The A-Z of Microsoft Azure Services
Active Directory: Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) provides identity management and access control capabilities for your cloud applications. You can synchronize your on-premises identities and enable single sign-on to simplify user access to cloud applications.
Application Insights: Application Insights is an all-in-one telemetry solution which can help you detect issues, solve problems, and continuously improve your web applications by providing real time, 360 degree views of your apps across availability, performance and usage.
Automation: Azure Automation allows you to automate the creation, deployment, monitoring, and maintenance of resources in your Azure environment using a highly scalable and reliable workflow execution engine.
Batch: Azure Batch makes it easy to run large-scale parallel and HPC workloads in Azure. You can use Batch to scale-out parallel workloads, manage execution of tasks in a queue, and cloud-enable applications to offload compute jobs in the cloud.
BizTalk Services: Azure BizTalk Services is a powerful and extensible cloud-based integration service that provides Business-to-Business (B2B) and Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) capabilities for delivering cloud and hybrid integration solutions.
CDN: Azure CDN (Content Delivery Network) allows you to deliver high-bandwidth content to end-users around the world with low latency and high availability via a robust network of global data centers.
Data Factory: The data landscape is more varied than ever with unstructured and structured data originating from many cloud and on-premises sources. Data Factory enables you to process on-premises data like SQL Server, together with cloud data like Azure SQL Database, Blobs, and Tables. These data sources can be composed, processed, and monitored through simple, highly available, fault-tolerant data pipelines.
Event Hubs: Azure Event Hubs is a highly scalable publish-subscribe ingestor that can intake millions of events per second so that you can process and analyze the massive amounts of data produced by your connected devices and applications.
HDInsight: Azure HDInsight Service is a Hadoop-based service that brings an Apache Hadoop solution to the cloud. Gain full value of Big Data with a cloud-based data platform that manages data of any type and any size.
Media Services: Azure Media Services offer cloud-based media solutions from many existing technologies including ingest, encoding, format conversion, content protection and both on-demand and live streaming capabilities.
Notification Hubs: Notification Hubs provide a highly scalable, cross-platform push notification infrastructure that enables you to either broadcast push notifications to millions of users at once or tailor notifications to individual users.
Operational Insights: Operational Insights enables you to collect, correlate and visualize all your machine data such as event logs, network logs, performance data and much more from both your on-premises and cloud assets.
Redis Cache: Based on the popular open source Redis Cache, this gives you access to a secure, dedicated cache for your Azure applications.
Scheduler: Azure Scheduler allows you to invoke actions that call HTTP/S endpoints or post messages to a storage queue on any schedule. In Scheduler, you can create jobs that reliably call services either inside or outside of Azure and run those jobs right away, on a regular or irregular schedule, or set them to run at a future date.
StorSimple: StorSimple offers a unique hybrid cloud storage solution which provides primary storage, archive and disaster recovery. Combined with Microsoft Azure, this solution optimizes total storage costs and data protection.
Stream Analytics: Stream Analytics is an event processing engine that helps uncover insights from devices, sensors, cloud infrastructure, and existing data properties in real-time. With out-of-the-box integration to Event Hubs, the combined solution can both ingest millions of events as well as do analytics to better understand patterns, power a dashboard, detect anomalies, or kick off an action while data is being streamed in real-time.
Traffic Manager: Azure Traffic Manager allows you to load balance incoming traffic across multiple hosted Azure services whether they’re running in the same datacenter or across different datacenters around the world.
Visual Studio Online: Visual Studio Online provides a cloud-based Application Lifecycle Management solution that handles everything from hosted code repositories and issue tracking to load testing and automated builds.
