A comprehensive study on Microsoft azure cloud services, architecture and controls implementation
Microsoft Azure is one of leading public cloud service platform from Microsoft Corporation. It provides almost the entire cloud delivery model services (SaaS, IaaS and PaaS) deployed across different Microsoft and partner managed hosting data centers across the world. Azure provides a central interface called management portal for management of most of the azure services to consumers . As we know industry still facing lots of cloud related challenges due to lack of standards, especially in the area of security where customers are still not confident to share their critical and confidential information and data with some third party service provider. Some concerns are truly valid but some concerns are there due to lack of knowledge and misconceptions. One of the best ways to understand all of the gaps and challenges is to first understand the cloud computing architecture and all related security implementations of any one of the leading cloud service provider, and then do a deep dive to understand all open gaps and challenges. In this paper I am going to explain the basic architecture and security implementations of the Microsoft Azure cloud delivery model. After reading this paper you would able to read and understand any of the cloud service provider cloud architecture and security implementations as all are running with some basic common architecture and service implementations.
