Cloud isn’t just a buzz word anymore. We all are using Cloud one way or other. And in this cloud race, Microsoft has done a tremendous job of building an entire stack of offerings and platforms in Azure. Some of the Azure Cloud solutions include the ability to build virtual data centers, migrate on-prem data centers to “Infrastructure as a Service” platform, run disaster recovery, enable business continuity, or migrate to other Microsoft Cloud platform offerings (i.e. O365).

As you migrate or deploy more workloads, especially around Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and Platform as a service (PaaS) platforms, administration, and management optimization opportunities emerge due to the manual configuration and administration to keep things in order.
