Azure DevOps

Azure DevOps is Microsoft’s SaaS platform that combines tools
for work planning, collaborative code development, and building and deploying applications.

It unites developers, project managers and other specialists involved in the work on the project in a single network.

Optimize your software development cycle with Azure DevOps

  • Quickly deliver solutions to your users with robust, flexible tools to plan, track, and communicate with your teams.
  • Create, host, and collaborate with your team to add CI/CD Pipeline artifacts in one click.
  • Build, test, and deploy your solution with a regular CI/CD Pipeline that supports the most popular cloud platforms and programming languages.
  • Test solutions regularly and deliver reliable services with a suite of automated and manual testing tools.
  • Get unlimited private Git repositories with the ability to connect through any Git client, development environment or code editor. Improve code quality with code review tools. Use semantic search, which takes into account the context of the request, defines classes and variables.

Azure site recovery

Azure Site Recovery is a cloud-based IT infrastructure replication solution that ensures business continuity by keeping applications and workloads healthy during disruptions.

This is achieved by replicating workloads running on physical computers and virtual machines from the primary site to the secondary location. If the company’s main IT infrastructure fails, then thanks to Azure Site Recovery, a switch to the backup infrastructure is performed. Since this is a complete replica of the working infrastructure, the user continues to work as usual.

There are two ways for further use: to restore the main IT infrastructure and switch users to it from the backup one or continue working on the backup infrastructure in the cloud.

3 replication scenarios:

  1. Azure VMs from one Azure region to another
  2. Local virtual Hyper-V, VMware machines and physical servers (Windows, Linux)
  3. AWS Cloud Instances on Azure

Key benefits of using a comprehensive disaster recovery solution, Azure Site Recovery:

  • Easy to deploy and manage
  • Reducing infrastructure costs
  • Minimizing downtime with reliable recovery
  • Support for different environments

Azure Synapse Analytics

Azure Synapse Analytics is a unified analytics platform that combines big data, data warehouses, and data integration into a single cloud service for end-to-end analytics.

This allows you to query data using serverless or dedicated capacity on a large scale. Azure Synapse combines these capabilities by providing a single interface to ingest, explore, prepare, transform, manage, and serve data for critical business intelligence and machine learning needs.

  • Storage of corporate data
    Build a mission-critical data warehouse based on a proven, high-performance SQL engine.
  • Examining the data array
    Combining relational and non-relational data and querying files from a dataset from the same service where they are stored.
  • Hybrid data integration without code
    Create ETL and ELT processes in a visual environment without code to easily accept data from over 95 custom connectors.
  • Integration of Apache Spark and SQL modules
    Increasing collaboration between data scientists working on advanced analytics solutions. Using T-SQL queries both in your data warehouse and in Spark modules.
  • Data log and telemetry analytics
    Leverage leading text indexing technologies to extract actionable insights from time series, logs, and telemetry data using the distributed query engine in Azure Synapse.
  • Language selection
    Use your preferred language, including T-SQL, KQL, Python, Scala, Spark SQL, and .NET, regardless of whether your resources are serverless or dedicated.
  • Cloud HTAP Solution
    Get insights from real-time transactional data in operational databases (such as Azure Cosmos DB).

Azure Virtual Desktop

Cloud-based desktop and application virtualization solution. Provides desktop and application access from any device, anywhere, anytime.

What are the business opportunities offered by Azure Virtual Desktop?

  • Deliver desktops from Windows 10 and Windows 11 to any device, anywhere in the world. With AVD, employees get a solution that is fully optimized for Windows 10, Windows 11, and Microsoft 365 with multi-session capabilities.
  • Organization of security and compliance with the requirements of enterprise applications and data. Using strong Azure security features by default to mitigate potential risks and take corrective action.
  • Simplified deployment and management. The Azure portal allows you to configure network settings, add users, deploy desktops and applications, and enable security with just a few clicks. Citrix and VMware customers can also simplify the delivery of virtual desktops and applications using Azure.
  • Migrate existing Remote Desktop Services, Windows Server desktops and applications to any computer.
  • Reduce costs with multi-session and available licenses. Cost optimization is achieved through the appropriate Microsoft 365 or Windows licenses already in use in the company. Multi-session support for Windows 10 and Windows 11 reduces infrastructure costs. The company only pays for what it uses.

Database migration on Azure

Migrate data from the most common database management systems to Azure. The Database Migration Service supports major migration scenarios including SQL Server, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and MongoDB.
