Breaking news: Så kom der IaaS på Azure!

Det er ikke så tit jeg får lov til at lave en breaking news – so here goes Winking smile

meetwindowsazure.com har vi netop annonceret næste generation af Azure som bla. indeholder IaaS – altså muligheden for at hoste virtuelle maskiner på Azure. Det betyder at man nu kan lave ”Lift and drop”, fra on-premise til Azure og omvendt.

Det er stort!

Set ud fra et platformsperspektiv, så har IaaS manglet. PaaS kræver at man designer applikationen til scale-out, hvilket medfører at tilstand gemmes centalt i en database eller Azure Storage. Ikke alle applikationer kan umiddelbart skrives om til PaaS (f.eks. Sharepoint).

Men nu har du mulighed for at lave dit eget image, eller anvende nogle af de images der ligger i kataloget på Azure. I selv samme katalog ligger blandt andet images med: Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008 R2 med SQL Server 2012, Windows Server 8, OpenSuse, SUSE Linux Enterprise, Ubunto og CentOs.

Vil du f.eks. hoste Sharepoint så kunne du vælge en Windows Server 2008 R2 fra kataloget og installere Sharepoint ovenpå, eller lave dit eget image og uploade det.

Når vi kender priserne vil prisberegningssiden blive opdateret.

    Microsoft released the most significant upgrade yet to Windows Azure, the company announced this week, along with new tooling and language support so that developers can code against the updated cloud platform.

    The revamped service, which will provide persistent virtual machines and support for Linux instances, promises to significantly enhance Microsoft's public cloud offering by allowing enterprises to shift applications and workloads from their datacenters to Windows Azure (and vice versa), creating hybrid clouds. By adding Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) to its Platform as a Service (PaaS) portfolio, Microsoft is also mounting its most formidable challenge yet to Amazon Web Services.
