App Controller is a web-based management solution that provides the extension of many
of the on-premises virtualization capabilities to Windows Azure cloud services. We are
introducing this concept here because we will be covering Windows Azure cloud services in
Chapter 17, “Office Professional Plus Subscription.” Windows Azure can be leveraged in an
Office 365 deployment in lieu of implementing on-premises technologies. Therefore, it is
important to cover the options to manage Windows Azure from System Center.
Figure 5-6 shows how App Controller can deploy, monitor, and manage systems in
Windows Azure. These virtual machines can be provisioned within minutes and are an excellent
choice to create redundancies for dependent, on-premises Office 365 technologies such as
AD, AD FS, SQL, IIS, and Exchange.
Windows Azure securely provides your organization’s on-premises corporate network the
ability to deploy and manage Windows Azure virtual machines and published applications
in Windows Azure IaaS and PaaS. In essence, this effectively extends your organization’s
data center and allows it to leverage the financially backed 99.95 percent uptime SLA of
Windows Azure. This now aligns your on-premises Office 365 dependencies with the same
level of SLA as Office 365 services.
