What is Azure? In short, it’s Microsoft’s cloud platform: a growing collection of integrated services—compute, storage, data, networking, and app—that help you move faster, do more, and save money. But that’s just scratching the surface.
Azure is the only major cloud platform ranked by Gartner as an industry leer for both infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS). This powerful combination of managed and unmanaged services lets you build, deploy, and manage applications any way you like for unmatched productivity.
Some cloud providers make you choose between your datacenter and the public cloud. Not Azure. Its enterprise-proven hybrid cloud solutions give you the best of both worlds, expanding your IT options without added complexity. With Azure, data storage, backup, and recovery become more efficient and economical. It’s also easier to build applications that span both on-premises and the cloud.
Azure supports any operating system, language, tool, and framework— from Windows to Linux, SQL Server to Oracle, C# to Java. It puts the best of Windows and Linux ecosystems at your fingertips, so you can build great applications and services that work with every device
You’ll share the same enterprise-tested platform that powers Skype, Office 365, Bing, and Xbox. Azure offers a 99.95% availability SLA, 24x7 tech support, and round-the-clock service health monitoring. That’s why more than 57% of Fortune 500 companies rely on Azure today. From live streaming Olympic events to online multiplayer online games
Azure can quickly scale up or down to match demand, so you only pay for what you use. Per-minute billing and a commitment to match competitor prices for popular infrastructure services like compute, storage and bandwidth means you’re always getting an unbeatable price for performance.
Azure runs on a growing global network of Microsoft-managed datacenters across 19 regions, giving you a wide range of options for running applications and ensuring your customers always get great performance. Azure is the first multinational cloud provider in mainland China and is continuing to expand to new regions around the globe.

Microsoft Lync (formerly Microsoft Office Communicator) and Microsoft Lync for Mac are instant messaging clients used with Microsoft Lync Server or Lync Online available with Microsoft Office 365. They are replacements for Windows Messenger, which was used with Microsoft Exchange Server.
Both Microsoft Lync and Microsoft Lync for Mac are enterprise software; unlike Windows Live Messenger (and later Skype), they have a different feature set that is targeted toward corporate environments.
On 11 November 2014, Microsoft announced that in 2015 Lync will be replaced by Skype for Business. The next version of the communication software will combine features of Lync and the consumer Skype software.
• instant messaging
• Voice Over IP (VoIP)
• video conferencing inside the client software
• availability of contacts based on Microsoft Outlook contacts stored in a Microsoft Exchange Server
• users can retrieve contact lists from a local directory service such as Microsoft Exchange Server
• Microsoft Office can show if other people are working on the same document
• All communication between the clients takes place through a Microsoft Lync Server. This makes communications more secure, as messages do not need to leave the corporate intranet, unlike with the Internet-based Windows Live Messenger. The server can be set to relay messages to other instant messaging networks, avoiding installation of extra software at the client side.
• A number of client types are available for Microsoft Lync, including mobile clients.• uses SIP as the basis for its client communication protocol
• offers support for TLS and SRTP to encrypt and secure signaling and media traffic
• allows sharing files.

Your mobile app users expect to get the information they need in an intuitive format that takes full advantage of a device’s capabilities. Apps that don’t live up to expectation don’t get used.
That’s why native mobile apps, which offer device-specific experiences, are essential to gaining a competitive advantage through enterprise mobility. But it can be expensive and time-consuming to write separate code to support the unique requirements of each platform. Xamarin solves this challenge by equipping your development team with the tools to create native mobile apps in C#, quickly and cost-effectively, with the ability to share common code across iOS, Android, Windows, and Mac.
How do you put Xamarin to work in your organization? Consult the experts at Cyquent Technologies, Xamarin’s Premier Consulting Partner in Florida, to walk you through the process.

Microsoft RMS enables the flow of protected data on all important devices, of all important file types, and lets these files be used by all important people in a user’s collaboration circle. Yes, RMS will now protect any file type (not just Microsoft Office documents), let you access them on many devices (not just Windows PCs), and enable sharing with other organizations (not just within your organization). Furthermore Cyquent can perform simple, planned deployments of RMS or, if not deployed by the Cyquent, Information workers (IWs) can opt RMS on their own (dubbed ‘RMS for Individuals’) for free.
The Microsoft Rights Management suite is implemented as a Windows Azure service. For brevity, we reference it within as Azure RMS so as not to confuse with Windows Server Rights Management Services (aka RMS). It comprises a set of RMS applications that work on all your common devices, a set of software development kits, and related tooling. By leveraging Windows Azure , the Azure RMS service acts as a trusted hub for secure collaboration where one organization can easily share information securely with other organizations without additional setup or configuration. The other organization(s) may be existing Azure RMS customers but if not, they can use a free Azure ‘RMS for Individuals’ capability.
By using Rights Management Services (RMS) and the RMS client, you can augment an organization's security strategy by protecting information through persistent usage policies, which remain with the information, no matter where it is moved. You can use RMS to help prevent sensitive information—such as financial reports, product specifications, customer data, and confidential e-mail messages—from intentionally or accidentally getting into the wrong hands.
In the following sections, learn more about RMS, the required and optional features in RMS, and hardware and software used for running RMS. At the end of this topic, learn how to open the RMS console and how to find more information about RMS.
An RMS system includes a Windows Server® 2008 R2-based server running the Rights Management Services (RMS) server role that handles certificates and licensing, a database server, and the RMS client. The latest version of the RMS client is included as part of the Windows® 7 and Windows Vista® operating systems. The deployment of an RMS system provides the following benefits to an organization:
Safeguard sensitive information. Applications such as word processors, e-mail clients, and line-of-business applications can be RMS-enabled to help safeguard sensitive information Users can define who can open, modify, print, forward, or take other actions with the information. Organizations can create custom usage policy templates such as "confidential - re only" that can be applied directly to the information.
Persistent protection. RMS augments existing perimeter-based security solutions, such as firewalls and access control lists (ACLs), for better information protection by locking the usage rights within the document itself, controlling how information is used even after it has been opened by intended recipients.
Flexible and customizable technology . Independent software vendors (ISVs) and developers can RMS-enable any application or enable other servers, such as content management systems or portal servers running on Windows or other operating systems, to work with RMS to help safeguard sensitive information. ISVs are enabled to integrate information protection into server-based solutions such as document and records management, e-mail gateways and archival systems, automated workflows, and content inspection.
By using Server Manager, you can set up the following components of RMS:
Rights Management Services . The Rights Management Services ( RMS) role service is a required role service that installs the RMS components used to publish and consume rights-protected content.
Identity Federation Support . The identity federation support role service is an optional role service that allows federated identities to consume rights-protected content by using Federation Services.
Microsoft Federation Gateway Support . The Microsoft Federation Gateway is an identity service that runs over the Internet and mediates between an organization or business and the external services that the organization wants to use. The gateway connects users and other identities to the services that it works with, so that an organization only has to manage a single identity-federation relationship to enable its identities to access all Microsoft and Microsoft-based services they want to use.
RMS runs on a computer running the Windows Server 2008 R2 operating system. When the RMS server role is installed, the required services are installed, one of which is Internet Information Services (IIS). RMS also requires a database, such as Microsoft SQL Server, which can be run either on the same server as RMS or on a remote server and a Domain Services forest. The following table describes the minimum hardware requirements and recommendations for running Windows Server 2008 R2-based servers with the RMS server role.

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is one of the three fundamental service models of Cyquent Technologies alongside Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS). As with all Cyquent Technologies services it provides access to computing resource in a virtualised environment, “the Cloud”, across a public connection, usually the internet. In the case of IaaS the computing resource provided is specifically that of virtualised hardware, in other words, computing infrastructure. The definition includes such offerings as virtual server space, network connections, bandwidth, IP dresses and lo balancers. Physically, the pool of hardware resource is pulled from a multitude of servers and networks usually distributed across numerous data centers, all of which the cloud provider is responsible for maintaining. The client, on the other hand, is given access to the virtualised components in order to build their own IT platforms.
In common with the other two forms of cloud hosting, IaaS can be utilised by enterprise customers to create cost-effective and easily scalable IT solutions where the complexities and expenses of managing the underlying hardware are outsourced to the cloud provider. If the scale of a business customer’s operations fluctuate, or they are looking to expand, they can tap into the cloud resource as and when they need it rather than purchase, install and integrate hardware themselves.
IaaS, or Infrastructure as a Service, can help your organization reduce IT costs, leverage the latest IT equipment, deploy new infrastructure quickly and reduce IT personnel.
IaaS is a Cyquent Technologies service model, where basic computing resources like servers and storage are provisioned over the Internet. You only pay for the consumption of the services you use and pass on all responsibilities of managing the IT onto us, your IaaS provider.
Here's how our IaaS solution and IaaS consultants can help you:
• Assess your organizational requirements.
• Implement and configure IaaS service to suit your needs.
• Train staff on how to use and manage IaaS.
• Migrate your infrastructure and software to our IaaS service.
We help organizations move to the cloud. If you don't know what you want, but you recognize Cyquent Technologies as an enabler to reduce IT costs and improve efficiencies, we can do a free strategic Cyquent Technologies review to see where IaaS and other services can help you.
