Microsoft Azure services and competencies
Azure SQL Database
Azure SQL Database is a high-performance, reliable and secure relational database-as-a-service (DaaS) that uses the Microsoft SQL Server Engine. It can be used to build data-driven applications and websites in the programming language of choice without needing infrastructure management. As an application runs, SQL Database continuously learns its unique patterns, adaptively tunes performance and automatically improves reliability and data protection.
When demand for an application grows from a handful of devices and customers to millions, SQL Database is a DaaS that be scaled with virtually no downtime for the application. The Venform team has extensive experience building applications using Azure SQL Database and is able to help customers migrate their on-premise SQL database with it.
Azure Document DB
DocumentDB is a fully-managed NoSQL database service built for fast and predictable performance, high availability, elastic scaling, global distribution and ease of development. As a schema-free NoSQL database, it offers rich and familiar SQL query capabilities with consistent low latencies on JSON data. This ensures that 99 percent of reads are served under ten milliseconds, and 99 percent of writes are served under 15. These unique benefits make DocumentDB a great fit for web, mobile, gaming, IoT and many other applications that need seamless scale and global replication.
Azure DocumentDB exposes resources through a REST API that can be called by any language capable of making HTTP/HTTPS requests. Plus, DocumentDB allocates programming libraries for several popular languages and is compatible with MongoDB APIs. These client libraries simplify multiple aspects of working with Azure DocumentDB by handling details such as address caching, exception management, automatic retries and more. The Venform framework uses these APIs and libraries to communicate with DocumentDB and provide customers with the basic platform for developing their business applications.
Azure Redis Cache
Azure Redis Cache is a distributed and managed cache that assists customers in building highly-scalable and responsive applications by providing super-fast access to their data. The Venform framework provides turnkey solutions to connect with Redis-Cache APIs, which provides basic, standard and premium tiers. We either choose the right tier for our customers or work with them to understand their needs and help them decide which tier to choose under specific circumstances.
