Understanding – ” AZURE “
So the first question is “What is Azure” ? And what is does ?
A very simple answer is Azure is public cloud offering from Microsoft . so the 2nd question is “What is does?” . Answer is , You want to create your own datacenter , but you don’t have enough money , planning , manpower to build a new datacenter . So what you can do you can take Microsoft Datacenter in rent and you can use that through web/internet . Like public BUS , you use the facility of public transport but you are not responsible for taking care of that and you pay as you go. And this is the biggest benefit of Azure . “PAY-AS-YOU-GO” = Pay only for that – what you used with a very minimum rent . So Microsoft will take care of hardware , Network , Security etc. of there datacenter and you just enjoy the facility of AZURE .
Is that all about Azure ??? Not off course , Azure in the next Infra and future of our IT world .I believe now you can understand what is Azure . So, let me describe it with Technical Word .
Cloud can be divided in three part . Like Private , public and Hybrid . And Azure is public cloud . But in can be integrated with Private cloud and that will be Hybrid cloud .
