The goal of this project was to research two current topics on cloud computing and cloud application deployment that we have not been covered extensively in the MIS 3406 course, Cloud Architecture. I decided to look into Azure, a cloud service provided by Microsoft, and green cloud computing. The project URL can be found here: https://community.mis.temple.edu/efink/azure-and-green-cloud-computing-mis3406/
I was able to learn about Azure by comparing it to the cloud service we use in Cloud Architecture: Amazon Web Services, or AWS. AWS has helped me learn about cloud services by using it to create our project for the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission. Azure is very similar to AWS, yet has minuscule differences. Most cloud services will seem familiar as they help offer customers cloud solutions. I was also able to learn about green cloud computing. As the internet grows, the more energy it consumes, leading to higher carbon emissions. Businesses have prioritized sustainability and are looking for new ways to cut energy costs and carbon emissions.
