Assignment X In light of you not being able to directly use thevirtualization components of the Azure cloud, I’d like you to research some of thedifferent services that are offered. 1. What areIaaS, PaaS, and SaaS. What do they standfor, what are they for, and what is an example of each.Infrastructure as a service – In this service we selectthe pre canned OS layer , deploy our code and then we add it to our data. Eg:Amazon EC2Platform as a service -This is a third party service whichprovide hardware and software tools for eg: google app enginehttp://searchcloudcomputing.techtarget.com/definition/Platform-as-a-Service-PaaSSoftwareas a service (SaaS) is a software distribution model which makesapplication available to customers over the internet.
eg ms office 365http://searchcloudcomputing.techtarget.com/definition/Software-as-a-Service 2. Go to https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/services/. The Azure cloud has over 600 differentservices spread across several different categories. Give an overview of each category anddescribe the purpose of each.
Then picktwo services from each category and explain what they’re for and why you’d useit. · ComputeCompute category basically used to compute and execute applications on a cloudplatform using its different services .Moreover, compute category consists ofservices which helps to complete the above purposes.The two services of compute category are :1. VirtualMachines : Foremost , this category supports many OS ,languages likewindows server ,sql server etc. Virtual machines of azure helps us in variousways like to run applications in the cloud and can easily create the perfectenvironment for testing an application and can configure changes in codehttps://azure.microsoft.
com/en-us/services/virtual-machines/ 2. Cloudservices : the main task is to deploy big data applications and services tothe cloud combining in the cloud services of azure. This service can manage toback up these application.These are basically depends upon PAAS environment.https://azure.
microsoft.com/en-us/services/cloud-services/ · Storage https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/common/storage-introductionAzure category of storage is a cloud service which helps in providing storage.Azure services of storage are redundant, secure and scalable .Azure storage havevarious services to provide storage efficiency.1.
Blob Storage : Blob storage are highlyreliable and fetchable form any corner of the world by just using URLs.

com/en-us/azure/storage/common/storage-introduction· Networkinghttps://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/fundamentals-introduction-to-azure#networkingThis category of azure helps us to connect the local networks with bigdatacenters by using the various services of azure .these services will helpyou to connect with internet ,depending on the type of service these networksvaries in speed and security. There are many services of azure such as virtualnetwork, express route ,azure DNS and many more .
some of the services are :1. Virtual networks: This service allowsus to develop a virtual environment of networks between the local network . Thisservice will develop a secure connection between your local network and virtualnetwork.2. Express route : In this service ,If theuser want more bandwidth or security more than the virtual network service .For using this service there are permissions we need to take from our Internetservice provider .
With developing the express route your network route will notbe go through the public network. · Web +Mobile https://docs.microsoft.
com/en-us/azure/fundamentals-introduction-to-azure#mobileAzure category of mobile helps you to back up the storage oth theapplications of mobile in a cloud which can only fetch by original users andcan send notifications with automation 1.

microsoft.com/en-us/services/?filter=containersAzure stores data in theform of containers which are equivalent to the folders in windows .In these containersone can store any type of file of any size1. Batch : azure batch service helps us to runlarge-scale parallel and high performance computing workloads in azure .Itmanages the execution of tasks in a queue and the applications in which are cloudsupport is there .2.
Container Instances : Easily run with a one command ,getstarted in seconds and lower your infrastructure costs by taking advantage ofbilling .It is the application running in the cloud.· Databaseshttps://azure.microsoft.
com/en-us/services/?filter=databasesDatabase category is more preferred than storage category because indatabases it more easy to fetch data with the help of sql database .1. Sql database : azure sql database is a relationaldatabase service that lets you rapidly create ,extend and scale relationalapplications into the cloud.
2.
