As you’ve seen lately, I tried bringing you guys the most info from SharePoint Conference 2012 for the ones who couldn’t attend.
I couldn’t attend either, however Patrick Guimonet who is a SharePoint MVP is there and is sharing content on his own Blog but in French. I asked him if I could share the content he has but in English so more people can have access to the information and he thought it’s a good idea.
Here are the slides from the Windows Azure IaaS Deep Dive for SharePoint IT Professionals Presentation. If you want to read the post in French or want to visit the original post, you can find it here [#SPC12 ] SPC036 Windows Azure IaaS Deep Dive for SharePoint IT Professionals
To Begin with, What is IaaS? What does it stand for?
Here is a small Definition:
Infrastructure as a Service is a provision model in which an organization outsources the equipment used to support operations, including storage, hardware, servers and networking components. The service provider owns the equipment and is responsible for housing, running and maintaining it. The client typically pays on a per-use basis.
Characteristics and components of IaaS include:
- Utility computing service and billing model.
- Automation of administrative tasks.
- Dynamic scaling.
- Desktop virtualization.
- Policy-based services.
- Internet connectivity.
IaaS is one of three main categories of cloud computing service. The other two are Software as a Service (SaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS).
Infrastructure as a Service is sometimes referred to as Hardware as a Service (HaaS).
