Microsoft Azure Course And Certification

What is Microsoft Azure?

Microsoft Azure which is formerly known as Windows Azure is a cloud computing service that is created by Microsoft for developing, testing, deploying, and managing software applications and services through the various Microsoft-managed data centers. Microsoft Azure provides a platform as a service(PAAS), software as a service (SAAS), and infrastructure as a service (IAAS) and it supports many different software programming languages, tools, and frameworks, which includes both Microsoft-specific and other third-party software and systems.

Microsoft Azure comes with a specialized operating system, which is called Microsoft Azure, to run its "fabric layer" which is A cluster that is hosted at various Microsoft's data centers that handles the various computing and storage resources of the computers and allocates the resources (or just a subset of the resources ) to the various applications that are running on top of Microsoft Azure.

Scaling and reliability of the services are controlled by the Microsoft Azure Fabric Controller, which makes sure that  the services and environment do not stop working if one or more of the servers stops working from the Microsoft data center, and which also provides the management of the user's Web application such as memory allocation and load balancing.

Microsoft Azure provides an API that is built on REST, HTTP, and XML and it allows software developers to communicate with the various services that are provided by the Microsoft Azure.

In addition to interacting with various services via its REST API, users can operate their Azure services by using the Web-based Microsoft Azure Portal, which reached its General Availability in December 2015. The portal allows its users to browse and view their active resources, change their settings, launch new resources, etc.
