Archives For Hybrid Cloud

Personally, I’m all about Cloud Native Hyper-Scale applications. WOW! that’s a lot of buzz words in a row so let’s distill that to something more meaningful. I love the flexibility I get from Platform as a Service (PaaS). This model provides me with granular control over my application’s structure without thinking too much about the actual Virtual Machines (VMs).

The Azure ecosystem is rich with Software as a Service (SaaS) features that developers can use to build their own applications. SaaS provides tremendous value to developers and stakeholders because we as developers don’t have to take ownership. These are some of the SaaS features available developers on Azure today.

Every year, the list of services keep growing. Each service is built and maintained by Microsoft. It comes with Service Level Agreements (SLAs) and assurances around data and privacy, SLAs also means that Microsoft is responsible for support. In other words, it means that we as developers get to focus on adding business value to our application and let Microsoft worry about the details. As long as we consider performance targets while we design, we get to spend time on the code that matters most to our businesses.

What’s your Cloud flavor? Mine is like a buffet, I compose with PaaS, Saas, IaaS and Hybrid Cloud solutions to provide the best end user experiences.
