Microsoft Azure is a public cloud platform featuring powerful on-demand infrastructure and solutions for building and deploying applications workloads as well as a wide variety of IT and application services. You can use Azure as a public cloud provider and as a hybrid extension to existing on-premises infrastructure. Organizations that use Microsoft solutions on-premises are able to extend their infrastructure and operational processes to Azure.
With the growing popularity of Azure, today’s systems administrators need to acquire and strengthen their skills on this fast-growing public cloud platform. In this guide we explore the Azure public cloud platform with a focus on the Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) features. We cover general architectural features of the Azure cloud including geographic regions, availability zones, and Service Level Agreements (SLAs) attached to the core Azure IaaS infrastructure.

If your business is like many other
organizations that are in the process of
enabling a Microsoft Azure public cloud
platform, then you might be struggling
with the guardrails needed to secure
and manage cost, while at the same
time enabling flexibility for the teams
consuming cloud services.
While the Azure platform is already
very secure, it also allows a great deal
of flexibility in configuration. In order
to avoid accidentally creating security
holes and out-of-control spend, a
Governance Framework is required. We
created the AHEAD Azure Governance
framework to allow enterprises to
develop and maintain a fully optimized,
and secure environment. The resulting
framework will be tailored to your
organization’s specific business and
compliance needs, as every enterprise
is different. This guide will introduce you
to the components of this necessary
Azure Foundational Governance Design.
Many enterprises have
VMware tools into their
environments and are now
looking to reap the benefits of
the cloud. But this migration
isn’t as easy as flipping a
switch, especially if you’re
looking to continue running
your VMware environment.
The ability to utilize your
existing VMware tools on
an AWS platform can result
in a more cost-effective,
simplified cloud experience,
allowing organizations to
begin their cloud journey by
moving workloads closer to
native cloud services. In this
document, we will review
ideal use cases for VMware
on AWS (VMC).

WAN edge infrastructure is changing rapidly as I&O leaders responsible for networking face dynamic business requirements, including new application architectures and on-premises and cloud-based deployment models. I&O leaders can use this research to identify vendors that best fit their requirements. By year-end 2023, more than 90% of WAN edge infrastructure refresh initiatives will be based on virtualized customer premises equipment (vCPE) platforms or software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) software/appliances versus traditional routers (up from less than 40% today).
The most significant IT transformation of this century is the rapid adoption of cloud-based applications. Most organizations are now dependent on a number of SaaS and IaaS platforms to deliver customer satisfaction and empower employee productivity. IT teams are responsible for delivering a high quality user experience for cloud applications while they struggle to manage a secure environment with advanced persistent threats. The WAN is the fabric to connect and control access between remote users and cloud-based applications. The WAN fabric needs to identify application type, location, apply prioritization and route traffic across the appropriate (multiple) WAN links to deliver on user experience. Different types of users/devices connecting to the cloud (via the Internet) means security policies must be enforced at branch, data center and in the cloud.
You need to be ready to host any application anywhere. Our solution adapts to support all of your applications with the simplicity of hyperconvergence. If your IT organization is like most, you are stretched thin to support your developers as they create multicloud-native applications that they deploy across public and private clouds. And you still need to support line-of-business managers with traditional applications as they use both monolithic and cloud deployment models.
