Microsoft Azure Data Canter

Azure is Microsoft’s Public cloud solution and infrastructure platform.

It provides all or some parts of your enterprise’s Data Center to be run on Azure data centers scattered around the world.

Azure Data Centers are unique, global IT-standard physical structures that host a group of networked computer servers and are located in different geographic regions of the world.

 

What is advantages of Azure?

  • Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) capabilities
  • Scalability and Flexibility
  • Unique Hybrid Abilities
  • Environments Integrated with Other Microsoft Tools
  • Security

Neden Azure ?

Each Azure region consists of multiple data centers. A large amount of redundancy is provided at each physical location.

Azure has more global regions than any other cloud provider. Customers have the flexibility to deploy applications whenever they need it. Separate pricing and service availability may be provided in an Azure region.

An Azure geography is a separate market, typically containing at least one or more regions for data residency and maintaining compliance boundaries. Geographies allow customers with specific data residency and compliance needs to keep their data and applications close. Geographies are fault-tolerant to withstand region-wide outages through connections to Azure’s dedicated high-capacity network infrastructure.

Azure also has geo-redundancy. You can configure your infrastructure as locally redundant or geo-redundant storage in an Azure region.

Geo-redundant storage also replicates your infrastructure in another Azure region. With geo-redundant storage, your Azure backups will be kept as a minimum of 6 copies, 3 copies in the local Azure region and 3 copies in the geo-redundant Azure region. In which regions your data will be replicated is chosen by Azure within the same geopolitical boundary as your Azure region. After choosing your default region and geo-redundant storage, Azure will replicate your data in the mapped region.

Azure has a global presence, you can choose an Azure region close to or far from your physical location to suitable your redundancy needs.

You can decide which Azure region is the right location for your needs by checking the Azure region maps.

Unique physical locations within an Azure region consisting of one or more data centers equipped with independent power, cooling, and networking.

It provides high availability to protect your data from data center failures.

Management (managed by Microsoft) networks and customer networks are isolated in Azure to improve performance and ensure that traffic moving on the platform is secure.

Management networks can only be used for devices and administrators to connect to Azure and are managed by Microsoft. When devices or administrators want to connect to Azure, checks are made, accessibility is limited so that unauthorized people cannot access the Azure network. Network cabling, equipment that supports and secures the network, and the integration of systems to monitor the network are managed by Microsoft.

Customer networks are separated from management networks using network virtualization methods to protect them from attacks targeting the management networks. Customer networks are separated from each other using network virtualization methods. Thus, customers cannot access other customers’ networks.

Data on the Azure platform is always encrypted in transit, except for data moving in customer-controlled networks. It is the customer’s responsibility to encrypt data on a network it controls.

Azure secure networks have built-in mechanisms to protect against DDos attacks. DDos attacks aim to block access to services by generating too much data traffic to exceed capacity. DDoS guards constantly monitor traffic, detect and deflect these attacks.

Microsoft isolates networks, secures data, and actively combats DDoS attacks.
