Microsoft Infrastructure For Empowering The Modern Workplace
Let’s continue our journey of modern workplace with the top IT architecture or infrastructure platforms by Microsoft.
Microsoft started to leave the data centers and go onto the cloud as technology advanced. It now has more opportunities due mainly to cloud-based infrastructure, which has changed how it manages the IT infrastructure. Microsoft continues to develop and adapt in an IT environment that is constantly evolving, and so we are.
Microsoft has moved the almost the entire infrastructure to the Microsoft Azure cloud. Don’ believe? Let’s eyewitness this scenario with Microsoft’s own words.
“We’re a global IT organization that strives to meet Microsoft business needs. Azure is the default platform for our IT infrastructure. We host 98 percent of our IT infrastructure in the cloud. Here are a few details:
- 175,000 employees
- 150 countries
- 587 locations
- 1,400 Azure subscriptions
- 1,600 Azure-based applications
- 11,000 Azure infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) virtual machines
- 643,000 managed devices”
With these powerful development platforms by Microsoft, let’s modernize your business rapidly.
The modern workplace is fast-paced, and the cost constantly increases beyond our imagination. The hybrid cloud from Microsoft Azure and the Azure administration portal gives exceptional efficiency and cost-effectiveness.
According to Microsoft,
“As our IT infrastructure has evolved from traditional datacenters to hybrid cloud infrastructure, so have our tools for managing IT infrastructure. With Azure as the primary platform for infrastructure, we are adopting Azure management tools for monitoring, updating, backup, and security.”
To design, test, deploy, and manage enterprise applications while utilizing the benefits of cloud computing, Azure seamlessly integrates the cloud services you require. Businesses can start small and quickly scale the application as the industry demands increase by hosting the applications in Azure.
The architecture and security of apps are evolving due to the cloud. Applications are divided into more minor, decentralized services rather than being built as monoliths. These services communicate through asynchronous messaging, or APIs. Applications add new instances as needed to scale horizontally.
These trends present modern challenges. The distribution of application states. Asynchronously and in parallel, operations are carried out. Applications need to be resilient in the face of failures. Applications are frequently the target of malicious attackers. Automated and predictable deployments are required. Telemetry and monitoring are essential for understanding
Microsoft Power Platform
Step into the workplace of the future. With the Microsoft stack, you can reinvent your traditional processes, work with diverse teams, and explore the power of modern apps and automation.
