Microsoft's new tools help devs manage cloud deployments on the go

Posted May 14, 2017

The conference, which is being held in Seattle, is scheduled to run through tomorrow.

With IoT Edge, Microsoft now makes it easier for developers to move some of their computing needs to these devices.

Nadella also told developers that some 500 million devices now run on Microsoft's latest Windows 10 operating system, creating a huge audience for their software creations.

For those applications which demand traditional relational databases, Microsoft is adding both a MySQL and a PostgreSQL service.

There are a couple downsides to the Microsoft Azure Android app though.

The software king of the world has lifted the kimono on a range of new features at Build, its annual developer conference mostly with a data theme. New services include Bing Custom Search, Custom Vision Service, Custom Decision Service and Video Indexer.

It also sought an exemption to Uzma from reporting to police and requested her repatriation to her homeland. Uzma has also alleged she was given sleeping pills and forcibly brought to Pakistan.

Microsoft executives used demonstrations to provide a glimpse into a near future in which artificial intelligence hosted online works with internet linked devices such as construction site cameras to alert workers of dangers, available tools, or unauthorized activities. Microsoft today announced it is augmenting its data and cloud services offering with Azure Cosmos DB, a database service that the company says scales horizontally with guaranteed uptime, throughput and virtually no latency.

Fanatical Support for Microsoft Azure and Microsoft Office 365 is available in 12 markets across Asia Pacific: Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Macao, Philippines, Bangladesh, Brunei, Nepal and Sri Lanka.

The goal of Azure IoT Edge is to train machine learning models and develop analytics logic in Microsoft's Azure cloud and then push it out to devices on the edge of an IoT network. "Tapping into Azure Cosmos DB gives them planet scale, so they can keep focused on growing their business". A new "app experience" will also be added soon to Teams that will allow end-users to searh for specific applications. During that time, enterprises have been trying to figure out how to get there from here: choosing apps to move, building new ones, managing security controls and extending on-prem footprints to the cloud.

For those unfamiliar with Azure, this is essentially Microsoft's offering in the cloud platform space and is in many ways, not dissimilar to Amazon Web Services (AWS), or Google Cloud Platform (GCP), as it looks to offer the same sort of access and features.

During Build yesterday, Microsoft also demonstrated how it will integrate a variety of its products and services into a sales platform called Tact, which is expected to be released later this year. And not just developers working in the Windows Platform: executive vice president of the Microsoft Cloud and Enterprise group, Scott Guthrie, announced the general availability of Visual Studio for Mac, Microsoft's deeply powerful integrated development environment.
