azure management
