Tom Keane on how Microsoft Azure delivers a continuum of compute from cloud to edge

Microsoft Corporation´s Azure Global is a public cloud platform that provides a continuum of compute from the cloud to the edge. Tom Keane says Azure Streams enables customers to process large amounts of data quickly and efficiently. Also, it processes data streams at scale, allowing organizations to manage big data more effectively.


Benefits of moving to the cloud

According to software developer and engineer Tom Keane, today’s enterprise demands a continuum of computers where workloads and applications can be moved. Overall, moved quickly and easily between the cloud and on-premises infrastructure. To make this possible, businesses need access to the right cloud resources for the workloads they need to support today and tomorrow. That’s why Microsoft Azure is uniquely positioned to deliver this compute continuum. 


With Microsoft Azure, businesses can take advantage of its global infrastructure and massive scale to quickly deploy new applications or services. It offers a premium and general availability cloud that supports a wide variety of workloads, including web, mobile, big data, AI/ML and gaming. Also, Tom Keane adds, it has integrated with industry-leading platforms to run its existing applications on Azure efficiently. The company continuously adds new capabilities such as extended memory support3 for memory-intensive workloads.



Tom Keane believes Azure Functions provides customers with an easy way to create custom logic in the cloud. This can be used for various purposes, such as automating processes or responding to events. Functions can be hosted on-premises or in the cloud and run in both public and private clouds. They also support multiple languages and platforms, making them versatile and extensible.
