AZ-900 Notes: Compute

Core Compute products available in Azure

Azure compute is an on-demand computing service for running cloud-based applications.

There are four common techniques for performing compute in Azure:

1. Virtual machines

Virtual machines, or VMs, are software emulations of physical computers. They include a virtual processor, memory, storage, and networking resources. Azure Virtual Machines (VMs) let you create and use virtual machines in the cloud. They provide infrastructure as a service (IaaS)

Detailed Notes: Here

2. Containers

Containers are a virtualization environment for running applications. Just like virtual machines, containers run on top of a host operating system.

3. Azure App Service:

Azure App Service is a platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offering in Azure that is designed to host enterprise-grade web-oriented applications.

Detailed Notes: Here

4. Serverless computing

Serverless computing is the abstraction of servers, infrastructure, and OSs.
Azure takes care of managing the server infrastructure and allocation/deallocation of resources based on demand.
