  14. Context

  15. Design Principles • Rock solid fundamentals • Platform for business-critical applications • Lower TCO • Uses cloud characteristics to lower TCO • Better together • Comprehensive platform for complete solutions • Inter-operability • Enables interaction with other environments

  16. Rock Solid Fundamentals • Security • Performance and reliability • High availability • Scale out • Multi-tenancy

  17. Lower TCO • Higher level of abstraction • Manage services, not servers • Manage data, not databases • Reduces cost of development & operations • Access to shared resources • Various levels of multi-tenancy • Reduces cost of entry & operations • Familiar programming models • Reduces cost of development & maintenance

  18. Better Together • One stop shop for required functionality • Location affinity • Co-located services in locations across the globe • One project • Manage software components across the platform • One bill • Consistent usage-based billing models • View and manage one bill across the platform • Shared functionality • Microsoft Pinpoint, Microsoft Codename “Dallas”, …
