Microsoft has reveled in a news recently that a total of $33.1 billion (£25.7bn) of revenue by focusing on Ai technology. With distributed computing on the rise, Microsoft has assisted organizations with its Azure services and has invested more on Azure platform.
Most fortune companies are on a journey towards cloud migration and Microsoft is assisting them to utilize its Azure platform to ease their cloud transformation journey. Microsoft’s, once termed as, productivity suite is now the productivity cloud comprising of powerful Office 365 features and assisting companies with Ai based approach to a better digital transformation journey. Microsoft is taking further steps to make revenue growth form Windows commercial products as reported by ZDnet. To cater for real world and changing business needs, Microsoft is focusing on service provision along with revenue expansion both for the company and its clients.
Microsoft has expanded its cloud centers towards Germany and Switzerland and taking further steps to enhance cloud-first move for organizations.
Technology has evolved over the years and changed the way work flows in almost every field like academics, business and the focus of today’s post: Banking.
Banking industry opts the best-in-line security-based technology infrastructure to gain a competitive edge and to offer better and secure financial services to customers. Microsoft has contributed a lot to meet the growing needs of banking industry of which Microsoft Cloud is the most important contribution.
Microsoft Cloud adheres to all the compliance and security rules and policies needed by a regulation compliant bank to offer secured services to its customers. Not only Microsoft cloud is able to scale and grow the banking services according to the customer base. With Automatic updates (including security updates) being one of the essential features, the process of updates has been streamlined. The best thing about using Microsoft Cloud is that it introduces transparency of processes into the system. Hence, making business processes are streamlined making the High officials stay in Control of financial information.
The concept of “born-in-the-cloud” is seldom confused with “cloud-enabled” or “cloud-native”. However, there is a significant deference between these terms.
A solution that was “born in the cloud” means a solution that is exclusively meant to be delivered by the cloud and does not involve any legacy systems. The solutions that are cloud-enabled are the solutions that were originally designed for a traditional datacenter and then eventually plunked into the cloud. this is originally a legacy product. They are single-tenant and difficult to scale.
In case of cloud native systems, they are built form ground up approach using micro-services. They are multi-tenant and are easily scalable. Hence the concepts of “born-in-the-cloud” and “cloud-native” are close enough but have a huge difference with “cloud-enabled” solution.
Companies prefer to adopt cloud-native solutions. With cloud-native solutions, there is no hassle of the Infrastructure upon it is delivered and built. Many vendors are now trying to offer cloud-enabled version of their products.
Microsoft Hyper-V is a collection of multiple technologies running efficiently to form the basis of business private cloud space. It includes, hardware, software, management processes and business processes integration. Hence Hyper-V is the platform where your entire virtual infrastructure resides. Hyper-V is the virtualization platform and Hypervisor technology is software on which multiple virtual machines can run by controlling the hardware and allocating resources to each VM operating system.
The key to good virtualization is the hardware on which the virtual infrastructure is present. Constructing a virtual environment requires white-boxing approach. If a reliable hardware is not chosen for the virtual infrastructure, the infrastructure shall collapse. An optimized hardware is necessary with decent connecting of all pieces together. There are four core resource areas to Hyper – V: Processing, storage , memory, and networking. These four points combine together to produce private clouds under Hyper- V. Apart from these core concepts there is another side to Hyper- V and that is the management processes that run as the core business element on Virtual infrastructure.
