  • Agility – Rapid and Inexpensive re-provisioning of Infrastructure Resources.Reliability – Improves through Redundancy among instances of servers in the cloud.Sustainability – improved resource utilization, more efficient Systems, and Carbon Neutrality.Security – Always Controversial, gained by Security Focused Resources, and possibly by Data centralization. But Sensitive data is now out of your control, and sitting in the cloud.Scalability – Near real-time, on-demand provisioning of resources on a self-serving basis during peak hours of use.Maintenance – Cloud Applications are easier to maintain and support. There is no need for each user to install the application on their own machine, and improvements to the system reach the client instantly.Centralization – All of your data, and applications can run from the cloud allowing them to be accessible where ever they are needed.Cost – Cost is based on actual usage, not operating hours. Costs are also shared with many users as Servers are Virtualized in Server Farm boxes.
  • App Fabric- Windows Server AppFabric provides caching capabilities, as well as workflow and service hosting capabilitiesDallas - An Open Data Platform that uses the Odata Protocol - Dallas APIs allow developers and information workers to consume this premium content with virtually any platform, application or business workflow. - Discover and license valuable data to improve existing applications or reports - Consumable via REST Based API (Odata)WIF – Is meant to Abstract Security from your application to allow for greater flexibility - If you’re already running a Windows Environment, WIF allows for Active directory or Windows Cardspace IntegrationMicrosoft Pinpoint – A listing service that allows Consumers find services that fill their needs. - Which gives ISVs or Developers a centralized that consumers will focus on.Storage Services - Tables Appeal to the NoSQL Crowd, You can persist data in the cloud without a database - Queues Allow the developer to move data away from their UI for further processing on another thread (thread is rather loose term, it’s Worker Role). - Blobs Allows you to store files to the cloud for use or distribution from your applicationManagement API - REST Based Management API allows you to Programmatically Manage your Resources in the cloud. - You can also use it to Query the Resources to Monitor your Instances running in the cloud.
