MICROSOFT AZURE, Now Lets You Host Your Own Server!


Microsoft Azure

Microsoft Azure has notified the public of its preview launch of Azure Dedicated Host, this is a new cloud service that will enable users to run their virtual machine on single-tenant physical services, and this meant your security since you are not sharing your resources located on that server with an external source or someone else. Based on this, it is expected of the primary owner to have total control of all that is running on that machine.

Prior to this development, it’s understood ‘Microsoft Azure’ already offers isolated Virtual Machine sizes deployed for two very large virtual machine types. However, this move from Microsoft is seen as a follow up on what AWS and Google Cloud services offer. The previous service rendered by Azure in this respect will still be in place but comparatively limited with the new hosts.

The new Dedicated Host boasts of flexibility, while on the other hand, AWS is said to offer similar Dedicated Hosts, and also that of Google known as “sole-tenant nodes”.

Howbeit, Azure Dedicated host is designed to support Linux, Windows, and SQL Server virtual machines. In order to have this running, the company (Microsoft Azure) is offering two different processors that will power these machines. The first has a design specification of 2.3 GHz Intel Xeon E5-2673 v4 which can attain a clock speed of 3.5 gigahertz, while the second has the property of Intel Xeon Platinum 8168, single-core clock with speed up to 3.7 gigahertz, also its memory is within the range of 144GiB – 448GiB.

The prices for any of these start at $4.039 per hour, and the good news here is that the new Dedicated Host can help organizations achieve their goals by rendering data integrity, physical security, and monitoring desired by their clients. Users would practically have full control of any maintenance window that could affect their servers.
