In this blog I will be talking about the Top 10 elements of Cloud.

Virtual Network: Create a logically isolated section in Microsoft Azure and securely connect it outward.

VM: Windows Azure Virtual Machines is a scalable, on-demand IaaS platform you can use to quickly provision and deploy server workloads into the cloud. Once deployed, you can then configure, manage, and monitor those virtual machines, load-balance traffic between them.

Azure Storage: Microsoft Azure Storage is a Microsoft-managed cloud service that provides storage that is highly available, secure, durable, scalable, and redundant.

Load Balancer: A load balancer that distributes incoming traffic among backend virtual machine instances.

Azure Traffic Manager: Microsoft Azure Traffic Manager allows you to control the distribution of user traffic for service endpoints in the different datacentre.

Application Gateway: Scalable layer-7 load balancer offering various traffic routing rules and SSL termination for the backend.

Business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR): BCDR plan is a plan to keep your data safe, and apps/workloads running when planned and unplanned outages occur.

Azure Active Directory:  (Azure AD) is Microsoft’s Cloud-Based identity and access management service, which helps your employees sign in and access.

Azure Backup: Simple and reliable server backup to the cloud.

Reliable off site data

A simple and integrated solution

a) Familiar interface
b) Windows Azure integration

Efficient backup and recovery

a) Efficient use of bandwidth and storage
b) Flexible configuration
c) Flexibility in recovery
d) Cost-effective and metered by usage

Content Delivery Network (CDN) is a distributed computing model designed for developers to stream high-bandwidth files faster, efficiently, and reliably to worldwide customers. Azure CDN is typically used for delivering static content such as Images, Videos, Style sheets, documents, files, Client-side scripts, and HTML pages to customers using servers that are closest to users.

 App Service Plan: App Service plans to represent the collection of physical resources used to host your apps.
