Azure is a cloud-based application platform from Microsoft that is used to host, manage, and build applications remotely. SQL Azure, the cloud operating system, and.NET services are among Microsoft Azure's components. Microsoft data centres host the cloud service. The following are seven reasons why most businesses are considering Windows Azure as a cloud computing platform.
WINDOWS ARE FAMILIAR
Because Azure is built on Windows, it uses the same programming languages as Windows apps, such as C#, C++, and Visual Basic. This simplifies the hiring process for the company because they will have no trouble finding developers with the necessary skills to build applications for the Azure platform.
WINDOWS VMS FOR 64-BIT
Each Azure programme runs in its own virtual machine on the 64-bit Windows Server 2008 operating system. Because the apps are constructed utilising worker role instances or web role instances that operate in their own VMs, customers do not need to provision VMs or administer and maintain the OS. You don't have to worry about hardware with Microsoft Azure.
SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT KIT AZURE
The Windows Azure software development kit includes a Windows Azure Development Fabric version of the Azure environment that works on any PC. The Azure storage and agent are also included. It enables you to work locally while debugging and creating an application before transferring it to the cloud.
SCALABILITY AND FLEXIBILITY
Azure is a safe platform In the cloud, it is scalable and delivers performance-efficient storage services. If you need to scale up, all you have to do is change the settings for the amount of processors the programmes will employ. Furthermore, the "pay-as-you-go" model allows you to respond rapidly to the needs of your clients.
MODEL OF EFFECTIVE PRICING
The cost of Windows Azure services is solely determined by usage. As a result, you only pay for what you use. The cost of developing, debugging, testing, and delivering web-based applications is reduced with Azure since you only pay for the storage space and computer processing time that you require.
RESOURCES FOR FAMILY SUPPORT
Businesses can take benefit of well-known support resources because Azure leverages tools and technologies similar to other Windows platforms. MSDN and TechNet are well-known examples.
Azure's communications services work with cloud and on-premises applications as well as mobile devices, allowing you to create hybrid applications. SOAP, REST, XML, and HTTP are among the open standards and internet protocols supported by Azure. For interoperability with applications created in these languages, SDKs are available for PHP, Ruby, and Java.
