WHAT IS microsoft Windows Azure?

Windows Azure is a cloud computing platform and infrastructure, created by Microsoft, for building, deploying and managing applications and services. It provides both platform as a service (PaaS) and infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and supports many different programming languages, tools and frameworks, including both Microsoft-specific and third-party software and systems. Hosted Hyper-V is a key addition to Microsoft’s Azure product offerings and provides complete end-to-end functionality for enterprise-grade virtualization. Hosted Hyper-V is a server virtualization product developed by Microsoft Corporation, which provides virtualization services through hypervisor or virtual machine. Hosted Hyper-V with Azure services has not been available locally until now. Anyone wanting Azure services would need to consider hosting their infrastructure overseas. Global Micro is one of nine providers in the world to deploy a local instance of Azure


Using a local hosting partner does have some key benefits over hosting your data in a foreign country:

  • International Law –Microsoft services are hosted abroad and are subject to the US Patriot Act and other European statutes. Using a service hosted in South Africa ensures that foreign governments and courts will never have jurisdiction over your data
  • Costs – Monthly fees are billed in South African Rand and and predictable. The pricing for international services are subject to an exchange rate quarterly adjustment
  • Potential Speed and Latency Issues – International hosting is based in Ireland and thus customers will use international bandwidth to access the service. Local Hosting ensures a lower cost while delivering higher performance
  • Migration Assistance – The Partner Hosted service includes optional migration services that will help you and your to simply and effortlessly transition to the cloud


  • Consolidation of hardware resources– Multiple physical servers can be easily consolidated into comparatively fewer servers which can be managed or unmanaged by GMS
  • Ease of deployment – Consolidation of existing servers into fewer physical servers simplifies deployment and thus testing and development allows for a wide variety of scenarios in a safe, self-contained environment with no down time
  • Hyper-V Management Console – Allows for provisioning / management of new virtual machines. Customers can use their own System Centre license to manage their Hyper-V environment seamlessly
