Cloud platforms like Azure provide the best options for organizations in
their digital transformation.
Most organizations have multiple combination of environment needs.
Provisioning on time is always a challenge. Manual operations are prone to
error and delays. Difficult to size production like Environments due to
resource constraints, this means most NFR (Non Functional Requirements) are
not tested with the correct load and perspective. Unable to innovate on new
initiatives like blockchain, cognitive services, machine learning due to lack
of platform components. Unable to manage the CAPEX and charge back on
environments to specific teams and project budgets skewed due to environment
costs Lack of test environments resulting in a slower software development

As I wrote earlier this year over at InfoWorld, Microsoft took another step
toward being king of the cloud hill when it announced in January that it was
releasing its Azure stack to the public. There are many technical reasons why
this is cool, but more importantly, it's the psychological advantage this
Google has always had the ability for developers using its stack to develop
locally on the same tools that run in Google App Engine. It recently forked
its environments, so now the local and cloud environments are slightly
different for some of the configurations -- I can't tell you how many nights
I have lost sleep because of environments being slightly different!
Development and hosting are two completely different things. What Microsoft
did is one-upped Google and Amazon.
The psychological advantage comes into play for companies that aren't 100 ... (more)

Azure Resource Manager: The Secret Sauce of the Microsoft Cloud Strategy
Since its introduction in 2009, Microsoft Azure has gone through a
significant transformation. What started as a hardcore set of platform
services is now a force to be reckoned within the infrastructure market as
According to Gartner, Azure is inching closer to AWS, firmly securing its
place in the top right section of the Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS)
Magic Quadrant, which is reserved only for the market leaders.
One technology that’s accelerating Microsoft’s infrastructure services

Behind every cloud service or cloud-based solution, there are real people...
A robust ecosystem of solutions providers has emerged around cloud computing.
But who are the CEOs & CTOs behind those providers, who are the internal and
external entrepreneurs driving companies involved in the Cloud, who are the
leading engineers, developers, analysts, researchers, marketing
professionals, authors...who, in short, are the people behind the cloud?
This list will be updated weekly between now and November 4-7, 2013, when
13th Cloud Expo | Cloud Expo Silicon Valley opens its doors in the Santa

Azure Resource Manager: The Shift from Services to Resources
In the first part of this series, we discussed the evolution of Azure IaaS
and role of Azure Resource Manager. The next installment of the series
explains the key differences between Azure Service Management (ASM) and Azure
Resource Management (ARM) models. We will also take a look at key concepts
and terminology related to ARM.
ASM or ARM?
One of the key tenets of cloud, especially infrastructure services, is
programmability. Almost every cloud provider exposes a set of APIs to
manipulate the virtual infrastructure programmatically. Even before the Cloud
Computing term became a buzzword, Amazon exposed APIs for storage and
compute, which eventually became the core of AWS.
When Microsoft built Azure, developers could interact with the control plane
through the Azure Service Management (ASM) API. Before off... (more)
