About Microsoft Azure
Microsoft Azure, formerly branded Windows Azure, is a leading cloud service that allows you to utilize IT infrastructure, servers, and business-critical application software residing on Microsoft's vast public cloud. Microsoft Azure offers over 100 cloud-based services including the ability to host Windows and Linux-based virtual machines, on-demand storage, unified messaging, application development with Visual Studio, and backup/restore. Microsoft Azure products are delivered by subscription and allocated as-needed, so organizations can instantly ramp up or reduce processing and data storage capacity. Since you are billed only for the computer resources you need, utilization is very high, which is the key of cloud computing.

Popular Azure Cloud Products and Services
Microsoft Azure provides more than 60 IaaS and PaaS options and many hundreds of cloud services. This expanding family of integrated cloud services covers practically all areas of IT such as processing, data and storage, network infrastructure, management, cybersecurity, web hosting, mobile, applications, and development. Other Microsoft offerings like Office 365 Exchange Online rely on Azure network infrastructure. (See Office 365 Exchange Online integration and troubleshooting expertise.)

Major Microsoft Azure products and services for which Progent can deliver advanced expertise and technical support include:

Azure Virtual Machines ExpertiseMicrosoft Azure Virtual Machines allows organizations to provision, expand and administer virtual machines on the Azure cloud. An Azure Storage account takes care of storage for the OS disk and associated data disks. Azure Virtual Machines works with Windows Server, Linux, SAP, Oracle Database and Oracle WebLogic Server, and other leading platforms. Various classes of virtual machines are offered and priced based on CPU performance, memory capacity, and I/O throughput. You can access Microsoft Azure Virtual Machines through RDP. The PaaS functionality of Azure Virtual Machines permits organizations to run Windows workloads like SQL Server, Exchange, and Microsoft Dynamics as well as major Linux distributions like Red Hat, Debian, CoreOS, and FreeBSD.

The current deployment model for Microsoft Azure Virtual Machines, referred to as Azure Resource Manager, supersedes what is now called Azure Classic and offers streamlined virtual machine management by supporting VM groups with a shared lifecycle. Before, Microsoft Azure services for deploying, sizing, and administering virtual machines had to be performed one VM at a time. Resource Manager provisioning options include a cloud portal, Azure Resource Manager template, Azure PowerShell, and Visual Studio support. Progent's consultants can show you how to build and maintain Azure environments quickly and economically by delivering expertise with these tools for supporting Azure Virtual Machines.

Azure Storage ConsultingAzure Storage delivers dynamic scale and automatic load balancing for primary storage on the Azure cloud. A General Purpose Storage account gives Azure clients the use of storage services for Blobs, Tables, Files, Queues, and VM disks. Every account includes a 500 terabyte capacity maximum. To get higher performance, you can upgrade to a Premium storage class and run virtual machine workloads on solid state disks.

Azure Blob storage for General Purpose Storage accounts is designed for large volumes of unstructured object data such as documents, social media, backups, web pages, and system logs. Azure Blobs are managed as containers, making it easy to assign policies to object groups. To export blobs that are too massive to move over an Internet connection, you can mail a drive to Microsoft.

A special class of Blob Storage is intended for applications that only need block or append blob storage. You can designate frequently used or infrequently used access characteristics for block and append blobs (not page blobs). The ability to classify data access characteristics in Microsoft Azure Storage allows you to achieve the right balance between price and throughput.

Table storage is economical cloud storage for developers creating non-relational metadata such as address lists, device information, or web apps. Table Storage works with the OData protocol for querying and supports JSON and XMLd AtomPub formats. Queue storage simplifies the creation of messaging applications by supporting asynchronous exchanges between software components across cloud-based and physical systems. Azure File storage accommodates SMB file shares, which simplifies migrating older apps to Azure.

Azure Active Directory ExpertiseAzure Active Directory is a cloud-based directory and authentication control service that provides password synchronization and single sign-on across on-premises and cloud-hosted infrastructure. Microsoft Azure Active Directory (AD) is built into Office 365,, DropBox, Microsoft Dynamics 365, and many other popular applications. Features include multi-factor authentication (MFA), endpoint registration, password management across cloud-hosted and local systems, privileged account management, granular role-based access control, auditing, security monitoring and reporting, and alerts. Microsoft Azure AD works seamlessly with your Windows Server AD to make it simple to unify local and cloud authentication. Azure offers advanced reliability by storing your directories on at least three geo-dispersed datacenters.

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

The Azure AD Connect utility has superseded Windows Azure DirSync, Azure AD Sync and Forefront Identity Manager as the recommended way to connect on-premises directories and synchronize identity data with AD, Office 365 and SaaS cloud-hosted apps.

Microsoft Azure Backup ConsultingAzure Backup is an automated cloud-based backup service that simplifies offsite backup of on-premises, cloud, and hybrid data. Three copies of backup data are stored in a single Azure facility, and three more copies can optionally be stored at a geographically separate Azure region. Microsoft offers SLAs for 99.9% reliability, and retention in the Azure cloud is available for as long as 99 years. You can schedule backups for daily, monthly, weekly, and yearly periods, and restoration is quicker and less expensive than traditional tape-based solutions. Backups are encrypted prior to transmission over a secure link to the Azure cloud, and backups are retained encrypted. The encryption key is stored and managed locally for better security compliance. Additional features include throttling to utilize low-traffic periods, data compression to improve throughput and reduced storage costs, and incremental backups to conserve bandwidth. Azure Import/Export allows you to perform your seed backup locally and send a physical storage device to the nearest Azure datacenter.

Azure Backup can be integrated seamlessly with System Center Data Protection Manager to provide in-depth support for Microsoft's mission-critical platforms including Exchange, SQL Server, SharePoint Server, and Windows Hyper-V. Data Protection Manager works seamlessly with Windows Hyper-V VSS to backup virtual machines without disrupting their operation. DPM also offers platform-specific granular restore capability like mailbox restoration for Exchange, database-level recovery for SQL Server, and ILR for SharePoint Server. Azure Backup environments integrated with SCDPM can be tracked with System Center Operations Manager to watch over system health, throughput, and efficiency.
