Microsoft's new tools help devs manage cloud deployments on the go

May 14, 2017, 09:22

Azure IoT Edge, in preview, enables Azure applications to leverage this compute capability, executing Azure Functions to be executed directly on the IoT endpoints at the data collection source.

CEO Satya Nadella also pointed out one edge that Microsoft still has over Amazon: its massive reach in enterprises.

"But in choosing Microsoft Azure we have access to a highly secure, global cloud that offers data redundancy in multiple in-country locations for business continuity - something that's an absolute prerequisite for us given we operate a high-availability business". Microsoft today announced it is augmenting its data and cloud services offering with Azure Cosmos DB, a database service that the company says scales horizontally with guaranteed uptime, throughput and virtually no latency.

"It is a pretty fantastic world you can create using intelligent cloud and intelligent edge".

Azure IoT Edge arrived in preview.

Turn-key connectivity to the Azure IoT Hub that offers reliable and secure device-to-cloud and cloud-to-device messaging, scaling to millions of devices. As White noted, Carnival Cruise Line, for example, is deploying Azure Stack on some of its ships - not to allow developers to code while they're cruising, but to allow Carnival to write an application once and then run that same code in the cloud or on the water.

At its Build developer conference in Seattle on Wednesday, Microsoft launched a range of tools created to make corporate database software, used to power everything from internal systems and records to public-facing websites, more smoothly integrate into the company's Azure platform. And Visual Studio Team Services integration allows for continuous integration and deployment of these containerized applications.

Developers will also be able to publish new apps to Microsoft Teams, a chat-based workspace in Office 365. New services include Bing Custom Search, Custom Vision Service, Custom Decision Service and Video Indexer.

Electronic signature technology provider DocuSign announced on Wednesday at the Microsoft Build 2017 conference in Seattle that it has selected Microsoft Azure as its preferred cloud vendor to help it scale and extend its reach to Canada.
