Microsoft Azure Portal

Microsoft Azure Portal

  • One of the other things we do with Azure to enable that is provide a bunch of Application Building Blocks. These are managed services that we run to provide a lot of value so you can avoid setting up the infrastructure for common capabilities.
  • You can provision VMs and put anything you want in it but in a lot of cases you will find that we have built-in services that are delivered by Microsoft and their partners. What’s cool is that you can use any of these services with a VM, with a Web App, or with a Cloud Service – so you have flexibility in how you will consume them.
  • Some Important Services:
  • Media Service: Azure Media Services powers consumer and enterprise streaming solutions worldwide. Combining powerful and highly scalable cloud-based encoding, encryption and streaming components, Media Services helps customers with valuable and premium video content easily reach larger audiences on today’s most popular digital devices, such as tablets and mobile phones
  • Service Bus: Azure Service Bus is a generic, cloud-based messaging system for connecting just about anything—applications, services and devices—wherever they are. Connect apps running on Azure, on-premises systems, or both. You can even use Service Bus to connect household appliances, sensors and other devices like tablets or phones to a central application or to each other.Search Service: Azure Search makes it easy to add powerful and sophisticated search capabilities to your website or application. The integrated Microsoft natural language stack, also used in Bing and Office, has been improved over 16 years of development.
  • Business Analytics – It allows you to easily build reporting capabilities into your Azure application. SQL Azure Reporting provides many of the features you know from SQL Server Reporting to create reports with tables, charts, maps etc. and more and deploy them on both private and public clouds. Reports can be exported to popular file formats such as Excel, Word, PDF, XML etc. You can use Business Intelligence Design Studio and Sql Server Tools to deploy your reports onto the cloud reporting server.
  • HD Insight – It is the Apache Hadoop based Service for Azure that lets you analyze data so big that relational databases can’t handle.
  • Caching – It provides distributed in memory cache service for Azure and SQL database applications.
  • Access Control – It is a service that allows makes it easier for an application to accept identity information from Facebook, Google, Windows Live ID, and other popular identity providers. Rather than requiring the application to understand the diverse data formats and protocols used by each of these providers, Access Control translates all of them into a single common format.
  • Azure AD Graph provides programmatic access to read data in Azure Active Directory (AD) through REST API endpoints.
  •  Azure Authentication Library (AAL) makes it very easy for developers to add to their client applications the logic for authenticating users to Azure Active Directory or their providers of choice, and obtain access tokens for securing API calls.

Subscribing to Azure:

Free trial: This gives you a $200 credit and a month to try out any combination of resources in Azure. Visit https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/free/

  1. MSDN subscriptions: If you have an MSDN subscription, you get a specific amount in Azure credit each month. For example, if you have a Visual Studio Premium with MSDN subscription, you get $100 per month in Azure credit.
  2. Pay-as-you-go: With this subscription, you pay for what you use by attaching a credit card or debit card to the account. If you are an organization, you also can be approved for invoicing.
  3. Enterprise agreements: With an enterprise agreement, you commit to using a certain amount of services in Azure over the next year, and you pay that amount ahead of time.

The management portal of Azure is an interface to configure and control Azure services and applications (Storage, Virtual Machines, SQL Database, Virtual Network etc…).

  1. Azure Classic Portal (Formerly called as Azure Management Portal):
  2. Microsoft Azure Portal (Formerly called as Preview Portal) – Now it’s a Production Portal: https://portal.azure.com/

Journey and Blades

The portal is organized as journeys. A journey is a series of blades, which are containers for the different components.

The components within the blades are called parts, which look like tiles.

The new portal contains the following user interface elements:

  • Dashboard: The home page for your Azure environment. You can pin commonly used items to the dashboard to make it easier to navigate to them. By default, the dashboard includes tiles that show the global Azure service health, a shortcut to the Azure gallery of available services, and a summary of billing information for your subscriptions.
  • Panes in which you can view and configure the details of a selected item. Each blade displays as a pane in the user interface, often containing a list of services or other items that you can click to open other blades. New blades open to the right side. In this way, you can navigate through several blades to view the details of a specific item in your Azure environment. You can maximize and minimize some blades to optimize the screen space and simplify navigation.
  • Hub menu. A bar on the left side of the page, which contains the following icons:
  1. Home: Returns the page to the left side so that the Hub menu and dashboard are visible.
  2. Notifications: Opens a blade on which you can view notifications about the status of tasks.
  3. Browse: Starts a journey to view the details of a service in your Azure environment.
  4. Billing: Provides details about charges and the remaining credit for your subscriptions. Billing is also available on a resource group basis.
  5. New: Creates a new service in your Azure environment.

Note: You can also use Windows PowerShell and Azure CLI (Command Line Interface) to manage your Azure environment. Visual Studio also provides lots of Tools for managing Azure Resources and Creating and publishing Web sites.

Managing Account Subscriptions Portal:

From Microsoft Azure Portal you can view and edit your subscription, including usage statistics and billing details. You can also edit your profile.

To open the subscriptions page: Portal => Account name à View my bill. It will navigate you to https://account.windowsazure.com/Subscriptions

The following options are available on the subscriptions page:

  • Change payment method
  • Download usage details
  • Contact Microsoft support
  • Edit subscription details
  • Change subscription address
  • View partner information
  • Cancel your subscription

Adding co-administrators: When you provision an Azure subscription, you automatically become the administrator for that subscription, and you can manage all the services and settings for the subscription.

You can add co-administrators: Azure classic portal à Expand Subscription (top right) à Manage Administrators   

Azure Resource groups:

A resource group is a container that holds related resources (maybe a virtual machine, storage account, and virtual network, or a web app, database, database server, and 3rd party services) for an application. The resource group could include all of the resources for an application, or only those resources that are logically grouped together.

There are some important factors to consider when defining your resource group:

  1. All of the resources in your group must share the same lifecycle. You will deploy, update and delete them together. If one resource, such as a database server, needs to exist on a different deployment cycle it should be in another resource group.
  2. Each resource can only exist in one resource group.
  3. You can add or remove a resource to a resource group at any time.
  4. You can move a resource from one resource group to another group.
  5. A resource group can contain resources that reside in different regions.
  6. A resource group can be used to scope access control for administrative actions.

To Setup Environment for developing Azure Applications:

Deployment Models in Cloud Computing:

There are three main Deployment Models in Cloud Computing.

    1. Public Cloud:
      • These are the clouds which are open for use by general public and they exist beyond the firewall of an organization, fully hosted and managed by vendors.
      • Your data is store in the provider’s data center and provider is responsible for the management, maintenance of the data center.
      • Because you are sharing computing resources among a network of users, the public cloud offers greater flexibility and cost savings.
      • This is a good option if your demand for computing resources fluctuates. You have to purchase the capacity on the basis of usage and can scale up or scale down server capabilities based on traffic and other dynamic requirements.
      • This type of cloud environment is appealing to many companies because it reduces lead times in testing and deploying new products.
      • Cons: They are more vulnerable than private clouds and there is no control of resources used or who shares them.
      • Note: Even though you don’t control the security of a public cloud, all of your data remains separate from others and security breaches of public clouds are extremely rare.

2.Private Clouds:

    • A private cloud hosting solution, also known as an internal or enterprise cloud, resides on company’s intranet or hosted data center where all of your data is protect behind a firewall.
    • This can be a great option for companies who already have expensive data centers because they can use their current infrastructure.
    • You go for a private cloud when you have strict security and data privacy
    • Cons: The main drawback people see with a private cloud is that all management, maintenance, and updating of data centers is the responsibility of the company.


    3.Hybrid Clouds

    • They consist of external and internal providers, namely a mix of public and private clouds.
    • Secure & critical apps are managed by an organization and the not-so-critical & secure apps by the third party vendor.
    • For example, you can use a public cloud to interact with the clients but keep their data secure within a private cloud. Most companies are now switching to Hybrid clouds.
    • Ideal in situations where you have planned is to migrate to a complete cloud solution as existing hardware expires or you have some applications or hardware that are not ready for the cloud.

Cloud Computing Service Models

*Free Demo Video! Click here

Cloud Computing = Software as a Service (SaaS)+ Platform as a Service (PaaS)+ Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
Cloud Computing Service Models:
1)    IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service):

  1. Delivers computer infrastructure, typically a platform virtualization environment as a service.
  2. Cloud providers build datacenters, managing power, scale, hardware, networking, storage, distributed system, etc…
  3. Rather than purchasing servers, software, data center space or network equipment, clients instead buy those resources  fully outsourced service.
  4. Eg: Amazon Web Services(AWS), Rackspace Hosting, VMWare, Citrix, Azure

2) PaaS (Platform as a Service):

  1. Provides developer’s necessary tools to create, test, host and maintain created applications.
  2. Cloud providers offer an Internet-based platform to developers who create services but don’t want to build their own cloud.
  3. Ex: Microsoft Azure, Google App, AWS

3)  SaaS (Software as a Service):

  1. SaaS is a software delivery methodology that provides licensed multi-tenant access to software and its functions remotely as a Web-based service.
  2. From the end, user’s point of view apps are locat in the cloud and it is almost always accessible through a web browser.
  3. Any application hosted on a remote server can be access over the Internet is considered as SaaS.
  4. Usually billed based on usage and a multi-tenant environment.
  5. Ex: Microsoft Azure, Gmail, Google Apps (Office-like features), Sales Force CRM

Types of Azure storage data services

Types of Azure storage data services: Blob storage, File storage, and Queue storage. Blob storage supports both standard and premium storage, with premium storage using only SSDs for the fastest performance possible. Another feature is cool storage, allowing you to store large amounts of rarely access data for a lower cost.

Types of Azure storage data services

SQL Database Service

  • SQL Database is a Database-as-a-Service (DaaS) offering that makes SQL databases accessible for cloud developers.
  • Developers do not have to install setup or manage any database.
  • It also has full support for TSQL programming language, programmability support through manage ADO.NET access, Native ODBC, PHP as well as JDBC.
  • There are many tools available for migration of databases as well as data to and from SQL Server and SQL Database.

 Storage Service

  • Azure Storage is massively scalable, durable and highly available so you can store and process hundreds of terabytes of data to support the big data scenarios required by scientific, financial analysis, and media applications. Or you can store the small amounts of data required for a small business website.
  • Azure Storage also provides the storage foundation for Azure Virtual Machines.
  • Azure Storage currently stores tens of trillions of unique customer objects and handles millions of requests per second on average.
  • A storage account gives you access to the Azure storage data services:

Types of Azure storage data services

  1. Blob storage
  2. Table storage
  3. Queue storage
  4. File storage

CosmosDB Service

Azure DocumentDB is a NoSQL document database service designed from the ground up to natively support JSON and JavaScript directly inside the database engine. It is the right solution for applications that run in the cloud when predictable throughput, low latency, and flexible query are key

Azure Network Services:

 Virtual Networks:

  • An Azure virtual network (VNet) is a representation of your own network in the cloud. It is a logical isolation of the Azure cloud dedicated to your subscription.
  • You can fully control the IP address blocks, DNS settings, security policies and route tables within this network.
  • You can also further segment your VNet into subnets and launch Azure IaaS virtual machines (VMs) and/or Cloud services (PaaS role instances).
  • In essence, you can expand your network to Azure, with complete control on IP address blocks with the benefit of enterprise scale Azure provides.

Content Delivery Network:

  • It is a service to deliver high bandwidth content. For example, if you enable CDN access to a storage account, in which you use a BLOB, it is stored at a location which is closer to the user and thus improves the performance by using maximum bandwidth.

Azure Application Services:

  • One of the other things we do with Azure to enable that is provide a bunch of Application Building Blocks. These are managed services that we run to provide a lot of value so you can avoid setting up the infrastructure for common capabilities.
  • You can provision VMs and put anything you want in it but in a lot of cases you will find that we have built-in services that are delivered by Microsoft and their partners. What’s cool is that you can use any of these services with a VM, with a Web App, or with a Cloud Service – so you have flexibility in how you will consume them.
  • Some Important Services:
  • Media Service: Azure Media Services powers consumer and enterprise streaming solutions worldwide. Combining powerful and highly scalable cloud-based encoding, encryption and streaming components, Media Services helps customers with valuable and premium video content easily reach larger audiences on today’s most popular digital devices, such as tablets and mobile phones
  • Service Bus: Azure Service Bus is a generic, cloud-based messaging system for connecting just about anything—applications, services and devices—wherever they are. Connect apps running on Azure, on-premises systems, or both. You can even use Service Bus to connect household appliances, sensors and other devices like tablets or phones to a central application or to each other.
  • Search Service: Azure Search makes it easy to add powerful and sophisticated search capabilities to your website or application. The integrated Microsoft natural language stack, also used in Bing and Office, has been improved over 16 years of development.
  • Business Analytics – It allows you to easily build reporting capabilities into your Azure application. SQL Azure Reporting provides many of the features you know from SQL Server Reporting to create reports with tables, charts, maps etc. and more and deploy them on both private and public clouds. Reports can be exported to popular file formats such as Excel, Word, PDF, XML etc. You can use Business Intelligence Design Studio and Sql Server Tools to deploy your reports onto the cloud reporting server.
  • HD Insight – It is the Apache Hadoop based Service for Azure that lets you analyze data so big that relational databases can’t handle.
  • Caching – It provides distributed in-memory cache service for Azure and SQL database applications.
  • Access Control – It is a service that allows makes it easier for an application to accept identity information from Facebook, Google, Windows Live ID, and other popular identity providers. Rather than requiring the application to understand the diverse data formats and protocols used by each of these providers, Access Control translates all of them into a single common format.
  • Azure AD Graph provides programmatic access to read data in Azure Active Directory (AD) through REST API endpoints.
  • Azure Authentication Library (AAL) makes it very easy for developers to add to their client applications the logic for authenticating users to Azure Active Directory or their providers of choice, and obtain access tokens for securing API calls.

Cloud Computing and Characteristics

Cloud Computing and Characteristics: A consumer can unilaterally provision computing capabilities, such as server time and network storage, as needed automatically without requiring human interaction with each service provider.

  • Cloud is just a metaphor for the internet when we say cloud, we are just referring to the internet.
  • In the simplest terms, cloud computing means storing and accessing data and programs over the Internet instead of our local computer’s hard drive.
  • The phrase cloud computing means “a type of Internet-based computing” where different services such as servers, storage, and applications are delivered to an organization’s computers and devices through the Internet.
  • Cloud Computing refers to a variety of services available over the Internet that deliver computing functionality on the service provider’s infrastructure.
  • A cloud computing service consists of highly optimized data centers (third-party data centers from the end user point of view), that provide various hardware, software and information resources (when needed).
  • Cloud platform hides the complexity and details of the underlying infrastructure from users and applications by providing a very simple graphical interface or API (Applications Programming Interface).
  • The Cloud platform provides on-demand services that are always on, anywhere, anytime and anyplace.

 Why are businesses moving to cloud?

In traditional hosting, a software company has to deal with licensing costs, protection of data, frequent upgrades to latest technologies, maintenance and up gradation of hardware and most important finding the right skill sets at the right time.

Cloud Computing and Characteristics that distinguish it from traditional hosting.

  • Remotely host: Services or data are hosts on remote infrastructure.
  • Ubiquitous: Services or data are available from anywhere through internet.
  • Resiliency: Cloud providers generally mirrors solutions to multiple data centers to minimize downtime in the event of a disaster.
  • On-demand self-service: A consumer can himself provision computing capabilities, such as server time and network storage, as needed automatically without requiring human interaction with each service’s provider. It is sold on demand mostly by the minutes or hours. (Pay as you go model)
  • Rapid elasticity – A user can utilize as much or little of the cloud service as required.
  • For example resources (ex: web servers) on the cloud can be scale to meet high traffic in peak times or scale down in times of less traffic.
  • Broad network access– Capabilities are available over the network and access through standard mechanisms that promote use by heterogeneous thin or thick client platforms (e.g., mobile phones, laptops, and PDAs).
  • Fully managed by the provider. The user abstract from the details of how the service is managed in the cloud. For example, the user need not worry about aspects such as hardware used, software updates and patches, plug-ins, web security. There is an optimum utilization of resources and as well as sharing of resources. Everything taken care of by the provider.

    1. IaaS

      As previously mentioned, Azure is a leader for IaaS, which enables you to build, deploy and manage apps more quickly and easily. IaaS enables your company to create your own Web app or launch your own website without having to buy and maintain the underlying infrastructure. Your organization has the ability to customize your cloud software to meet your exact needs.

    2. Enhanced flexibility and scalability:

      Azure is extremely flexible and provides you the option to consume any level of functionality you require. It supports the same technologies many developers and IT professionals already rely on. You can rapidly deploy and change your Web apps to Azure with no downtime. This means less time to worry about the infrastructure, and more time devoted to your applications. It’s also a pay-as-you-go service, so you can quickly adjust capacity according to your business fluctuations and needs.

    3. Unique storage:

      Azure has more data centers and delivery points than most other cloud services. This allows Azure to deliver content faster and provide an optimal user experience. You can store any type of data in a reliable and fast environment and share it across virtual machines (VMs).

    4.  Extend your existing IT:

      Azure doesn’t make you choose between your datacenter and the cloud. It easily integrates with your existing IT environment through secure private connections, hybrid database and storage solutions. Your assets stay where you need them. This makes Azure extremely cost-effective and less complex.

    5. Strong analytics support:

      Azure provides built-in support for analyzing data and key insights. They provide managed SQL services, Machine Learning, Cortana Analytics and Stream Analytics. Your business will be able to make smarter decisions, improve customer service and uncover new business opportunities.
