What is Azure?
Azure is Microsoft’s cloud computing platform and infrastructure. Azure is used for building, deploying and managing applications and services through a global network of Microsoft Datacentres. Azure is considered a leader of PaaS (platform as a service) and IaaS (Infrastructure as a service).
What on Earth does this mean; PaaS, IaaS? Confused? Probably!
Typically the infrastructure required to run and manage web applications is complex and requires a high level of skill to build and manage. Simply put Azure used for PaaS offers a development environment for application developers.
IaaS offer virtual machines and other resources without requiring the infrastructure required, which is complex and expensive to build and maintain. Azure includes Hyper-V hypervisors, storage, firewalls, load balancers, VLANs, software bundles and more. Simply put Azure used for IaaS offers the required computing infrastructure for a virtualized environment in a cost effective, easily scalable, easily managed way.
