The cloud consists of data centers around the world composed of NASs, SANs, and servers which are capable of housing insurmountable amounts of data. These data centers or “cloud storage” facilities grew by reducing client equipment costs through eliminating the need for on-premise equipment. These data centers allow data to be stored and accessed remotely from any location and from any device connected to the internet.
Besides Azure Virtual Machine (virtual server) creation, disk allocations, and blob storage, Azure Media Services stands out. Azure Media Services give organizations the ability to “live stream” data from blob storage or virtual machine and encoding platforms. This ability to freely access stored data and stream allows users and organizations to do 360-degree virtual reality streaming. Now the question becomes what services use “live streaming”? Many of these organizations may be familiar such as Facebook, YouTube, Comcast, and GoPro. These organizations that specialize in media broadcasting and the speed of getting the media to the masses have taken Azure Media Services to the next level of usage and automation.
