Azure Solutions

Codit exclusively uses Microsoft technology. If it isn't for the expertise, it's for the passion

Microsoft Azure provides enterprise connectivity from anywhere, any device. Azure is an open and flexible cloud platform that enables you to quickly build, deploy and manage applications. You can build scalable web and mobile front-ends in the cloud and seamlessly connect them to internal enterprise data and processes. Extend your enterprise applications to mobile devices to achieve a robust, scalable, secure, and responsive mobile solution with multiple device platform support. With Azure, you can be quick and responsive as never before.

Benefits

Always up. Always on.
Azure delivers a 99.95% compute SLA and enables you to build and run highly available applications without focusing on the infrastructure. It provides automatic OS and service patching, built in network load balancing and resiliency to hardware failure. It supports a deployment model that enables you to upgrade your application without downtime.

Open
Azure enables you to use any language, framework, or tool to build applications. Features and services are exposed using open REST protocols. The Azure client libraries are available for multiple programming languages, and are released under an open source license and hosted on GitHub.

Unlimited servers. Unlimited storage.
Azure enables you to easily scale your applications to any size. It is a fully automated self-service platform that allows you to provision resources within minutes. Elastically grow or shrink your resource usage based on your needs. You only pay for the resources your application uses. Azure is available in multiple datacenters around the world, enabling you to deploy your applications close to customers.

Capabilities & Services

Azure delivers a flexible cloud platform that can satisfy any application need.

  • It enables you to reliably host and scale out your application code within compute roles.
  • You can store data using relational SQL databases, NoSQL table stores, and unstructured blob stores, and optionally use Hadoop and business intelligence services to data-mine it.
  • You can take advantage of Azure’s robust messaging capabilities to enable scalable distributed applications, as well as deliver hybrid solutions that run across a cloud and on-premises enterprise environment.
  • Azure’s distributed caching and CDN services allow you to reduce latency and deliver great application performance anywhere in the world.

Create web and mobile apps for any platform and any device

  • Create and deploy mission critical web apps at scale
    App Service is designed for building and hosting secure mission-critical applications. Easily scale applications up or down on demand, and get high availability within and across different geographical regions.

  • Build and host the backed for any mobile app
    With the Mobile Apps feature of Azure App Service, it’s easy to rapidly build engaging cross-platform and native apps for iOS, Android, Windows or Mac. Store app data in the cloud, authenticate users, send push notifications or add your custom backend logic.

  • Automate the use of data across clouds
    The Logic Apps feature of Azure App Service helps keep your marketing and analytics SaaS apps in sync. Extend business processes in minutes. Boost sales productivity by reducing data entry. Model all of these processes and more using an intuitive visual design language.
  • Easily build and consume cloud APIs
    API Apps makes it easy to secure your APIs with Azure Active Directory. API Apps provides simple access control for your API apps. With no changes to your code, you can expose APIs only to other apps inside your organization or to the whole public. API Apps lets you take your new and existing APIs and automatically generate SDKs for a variety of languages.

Build and operate always-on, scalable and distributed applications

  • Fast time to market
    Service Fabric lets developers focus on building features that add business value to their application. Architecting fine-grained micro service applications allows continuous integration practices and accelerates delivery of new functions into the application.

  • Choose your architecture
    Build stateless or stateful micro services—an architectural approach where complex applications are composed of small, independently versioned services—to power the most complex, low-latency, data-intensive scenarios and scale them into the cloud.
  • Operate reliable hyper-scale services
    Deliver fast in-place upgrades with zero downtime, auto-scaling, integrated health monitoring, and service healing.
  • Rely on a battle-tested platform
    Service Fabric was born out of years of experience at Microsoft delivering mission-critical cloud services and is now production-proven for over five years. It’s the foundational technology on which Microsoft runs Azure core infrastructure, powering services including Skype for Business, Intune, Azure Event Hubs, Azure Data Factory, Azure DocumentDB, Azure SQL Database and Bing Cortana.

Scalable, cross-platform push notification infrastructure

  • Fast broadcast to millions of devices
    Azure Notification Hubs is a massively scalable mobile push notification engine for quickly sending millions of notifications to iOS, Android, Windows, or Kindle devices and more. Quickly scale to millions of mobile devices and billions of notifications without re-architecting or sharding.

  • Works with any back end
    Notification Hubs is flexible enough to plug into any backend—.NET, PHP, Java, Node.js—whether it’s located on-premises or in the cloud. This makes it easier to instantly update your mobile apps and engage your customers.
  • Target any audience with dynamic tags
    Broadcast push notifications to everyone at once or target specific user devices using the Notification Hubs tagging feature. Tags let you segment users based on activity, interest, location, or preference, to make sure you deliver the right content to the right person at the right time.
  • Make localization easier with templates
    If your app covers multiple markets, the templates feature of Notification Hubs provides a handy way to send localized push notifications, subsequently you’re speaking to customers in their languages.

It’s all about the cloud 

Nowadays, working only on-premises is an exception. As the cloud boom recently exploded, organizations can’t deny the cloud improves their operational efficiency and enables a much greater insight into all data. It is scalable, fast-time-to-value, adapts itself based on your requirements and offers a fully self-service.  

Nevertheless, making your apps available, anywhere, anytime is not that easy. Every day new features and functionalities are added and applications continuously change. It’s hard to remain better and faster than your competitors. If you can’t follow the demand of today’s customers you could lose your business. For example, an e-commerce site that’s down for even a short time will drive customers to one of many competitors that can serve them at that moment, says Mark Russinovich in his Microsoft Azure blog 

These challenges ask developers to adopt an application architecture model called “microservices”, which means designing software applications composed of independently deployable services. But how and why can a microservices architecture help with application development and lifecycle tasks? And what are the capabilities that platforms can provide to support those architectures? 

 

Some clients we helped

Many companies still believe switching to the cloud is a risk. We believe it is the future and see it as a very strong commercial argument.
