  1. Microsoft Azure Overview Ken Casada Technical Evangelist Microsoft Switzerland kcasada@Microsoft.com

  2. Microsoft Azure Flexible Open Solid

  3. Global Footprint

  4. Pay only for what you use

  5. Windows Azure – Running your Apps • Infrastructure Services (VM) • Cloud Services • Web Sites • Mobile Services Web Apps Applications Multi-tier Apps Mobile Apps Data Data Data Data Firewall Rules Service Model Virtual Network O/S Focus on the Application

  6. IaaS (VM & VNET) Windows Server and Linux Virtual Private Networking Capabilities (VNET)

  7. IP Address Requirements Virtual Machines deployed into a virtual network have an infinite DHCP lease (not static but effectively the same thing) Deploy apps in the cloud that requires Active Directory Hybrid On-Premises Cloud Apps Requirement for connectivity between your data center and the public cloud Connectivity between cloud services Connecting a PaaS to IaaSService (for better performance / there are apps that have dependencies on resources that require VM such as SharePoint, SQL Server, Active Directory,…) Does Your App Need a Virtual Network? Corpnet VM 1 VM 2 Windows Azure Subnet 1 ROLE 1 Subnet 2

  8. Creating a Virtual Private Network

  9. Creating a Virtual Private Network

  10. Howdoes a private IP getallocatedto a VM? - One of the available IP addresses is allocated as the VM is allocated! - The IP address remains the same as long as the VM is allocated. New: - You can statically set a private IP address to a VM (today only via PowerShell) - How? Configurea Static Internal IP Address (DIP) for a VM

  11. Virtual Machines Demo

  12. Built-In Extensions by Microsoft (Demo Summary) BGInfo Extension Display useful server information to the desktop as a wallpaper VMAccess Extension Did you previously lost your IaaS VM password? Are the RDP settings of the VM broken?  With VMAccess you can now reset the password and the username !!! Custom Script Extension Allows you to specify a powershellscript file to run in the VM immediately after it’s created.  http://blogs.msdn.com/b/windowsazure/archive/2014/04/24/automating-vm-customization-tasks-using-custom-script-extension.aspx

  13. Built-In Extensions by Microsoft (Demo Summary) How to enable/ disable BGInfo/VMAccess extensions? How to reset a VM password? How to fix RDP settings?...by using the VMAccess extension…. http://blogs.msdn.com/b/windowsazure/archive/2014/04/11/vm-agent-and-extensions-part-1.aspx How to add the VM Agent on existing VMs? http://blogs.msdn.com/b/windowsazure/archive/2014/04/15/vm-agent-and-extensions-part-2.aspx

  14. EndPoint (Demo Summary) All VM within the same cloud service or VNET can automatically communicate to each other using a private network channel! All other inbound communication (such as traffic initiated from Internet hosts) requires an endpoint. Default Endpoints are created in order to remotely administer your machine • Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) Endpoint  Windows OS • PowerShell Endpoint  Windows OS • Secure Shell (SSH) Endpoint Linux OS Tip: it is possible to define ACL (Access Control List) at the Endpoint level (see http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/azure/dn376541.aspx) • Deny or permit traffic to the endpoint based on remote subnet IPv4 address range • Blacklist IP addresses, …

  15. Load Balanced Set (Demo Summary) mycloudservicednsname EndPoint Public Port (80) Local/Private Port (80) Protocol (TCP/UDP) Name Cloud Service Port 80 VM1 Public Port 80 LB http://mycloudservicednsname.cloudapp.net:80 Port 80 Port 80 VM2 VM3 Port 80 Single Public IP Per Cloud Service (VIP)

  16. Load Balancer Probes (Demo Summary) Load Balancer Probe (default) Set Name Protocol (TCP/HTTP) Probe Port Probe Interval Cloud Service Port 80 Public Port 80 VM1 TCP Probe LB Port 80 Port 80 VM2 VM2 VM3 Port 80

  17. Load Balancer Custom Probes (Demo Summary) Load Balancer Probe (custom) Set Name Protocol (TCP/HTTP) Probe Port Probe Interval Cloud Service Port 80 Public Port 80 VM1 /healthcheck.aspx LB Port 80 Port 80 VM2 /healthcheck.aspx VM3 Port 80 /healthcheck.aspx

  18. What’snew in Networking? • How does a private IP address get allocated to a VM? • - One of the available IP address is allocated as the VM is allocated • - The IP address remains the same as long as the VM is allocated. • New: • - You can statically set a private IP address to a VM (today only via PowerShell) • - How? Configure a Static Internal IP Address (DIP) for a VM • Public IP Reservations (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn690120.aspx) • - you can have static public IP addresses • - up to 5 for free • Instance-Level Public IP Addresses (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn690118.aspx) • - Public address that can be assigned directly to the VM (rather than to the cloud service that your VM resides within) • - i.e. (Outbound traffic originating from the VM goes out with PIP as the source and this uniquely identifies the VM to external entities) • Internal Load Balancing support between VMs that don’t have public facing endpoints(enables to load-balance VM with a private IP address) • Accessible to VM within the same VNET or Cloud Service • How ?  Internal Load balancing / Configure an internalload-balancedset

  19. Web Sites Build with popular web framework (ASP.NET, PHP, Java, Python or Node.js) With a SQL DB or MySQL database Deploy in seconds with  WebDeploy, FTP Source Control Deployment (ex. Git/TFS ) Start for free, scale up as your traffic grows

  20. Web sites Demo

  21. Cloud Services (PaaS) Automated application management Support rich multi-tier architectures Web Role / Worker Role Build stateless highly scalable apps and services

  22. Deploying a cloud service

  23. Packaging and Deployment (Paas) Windows Azure Fabric Controller Package *.cspkg Config *.cscfg Network Load Balancer ServicePackage Upload to Windows Azure Storage Microsoft Visual Studio Web Role Worker Role

  24. Monitoring (Paas) Windows Azure Fabric Controller Network Load Balancer Package

  25. What is a Cloud Service? A collection of related service roles Web Role Worker Role

  26. Applicationbuildingblocks Big data Database Media Storage Traffic Messaging Identity Caching CDN Networking

  27. Azure SQL Database Relational SQL Server Engine in the Cloud Fully Managed Service Enteprise-Ready with automatic support for HA Designed to scale out elastically with demand Azure SQL Database != SQL ServerSQL Server Feature Limitations (Azure SQL Database) DB

  28. Cache Low latency, in-memory distributed cache 3 Types of Cache: • Azure Redis Cache (preview) • Managed Cache Service • In-Role Cache (only for Cloud Services app) We recommend all new developments use the Azure RedisCache!!! Learn more here:http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/services/cache/#redisAzure Redis Cache (Preview)

  29. Traffic Traffic Manager

  30. Windows Azure Traffic Manager Intelligently directs requestsfromusersacross instances of an appdeployed in different Azure datacenter Policy options: Performance: all requests sent to the closestdatacenter Failover: all requests sent to specifieddatacenter, unlessdatacenteris not available RoundRobin: all requestsequallyspreadacross all datacenters Support for externalEndpoints(outside Azure)!!!!

  31. Media Media Services

  32. What Do We Mean by Media Services? Your Choice of Components for Building Custom Media Workflows in the Cloud(you only pay for what you use) Windows Azure Media Services “The Media Services team is working on a long list of upcoming blog updates for the week of the International Broadcasters Convention in Amsterdam starting on September 10th, so stay tuned for more details on our Live Streaming and Content protection services” …from John Deutscher is currently the Principal Program Manager Lead for Azure Media Services….
