We are pleased to announce that you can now easily spin up your own Warewolf Virtual Machines on the Microsoft Azure platform. Warewolf on Azure gives you the power to produce highly scalable services within minutes.
On-Demand Resources in Azure
With Windows Azure, you can now scale your Warewolf Server on-demand, to grow along with your business needs. You can now easily create services with Warewolf that run reliably and scale from 10 to 10 thousand or even 10 million users — without writing a single line of code.
With Warewolf on Azure, you can develop hybrid applications that allow your on-premises applications to use cloud services. Using the Warewolf to Warewolf connectivity built into the Warewolf Server, Warewolf provides the perfect platform for your business. You can easily create the communications services you need to work between on-premises applications and the cloud, as well as mobile devices.
Warewolf supports all of Azure’s open standards and Internet protocols, such as HTTP, XML, SOAP, and REST which makes integration with Azure a breeze.
Simple Integration with other Microsoft online tools
For organizations that are reliant on Microsoft tools like SharePoint (which was recently ranked the No.1 platform for enterprise collaboration), Office 365 and Outlook, using a Warewolf on Azure Server makes perfect sense. You can use Warewolf on Azure to seamlessly integrate with Microsoft products on Azure. Many industry experts expect Azure to slowly but surely gain adoption due to this ability to offer users a completely seamless and integrated service package, and Warewolf is the perfect platform to use for all of your integration needs on Azure.
64-bit Windows VM
Warewolf ESB runs on a 64-Bit Windows 2008 Server virtual machine, with each instance of Warewolf running in its own VM. The hypervisor on which the Warewolf virtual machines run is designed specifically for the cloud. You don’t have deal with managing and maintaining the OS either; with Azure you can focus on the building your services, and don’t have to worry about the hardware.
Knowing that security is one of the biggest concerns for companies considering a move to the cloud, Microsoft designed Azure with security in mind. You can rest assured knowing that your Warewolf Server will be safe. Microsoft has designed Azure’s compliance framework to meet both industry-specific and regulatory requirements, such as ISO 27001, HIPAA, FedRAMP, SOC 1 and SOC 2, as well as country-specific standards including Australia IRAP, UK G-Cloud and Singapore MTCS. Microsoft was also the first to adopt the uniform international code of practice for cloud privacy, ISO/IEC 27018, which governs the processing of personal information by cloud service providers.
Azure is backed by Microsoft’s growing number of globally managed data centers. Currently Microsoft has data centers across 19 regions. Azure has a 99.95 percent availability and 24/7 tech support and health monitoring thrown into the deal too.
Warewolf also offers full 24/7 tech support for businesses that choose the Business VM, as well as full support for their basic users via the Azure support platform.
