5 exclusive capabilities of Microsoft Azure
BluePi cloud experience
BluePi has been working with Indian companies large and small for the last three years helping them derive the benefits from cloud adoption. We not only help organization move to the cloud but help them adopt the latest technical capabilities using our competencies in the areas of DevOps, Big Data and App modernization.
Azure as a Platform
As one of the early entrants, Microsoft’s Azure joined Amazon’s AWS in the Gartner leader’s quadrant for IAAS service providers in 2015. Along with running the entire dot net ecosystem and platform Microsoft brings some very interesting capabilities that customers are increasingly looking to take advantage of. Here are some of the capabilities that are unique to Azure.
1. Azure CDN for Akamai
Akamai continues to enjoy pole position in the CDN landscape and Azure provides out of the box integration with Akamai. Not only Akamai, Azure’s CDN also provides integration with other CDN providers. This is a true differentiator for the media organizations.
2. Azure PowerShell
The Achilles heel of the windows platform has been the lack of a powerful command-line. PowerShell fills that gap for system admins who always prefer the command line.
3. Azure Service Fabric
Service Fabric is a great way to build microservices on the azure platform. With tight integration with Visual Studio IDE it becomes a matter of minutes to deploy low-latency performant microservices and manage their lifecycle.
4. Azure Stack
Ever wanted to deliver cloud services from your data centre? That’s what the new hybrid cloud platform – Azure Stack provides. Still in technical preview, this service has the potential to disrupt the hybrid landscape completely.
5. First Class Active Directory Support
Lots of organizations have on premise active directory installations. Having a cloud service that integrates and leverages the same technology is a great differentiator especially when it can drive your Office365 and Azure credentials.
The Road ahead
BluePi will bring high standards of quality delivery and cutting edge technology to Microsoft Azure customers. Our expertise in migrations, big data stack and mobility would help organizations experience a world class platform and service together.
