How Azure Works


  • Hypervisor helps in creating VMs on Physical Infrastructure. Preview


  • Azure takes the Hypervisor technology to a large scale Datacenters
  • For each Rack Azure adds a Fabric Controller.
  • Azure has orchestrator and it is exposed via APIs
  • Every request made on portal/cli/sdk reaches orchestrator.
  • Then Orchestrator finds the right rack and forwards the request to fabric controller.
  • Fabric Controller follows the orders from Orchestrator and creates necessary resources. Preview
