About Microsoft Azure
Microsoft Azure, formerly branded Windows Azure, is a leading cloud platform that lets you utilize network infrastructure, servers, and business-critical applications hosted on Microsoft's massive cloud. Microsoft Azure offers dozens of cloud-based services including the ability to host Windows and Linux-powered virtual machines (VMs), on-demand storage, messaging, application development, and data backup. Azure products are delivered by subscription and allocated as-needed, so organizations can instantly ramp up or ratchet down compute and storage resources. Because you are billed only for the computer resources you consume, efficiency is high, which is the key of cloud computing.

Popular Azure Cloud Services
Microsoft Azure provides more than 60 IaaS and platform products and hundreds of services. This growing line of cloud-based services covers practically all facets of IT including processing, data and storage, networking, administration, security, web, mobile, applications, and development. Other Microsoft offerings like Office 365 Exchange Online depend Azure network infrastructure. (See Office 365 Exchange Online integration and technical support consulting services.)

Key Azure offerings for which Progent provides advanced consulting expertise and technical support services include:

Azure Virtual Machines Integration ConsultingMicrosoft Azure Virtual Machines makes it easy for you to deploy, expand and administer virtual machines (VMs) on Azure. An Azure Storage subscription provides storage for the OS disk and any data disks. Microsoft Azure Virtual Machines works with Microsoft Windows Server, major distributions of Linux, IBM, Oracle Database, and additional platforms. Various classes of VMs are available and priced according to processor power, memory capacity, and I/O latency. You can connect with Microsoft Azure Virtual Machines via Remote Desktop Connection (RDP). The Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) functionality of Azure Virtual Machines allows you to run Windows applications like SQL Server, Exchange, and SharePoint as well as leading Linux distributions like Red Hat, Debian, CoreOS, and RancherOS.

The enhanced deployment model for Microsoft Azure Virtual Machines, branded Azure Resource Manager and introduced in 2014, supersedes what is now called Azure Classic and offers more efficient VM management by supporting VM groups with a common lifecycle. Before, Microsoft Azure cloud services for deploying, sizing, and administering VMs had to be performed individually. Resource Manager provisioning features include Azure Portal, Azure Resource Manager template, Azure PowerShell, and Azure Tools for Visual Studio. Progent's consultants can help you build and maintain Microsoft Azure environments quickly and economically by providing expertise with these tools for managing Microsoft Azure Virtual Machines.

Azure Storage ConsultingMicrosoft Azure Storage offers on-demand scale and automatic load balancing for primary storage on Azure. An Azure General Purpose Storage account gives Azure clients the use of storage services for Blobs, Tables, Files, Queues, and VM drives. Each account has a 500 terabyte storage maximum. To get higher performance, you can upgrade to a Premium storage tier and run virtual machine applications on solid state disks (SSDs).

Azure Blob storage for General Purpose Storage accounts is designed for massive amounts of unstructured object data such as documents, social media, backups, web content, and logs. Blobs are arranged as containers, which makes it easy to designate policies to groups of objects. To export blobs that are too massive to upload via the Internet, you can ship a drive to Microsoft.

A special class of Blob Storage is designed for apps that only require block or append blob storage. You can specify frequently used or infrequently used access patterns for block and append blobs (not page blobs). Being able to specify access patterns in Microsoft Azure storage accounts allows you to achieve an optimal balance between price and throughput.

Table storage is low-cost storage for developers creating non-relational metadata such as address lists, device information, or web apps. Table Storage supports the OData protocol for advanced querying and supports JSON and XMLd AtomPub formats. Queue storage helps in the creation of messaging solutions by supporting asynchronous exchanges between application components across cloud-based and physical environments. Azure File storage accommodates SMB file shares, which streamlines migrating legacy applications to the Azure cloud.

Microsoft Azure Active Directory ExpertiseAzure Active Directory is a cloud directory and authentication management service that provides password synchronization and single sign-on (SSO) spanning local and cloud-hosted infrastructure. Microsoft Azure Active Directory is incorporated in Office 365,, DropBox, Dynamics 365, and thousands of other cloud apps. Capabilities include multi-factor authentication (MFA), device registration, password synchronization across cloud and on-premises systems, privileged account management, role-based access control (RBAC), auditing, security monitoring and reporting, and automatic alerts. Microsoft Azure AD integrates seamlessly with your Windows Server AD to make it simple to unify on-premises and cloud-based identities. Azure provides high availability by locating your directories on at least three geo-dispersed facilities.

Microsoft Azure AD enables single sign-on password management to access cloud and local resources

The Azure AD Connect utility has superseded Windows Azure Active Directory Sync (DirSync), Azure AD Sync and Forefront Identity Manager as the preferred means to connect local directories and synchronize identity data with AD, Office 365 and SaaS cloud-hosted apps.

Azure Backup ConsultantsAzure Backup is a managed backup service for offsite backup of on-premises, cloud, and hybrid cloud/local data. Three copies of backup data are stored in one Azure facility, and three additional copies of target data at additional cost be protected in a different Azure location. Microsoft offers SLAs for 99.9% reliability, and archiving in the Azure cloud can be as long as 99 years. You can schedule backups for daily, monthly, weekly, and yearly periods, and restoration is faster and more affordable than old-school tape technology. Backups are encrypted prior to transmission across a protected link to Azure, and backups are retained encrypted. The encryption key is kept locally for better security compliance. Additional features include throttling to utilize off-peak periods, data compression to improve throughput and reduced storage requirements, and incremental backups to conserve bandwidth. Azure Import/Export enables you to perform your seed backup on-premises and deliver a physical drive to the nearest Azure facility.

Azure Backup integrates closely with System Center Data Protection Manager to provide targeted support for Microsoft's mission-critical workloads including Exchange, SQL Server, SharePoint Server, and Hyper-V. System Center Data Protection Manager works transparently with Hyper-V Volume Shadow Copy Services (VSS) to backup virtual machines without disrupting their accessibility. SCDPM also offers platform-specific granular restore features such as mailbox recovery for Exchange, database-level recovery for SQL Server, and Item Level Recovery for SharePoint. Azure Backup environments integrated with Data Protection Manager can be monitored with System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) to watch over system health, throughput, and efficiency.
