In this blog, I will talk about Barriers in the Adoption of Public Cloud Platforms like Microsoft Azure.
Microsoft Azure is a public cloud platform. It means it is a technology that has computing resources available in data centres around the world, which are accessible over the Internet.
The answer to this question, which I generally give whenever asked, that it’s not about Security. It is all about Trust because let’s say if we are running our own data centre, then we are responsible for every network and infrastructure related settings, and that everything is safe. But if we are hosting our application in public cloud platforms, it will their responsibility to take care of all such things.
So, start trusting the Public Cloud Provider, like Microsoft. Start trying small things and later on the trust can be built. People always say that they will not put their critical data in public cloud, but at the same time, same people share those critical documents on Dropbox or Google Drive.
The other question which I want to address here is – Will public cloud datacentres be up when they are needed? This question is related to Availability
I will say we should not compare the cloud platforms uptime, means how perfect they are. Infact, we should compare their uptime with our own data centres, because they will be at-least as good as our own promises with financial penalties. If there are failures, there are financial penalties. There are SLAs too.

Many people ask me that whether Microsoft Azure and Office 365 are same. They also have a confusion in Azure and Office 365 certifications and its related resources. In other words, people have confusion in understanding that what Azure and Office 365 is.
In this article, I will give overview of Microsoft Azure and Office 365 and their certifications.

As per Microsoft,
Microsoft Azure is a growing collection of integrated cloud services, which developers and IT professionals use to build, deploy and manage applications through our global network of datacentres. With Azure, you get the freedom to build and deploy wherever you want, using the tools, applications and frameworks of your choice.

In nutshell, we can say that Microsoft Azure is kind of Infrastructure in the Cloud where users need to create and patch the configurations of their software. Microsoft Office 365 is a Software as a Service (SaaS) which is managed and routinely upgraded by Microsoft.
