There’s been a tremendous change all around us, and we may be too close to it to take notice!
Most of us still come from a time when the approach to running computer applications was simple and straightforward. Basically:
- You bought or selected a server computer
- You loaded your application onto that computer
- You loaded client software into all your user’s computers
- You either used your existing network, or had one built for you
- You ran the application and basically hoped for the best
In many cases, you went ahead and hired people to run the applications on the computers for you. You weren’t sure how to choose the right person with the right skills, and you weren’t sure exactly how best to manage them. Still, you knew you couldn’t do it yourself, so you hired people.
Then Came the Cloud
From the beginning, many hoped the emergence of cloud computing would take the burden of operating computers and networks away from them, and they could cease employing people who they didn’t know how to manage or evaluate.
Not so much.
Even though the computers disappeared, there was still need for the network, and the applications still had to be administered, monitored, and managed. There was still much operational work to be done.
Going to the Next Level
Microsoft’s introduction of the Azure cloud service redefined the sophistication and the scope of services available from the cloud. Attracted to the advantages, many customers have moved their applications and workloads to the world’s most advanced cloud service, Azure.
It should come as no surprise that there was still a need for operational personnel even when using Azure.
There is a community team of experts who have been doing that kind of operational work, and much more, on Azure for many years. They have gathered to create a set of automated services and services provided by an expert team that can now be accessed and used by any Azure customer anywhere.
