What Workloads are best suited for Windows Azure/Cloud?

While all applications can realize benefits from moving to the cloud, applications with certain workload patterns are particularly well suited to the cloud. The graphs below illustrate the most common scenarios:

  • On and off:  parallel processing applications, when large amounts of capacity are needed for a very short time frame for example an online state exam taken by thousands of students in one day
  • Growing fast:  start-up applications which may start with a few customers but may grow quickly to add many customers
  • Unpredictable bursts:  consumer applications like online games, social networks
  • Predictable bursts:  seasonal applications like shopping websites during the holiday season
