IaaS: Infrastructure as a Service

An IaaS cloud vendor runs and manages server farms running virtualization software, enabling you to create VMs that run on the vendor’s infrastructure. Depending on the vendor, you can create a VM running Windows or Linux and install anything you want on it.

Some of the services available under IaaS in Azure are:

  • Virtual Machines. Provision Windows and Linux virtual machines in seconds
  • Container Instances. Easily run containers with a single command
  • Traffic Manager. Route incoming traffic for high performance and availability
  • Azure DNS. Host your DNS domain in the Cloud

Azure also provides the ability to set up virtual networks, load balancers, and storage and to use many other services that run on its infrastructure. You don’t have control over the hardware or virtualization software, but you do have control over most everything else. In fact, unlike PaaS, in the case of Iaas, you are completely responsible for the deployment, maintenance, monitoring, and scaling of resources to run your application.

Microsoft Azure Storage

Azure Storage is Microsoft's cloud storage solution for modern data storage scenarios. Azure Storage offers a massively scalable object store for data objects, a file system service for the cloud, a messaging store for reliable messaging, and a NoSQL store. 

Azure Storage includes these data services:

  • Azure Blobs: A massively scalable object store for text and binary data.
  • Azure Files: Managed file shares for cloud or on-premises deployments.
  • Azure Queues: A messaging store for reliable messaging between application components.
  • Azure Tables: A NoSQL store for schemaless storage of structured data.

All access to data in storage happens through storage accounts. An Azure storage account provides a unique namespace to store and access your Azure Storage data objects.
