10 years back, companies were storing everything in-house i.e on their own servers. But over the years with internet speed becoming better, people discovered a new way to store everything, the “Cloud” way! What is Cloud? To understand What is Cloud, let’s first understand why it came into the picture!

Before “Cloud”, companies were storing everything offline i.e hosting websites on their on-premise servers, and adding more servers whenever required. But, there were some problems with this kind of setup. What were these problems? Let’s discuss them using an example in this Azure Tutorial Blog:

  • You own a company which runs a very successful website and let’s imagine the “cloud concept” was not introduced at this time. Therefore your website was hosted on the on-premise servers. Seems normal, right?
  • One fine day, you added a new feature to your website which became a hit over night. Now, your traffic increased multi-folds and the inevitable happened, your website crashed!
  • Woah! That hurts, isn’t it? Well you obviously couldn’t have foreseen this, and even if you did, there was no way you could have spent and bought the required servers, in such a short time. Why? Well, servers are not cheap guys, they are very VERY expensive.

Cloud Problems - Azure Tutorial - Edureka

Let’s say you can afford these many servers, but are you sure about experiencing this much traffic everyday? After you bought the servers and the next day your traffic dropped, what will you do with these servers now? They will be idle most of the time, and hence they become a bad investment on your part.

Become an Azure Cloud Expert!

Now with this example, let’s summarize the problems with the private model in this Azure Tutorial:

  1. This setup is expensive.
  2. Your servers will be idle most of the time.
  3. Every machine is bound to fail one day, maintaining these many servers becomes a tedious task.

To handle these problems we had to come up with a new model of infrastructure. Hence, we came up with Cloud. With cloud computing, all these problems were solved! How?

  • Put your data on Cloud Servers and you are set! No more buying expensive servers.
  • Scalability! Your server capacity will scale up or scale down according to the traffic, that too automatically.
  • Your cloud provider will manage your servers, hence no worries about the underlying infrastructure.

We now understand in this Azure Tutorial, why cloud computing was needed, let’s go ahead and understand what it is exactly?

Azure Tutorial: What is Cloud Computing?

It is the use of remote servers on the internet to store, manage and process data rather than a local server or your personal computer.

Store: Store large or small files on the cloud, which you can access on the go!

Manage: Manage your data with optimized databases on the cloud.

Process: With scalable compute power on the cloud, you can process any amount of data in moments!

Cloud - Azure Tutorial - Edureka

So basically, all these tasks i.e “store, manage and process”, rather than doing it on your personal computer or your private datacenter, you are doing it on the public cloud, and this is what Cloud Computing is all about.

Global Cloud Computing Forecasts and Market Predictions

Here are a few interesting insights provided by the Industry Knowledge Leaders which gives us a very clear perspective as to why understanding and adoption of cloud computing is highly recommended for IT professionals:

Worldwide spending on public cloud services will grow at a 19.4% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from nearly $70B in 2015 to more than $141B in 2019.


By 2019, more than 30 percent of the 100 largest vendors’ new software investments will have shifted from cloud-first to cloud-only.


The Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) market has been growing more than 40 percent in revenue per year since 2011, and it is projected to continue to grow more than 25 percent per year through 2019.


There are basically 3 categories in cloud computing:

  • SaaS (Software as a Service)
    • It allows companies to use software without purchasing them, which reduces the expenditure of the company drastically, since they are already installed on the cloud servers they can be quickly deployed and therefore saves time.
  • PaaS (Platform as a Service)
    • It allows developers to build applications, collaborate on projects without having to purchase or maintain infrastructure.
  • IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service)
    • It allows companies to rent servers, storage space, etc. from a cloud provider.

Service Models - Azure Tutorial - Edureka

Since, there are so many benefits of Cloud Computing, therefore it was just a matter of time that companies understood its market potential. Hence, we have a lot of Cloud Providers today.

Cloud Providers - Azure Tutorial - Edureka

Today, in this blog on Azure Tutorial, I will be discussing about Microsoft Azure which is an IaaS. First, let’s discuss why you are learning Microsoft Azure.

Azure Job Trends

Azure Job Trends - Azure Tutorial - Edureka


The demand for Azure Solutions Architect as can be seen in the trends, and hence it makes sense for you to upgrade yourself to be the master of cloud.

Let’s go ahead in this Azure Tutorial and understand What is Microsoft Azure?

What is Microsoft Azure?

We discussed about the cloud services in this Azure Tutorial right? A company which provides these cloud services, is called a cloud provider. Now, there are a lot of cloud providers out there, one of them Microsoft Azure.

Microsoft Azure is a cloud computing platform created by Microsoft which developers and IT professionals use to build, deploy and manage applications through their global network of datacentres.

What is Azure - Azure Tutorial - Edureka

Azure Management Portal:

Let us see how the management portal for azure looks like:

Azure Management Portal - Azure Tutorial - Edureka

On the left side, all the resources are listed. These resources can broadly be divided into the following categories:

  • Compute
    It is used to process data on the cloud by making use of powerful processors which serve multiple instances at a time.
  • Storage Services
    The storage as the name suggests, is used to store data in the cloud with the ability to scale as and when required. This data can be stored anywhere.
  • Database
    The database domain is used to provide reliable relational and non relational database instances managed by Azure.
  • Networking
    It includes services which provide a variety of networking features such as security, faster access etc.
  • Developer Tools
    It includes services which provides services that ease the ability to code for an organization. For example: it eases the teams to share code, track work and ship software.
  • Management and Monitoring Tools
    It includes services which can be used to manage and monitor your Azure instances.
  • Enterprise Integration
    Services that bring functionalities like seamlessly integrating the enterprise and the cloud.
  • Security and Identity
    It includes services for user authentication or limiting access to a certain set of audience on your Azure resources.
  • Web and Mobile Apps
    These are mainly used to create web apps or mobile apps for any platform and any device.

These were broadly the categories under which the services in Azure are listed. Moving ahead in this Azure Tutorial, let’s dive a little deeper in these categories and discuss each of the services in brief:

Master Azure Concepts with Edureka

That was all about Azure services, lets move ahead in this Azure Tutorial and understand pricing in Microsoft Azure.

Azure Pricing

The most cool thing about Azure is the welcome treat! What welcome treat? The moment you sign-up with Azure you get 200$ worth free credit. Woah! Awesome ain’t it? But it doesn’t end here in this Azure Tutorial, read on. 

Azure follows a pay-as-you go model, meaning you only pay what you use. For example, if you are using a particular instance for say 2 hours, you’ll be only paying for those 2 hours, no more no less. 

With pay-as-you-go, you have budget options as well, where-in you plan to use your instances for a longer duration. There are two options for the same:

  • 12 months plan
  • 6 months plan

With these plans you “reserve” these instances for a longer duration, with a partial or full upfront payment, and you thus save costs!

Apart, from this Azure has this amazing free-tier, wherein you can use some of the services of Azure for free! Yes, you read that right! 

Services - Azure Tutorial - Edureka

The above said services are free with some limitations! All of that can be read here using this link:
