PaaS is about abstracting developers from the underlying infrastructure to enable applications to quickly be composed.SaaS – applications that are delivered using a service delivery model where organizations can simply consume and use the application. Typically an organization would pay for the use of the application or the application could be monetized through ad revenue.It is important to note that these 3 types of services may exist independently of one another or combined with one another.SaaS offerings needn’t be developed upon PaaS offerings although solutions built on PaaS offerings are often delivered as SaaS.PaaS offerings also needn’t expose IaaS and there’s more to PaaS than just running platforms on IaaS.

Some of these components can be provided by traditional hosters – in fact most of them have moved to having a virtualized offering.Very few actually provide an OSThe customer is still responsible for managing the OS through the Applications.For the developer, an obvious benefit with IaaS is that it frees the developer from many concerns when provisioning physical or virtual machines.This was one of the earliest and primary use cases for Amazon Web Services Elastic Cloud Compute (EC2).Developers were able to readily provision virtual machines (AMIs) on EC2, develop and test solutions and, often, run the results ‘in production’.The only requirement was a credit card to pay for the services.PaaSWith Platform as a Service, everything from the network connectivity through the runtime is provided and managed by the platform vendor.The Windows Azure best fits in this category today.In fact because we don’t provide access to the underlying virtualization or operating system today, we’re often referred to as not providing IaaS.PaaS offerings further reduce the developer burden by additionally supporting the platform runtime and related application services.With PaaS, the developer can, almost immediately, begin creating the business logic for an application.Potentially, the increases in productivity are considerable and, because the hardware and operational aspects of the cloud platform are also managed by the cloud platform provider, applications can quickly be taken from an idea to reality very quickly.SaaSFinally, with SaaS, a vendor provides the application and abstracts you from all of the underlying components.Networking
5 Windows AzureComprehensive set of services that enable you to quickly build, deploy and manage applications across a global network of Microsoft-managed datacentersFlexibleOpenSolidSlide Objectives:Provide a high level summary of Windows Azure and what it enables at a high levelSpeaking Points:What is Azure?FlexibleWindows Azure is now more flexible then ever beforeWindows Azure helped pioneer the concept of Platform as a ServiceIt provides a rich set of managed services enabling you to compose applications.We’re now making those services richer.With the June update we have now have enabled infrastructure as a service.Including the ability to host and deploy durable virtual machines in the cloud running both Windows and LinuxOpenSome of you maybe surprised to hear Linux at a Microsoft conference.Our support of linux is just one example of how we’re embracing openness in a fundamental new way.With the June release we are supporting more operating systems, more languages, and more open protocolsReleasing all of the Azure SDKs on GitHub under an open source license.SummaryWe believe the end result is truly a unique modelYou can now use both platform as a service and infrastructure as a service *together*You can now use the best of the Microsoft ecosystem and the best of the open source ecosystem *together*Enabling you to build better and more scalable solutions.Notes:Comprehensive set of services that enable you to build, host and scale applications in Microsoft datacentersWindows Azure is an open and flexible cloud platform that enables you to quickly build, deploy and manage applications across a global network of Microsoft- managed datacenters. You can build applications using any language, tool or framework. And you can integrate your public cloud applications with your existing IT environment.
6 Global Footprint Slide Objectives: Speaking Points: Windows Azure runs on datacenters around the worldEnabling you to deploy and run applications and infrastructure close to your customers.Notes:Windows Azure services such as compute and storage are now available in 8 worldwide datacenters with an additional 24 Content Delivery Network endpoints.You can’t have a real cloud without a data center.

16 Use Case – Auckland Airport 2 Interesting Esponder report. While searching the social media tool for an incident at Auckland Airport were alerted by tweets to a plane in trouble that was approaching the airport.An officer rang the airport and ascertained that an international flight coming into land had to shut down an engine due to a fire. AK Airport staff were amazed that we (NIC) new about this as they had only just been formally notified. Some real time information that has the potential to show the value of Esponder technology.
