Azure Core is Azure's most profitable business and growing incredibly fast! We, the Azure Core Compute team in IDC, pride ourselves in working without boundaries to deliver the cloud platform capable of running any customer application / workload.
And we mean ANY! Think of any large Microsoft service; Teams, Bing, Exchange, Xbox, SQL Azure, Office 365, HDInsight, COSMOS DB .
Or customers such as Accenture, Adobe, Walgreens, Walmart, Flipkart, In-Mobiand the multitude of the large / medium / small shopping, banking, finance, gaming, logistics, enterprises, data analytics / management, storage services of the world.
They run on infrastructure we build.
As the owners of the platform that runssuch a diversity of applications, we need to guarantee QoS for our customers. Metrics like uptime / availability / reliability and service performance take on a new meaning at the scale we operate.
Our customers want 5 9’s+ of availability, transparent maintenance & updates to their systems, resiliency of their workloads despite H / W and system failures that happen all the time in the datacentre, ability to deploy & dynamically scale large number of VMs / containers reliably.
Ensuring the QoS at scale requires us to architect and build systems across all layersand we work on architectural improvements across the entire Azure Core stack (Azure Compute Manager, Azure Host OS and Host Agent, Compute Resource Provider, Azure Networking etc) to achieve the SLAs.
