A managed services model is a distinct kind of outsourcing that covers all IT functions. This is also known as the fully outsourced model. In a managed services model, the provider takes over all the technology decisions. However, these decision must be within the parameters that the business has set. The only significant role the business has in the managed services model is to review the processes. The managed IT service provider is a company that works remotely to manage their customer’s IT infrastructure and/or end-user systems. This is a proactive approach and part of a subscription model.

Microsoft Azure

Microsoft Azure, formerly known as Windows Azure, is Microsoft's public cloud computing platform. It provides a range of cloud services, including those for compute, analytics, storage and networking. Users can pick and choose from these services to develop and scale new applications, or run existing applications, in the public cloud

Azure for DR and backup

Just as they can with other public cloud platforms, some organizations use Azure for data backup and disaster recovery (DR). In addition, some organizations use Azure as an alternative to their own data center. Rather than invest in local servers and storage, these organizations choose to run some, or all, of their business applications in Azure. To ensure availability, Microsoft has Azure data centers located around the world. As of July 2018, Microsoft Azure services are available in 54 regions, spread across 140 countries. As not all services are available in all regions, Azure users must ensure that workload and data storage locations comply with all prevailing compliance requirements or other legislation.

Azure pricing and costs

As with other public cloud providers, Azure primarily uses a pay-as-you-go pricing model that charges based on usage. However, if a single application uses multiple Azure services, each service might involve multiple pricing tiers. In addition, if a user makes a long-term commitment to certain services, such as compute instances, Microsoft offers a discounted rate. Given the many factors involved in cloud service pricing, an organization should review and manage its cloud usage to minimize costs. Azure-native tools, such as Azure Cost Management, can help to monitor, visualize and optimize cloud spend. It's also possible to use third-party tools, such as Cloudability or RightScale, to manage Azure resource usage and associated costs.

Azure competition

Microsoft Azure is one of several major public cloud service providers operating on a large global scale. Other major providers include Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Amazon Web Services (AWS) and IBM. Currently, there is a lack of standardization among cloud services or capabilities -- meaning no two cloud providers offer the same service in the exact same way, using the same APIs or integrations. This makes it difficult for a business to use more than one public cloud provider to pursue a multi-cloud strategy, although, third-party cloud management tools can reduce some of these challenges.

Data Center

We live in an information-driven world. And with that comes an incessant need to collect and process it. We collect our banking transaction receipts so we can keep track of our finances, businesses keep track of buying information so they can tailor their marketing campaigns, and governments keep track of revenues and salaries so they can calculate the appropriate levels of tax. It is a constantly repeating cycle that looks to never end. So how do we cope with it? How do businesses and governments, in particular, get on top of it all? As you might expect, there are many possibilities. One that frequently comes to mind is the data center.A data center architecture is a description of the organization or arrangement of the computing resources (CPU's, storage, communications, and software) that a data center contains. As you might imagine, there are virtually an unlimited number of data center architectures possible. This is only limited by the number of each resource a business can afford to include. Still, we generally don't talk about data center architectures in terms of the possible variations, but rather, in terms of their basic use. The next section will look more closely at this
