  • Slide Objectives:Explain the differences and relationship between IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS in more detail.Speaking Points:Here’s another way to look at the cloud services taxonomy and how this taxonomy maps to the components in an IT infrastructure. Packaged SoftwareWith packaged software a customer would be responsible for managing the entire stack – ranging from the network connectivity to the applications. IaaSWith Infrastructure as a Service, the lower levels of the stack are managed by a vendor. Some of these components can be provided by traditional hosters – in fact most of them have moved to having a virtualized offering. Very few actually provide an OSThe customer is still responsible for managing the OS through the Applications. For the developer, an obvious benefit with IaaS is that it frees the developer from many concerns when provisioning physical or virtual machines. This was one of the earliest and primary use cases for Amazon Web Services Elastic Cloud Compute (EC2). Developers were able to readily provision virtual machines (AMIs) on EC2, develop and test solutions and, often, run the results ‘in production’. The only requirement was a credit card to pay for the services.PaaSWith Platform as a Service, everything from the network connectivity through the runtime is provided and managed by the platform vendor. The Windows Azure Platform best fits in this category today. In fact because we don’t provide access to the underlying virtualization or operating system today, we’re often referred to as not providing IaaS.PaaS offerings further reduce the developer burden by additionally supporting the platform runtime and related application services. With PaaS, the developer can, almost immediately, begin creating the business logic for an application. Potentially, the increases in productivity are considerable and, because the hardware and operational aspects of the cloud platform are also managed by the cloud platform provider, applications can quickly be taken from an idea to reality very quickly.SaaSFinally, with SaaS, a vendor provides the application and abstracts you from all of the underlying components.
  • Key Points:The cloud can help save money, increase productivity and reduce management complexitiesThis can create new business opportunitiesScript:This ability to move things to the cloud, use the cloud for extra compute or storage or expose or share your services with others leads to some benefits:First, it offers a new set of economic opportunities. Gain better control over your money (New economics)from saving money by not having to run and maintain large datacenters yourselfin some cases moving to IT as a subscription so that you only pay for what you use, when you use itby giving you the opportunity to shift from capital expenses to operational expensesReduced management:No patching and maintenanceFaster deploymentRobust multi-layered securityReliability and fault-toleranceRedefining Productivity: by increasing access to information and applicationsby increasing collaboration because many of the tools they use are now connected togetherby helping your IT staff focus more on business and less on plumbing and hardware (no patching and maintenance, faster deployment, etc) quickly adapt to changing business needs New EconomicsReduced ManagementRedefining Productivity
  • Key Points:Script:Businesses are moving to the cloud. Analysts predict that the vast majority of large businesses will be using some type of cloud services in the next few years and that many will drastically be cutting the IT assets that they run and maintain in favor of pushing it to others to run for them. If you’re looking at a new IT project or you’re facing some new business challenges, it’s worth taking a look to see if the cloud can help you.This all probably sounds good from a theoretical standpoint but whose actually doing this today?
  • Introduce SQL Azure as part of Microsoft’s Cloud PlatformWhen SQL Azure section expands, talk to the key platform capabilities provided by SQL Azure (Database, Reporting and DataSync)These capabilities and why and how we developed them will be covered in subsequent slides.
  • Slide ObjectiveDiscusses various SQL Azure data access topologiesSpeaking notesAccess from within Microsoft Datacenter (Code near scenario)Connect a Windows Azure Compute application to SQL AzureExecuting Asp.NET code, PHP, other managed code, native codeSimple familiar programming modelAccess from on premise applications (Code far)Solve the DB under the desk issue.NET, native or other platform supportMicrosoft access as a front end offers interesting scenarioNeed to be conscious of query frequency and/or payloadAccess from both Cloud and On PremiseE.g. application with browser front and AND a need to sync to mobile devicesCloud provides an always up rendezvous point for data consumersWindows Azure runs the browser based applicationOther applications connect remotely- TDS, Odata, SncNotesMSDN on topology options Azure + MS Access
  • Initial services – core RDBMS capabilities as a service SQL Azure Database(SADB), Data SyncFuture OfferingsAdditional data platform capabilities as a service: BI/DSS, DWNew services: Reference Data, Secure Data HubSQL Azure is an umbrella brand that covers all the services we intend to offer over time. Post v1 services are in grey. Data sync will be in CTP.Key takeaway: Start with core RDBMS features and expand from there. Integrate with on-premise SQL.High-Value Database ServicesRich data platform capabilities as a service: Reporting, Analytics, Integration, DW, … New services: Data Hub, DataPlex, Association Hub (Data->Information), …Extending our Data Platform to the cloud, generating a network effect:Benefit cloud business with Enterprise connectionsBenefit Enterprise business with cloud connectionsEnable new uses of data to drive additional business value – e.g. “Federated data”

  • Slide ObjectiveUse this slide to transition into an explanation of SQL Azure Database (Reporting and Data Sync will be covered later)Explain at a high level how SQL Azure worksSpeaker NotesDesign Principle of SQL Azure: Focus on combining the best features of SQL Server running at scale with low frictionSQL Azure is a high availability databaseAlways three transaction consistent replicas of the databaseOne primary replica; two slave replicasFailure of a replica will result in another replica being spun up immediately by the fabricFailure of the primary replica means a slave replica will become the primary and a new slave will spin upMinimal down timeTypically just a few dropped connectionsEasy to code for the failover scenario- if you are ding god connection management and error handling will be fineClustered index required on all tables to allow replicationNotesUseful article from SQL Azure team
