A Multi-Cloud Solution using Azure & AWS

A Multi-Cloud Solution using Azure & AWS

While some cloud users are evaluating AWS vs. Azure, many enterprises are planning to use both cloud providers to avoid vendor lock-in and latency while creating redundancy. While Azure is now the clear #2 in public cloud behind AWS there are some notable differences between how the two hyper-clouds operate and the best practices for deploying workloads in each to create a multi-cloud solution that can optimize for cost and performance.

  3. The Cloud is changing the world 3

  4. Why the cloud? • Rapidly setup environments to drive business

    priorities • Scale to meet peak demands • Increase daily activities, efficiency and reduced cost. 4

  6. Public Cloud In the public cloud, you get quick access

    to compute, storage, app hosting and more — as much as you need, when you need it. The hardware is located outside of your data center and is shared with other customers, which keeps prices low. 6
  7. Private Cloud Get the agility, scalability and efficiency of the

    public cloud, with the greater levels of control and security of a single-tenant, dedicated environment. It can be hosted on-site at your own data center or at a service provider’s data center. 7
  8. Hybrid Cloud Sometimes the best environment for a workload is

    one that combines both public cloud, private cloud and single-tenant dedicated environments. 8
  9. What Does "Multi-Cloud" Mean? • “Multi-cloud” describes an environment that

    relies on multiple clouds — such as Microsoft® Azure® or AWS. • For instance, you may be running a workload that requires large pools of storage and networking resources on a private cloud. • At the same time, you may have a workload that needs to scale up or down quickly on a public cloud, such as Microsoft Azure or AWS. Each workload is running on the ideal cloud, but now you have multiple clouds to manage. 9

  13. List of DevOps Practices • Infrastructure as Code (IaC) •

    Continuous Integration • Automated Testing • Continuous Deployment • Release Management • App Performance Monitoring • Load Testing & Auto-Scale • Availability Monitoring • Change/Configuration Management • Feature Flags • Automated Environment De-Provisioning • Self Service Environments • Automated Recovery (Rollback & Roll-Forward) • Hypothesis Driven Development • Testing in Production • Fault Injection • Usage Monitoring/User Telemetry http://www.itproguy.com/devops-practices/
  14. What is Infrastructure as Code (IaC) ? Infrastructure as Code

    (IaC) is the process of managing and provisioning computing infrastructure (processes, bare-metal servers, virtual servers, etc.) and their configuration through machine-processable definition files, rather than physical hardware configuration or the use of interactive configuration tools. 14

  22. Windows on Google Cloud Platform (GCP) You may not know

    this, but Google Cloud Platform supports Windows Server 2008, 2012 and 2016. It also supports SQL Server versions 2012, 2014 and 2016 Standard, Web and Enterprise editions (with High Availability). You can deploy your ASP.NET Windows apps to Compute Engine or your ASP.NET Core apps to App Engine or Container Engine (Google’s hosted Kubernetes environment). .NET and .NET Core libraries are there for all 200+ google.com and cloud services in NuGet; lead by Jon Skeet of Stackoverflow fame! You can use Visual Studio to manage your GCP resources and deploy your existing apps. You get Stackdriver logging, error reporting, and tracing support for .NET and .NET Core. PowerShell cmdlets for GCP, which run on Windows and Linux. Plus you get a great set of partners to bring your Windows/.NET workloads to GCP, including Capgemini, Neudesic and Magenic.

  29. Azure & AWS Regions Azure (38 regions, 30 online) •

    Region pairs in a geo-political area for cross- region DR scenarios • A region is a massive Microsoft owned and purpose built Data Center (DC) • DC’s have multiple layers of hardware and software redundancy for HA • Region to Region traffic over Microsoft backbone AWS (18 regions, 16 online) • No geo-political region pairs, regions are not disaster proof • A region is a collection of smaller owned and Colo DC’s called Availability Zones (AZ’s) – 47 in total • AZ’s are well connected across flood plains and within a short car journey for HA • Region to Region traffic over public internet https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/cloud-platform/global-datacenters 29
