Azure for the Semiconductor Industry

Cloud computing is empowering digital transformation across industries. Silicon is the foundation of the technology industry, and new opportunities are emerging in cloud computing for silicon (semiconductor) development. The workflows for silicon development have pushed the limits of compute, storage, and networking. Over time, these workflows have expanded to handle the increasing size, density, and manufacturing complexity of the industry. This has pushed the limits of high-performance computing (HPC) and storage infrastructure. Azure provides a globally available HPC platform that’s reliable and scalable. It offers an array of security tools and capabilities, and it meets current and emerging infrastructure needs with a silicon design and development workflow based on EDA software. Read this white paper to learn more about configuring Azure services for silicon development.

SQL Server database files and backups on Azure Storage for SAP workloads

As more users migrate their SAP workloads to Azure, they will discover the benefits of migrating the Microsoft SQL Server data tier as well. Storing SQL Server data files on Azure can help speed migration, improve security, and provide high availability and disaster recovery.
