You can get started in Azure. But soon it becomes time to build your subscriptions for your enterprise. For example, giving unrestricted access to developers can make your devs very agile, but it can also lead to unintended cost consequences. In addition, you will want to have requirements to demonstrate compliance for security, monitoring, and resource access control.
In this article we help organize some thoughts around the strategy and plan for building out your cloud, including a plan that you can put into Azure DevOps.
Containers give you a way to run you application in a controlled environment, isolated from other applications running on the machine and from the underlying infrastructure.
It means that when you go to deploy, all the dependencies are published together. So you can finally say, “It worked on my machine” and mean it. All the dependencies with the same versions in your container will be there when you deploy to the cloud.
You can provide single-sign in to your application by started with a few lines of code. A new wizard in Azure Active Directory documentation makes that easier than ever. A new Azure AD v2.0 endpoint introduces you integrate to simplify your code for your users to log in. with their Microsoft account and work and school accounts.
Azure Content Delivery Network (CDN) is designed to send audio, video, applications, images, and other files faster and more reliably to customers using servers that are closest to each user. If you want to put binary files and blobs closer to your user, then CDN can be the right solution.
The CDN caches publicly available objects at strategically placed locations to provide maximum bandwidth for delivering content to users.
Essentially, when a user wants some content, the first user gets the data from the source server. When you use a CDN, that data is then cached at a site near the user. So subsequent users can get the data from the cache instead of going all the way back to the source server. For example, if a picture stored in a blob is in a European data center in Azure, a user in Portland Oregon would be able to access the file from a server set up in Seattle, making your image load much faster.
