About Microsoft Azure
Microsoft Azure, formerly branded Windows Azure, is a leading public cloud service that allows you to utilize network infrastructure, servers, and business-critical application software hosted on Microsoft's massive public cloud. The Azure ecosystem includes over 100 cloud-based services such as the ability to host Windows and Linux-based virtual machines, on-demand storage, messaging, development, and data backup. Microsoft Azure services are delivered by subscription and provided dynamically, so organizations can immediately ramp up or reduce compute and storage capacity. Because you are billed only for the computer resources you consume, utilization is very high, which is one of the major attractions of cloud computing.

Key Azure Cloud Services
Microsoft Azure provides dozens of IaaS and PaaS options and hundreds of cloud services. This expanding set of integrated cloud services covers virtually all areas of IT including processing, data and storage, networking, administration, security, web hosting, mobility, business applications, and software development. Other popular offerings like Office 365 Exchange Online rely on Microsoft Azure cloud infrastructure. (Visit Microsoft Office 365 Exchange Online consulting and technical support expertise.)

Key Azure offerings for which Progent can deliver high-level expertise and technical support services include:

Microsoft Azure Virtual Machines Integration ConsultingAzure Virtual Machines makes it easy for organizations to provision, expand and manage virtual machines on the Azure cloud. Your Azure Storage subscription takes care of storage for the OS disk and any data disks. Microsoft Azure Virtual Machines supports Microsoft Windows Server, major distributions of Linux, SAP, Oracle Database and Oracle WebLogic Server, and other leading platforms. Various categories of VMs are available and priced according to CPU performance, memory and disk size, and I/O throughput. You can access Azure Virtual Machines via RDP. The PaaS functionality of Azure Virtual Machines permits you to run Windows applications like SQL Server, Exchange, and SharePoint as well as major Linux distributions such as Red Hat, CentOS, Ubuntu, and RancherOS.

The current deployment model for Azure Virtual Machines, referred to as Azure Resource Manager, replaces what is now called Azure Classic and enables more efficient virtual machine management by supporting VM groups with a common lifecycle. Before, Microsoft Azure cloud services for provisioning, scaling, and administering VMs had to be handled one VM at a time. Resource Manager deployment options include a cloud portal, Azure Resource Manager template, Azure PowerShell, and Azure Tools for Visual Studio. Progent's Azure specialists can show you how to create and administer Microsoft Azure environments efficiently and economically by providing expertise with all these tools for managing Azure Virtual Machines.

Azure Storage ConsultingMicrosoft Azure Storage offers on-demand capacity and load balancing for primary storage hosted on Azure. A General Purpose Storage account provides Azure clients the use of storage services for Blobs, Tables, Files, Queues, and VM drives. Every account includes a 500 terabyte capacity limit. For faster throughput, you can upgrade to Azure's Premium storage class and run VM workloads on solid state disks (SSDs).

Azure Blob storage for General Purpose Storage accounts is intended for massive amounts of unstructured data like documents, social media, archives, web content, and logs. Blobs are managed as containers, making it easy to assign security policies to groups of objects. To send blobs that are too massive to move via the Internet, you can send media to Microsoft.

A separate category of Blob Storage is designed for applications that only require block or append blob storage. You can specify frequently used or infrequently used access characteristics for block and append blobs (but not for page blobs). The ability to classify access patterns in Microsoft Azure Storage enables you to achieve an optimal trade-off between price and performance.

Table storage is economical cloud storage for developers creating schemaless metadata like contact books, device information, or web apps. Azure Table Storage supports the OData protocol for querying and supports JSON and XMLd AtomPub formats. Queue storage facilitates the creation of messaging solutions by handling asynchronous communication between software components that span cloud and physical environments. Azure File storage supports SMB shares, which streamlines migrating older applications to the Azure cloud.

Azure Active Directory ConsultingMicrosoft Azure Active Directory is a cloud directory and identity control service that provides password synchronization and single sign-on across local and cloud-hosted environments. Azure Active Directory (AD) is incorporated in Office 365,, DropBox, Dynamics CRM Online, and many other cloud applications. Capabilities include multi-factor authentication, endpoint registration, password synchronization across cloud-hosted and local systems, privileged account management, role-based access control (RBAC), auditing, security monitoring and reporting, and alerts. Azure AD integrates seamlessly with Windows Server Active Directory to make it easy to unify on-premises and cloud-based authentication. Azure offers advanced reliability by locating your directories on at least three separate datacenters.

Microsoft Azure Active Directory Integration Consulting

Microsoft Azure AD allows single sign-on password management for cloud and local resources

The Azure AD Connect utility has replaced Windows Azure Active Directory Sync (DirSync), Azure AD Sync and Forefront Identity Manager as the preferred means to integrate on-premises directories and synchronize identity data with Active Directory, Office 365 and SaaS cloud applications.

Microsoft Azure Backup ConsultingAzure Backup is a managed backup service that simplifies offsite backup of local, cloud, and hybrid data. Three copies of backup data are stored in the same Azure datacenter, and three more copies of target data at additional cost be protected at a different Azure location. Microsoft offers Service Level Agreements (SLAs) for 99.9% availability, and retention in Azure is available for up to 99 years. You can schedule backups for daily, monthly, weekly, and yearly periods, and restoration is quicker and less expensive than old-style tape-based technology. Backups are encrypted prior to being sent across a protected link to the Azure cloud, and backups are stored encrypted. The encryption key is kept locally for better compliance. Additional features include throttling to take advantage of low-traffic hours, data compression to improve throughput and lower storage costs, and incremental backups to save bandwidth. Azure Import/Export allows you to perform your seed backup locally and send a physical drive to the closest Azure datacenter.

Azure Backup can be integrated seamlessly with System Center Data Protection Manager to offer targeted support for Microsoft's key platforms including Exchange, SQL Server, SharePoint, and Hyper-V. SCDPM works transparently with Hyper-V Volume Shadow Copy Services to protect virtual machines without interrupting their operation. SCDPM also offers product-specific granular recovery features such as mailbox restoration for Exchange, database-level restore for SQL Server, and Item Level Recovery for SharePoint Server. Azure Backup solutions integrated with Data Protection Manager can be monitored with SCOM to watch over system health, throughput, and efficiency.
