Organizations building Websites and Web applications need to consider several aspects when choosing a Cloud platform and a set of tools. Major considerations include the ability to scale to a large number of hits on demand, the ability to guarantee reliability by having fault tolerance built into the platform and the ability to know that things go wrong before it impacts their own customers. Developers working on those applications need to be able to quickly deploy new versions of their code without degrading their customer’s experience. Azure websites is a differentiated Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) product optimized to solve problems encountered by organizations today.
Azure Websites is a cloud PaaS that was designed from the ground up to provide the kind of scale your enterprise needs. Your engineering team can develop applications using state of the art technologies such as .Net, PHP, Python, Node.JS and Java; and instantly deploy them to the cloud across Azure’s multiple regions. With Azure Websites, your choices are not limited – you can scale your application up (larger servers running your application) and out (more servers running your application). You can automatically scale your application based on site traffic and application behavior.
No matter where you or your customers are located, Azure Websites is right there with you. You can locate your application in North America, South America, Asia and Europe and route traffic using Azure Traffic Manager. Azure Traffic Manager guarantees high availability for application when set to fault tolerance mode or route traffic to the closest data center. Adding more regions, and dynamically adjusting traffic is quick and easy.
With large scale deployments, keeping track of the many moving parts can be a challenge. Azure Websites has the tools you need to keep all the balls in the air without missing a beat. Real-time monitoring and alerting keeps your people in the picture, allowing them to focus on what’s importance and lets your executives sleep well at night.
