Its been long time I did not publish my blog. There was a reason behind that. Its been very important in technology world that you always upgrade your knowledge with new technologies. I was going through the same process. Today I am going to share my experience of new skill that I learnt recently yes, its Microsoft Azure.
Microsoft Azure is turning point in this era of Cloud technology. There were many cloud service providers in the Market like AWS, Google Cloud, Alibaba etc. However, Azure design is simple and at the same time all the latest technology has been adopted.
Let’s try to understand what Cloud is first. This is for people who is new in Cloud Technology.
Cloud Technology is the process of renting IT infrastructure in terms of Services. In simple words when you need new computer or server, now you don’t need to purchase. However, you can go to any of the cloud service providers and ask for computer or server. They will give you computers and servers on rent. The best part is they even don’t charge upfront fees. They will charge you based on how many hours or minutes you have used that computer or server. This goes for all the IT devices like Network device, storage and Memory etc.
