1. Computing Applications
Microsoft azure allows the use of Software as a Service (SaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), and Platform as a service (PaaS). Azure empowers developers to manage and publish websites using PHP, Node.Js, ASP.NET, and Python, through different protocols from Git, FTP, user portal, and Mercurial.
2. Identity Management
Azure active directory offers identity management services to synchronize on-premises directories, sign-on, consumer identity, access management, and connect with virtual machines for specific domains.
3. Mobile Applications
Azure mobile services also collect and provide real-time analytics for monitoring user behavior. Users can also use services for building, distributing, and testing mobile apps.
4. Storage Applications
Disk storage, blog storage, Queue storage, and File storage using different protocols using REST, SDK APIs on the cloud.
5. Data Management Applications
Microsoft Azure offers data explorers for working with Big Data analytics and data exploration features. Azure Data Lake is a highly scalable data integration solution to manage significant data workload and empowers professionals to run a large number of parallel queries. Other essential concepts include Cosmo DB (NoSQL), Redis Cache, StorSimple, comprehensive search, SQL database, Synapse analytics, HDInsight, and serverless features through Azure Stream Analytics.
6. Messaging Applications
Microsoft Azure Service Bus has a service-oriented architecture (SOA) that allows both on or off-premises devices to build more scalable and complex applications. It provides support with four different types of messaging mechanisms.
Event Hubs, for the events and telemetry ingress at low latency, higher reliability, and at an unprecedented level. Queues for seamless communications.<div>
Topics provide communication for subscriber patterns with more specific filter attributes.
Relays for bi-directional communication and passes thoroughly without saving.
