Microsoft Azure

Are you thinking of moving to the cloud?

The cloud helps you move faster and innovate in new ways. Data-driven companies know they need to switch from an onsite infrastructure to a scalable cloud service in order to power the kind of data collection and usage they imagine.

Syntelo has partnered with Microsoft to help small and medium sized businesses to migrate to the cloud and to actualize their innovative ideas so that they can pass on benefits in cost savings and efficiencies to their customers.

Azure Cloud Adoption Strategy

What can I do with Microsoft Azure?

Azure is a continually expanding set of cloud services that helps your business to meet its current and future challenges. It gives you the freedom to build, manage, and deploy applications on a massive global network using your favorite tools and frameworks. 

It provides more than 100 services that enable you to do everything from running your existing applications on virtual machines, to exploring new software paradigms. However, the cloud is much more than a different place to run your virtual machines.

For example, Azure provides AI and machine-learning services that can naturally communicate with your users through vision, hearing, and speech. It also provides storage solutions that dynamically grow to accommodate massive amounts of data.

Big Picture of Azure Services

Compute

Compute services are often one of the primary reasons why companies move to the Azure platform. Azure provides a range of options for hosting applications and services.

Networking

Linking compute resources and providing access to applications is the key function of Azure networking. Networking functionality in Azure includes a range of options to connect the outside world to services and features in the global Azure datacenters. 

Storage

Azure provides four main types of storage services: (1) Blob, (2) File, (3) Queue, (4) Table.  All these services are durable and highly available with redundancy and replication; Secure through automatic encryption and role-based access control; Scalable with virtually unlimited storage; Managed, handling maintenance and any critical problems for you; Accessible from anywhere in the world over HTTP or HTTPS.

Mobile

With Azure developers can create mobile back-end services for iOS, Android, and Windows apps quickly and easily. Features that used to take time and increase project risks such as adding corporate sign-in and then connecting to on-premises resources such as SAP, Oracle, SQL Server, and SharePoint, are now simple to include. 

Databases

Azure provides multiple database services to store a wide variety of data types and volumes. And with global connectivity this data is available to users instantly.

Web

Having a great web experience is critical in today's business world. Azure includes first-class support to build and host web apps and HTTP-based web services. The following Azure services are focused on web hosting.

IoT

People are able to access more information than ever before. Personal digital assistants led to smartphones, and now there are smart watches, smart thermostats, and even smart refrigerators. Personal computers used to be the norm. Now the internet allows any item that's online-capable to access valuable information. This ability for devices to garner and then relay information for data analysis is referred to as IoT.

Big Data

Data comes in all formats and sizes. When we talk about big data, we're referring to large volumes of data. Data from weather systems, communications systems, genomic research, imaging platforms, and many other scenarios generate hundreds of gigabytes of data. This amount of data makes it hard to analyze and make decisions. It's often so large that traditional forms of processing and analysis are no longer appropriate.

AI

AI, in the context of cloud computing, is based around a broad range of services, the core of which is machine learning. Machine learning is a data science technique that allows computers to use existing data to forecast future behaviors, outcomes, and trends. Using machine learning, computers learn without being explicitly programmed. Forecasts or predictions from machine learning can make apps and devices smarter. For example, when you shop online, machine learning helps recommend other products you might like based on what you've purchased. Or when your credit card is swiped, machine learning compares the transaction to a database of transactions and helps detect fraud. And when your robot vacuum cleaner vacuums a room, machine learning helps it decide whether the job is done. 

DevOps

DevOps brings together people, processes, and technology by automating software delivery to provide continuous value to your users. With Azure DevOps, you can create build and release pipelines that provide continuous integration, delivery, and deployment for your applications. You can integrate repositories and application tests, perform application monitoring, and work with build artifacts. You can also work with and backlog items for tracking, automate infrastructure deployment, and integrate a range of third-party tools and services such as Jenkins and Chef. All of these functions and many more are closely integrated with Azure to allow for consistent, repeatable deployments for your applications to provide streamlined build and release processes.
